Hare Polish Cosmo Blossoms Review and Swatches

  Hi! I've been on a real indie kick lately.. and I've gone a little nuts, I have a bunch more in the mail from all different brands, cant wait! anywho today I have Hare polish Cosmo Blossom to share with you all. This one and hare's Afterglow were my 1st and they did not disappoint.

Cosmo Blossoms is medium purple with micro and small green glitter. It can be opaque in 3-4 coats, however in these pics it is 2 coats layered over Essie's Nice is Nice.

I took these pictures in the sun but they still turned out a touch more blue, in real life they are bit more grape purple.

The formula on this was awesome, I never had to fuss with the glitter it just went on even, yay! It also dried super fast but it was little rough so used 2 coats on Butter London's topcoat, but 1 coat of something thick like Seche Vete would also work just fine.

So what do you think? Have you tried any hares, and what are your favorites? 
You can pick these up on Llarowe for $11.

Kelara Lacquers Aunt Theresa Review and Swatches

 Hey everyone, Its been a while since I made a post, sorry about that! The lighting isn't the best today it been storming all day today and Iv'e got some creepy guys outside my windows fixing something upstairs LOL... but i didn't want that to stop me from reviewing one new indie polishes, Kelara Lacquers in Aunt Theresa.

 This polish is part of Kelara's Colors for a Cause collection. Every color is this collection has a different coordination charity, for every polish sold they donate money to that charity. At $9 for a full size and $4.50 for a mini they will donate either 1-2 dollars. Aunt Theresa's charity is The Lustgarten Foundation for Pancreatic Cancer Research.

no topcoat

no topcoat

This polish is medium grayed out purple with iridescent flakies, I love it! It was a touch thick but easy to use, I got full opacity in 3 coats. It dried fast and to a satin finish and a bit textured, I would suggest using a top coat to make it smooth and shiny.

the words on the label started to rub off when my hands were wet, so aware of that, luckily
the  name of the polish is on the bottom :)

So what do you think about this polish? I love the color and I love the bottle is very unique. I also love the charity that it goes to, I lost my aunt to the pancreatic cancer about 10 years ago so this polish was very fitting. 

They are sold on Etsy and you can find them HERE

bigger then it should be collective nail polish haul pt. 2

Hey guys! so here is the other half on my large collective haul, i got these over about 2 months and from a wide range of places, Nail Polish Canada, Winners, eBay, the Polish Boutique (on Facebook), and Superstore. I've been on such a polish kick and i don't know where it came from lol, i do know that it helps me from biting my nails if i keep them painted so ill pretend that makes it better ha! the pictures are pretty true to life but some may be a little washed out. If you have any questions or anything just ask!

China Glaze Empowerment
This color is almost identical to O.P.I Pink Friday i will have pic of that below

China Glaze Cherry pie
This is kind of a pink red with pink shimmers 

To see the slight shimmers

China Glaze Gold Digger
I really wanted a gold but nothing to yellow this is a nice medium gold.

O.P.I  Pink Friday 

O.P.I  Pink Friday and China Glaze empowerment
Again these two are almost identical CG maybe a little less cool toned.

O.P.I  I Juggle Men
This is a clear base with blue/purple/pink micro shimmer, very pretty 

O.P.I  Panda-monium Pink
A Very cool toned pink that almost leans purple, the pic here makes a bit
more purple then in person. 

O.P.I.   Fly
I would say this is darker teal that leans more blue.

Orly Rock Solid
I dont even know what to say about this one... so pretty, a dark gray
base with holo-ish non dense glitter?

Essie Action
A supper bright creamcicle is what I'm gonna say its not quite neon
but its bright and its orange, no red or pink undertones.

Revlon Whimsical
this one is so light blue its almost see thu on the nails. It has rose gold
and blue glitter, i haven't found the best polish to wear with with and
you need to pair it it... if you have any suggestions let me know!

Butter London Trout Pout
Bright non-neon pink coral 

Deborah Lippmann Mermaids Dream
This is soo multi dimensional blue teal glitter, it is so fine but so dense
you only need 2 coats. 

It goes on your nails just like it looks in the bottle! looks like a
 mermaids tale :)

I love all the colors but i really didn't need both the pinks! I wouldn't have picked up empowerment if it hadn't come in a 3 pack with the other 2 China Glaze.So it might be in a blog sale soon! I would say My top are mermaids dream and trout pout, the Orly one is up there but to he honest i haven't put it on my nails yet... i feel its more of a fall/winter color.

If anyone has any requests please let me know and I hope you have an awesome day!!!!!
