Let's take a look at an old favourite, Hare Polish A Positive. I'm not sure what happened to Hare Polish, but it seems like they aren't for sale anymore. I know that Nikole, the creator had om health issues, but since I've been out of the polish loop I can't give more info than that.
Anyway, A Postivie is a a magenta pink jelly with hex glitter in different sizes. It's absolutely gorgeous. I think this is my favourite from Hare Polish. I love the depth of it. The jelly base is just transluscent enough to let the glitters of the first coat peek through and really create layers of glitter.
I actually bought my self a back up bottle in a blog sale a while ago.
The formula is good. It's a bit thick but in no way difficult to apply. Three coats give full coverage. The finish becomes a bit texture because of the large amount of glitter but top coat makes it smooth.
What you see in the pictures are three coats of Hare Polish A Positive and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.

Anyone ele that has started to long For fall? I'm in that inbetween Summer and Fall mood. You know, when you don't want Summer to end but really loking forward to Fall. Ys, It's still warm outside but I want fall colours on my nails right now, hence I wore Bear Pawih Mulbearry Lane today.
Mulbearry Lane is a deep purple-ish, wine red holo. The holographic effect is super strong and the colour is realy sexy. I love the colour. It looks more purpe in some lights and in others it looks more win red. A gorgeous fall colour.
The formula is great. It's very pigmented but doesn't stain. The finish becomes shiny and smooth. This is two coats and top coat.

Today I'll show you a group custom for a Smitten Polish FB-group. As you may know Smitten is now caled Dreamland Lacquer.
Shoe Polish is a white scattered holo with opalescent flakies and pink shimmer. It's absolutely gorgeous. It reminds me of snow, winter and ice. It's so beautiful. I'm actually a bit sad that you can't get a hold of this one anymore cause I'd like aback up of it. That's how much I like it. The pink shimmer was super hard for my camera to capture. It's more prominent in real life and in indirect sunlight. These pictures are taken in artificial lighting.
The formula was good. It was a bit thick, but in no way difficult to apply. The first two coats were a bit patchy but a third leveled the finish out. The finish becomes slightly textured so top coat i needed for a smooth finish. This is three coats and top coat.
what you see in the pictures are three coats of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.

Let's take look at one of my favourite reds, Lilypad Lacquer Rebel at Heart. I can't believe I haven't shown you this one before because I've worn it more times than I can remember.
Rebel at Heart is a deep, deep blood red holo. It's so stunning. It's so vibrant and really vampy. Honestly, your polish collection won't be complete without this one.
The formula is great, a little thin but since it's so pigemented one coat gives full coverage. I did two for more depth.
What you see in the pictures are twoc oats of Lilypad Lacquer Rebel at Heart and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.

Today I want to show you Colors by Llarowe I'll be at the Lake.
I'll be at the Lake is a bright blue metallic with gorgeous turquoise, pink and purple shimmer and a subtle holographic effect. These pictures are taken in artificial lighting, which brings out the beautiful holo effect and turquoise shimmer. In indirect sunlight it looks almost multichrome , shifting between blue, pink and purple.
I found it to be a tad sheer. This is three coats and top coat. Otherwise the formula is great. I'ts completely self leveling and in no way streaky.

Today I want to show you Glam Polish No Lei-Overs! Collection. It's a gorgeous six piece collection inspired by the Hawaiian islands. And yes, it really makes you think of beaches, coconut drinks and palm trees in the sun.
There are four glitters and two holos in this collection. The formulas of all of them are great. The glitters are thick but not too thick and easy to apply. The holos go on so smoothly and levels out perfectly.
I really wish I was at a beach in a tropical paradise. Here in Sweden it seems like fall is already on its way. It's already starting to get colder and darker outside.
All photos are taken in artificial lighting.
Hawaii Kai is a turquoise leaning teal base with blue, turquoise, teal and bright green glitter. This is the Ocean in a bottle. It's absolutely gorgeous and one of my favorites in the collection.
Two coats and top coat.
Lanikai Dreaming is pale gold holo with lots and lots of matte pink and white glitter. It's fun, flirty and feminine. Since the base is so neutral this is perfect for both work and a friday night out. The base tones it down while still being really glittery and pretty. The only prolem I had with this one is that even after two coats of top coat the finish was slightly textured.
Two coats and top coat.
Hanalei Sunset is a gorgeous blurple jelly with blue, pink and purple prismatic glitter. It has so much depth. It was super hard to photograph though. This is one of those polishes you really have to see for yourself.
Two coats and top coat
Lei'd in Lahaina
Lei'd in Lahaina is a magenta holo with magenta, pink, white and even som copper glitter. It sparkles like crazy! Even though there's so much glitter in it one coat of top coat does the trick and makes the finish shiny and smooth.
Two coats and top coat.
Hibiscus Hideaway is an orange toned red holo. In some lightings it leans more orange and in other more red. In some it even leans pinkish red. This is my favourite from the collection. I'm a sucker for vibrant reds and this one is perfection. The holo is strong and adds depth to the aready beautiful colour of the base. And, it doesn't stain (!!!) even though it's so pigmented.
One coat and top coat.
Waikiki Wahine is a berry pink holo with blue and purple shimmer in it. This is very pretty, but the one I liked the least in the collection. Don't got me wrong, I really like it, it's just that I like the others more.
Two coats and top coat.

Today I'll share a new favourite of mine, Cupcake Berry Good Looking from the Berry Patch Collection.
The Berry Patch Collection consists of six wondefully holographic polishes. This was the one that was a must have for me.
I kept seeing this everywhere and loved the swatches of it. It's even more amazing in real life.
Berry Good Looking is an almost neon violet super linear holo. It's vibrant, intense and gorgeous. Right now it's my favourite polish. It's just that beautiful.
The formula is great. Two coats give ful coverage. The finish becomes shiny and smooth.
