Here we are: the last HARE to wear. I, er…dare…d…to wear it. >_> (Sorry, I’m really reaching here.)
You will moan and groan at my jokes and you will like it!
When I looked at each bottle, I picked this out as my favorite. I think I said exactly “BLUE AND PINK AND PURPLE AND GREEN YESSSS” when I first held it in my hands. Then when I wore it, it wasn’t my favorite anymore. I’ll tell you why in a sec. Here are some pretty pictures while you wait.
This is two coats of Midsummer’s Midnight over a-england Camelot. Midsummer’s Midnight contains green and pink hexes, and pink and blue glitter. It layers perfectly over black obvi, but I really want to try it over a dark blue or pink or purple or green. I have no idea if it will work, but science is all about trying different methods to achieve a result, either good or bad! :D Application was no different from all current HARE Polishes: smooth, more than enough glitter payoff, and an extra smooth surface with Gelous/SV.
This was my favorite in the bottle because it reminded me of my favorite hi-tops as a kid in the 80s. You had them as well, and they were your favorite, too. I kinda like that neon everything has made a comeback; it is super fun and reminds me of my childhood. All these colors work incredibly well together.
Now, this is why this is no longer my favorite HARE from the summer collection: do you see many blue squares on my nails? Not a lot, right? I had to fish all the ones on my nails out. I was hoping they would be easier to get (or that there would be more in the bottle), but I think they were all stuck on the side of my bottle and it was a pain in the behind to get them all on my nail. That bummed me out because I loved seeing the pink and the blue complement the purple and the green really well.
Some final thoughts on the spring/summer duo and the summer collection:
I have noticed that some of the new HAREs (in particular, the ones in the spring/summer duo and the summer set) have a very similar mix of glitters, but with different base colors or additions of other colored glitters. I don’t really know how to feel about this, since I really like all of the colors. I know at least one person has mentioned it to me, but that’s about it. I know it would bother others. They apply so well and the formula/application has improved over time that I don’t know if I would consider it a “minus” as much as the next person, though.
The summer foursome is easily my favorite collection this year. I couldn’t find many base colors to pair the spring/summer duo with, but each color in both epitomizes the season this year. And, well, every year.
There was no color I didn’t like, and there were even some awesome surprise winners. These are some of my favorite polishes this year, and I don’t think I’ve really liked a whole collection as much as this. Hopefully I’ve created some lemmings for you all, whether it’s all of them or just one.
Thanks for reading!
