HARE: Swanky Soiree

Pin It
Hare Swanky Soiree

I was a little sad that there was no Hare holiday collection set to release this year. THEN - BAM!- right when I had that thought... Hare posted that she was releasing 2 limited edition polishes for the holidays in a collection called Paint the Town Red. Yesssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssssss! I only grabbed one of the 2 since I decided to be nice and grab one for a friend ;]

I think it's no secret that Hare is one of my top polish brands. Hare has had an amazing year producing some amazing polishes, I can't see Nikole's creations for next year!

Swatches of Swanky Soiree after the jump!

REVLON: Girly & Heavenly

Pin It Good evening! Figured  I'd write this post up before we get slammed by a storm and the power is potentially lost!

Revlon Girly (left) and Heavenly (right)

These are 2 new Revlon polishes! Nail bloggers seem to be desperately trying to find them! THANKFULLY after stalking the heck out of K-mart and Rite Aid, I found the last 2 bottles in my Rite Aid store! It's kind of funny, I was thinking last night how this time last year I was searching for Revlon Starry Pink/Popular and Whimsical! Haha

Like Revlon Whimsical was a dupe of Glitter in the Air, one of these Revlon polishes seem to be another dupe for a Deborah Lippmann polish. Revlon Girly and Heavenly are what I will be swatching today, they both come from Revlon's Bubble Gum Days Urban Nights Collection.

Swatches and such after the jump!
