HARE POLISH: Flight of the Flamingos, Dancing Bird of Paradise, & Neon Palms

Pin It
Hare Polish (L->R) Flight of the Flamingos,
Dancing Bird of Paradise, and Neon Palms

Happy Friday! Today I have something special to show you. I often get asked what my favorite indie polish brand is, and today I get to share it with you. To me, Hare Polish puts out super unique polish mixes with great applications. Obviously, if you look in my tags there's only 1 tag for Hare Polish. I kinda hoard them and keep them to myself, I probably have like 6-7 I haven't swatched lmfao. I treat them like my children, it's kinda sad hahahah.  Just because it's my favorite brand doesn't mean I'll review any lighter, just saying I'm excited to share with you :] After the jump I have 3 polishes from Hare Polish's latest collection: The Tropics are Calling.
