Hey chickas! Not long after I started getting into indie polishes, about a year ago or so, I really really got into Hare Polishes. I’m not really sure whether it’s just the wonderful polish creations or the branding or both, but if you asked me to choose one indie brand to use for the rest of my life, it’d be Hare for sure. Don’t get me wrong, I love other brands a LOT, there’s just something about HP that sucks me in with every new collection.
I have another one from the Last Queen of France collection today. This one isn’t for the faint hearted – you WILL be seen in this colour!! The collection is loosely based around Marie Antoinette. As I said in my review of ‘Let Them Eat…What?’, I don’t honestly know much about her, but I do LOVE the collection so… had to buy! This is another one I’ve had for nearly a year – I’ve worn it 2-3 times but haven’t yet blogged about it! Sacrilege!
Party Palace is a gorgeously bright, neon fuchsia jelly, packed with silvery blue shimmer, and white and red matte square glitters. It’s a pretty insane combination but it somehow looks amazing! I remember umming and ahhing over whether to buy this because I really wasn’t sure about how the colours would work together but I’m so happy I did. It’s one of those colours that looks very pink in direct light but in lower lighting leans much more purple. It’s vibrant, it’s crazy, it’s amazing.
PP is a little sheer being that it’s a jelly, so requires 3-4 coats for full opacity. I can still see a hint of nail line at 3. To be honest I think if this is something that bothers you, you should probably layer it over a similar colour as bright jellies often seem to enhance the nail line rather than hide it. The polish is a little thick but applies evenly and levels off fine, and it dries quickly. As it dries a little dull, I would recommend using a topcoat to get the most out of this nail varnish and to make the finish smooth. It is a little thick on the nail at 3 coats, which is why you can see a bit of shrinkage on my nails, which is something that happens commonly with thick coats of polish.
I adore this colour, it’s bright, it’s quirky, it’s VERY unique… I’ve never seen anything quite like it.
You can buy Party Palace here in the UK from Rainbow Connection, for £8.50, and free shipping on orders over £20. You can also buy it from the Hare Etsy store (when it’s in stock) for around £6.20, and Llarowe for around £7.20 (but don’t forget to factor in international shipping for both of these, and remember you might be charged by customs on expensive orders).
What do you think? Is it too soon in the year to be wearing fiercely bright colours?!
