Respectably Flashy: Hare Polish Return to Nature

Hey everybody!  Have you ever found yourself, all of a sudden, being drawn to a polish color that never appealed to you in the past?  That's where I am right now.  My favorite polishes are dark, vampy colors and bold stuff with full-bodied flavor.  But out of nowhere, I have been going nuts over pastels and neutrals.  I don't get it.  Must be a hormone thing.  Anyway, as long as I'm wearing things atypical to me, it sure doesn't hurt when the polish is as lovely as this one...Hare Polish Return to Nature, from The Last Queen of France 2013 Spring Collection.

Hare Polish Return to Nature

Return to Nature is a beige-colored crelly (creme/jelly) with square and hex gold and silver glitters.  And I didn't even realize it until I took the bottle shot, but there are white squares in there as well.  Oh, and don't forget the gold shimmer!  Mmmmm...

Return to Nature IS beige, but it is absolutely taupe under fluorescent lighting.  I like to point out these lighting differences because I work under fluorescent lighting, and I have gotten to the office before and noticed that my polish was way different than it looked at home.  And that *really* irks me when I'm trying to match my clothes! :)


Return to Nature is probably not the best color for my nearly colorless skin, but I think it's such an attractive polish that I don't mind the fact that it's not my usual bold blend.  This color would look beautiful against darker skin.  I used 3 coats by itself for the photos and got full coverage.  The application was great.

So, do you think Marie Antoinette liked neutrals too?

This was my first Hare Polish, and I really love it!  Return to Nature has the flash of glitter whilst being a very respectable and office-friendly color.  Just think of the whole look as amped up mannequin hands. :)

What do you think of Return to Nature?  Do you love the Hare Polish bunny bottles?  And most importantly, do you think I need some sort of dietary supplement for loving neutrals all of a sudden? 

Hare Polish can be purchased at their Etsy store.

  5. BUNNY!!!! :D I think it's soft and lovely on you and I LOVE your term, respectably flashy. Love it. And, I totally dig neutrals in general-- like you, I love my dark and vampies, but I love my sheer nudes and neutrals just as much. Anything more classic in nature. I've been finding myself REALLY liking blues, lately, though, like, gravitating towards them, and I feel like I need a dietary supplement for that, lol. The whole thing reminds me of my mom speaking incredulously to me as a kid of my "wild" cousin from Orange County who wore BLUE NAIL POLISH of all things. The awesome thing is that my mom's changed her tune, too.

    1. You know, I think all those colors that weren't of the standard variety were disparaged until around the time of OPI Russian Navy. I can remember that was the first polish that made me really think that wearing blue could be acceptable. It seems strange now to NOT wear blue or green or black. And yeah..."respectably flashy" is just another one of my adverb/adjective terms to which I'm so hopelessly addicted. See? Hopelessly addicted. :P

  6. Those new Hare labels are so great. I used to avoid green nail polish but now buy them all the time; I'm not sure what happened.

    1. I know, right?! I mean GREEN? I used to think green nail polish was only for punk rock chicks. Now it's high fashion! :P And I must say, I'm glad it is!
