Hey everybody! You know something? Blogging buds are the best! I have a modest little wishlist on here, and my sweet friend Emily from Em's Polish Paradise noticed that I was craving a certain polish that she happened to have...so she sent it to me, all the way from Australia. <3
I've had my eye on Hooky at the Hamlet by Hare Polish ever since it came out, but due to some reason or another (out of stock, bleeding bank account, allergies), I never picked it up. So, I got home from work, the night before my birthday (!!!), and there it was, in all its strangely-hued glory...
The legends are true. This color of this polish is nearly impossible to capture correctly. The top picture comes the closest...I know my skin looks a bit more anemic than usual, but I at least wanted you to see what the color looked like. Hooky at the Hamlet comes from the 2013 Last Queen of France collection.
After careful consideration and much ogling, I would have to describe Hooky at the Hamlet as 50/50 green and blue. There are small and medium white hexes, with some little white squares as well. There is also a blue shimmer that's quite pretty. I've read that this polish is a jelly, but it seemed like a crelly to me, and it dries sort of matte. I'm just full of nailed-down details today! :D I used 3 thin coats with 2 coats of top coat...just because I like shiny things. :)
What do you think of this crazy color? The combination of the unique color, problem-free formula, and the BUNNY make Hooky at the Hamlet a total winner! Hare Polish can be purchased on Etsy.
And the only thing better than scratching another one off the ol' wishlist is the feeling you get when a friend gives it to you. <3 Thank you again, Emily! :)
Thanks for stopping by, and have a lovely day!
