Aside from that, I've actually had a real live social life for a change! It is SO strange to go from hardly ever hanging out with friends to almost always having something to do. :) Here's a photo of my two awesome new buddies:

|Together, we make the 3 Amigas! :) hehe|
So anyways, that's another aspect to my absence!
But since this is primarily a polish blog, I suppose you'd like to see one, huh? This is one of the last polishes I wore before my nails became all different lengths and I cut them down to nubs. I give you another fabulous Hare Polish creation: Anemone Gardens!!!
Lookit that amazing jelly & glitter goodness!! L♥VE.From the second I saw her swatches of it, I knew I was going to buy it at the announced release. And I did.
Most of the photos I've seen of AG make it look like a cool-toned purple/fuchsia when IRL, it's a much warmer fuchsia almost magenta, more like the color of the circle glitters. I suppose it has an element of neon to it, hence the issue with capturing the color correctly. Neons don't play nice!
I love the "glowing blue shimmer" you can clearly see here! Some reviews said it wasn't very noticeable, but to me it sure is. Nikole's polishes are so interesting and usually have a lot going on - in a good way. Some indies I've seen & used to love have taken it to the extreme and there is just too much "stuff" on the nail, in my opinion. Hare has a wonderful balance.
The other nice thing about Hare Polish is despite having good-sized glitters, they are pretty darn smooth when dry, and this was no exception! I used two coats over the two coats of OPI's Care to Danse? that I happened to have on when this arrived. :)
Okay, I have to include this pic... Previously, I'd only ordered Hare Polish on Llarowe, but this time I purchased directly from her Etsy store as AG was a brand-new release. Look at the other adorable bunnies she uses to personalize her packages!
I especially love the "Hare Mail" pun. hehe! :D
|And of course, the adorable bunny on the bottle... baby. ;)|
