So I was wearing OPI Mermaid's Tears, still giddy about finding it, and while I was ready to change things up a little, I wasn't ready to take it off. Enter Hare Polish Dauphine of Decadence for a layering combination that I don't think I could possibly love more.
Dauphine of Decadence, from the Hare Polish Spring 2013: The Last Queen of France Collection, is a gorgeously fine glitter topper. It contains beautiful golden hexes and squares and the loveliest little pale mint hexes, along with a subtle golden shimmer. It's both delicate and glamorous, and this is just one coat--applied normally, even! The fantastic formula flowed smoothy and evenly. No need to dab or fill in. Crazy freaking awesome.
The pale mint does fade just a little against the medium seafoam of Mermaid's Tears, but I am cuckoo-bananas about this combination. In fact these are two of just three polishes I have packed to take with me on this month-long trip! I mean, yeah, I'm probably going to buy a bunch more in the States, but that's beside the point, which is as follows: This polish, this combo? TOTALLY LOVE. I'm definitely going to need more Hare Polish in my life!
And now I have my fingers crossed so very hard that these posts are all coming up as scheduled. If they are, then I should be on my way back to Hong Kong as this one goes up! I'd love to have a couple more scheduled after this one too in case of jet lag--or in case something happens like it did after my last month away, during which I completely forgot how to paint my nails in a straight line--but, y'know, I'd like a pony too. Neither is looking likely, so my pony-less self will just have to look forward to bouncing back quickly once I'm reunited with my stash and my other nail supplies. And hope like mad that my travel tradition doesn't hold...For some reason, no matter where I'm heading or for how long, whenever I pack a bag and head out of town, I always break at least one nail. Last Christmas took me all the way down to little bitty niblet nails, so please, please wish me luck this trip, and I'll meet y'all back here next month! By which I mean this week. Woooo, time travel!
