Hare Polish The Illuminated Life Collection: Part 2

Continuing on from yesterdays instalment of the Illuminated Life collection I have the final two polishes to share with you today...

Electric Flame

Electric Flame is a juicy peachy/coral jelly polish with the same blue iridescent glitters as the other polishes in the collection and some delicate purple glass flecks. I decided to layer three coats of this polish over a base of Cult Nails Enticing just to add to the opacity and the pale pink of the undies didn't interfere with the peach base of Electric Flame.

As with the rest of the collection its a little top coat hungry so I finished it off with a coat of Gelous and two coats of Seche Vite.

Medusa Luminosa

Medusa Luminosa is the most complicated of the four polishes. It has a mid purple jelly with a pink micro flakie/shimmer, gold glass flecks and the blue glowing, iridescent glitter. Once again I felt the need to layer this polish and used one coat of Layla Holographic Misty Blush as undies.

I was a little surprised and disappointed that I didn't really love this polish. When I saw the collection I thought Atolla and Medusa Luminosa would be the ones that I would love but this one just hasn't tickled my fancy for some reason. I cant quite put my finger on it :-(

Its weird though because when I look back at the photos I think wow what a gorgeous polish, but I remember not thinking that when I wore it. Maybe I need to try it with some different undies and give it another chance...

I topped this manicure off with one coat of Gelous and two cots of Seche Vite to achieve a smooth finish.
