Hare Polish Bury the Hatchetfish Swatch and Review

Here's another Hare Polish that I managed to snag from the last restock, Bury the Hatchetfish from the Illuminated collection.  I was drawn to this one because of the light shade and the iridescent glow that seem to radiate from within the polish.  I think the name of this is very clever, by combining two phrases/words together and creating a polish to mimic the coloring of a hatchetfish.  If you haven't seen a hatchetfish I recommend googling it.  I'm not going to post a photo of it here because it's just that ugly - it's unfortunate because the coloring is actually pretty.  I guess you could say it's Pretty Ugly.  Bury the Hatchetfish is a nude jelly base with transparent iridescent pink and purple glitter.  It's really extraordinary, just like her other polishes.  The only downfall I found in application was that I needed four coats for opacity, which is a first for me when it comes to Hare polishes.  I would recommend using a basecoat for this, such as Sally Hansen's Commander in Chic. It dried a bit gritty so I used a layer of Gelous followed by Poshe for shine.

Do you think it looks like the color of a Hatchetfish?

    1. Hi! No, it wasn't thick at all, it just needed more coats than usual for Hares in general.

  2. This color looks amazing on you.
