HARE Heat Plague

This is two coats of HARE Heat Plague over Nubar Forest. Nubar Forest is one of my favourite dark green creams.

I used a coat of Gelous and a coat of SV to smooth this out. Nothing more to say - I love this combination of colours :)

You can buy HARE polishes from Llarowe llarowe hare page. They ship internationally at a very fair price and have great customer service. Nikole sells her polishes direct from her Etsy shop too HAREpolish.

Colour geek notes - why do the colours in this polish work so well?
Nikole has done all the work already in this polish and applied her colour theory very well! We've got a green base with violet and orange glitters ~ orange, violet and green are equally spaced on the colour wheel so the effect is balanced. The technical term for three colours like this is a triad. 

Compare this to the HARE Polish Afterglow (look at PolishAholic swatches as I swapped my bottle away without taking photographs), which uses the same glitters in a blue base. I would have liked Afterglow much better if she'd used a yellow glitter rather than the purple ~ just my opinion of course, feel free to disagree!

beautybay is the easiest way to buy Nubar in the UK.


  1. this is one of my favorite hare polishes!!! the color combo is kind of weird, but i think its so insanely cool at the same time :D

    btw, do you have anything like a little tokyo or japan town over in the uk? that's typically where i find pa nail colors, along with other japanese cosmetics!

  2. Thanks! I love green and pink together! Asteroid Turf is another of my HARE favourites :)

    Thank you so much for the suggestion about Japan Town. I'm not sure, tbh, we definitely have China Town in some of our bigger cities; I'll need to investigate........

  3. I need to get a HARE polish one day, if only because I love their logo... I think I am going to have to keep my eyes peeled in the nail sales!
