Hare Polish Stir Crazy Spring 2015 Collection + Hare Polish Archipelago 2.0: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review 
Hello! I have Hare Polish's newest collection to share with you. The Stir Crazy Collection is a Spring 2015 release, consisting of five polishes, all crelly bases with flakes and glitter. 

The formula for these five are on the sheer side, I needed no less than three coats for full coverage for each of the polishes. I would have liked for them to be more opaque but I totally get why they are somewhat sheer, you have to find the just right opacity for those flakes and shimmer to shine through without becoming lost in the base color. You could easily layer these if you like but I prefer to build to opacity instead, I like like the squishy look that a crelly has. 

These polishes though, they are worth the patience. I am always surprised as well as blown away by what Hare comes up with. Born to Roam is my favorite of the set but then I have yet to meet a mint green that I didn't need.

I have lots of nostalgic feelings for the original as not only was it my first Hare Polish but it was my first indie polish, purchased way back in August 2011. This updated version is pretty damn awesome, lots of glitter so make sure to double topcoat it. 

Here is a comparison between the original Archipelago and Archipelago 2.0
