February 28th marks Heather's Hues 7th year in the Indie polish world! This is such an awesome accomplishment! This year has been tough for all of us, but I know things were especially rough for Heather. Knowing just some of the hurdles she managed to leap over this year is beyond commendable. She is truly a stronger woman than I could ever dream of being. Anyway, enough with the sappy stuff! To celebrate her lucky 7th anniversary, Heather has created a stunning quad of super sparkly, richly toned polishes, each with a name close to her heart. These special polishes will be available Sunday, February 28th at 10am Eastern, along with March's new Monthly Duo over at HeathersHues.com!

7 Year Anniversary Collection

"Love & Light"

"The world needs more love and light!" - Heather

Price: $12.50 each | $48 for set of four

Description: A berry pink jelly packed with a mix of holo sparkle, flakes, and microshreds, a glowing blue-violet-pink shimmer, and a touch of blue-violet-fuschia iridescent flakes. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Some may be able to reach opacity in only 2 coats.

Thoughts: "Love and light" goes with Heather like PB&J! This may just be my personal favorite of these four. It is such a bright and fun pink jelly with shimmer and flakes that seem to glow on their own. The formula is wonderful, so application was very easy. The metallic-like finish of each of these is just beautiful. Love it matte too.

"Do What Makes Your Soul Shine"

"Life is too short to spend a moment of it unhappy, so figure out what makes you happy and do it!" - Heather

Price: $12.50 each | $48 for set of four

Description: A bright blurple jelly packed with a mix of holo sparkle, flakes, and microshreds, a glowing pink-gold shimmer, and iridescent flakes in pink-red-orange. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Some may be able to reach opacity in only 2 coats.

Thoughts: This shade of purple screams Heather to me. It is the flakiest polish of the set. Filled with beautiful, shifty shimmer and flakes, this polish applied very easily and smooth. It, too, has a gorgeous, near metallic finish thanks to all the dense shimmer. It has such a soft, velvety look when matte.

"Karma"

"I firmly believe that you get back what you put out into the world, so put out that goodness!" - Heather

Price: $12.50 each | $48 for set of four

Description: An emerald green packed with a mix of holo sparkle, flakes, and microshreds, a glowing gold-green-turquoise shimmer, and a hint of green-cyan-sapphire multichrome flakes. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Some may be able to reach opacity in only 2 coats.

Thoughts: This is such a deep, rich green that's packed with dense shimmer. The scattered blue flakes and glitter shreds add a nice little touch of visual texture to this polish. The formula is again very nice, easy to control, and apply. I also love this one matte.

"And Still, I Rise"

"At the end of the day, despite all our troubles, we still get up and get it done." - Heather

Price: $12.50 each | $48 for set of four

Description: A classic blue packed with a mix of holo sparkle, flakes, and microshreds, and a blue-violet-pink-gold-green shifting shimmer. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Some may be able to reach opacity in only 2 coats.

Thoughts: This formula was slightly thicker compared to the other three of the set. It’s not bad or an issue by any means, but I would personally add about 10 drops of thinner or so. The shift of the shimmers is beautiful and strong. Yet again, another that's gorgeous when matte.

March 2021 Monthly Duo

For March's duo, the Hue-t-pies were tasked with submitting photos fitting the theme of 'Lucky Charms!' The polishes created have perfectly captured their inspirations: a bowl full of lucky charm inspired cookies, and a handful of gorgeous iridescent crystals! These beauties will be available throughout the month of March only at HeathersHues.com!

In case you're new to the Monthly Duo, each month Heather tasks the members of her Facebook fan group, the Hue-t-pies, to submit photos fitting a theme of her choice. The photos are whittled down to 10, then the group votes for their favorite 2 photos to inspire Heather to create something new and special for that month. Join in on the fun for next month, and peep at the inspiration photos for these by joining us in the Facebook group here: www.facebook.com/groups/HeathersHueTpies

[Note: In order to avoid any sort of copyright issues with the inspiration photos, I will not be posting them here.]

"Crystal Clear"

Price: $12.50

Description: A bright blue when cold to colorless when warm (the colorless state is a very sheer white.) It is jam-packed with blue to turquoise shimmer, a rainbow mix of iridescent flakes, and a touch of holo sparkle. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is absolutely packed with beautiful iridescent flakes and shimmer! Definitely has crystal vibes to it, especially when warm. Application was very easy, but the individual coats weren’t the most even. However, with each thin, quick-drying coat, overall coverage became even and opaque. I found it to transition very naturally and easily. It looks great both glossy and matte.

"Lucky Charmed Life"

Price: $12.50

Description: A white crelly with a pinch of holo flakes and microshreds, emerald microglitters, and a variety of matte glitters in a rainbow of colors. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I'm loving this one! It is such a beautiful white crelly! The twinkling little holo sparks and soft pastel glitters work perfectly together is the pure white base. It matches the inspiration perfectly! It applied in easy, thin coats with very nice glitter distribution. No kind of glitter fishing was needed. I thought the texture of the finish was pretty smooth considering all the glitter in it. Love this one matte too!

All these beauties will be available Sunday, February 28th at 10am Eastern! The anniversary polishes will be around for a while, but the March duo will only be available throughout the month of March. Get your bottles at HeathersHues.com!
