Heather's Hues April 2021 Monthly Duo and Glitz & Glitter Custom

*Products shown here were provided to me as press samples in exchange for photos and feedback. All thoughts and opinions are my own.*

For April's duo, the Hue-t-pies were tasked with submitting photos fitting the theme of 'Springtime!' The polishes created have perfectly captured their inspirations: a field full of bright and colorful tulips, and a cozy egg filled nest surrounded by magenta flowers! These beauties will be available throughout the month of April 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

"Not-So-Empty Nest"

Price: $12.50

Description: This is a holo base with taupe shimmer, filled with an assortment of flakes and glitters in gold, bronze, turquoise, and magenta. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I LOVE this!! It is such a fun and yet elegant mix of glitters, flakes, and holo that perfectly captures the inspiration photo. Application was perfectly smooth and easy, with a wonderful natural distribution of the glitters. I thought the formula seemed a bit thick at first, but once I began applying, I realized it was actually perfect! Love the look of this one matte as well.

"Spring Tulips"

Price: $12.50

Description: This is a bright green base filled with a mix of glitters in every color and a hint of emerald and gold flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus 2 coats gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a beautiful, cheery spring green! This polish is packed with colorful glitters and sparkly flakes, so I found that using light brush strokes made for an easy application. I opted for 2 coats of top coat to bury the glitter texture, and while this isn't totally necessary, it does make for a nice smooth finish.

"It's Not Just a Phase"

Price: $12.00

Description: This is a blue-violet jelly packed with a mix of glitters, flakes, and microshreds in a variety of blue, purple, pink, teal, and silver. Shown in 2 coats, plus 2 coats of gloss top coat and matte top coat.

Thoughts: This polish has it all but the kitchen sink! It’s got so many sizes and shapes of glitters, flakes, and more! Opacity is great and the glitter is super dense, so light handed brush strokes work best to evenly distribute everything. I did find the formula to be somewhat thick, so after the first coat, I added about 15-20 drops of thinner and found it to apply much smoother. I informed Heather about this, so I believe the formula will be adjusted accordingly. I did opt for 2 coats of top coat to smooth out the finish, but this is not a necessary step. This polish looks great when matte as well.

Availability and Ordering Info: This polish was created exclusively for members of the Glitz & Glitter Groupies Facebook group. You MUST be a member of the group to order it, so feel free to come join!
