Heather's Hues August 2021 Monthly Duo

August's duo is a power couple, y'all! I'm loving both of these gorgeous polishes. One is a perfect shade for capping off summer, while the other is a wonderful and warm welcome to the fall season! For this duo, the Hue-t-pies were tasked with submitting photos fitting the theme of 'Macro or Microscopic.' Heather has perfectly captured the inspiration photos: a microscopic look at Irish Pale Ale, and a peaceful macro of a dew covered dandelion! These beauties will be available throughout the month of August 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

"Punch-Drunk Love"

Price: $12.50

Description: This is a deep berry base packed with a mix of iridescent and multichrome flakes in fuchsia, red, orange, and gold, plus different sizes of matte black glitters. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is ready for fall and Halloween! It is such a rich and vibrant shade of purple, having just the right amount of magenta lean to it to make it feel both warm and cool at the same time. The crelly formula is fantastic, with each coat being filled with flakes and glitters and being nicely opaque. I opted for a single top coat, but for a perfectly smooth finish, two would for sure do the trick. As for the name, I have to admit, I'd never heard this phrase, so I had to google it. Lol. I didn't know it was a movie as well!

"Wishes"

Price: $12.50

Description: This is a sheer blue base packed with a teal to blue shimmer and a mix of holo glitters and flakes. It also has periwinkle and sky blue glitters, baby blue holo microshreds, and a hint of emerald-teal-blue multichrome flakes. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Also shown as a single finger swatch in 1 coat over black with gloss top coat.

Thoughts: This polish is glitzy, glamorous, and eye-catching! Plus, it's such a calming shade of blue, making me think of clear summer skies. The jelly base sits sheer, but it is packed with all the beautiful, twinkling add-ins that help to build coverage with each thin coat. Application was smooth and easy, drying down nice and quick as well. While some of the glitz is muted, I do still love the look of the shimmers and flakes when matte.

Again, August's Duo will be available throughout the month of August only at HeathersHues.com!
