Heather's Hues January 2021 Monthly Duo

Happy New Year, y'all! I hope you all had a happy and safe start to the new year. I know for many out there, times have been better, so please know that I'm sending out all my love and good vibes to any of you who need it. These swatches may be just a little late, but it looks like USPS is finally starting to catch up with the holiday rush, which is great news. For 2021's first Monthly Duo, the Hue-t-pies were tasked with submitting "Winter" themed photos! The polishes created have perfectly captured the chilly inspirations: a row of male and female cardinals perched on a fence in the snow, and a glowing aurora lit sky over snow covered trees. These beauties will be available throughout the month of January 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.]

"On The Fence About Winter"

Price: $12.50

Description: This is a gray crelly filled with a red-copper-gold shimmer, a mix of glitters in silver, brown, copper, and red, and a touch of multichrome flakes in red-copper-bronze and gold-silver. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is such a beautiful taupe polish! The shimmer and glitter are a perfect combo. I like how it's not super dense with glitter, but it is rather scattered. It applied very easily with coverage building nicely. In fact, I think most could probably get away with only 2 coats rather than the 3 I used here.

"Snowy Skies"

Price: $12.50

Description: This is a thermal that is purple when cold and teal green when warm. It's filled with a teal-blue-violet shimmer, holo dust and holo flakes, and iridescent flakes teal-green-blue-pink and teal-violet-fuschia. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is another one of Heather's fantastic thermals! The dense shimmer and flake give this polish a beautiful, subtle glow. Application was very easy and smooth with the first coat appearing rather sheer, but coverage build to full opacity in 3 thin coats. I used by handy-dandy space heater to capture the warm state here, but I have been wearing a test swatch on my thumb for a day or so and I've found it to transition rather easily, even on ice cube hands like mine.

Again, these beauties will be available throughout the month of January only at HeathersHues.com! Come join the Hue-t-pies to help with inspiring next month's duo: www.facebook.com/groups/HeathersHueTpies
