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

It's the end of yet another month, but this time, a very special month. Not only is it time for the beautiful new monthly duo, but February 28th marks Heather's Hues 6th year in the Indie polish world. This is such a huge accomplishment and a well deserved occasion for these six very special new polishes.

So. Releases for February 28th at 8am Eastern include: March's "Top of the Mornin' to Ya!" inspired monthly duo, the Heather's Hues 6 Year Anniversary Collection, and a brand new lineup of wonderful spring scents for all cuticle care products!

All these goodies will be available at www.heathershues.com.

March's "Top of the Mornin' to Ya!" Inspired Duo

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.]

"It's a Beautiful Moor-ning"

Price: $12.00

Description: A sheer sky blue crelly filled with a strong pink-gold-green shifting shimmer and holo flakes. Shown here in 3 very thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is perfection. It is delicate yet bold, and packed with shifty shimmers. It applies like butter in easy, thin layers. Two coats is excellent for those who like a little VNL, and 3 coats leaves perfect opacity for those who like full coverage.

"Antiquated & Jaded"

Price: $12.50

Description: A tri-thermal that shifts from a blackened green when cold, shamrock in transition, and green apple when warm. It's been kissed with gold holo dust, gold microflakes, gold metallic and gold holo microshreds, and lime/blue/gold multichrome flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This, my friends, is the ideal polish for St. Patrick's Day! I found it to apply very smoothly and to transition easily and naturally, showcasing all three wonderful stages of green. Heather's thermals are always phenomenal, so if you've never gotten the opportunity to try one, this may just be that little pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

6 Year Anniversary Collection

Each polish in this collection has been meticulously designed and named by Heather to reflect on the past six years. Included are three flakie polishes, which are Heather's current favorite polish type, and three of what she considers to be OG Heather's Hues finishes: a linear holo, a squishy jelly, and a glitter crelly. I strongly encourage you to pop on over to the Heather's Hues Instagram feed, or join the Hue-t-pies Facebook group to read Heather's story behind each of these six, heartfelt polishes.

"Metanoia"

[meh-ta-noy-ah] (n.) the journey of changing one's mind, heart, self, or way of life; spiritual conversion

Price: $11.00 individually or $60.00 for all six

Description: A black jelly packed with multichrome flakes in teal-purple-pink and violet-blue-red, iridescent flakes in purple-green-blue and clear holographic glitter. Shown here in 3 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This black beauty is subtle, yet filled with color. It applies smoothly and easily with the flakes laying flat and adding so much depth. I found this one to be gorgeous matte.

"Elysian"

[el-ee-sian] (adj) beautiful or creative; divinely inspired, peaceful and perfect

Price: $11.00 individually or $60.00 for all six

Description: A rich indigo filled with linear holo. Shown here in 2 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is an ideal linear holo polish that applies beautifully, and the royal purple shade couldn't be more fitting for this collection. Such deeply pigmented polishes can sometimes cause staining, but I can assure you that I wore this for a full 24 hours and had no staining at all!

"Meraki"

[may-rah-kee] (v.) to do something with soul, creativity, or love; to put something of yourself into your work

Price: $11.00 individually or $60.00 for all six

Description: A raspberry jelly filled with iridescent violet-pink-green shifting shimmer, violet-pink-gold multichrome flakes, and pink-gold-green iridescent flakes. Shown here in 2 easy coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I'm obsessed with this one! Heather has admitted that pink is her least favorite color, but somehow she always pulls off the most stunning pinks! This one is just so shimmery and shifty with a chrome-like metallic finish. It is just as gorgeous matte as it is glossy.

"Eunoia"

[yoo-noy-uh] (n.) a pure and well-balanced mind; a good spirit

Price: $11.00 individually or $60.00 for all six

Description: An ultramarine blue jelly filled with a mix of holo and metallic glitters in blue, purple, teal, and pink and a hint of violet-pink-green-gold iridescent flakes. Shown here in 3 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a super squishy jelly packed with all the goodies! Application is super smooth and easy. The depth and squishyness just get better and better with each coat! Add a matte top coat, and you have a completely new, amazing look!

"Hygge"

[hue-gah] (n.) the ritual of enjoying life's simple pleasures

Price: $11.00 individually or $60.00 for all six Description: A soft periwinkle kissed with iridescent flakes in pink, blue, violet, and aqua, tiny lavender holo glitters, and silver holo micro-shreds. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is just so soft and delicate, it is the perfect spring color! It applies like butter and the dense flakes lay beautifully flat. I used 3 thin coats, but shorter nails could definitely reach opacity in only 2 coats.

"Kefi"

[ke-fi] (n.) the spirit of joy, enthusiasm, high spirits, and frenzy in which good times and passion for life are expressed with an abundance of excitement, happiness, and fun

Price: $11.00 individually or $60.00 for all six Description: A white crelly sprinkled with a rainbow of neon glitters. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: The level of fun packed into this polish is through the roof! It applies so nicely, with the various glitters distributing super evenly. No fishing necessary! Also, it can sometimes be hard to reach full opacity with white polishes, but not this one. It reaches beautiful opacity in 3 thin coats, while still allowing each glitter from the layers beneath to shine through.

All the beautiful polishes shown above plus brand new spring scents will be available February 28th, at 8am Eastern only at www.heathershues.com. While the 6 Year Anniversary polishes are not currently limited, keep in mind that the monthly duo will only be available for the month of March, so don't miss out!

Congratulations, Heather! I've only known you for a couple of these awesome six years, but I can't thank you enough for being such a wonderful person, mentor, and friend. My life path would be drastically different if it wasn't for you. I look forward to many more years of watching your business grow, as I play my part in helping spread the love of Heather's Hues.💕
