Heather's Hues Monthly Duo August 2020

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

I don't know how it was for you guys, but July has certainly seemed to creep slowly on by... At least compared to the last several months, anyway. I welcome August with open arms! It IS the threshold month to fall after all! And oh man, am I ready for fall!! These 100 degree summer days are getting really old, really quick. lol.

For August's Monthly Duo, Heather tasked the Hue-t-pies to submit photos fitting the theme "Furry, Feathered, & Finned" The polishes created have perfectly captured the inspirations of a colorful black-backed dwarf-kingfisher bird, and a hypnotically vibrant purple frog!

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.]

"Flake Flight"

Price: $12.50

Description: "Flake Flight" is a charcoal jelly packed with holo, a mix of multichrome and iridescent flakes in pink/orange/gold/green and neon pink and green glitters. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Heather is getting a jump start on fall with this flakie beauty! The glitters are a perfect accent to the flakes and the holo dust adds such a pretty rainbow spark! It applies very easily in nice, thin coats with each coat adding more beautiful dimension from the shifty flakes. The jelly base allows for some topper possibilities as well!

"Hop to It"

Price: $12.50

Description: "Hop to It" is a dusty mauve crelly kissed with iridescent orange-pink-gold-green shimmer and flakes, holo sparkle, as well as multichrome flakes in blue-purple-pink and violet-pink-gold. Shown here in 2 coats, plus 2 coats gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is such a perfect match to the inspiration photo! It is just as flakie packed as "Flake Flight," if not even more so! I love finding big flakes, and I actually ended up with a few nice big chonkin' flakes in some of my swatches! The crelly base applies like butter and self-levels beautifully. It does have a textured finish when dry, so I oped for 2 coats of gloss top coat.

These beauties will be available throughout the month of August only at HeathersHues.com!
