Heather's Hues Monthly Duo June 2020 + Throwback Pre-Order

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

June has arrived and summer is right around the corner! With stay home orders starting to relax across the country, I think we're all itching to get out into the world, maybe do some traveling, and just see other people in general. For June's Monthly Duo, Heather tasked the Hue-t-pies to submit photos fitting the theme "Oh The Places You'll Go!" Of course, Heather has nailed it once again, creating a stunning pair perfect for the upcoming summer! On top of the duo this month, Heather is also bringing back an old favorite chosen by the Hue-t-pies, which just so happens to be one of my favorite polishes OF ALL TIME!! You can pick up the duo right now, and pre-order "There Upon A Rainbow...2.0" 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.]

"Paris 'Pank'"

Price: $12.50

Description: "Paris 'Pank'" is a neon pink packed with a blue to violet to pink iridescent shimmer and a mix of orange-pink iridescent and blue-violet-red multichrome flakes. Shown here as 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Over time, it's become a bit of an inside joke, but Heather does NOT make pinks, she makes PANKS!! While pink is admittedly her least favorite color, man, does she know how to make a perfect pank?! I'm literally OBSESSED with this color! It is a perfect neon for summer and the dark contrasting flakes and glowing shimmer just throw it over the top. It applies like a dream too, with a very easy to control formula that called for little to no edge clean up. This, my friends, is a pank at its finest!

"Wisteria Gardens"

Price: $12.50

Description: "Wisteria Gardens" is a thermal shifting from violet (cold state) to a sheer periwinkle (warm state) and filled with a mix of shimmer, iridescent and multichrome flakes, and glitters in greens, purples, and blues. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Heather nailed this one! Every color from the inspiration photo is represented here beautifully. It has a very smooth, easily self-leveling formula with buildable opacity. I opted for 3 thin coats, but I believe shorter nails could get away with 2 normal coats for perfect opacity. The thermal transition is more distinct to the eye than on camera, but is still somewhat subtle. I wore it mattified for a few days and not only did I fall in love with it, but I also found it to transition quite easily and naturally throughout the day, even on my ice cube hands.

Throwback Pre-Order: "There Upon A Rainbow...2.0"

Price: $12.50

Description: "There Upon a Rainbow...2.0" is a white crelly packed with a generous mix of multichrome and metallic flakes in a rainbow of colors. The photos shown here are of the original version, and show 3 thin coats plus gloss and matte top coats. This throwback is from August 2019 and this is a PRE-ORDER so please allow up to 2 weeks for shipping. *PLEASE NOTE*: Due to one of the flakes being discontinued, a different flake that looks exactly the same is being substituted. It is just slightly larger, but in order to be completely transparent, Heather is calling this the 2.0 version!

Thoughts: The Hue-t-pies have done it! Y'ALL! This is not only one of my favorite polishes from Heather, it is one of my favorites OF ALL TIME! It is the perfect flakie crelly! It is a white base, but the dense flakes naturally give it a light greyish tone. I'm just so happy to see it make a return!

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