Hella Handmade Creations August 2020

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

August is shaping up to be quite an exciting month for HHC! While many of the amazing makers are continuing their chosen fandoms or themes, a handful are starting new themes, wrapping up current themes, and a couple are even joining HHC for the very first time! Sadly, HHC and the indie community as a whole will be saying goodbye to Colors by Llarowe, as August's HHC offering will be the brand's last and final polish. New adventures are calling maker Leah Ann, and I truly wish her all the best on her future journey!

The pre-order sale starts on Friday, August 14th, and ends the following Friday, August 21st. These polishes, plus even more goodies will only be available at hellahandmadecreations.com.

Cuticula Scented Nail Care

"Mera"

Price: $12.00 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Cuticula is joining HHC for the very first time with her chosen theme of Aquaman, specifically inspired this month by Princess Mera.

Description: "Mera" is a mint green base with silver holographic pigment, turquoise metallic flakes, lime green metallic flakes, shifting iridescent flakes, and platinum silver flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: First off, a big warm welcome to Amanda who is joining the HHC party for the first time this month! Woo! And honestly, what a way to start! This polish is amazing! It applies like a dream and dries quickly, without much texture. The finish created by all the add-ins is so unique and creates a look that is reminiscent of a beautiful geode. I have a bit of a weakness for seafoamy-like colors, and I can honestly say that this polish is one of my new personal favorites!

Heather's Hues

"Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Office, specifically inspired this month by Jim impersonating Dwight.

Description: "Bears, Beets, Battlestar Galactica" is a tan crelly filled with a red-orange-gold-green shimmer, a mix of gold and copper holo dust, and holo flakies. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: What a perfect nude! The neutral shade is super office friendly, and would be ideal for any occasion. It applies like butter, and dries beautifully smooth. I absolutely love this one. Subtle, yet stunning. It sparkles like beautiful beach sands in the sun, and would be perfect for beachy themed nail art ideas!

LynBDesigns

"We Were on a Break"

Price: $12.00 | 90 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Friends, specifically inspired this month by Ross and Rachel's debatable break.

Description: "We Were on a Break" a deep purple to white thermal with red to violet to gold shifting shimmer, micro holo flakies, and green to blue to purple shifting flakies. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a beautiful thermal! It applied easily in thin coats, and transitioned very easily as well. The electric purple cold state is buffered by a soft cornflower blue mid-tone while transitioning to the somewhat translucent white warm state. The flakes are scattered and on the lighter side, but they contrast beautifully to the base colors.

Night Owl Lacquer

"Breath of the Wild"

Price: $13.00 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Night Owl is starting a brand new theme this month with Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically inspired this month by the inner cover art of Link climbing a cliff at sunset.

Description: "Breath of the Wild" is a vibrant blue filled with fuschia/gold/green shimmer and gold crystal flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: The shifty shimmers are absolutely packed in this one! It sits on the sheer side, so I did still have a bit of VNL at 3 thin coats. But I found the coverage to be very buildable, and the jelly base makes it a perfect candidate for topping a creme undie if you like complete opacity. The gold flakes did settle rather quickly, so I let the bottle sit upside down, shaking every so often, for about an hour before applying and had no issues.
