HHC is back again! And this month's shop looks to be FILLED with shimmery, flakie, glittery goodness! Each of the makers shown here will be continuing on with their current chosen theme or fandom for the month of July. The pre-order sale starts on Tuesday, July 14th, and ends the following Tuesday, July 21st. These polishes, plus even more goodies will only be available at hellahandmadecreations.com.
"I'm Gonna Lose My Freakin' Mind"
Price: $12.50 | No Cap
Theme/Fandom: The Office, specifically inspired this month by Jim's infamous Jello pranks.
Description: “I'm Gonna Lose My Freakin' Mind” is a neon yellow-green jelly packed with iridescent red-gold-green shimmer and flakes and a touch of holo microflakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.
Thoughts: I have been waiting for Heather to pull a highlighter polish out of her bag and, boy, has she done it! This blinding neon is perfect for wrapping up the summer months. It applies super smooth and has a very easy to control formula. Due to the jelly nature, there will still be some VNL even with 3 coats. If that's not your thing, a white creme base will not only provide more coverage, but make the neon base pop even more!

"We Said Be Aloof Not a Doof"
Price: $12.00 | 90 Cap
Theme/Fandom: Friends, specifically inspired this month by an exchange between Monica and Chandler.
Description: "We Said Be Aloof Not a Doof" is a blue to pink thermal with red to gold to green shifting flakies, a touch of holo shimmer, and red to green shifting shimmer. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.
Thoughts: The amount of flake and shimmer packed into this polish is amazing! It just catches so much light, it is truly beautiful. If you've followed me for a while, you'll know that I'm a literal ice cube when it comes to thermals. After a day of wear, this polish mostly sat in the cold state, but it did transition easily during normal daily activities. I found the formula itself to sit a touch on the thicker side, not liking to be overworked too much. Being that it is summer here in Georgia, and 90+ degree daily temps aren't unusual, it could have thickened up a bit in transit. If this ever happens to you, a few drops of thinner fixes it right up and brings it back to normal!

Night Owl Lacquer
"Anyone Else Feel Like a Rainbow"
Price: $12.50 | No Cap
Theme/Fandom: That 70's Show, specifically inspired this month by a quote from menopausal Kitty Foreman. This will be the last polish of this series from Night Owl.
Description: "Anyone Else Feel Like a Rainbow" is a light & bright sky blue crelly filled with a rainbow of color shifting crystal chameleon flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.
Thoughts: This is another perfect flakie packed polish from Night Owl, with such a sweet and delicate look! It has a super smooth formula that applies easily in nice, thin coats with the flakes laying down beautifully, leaving little to no texture when dry. I highly recommend trying a matte top coat with this one as well. In fact, I fell in love with it matte. Gorgeous!
