Hella Handmade Creations November 2020

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

The HHC shop looks to be filled with such a wide variety of polishes this month! There's glitters, flakies, and simmers galore! I have reviewed four of these beautiful, unique offerings! This month's pre-order sale starts on Saturday, November 14th, and ends the following Saturday, November 21st. These polishes, plus even more goodies will only be available at hellahandmadecreations.com.

Cuticula

"The Land and Sea Are One"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Aquaman, specifically inspired this month by Ricou, the Fishermen King. This is the FINAL polish in Cuticula's Aquaman series.

Description: "The Land and Sea Are One" is a green jelly base with a rainbow or shifting iridescent flakes, metallic bronze flakes, and neon green and blue glitters. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: There's a lot going on in this polish, but it's all amazing! The base itself is on the sheer side, but coverage builds nicely thanks to the variety of add-ins. The thin coats are quick drying, but definitely dry with texture. I used a single coat of gloss top coat, but 2 coats would smooth it out nicely. Cuticula's Aquaman theme has been such a treat to swatch. This little collection of four polishes is just stunning. What a way to make a debut into the HHC family!

Heather's Hues

"Santa Bond"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Office, specifically inspired this month by Michael Scott as Bond, Santa Bond.

Description: "Santa Bond" is a berry red packed with holo micro-glitters, microshreds, and flakes, and a touch of gold holo glitters and flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is such a beautiful, sultry red! An absolutely perfect Christmas polish. The formula is perfect, with application being super smooth and easy. Clean up and touch ups from cuticles were simple as well. I experienced no staining of the cuticle nor of the nail plate.

LynBDesigns

"Was That Place...the Sun?"

Price: $12.00 | 90 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Friends, specifically inspired this month by Ross's spray tan mishap.

Description: "Was That Place...the Sun?" is a juicy orange to a juicy sheer yellow thermal with aqua to purple to pink shifting flakies, and micro holo shreds. Shown here in 3 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: The combo of the add-ins in this orange to yellow base makes this a very unique thermal polish! I love the electric, glowing flakes and holo glitter shreds together, contrasting against the warm toned base. Application was very easy, in thin, quick drying coats. The polish transitions color states very easily as well.

Night Owl Lacquer

"Hyrule Castle"

Price: $12.00 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically inspired this month by Hyrule Castle while ruled by Calamity Ganon.

Description: "Hyrule Castle" is a dark grey crelly filled with charcoal sparkle flakies and purple/burgundy/red/copper multichrome flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish absolutely nailed the inspiration! The shifty flakes catch the light beautifully against the deep grey base. The very easy to control formula calls for little to no touch up or clean up. I found the coverage to be sheer, but buildable. This polish is very nice when matte as well.
