There are some gorgeous polishes up for grabs in this month's HHC sale! I swear, the makers have been absolutely killing it lately! I received four of the offerings, and each of them is truly amazing! This month's pre-order sale starts on Monday, September 14th, and ends the following Monday, September 21st. These polishes, plus even more goodies will only be available at

Cuticula Scented Nail Care


Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Aquaman, specifically inspired this month by Queen Atlanna.

Description: "Atlanna" is a soft sky blue base with various shifting iridescent flakes, shifting chrome chameleon flakes, and silver platinum flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: This formula is amazing! It applies super smooth and easily, drying quickly as well. It is absolutely packed with a beautiful blend of flakes. This is a perfect, icy blue for the upcoming winter months, with beautiful glistening sparks of metallic goodness.

"It's Probably The Thing I Do Best"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Office, specifically inspired this month by none other than Kevin's Famous Chili.

Description: "It's Probably The Thing I Do Best" is an ash grey crelly with taupe microflakes, a mix of holo, holo flake, and copper and brown holo microglitters, as well as a mix of multichrome flakes in gold/bronze/silver, copper/gold/green, and red/orange/gold. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: What a perfect fall polish! This one has a buttery smooth formula that practically applies itself. It has wonderful opacity with a perfect distribution of the flakes. The flakes themselves are stunning and reminiscent of beautiful, crisp fall foliage.

"What A Dinosaur Would Do"

Price: $12.00 | 90 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Friends, specifically inspired this month by Joey's attempt at encouraging Ross to tell Rachel how he feels.

Description: "What A Dinosaur Would Do" is a pastel blue crelly base filled with pink to orange shifting shimmer and aqua to purple to pink shifting flakies. Shown here in 3 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is such a pretty, delicate sky blue! The flakes glow so beautifully when they catch the light. I definitely suggest trying this one matte, as it is stunning. It does sit naturally sheer, so I still had some VNL at 3 coats. This polish would be a perfect candidate for putting over a light blue or even white base if VNL isn't your thing. I did think the formula was a bit thicker than most LynB polishes, but this could be due to heat during transit. A few drops of thinner will fix it right up if this happens for you as well.

Night Owl Lacquer

"The Blood Moon Rises"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically inspired this month by the rising of the Blood Moon.

Description: "The Blood Moon Rises" is a bright red jelly filled with fuschia/purple/red/gold crystal chameleon flakes and charcoal sparkle flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is a must have. Period. It is stunning! Such a sultry, romantic red! Not only does it perfectly capture the inspiration, but it is has a fantastic flakie packed jelly formula that applies like a dream, with each coat adding more and more depth. The red base didn't stain my nail plate or cuticle, so any clean-up or touch-ups were super simple. I highly suggest trying this one matte as well. Gorgeous!
