The first Hella Handmade Creations shop of 2021 is here, and the makers have started the year off with a bang! I have five of this month's beautiful offerings here to share with you! January's pre-order sale starts on Thursday, January 14th, and ends the following Thursday, January 21st. These polishes, plus even more goodies will only be available at hellahandmadecreations.com.

Cuticula Nail Lacquer

"Shatter Me"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Lindsey Stirling, specifically inspired this month by the music video for Shatter Me where she is dressed in pink and dancing in a shattered snow globe.

Description: "Shatter Me" is a charcoal base with a tinge of blue with iridescent shifting flakes from pink to orange, silver flakes, and rose gold flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is a stunner! It applied very smoothly even with the super dense amount of beautiful flakes. The flake mix itself is absolutely perfect, with the rose gold and silver being a great combo. It dried quickly with a flakie textured finish, but Limitless did a great job to help smooth it out. This is also gorgeous with a matte top coat.

Heather's Hues

"Blessed Be the Fruit"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Heather's Hues is starting a new theme this month with A Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by the standard Gilead greeting used in the show.

Description: "Blessed Be the Fruit" is a blackened red to bright red thermal packed with a variety of holo and red to pink sparks. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Heather always makes wonderful thermals that transition beautifully. The formula is not too thick or thin, so application of this one was smooth and easy to control. It has very good coverage, reaching perfect opacity in just 2 coats. It transitions very easily. I didn't have any trouble holding the warm state, nor did I need ice water to show the cold or transition states.

LynBDesigns

"Dinna Fash"

Price: $13.00 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: LynBDesigns is starting a new theme this month with Outlander, specifically inspired this month by the Scottish phrase for "don't worry" that is commonly used in the show.

Description: "Dinna Fash" is a bronze based multi chrome with intense green to pink to purple shifts and linear holo with holo flakies Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I absolutely love this one! It's packed with super shifty shimmers. The formula is phenomenal as well. It applied super smooth and easily with wonderful coverage. In fact, I think most could probably get away with only 2 coats to reach opacity.

Night Owl Lacquer

"Great Fairy"

Price: $13.00 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically inspired this month by the Great Fairy in the Akkala region, Mija.

Description: "Great Fairy" is a lavender base filled with pink/gold/green & silver/aqua/pink crystal chameleon flakes and holographic micro flakies. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Night Owl never ceases to amaze me when it comes to flakie polishes! This one is packed with beautiful shifting flake and sparkling holo. It has such a delicate, feminine feel, which is perfect to represent the Great Fairy. It applied easily in thin coats with building coverage. I also really like the look of it matte as well.

Wildflower Lacquer

"Captive Heart"

Price: $12.75 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Starting this month, Wildflower is revisiting one of their previous themes of Selena, specifically inspired this month by Selena performing in her iconic purple jumpsuit.

Description: "Captive Heart" is a deep magenta base with strong indigo shifting shimmer and scattered holo flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is stunning! The shimmer gives it such a strong, beautiful glow from within. It has a very nice formula with fantastic coverage, nearly being a single coater. The thin coats dry quickly and smoothly. I love the soft, silky look of it when matte as well.
