BCB Lacquers

"Magellanic Cloud"

Price: $13.00 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: BCB Lacquers is joining HHC for the first time with her chosen theme of Galaxies, specifically inspired this month by Magellanic Clouds.

Description: "Magellanic Cloud" is a purple polish loaded with iridescent color shifting flakes, teal and rose sparks with a touch of holo. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Some may be able to reach opacity in only 2 coats.

Thoughts: This is a gorgeous midnight purple polish packed with dense shimmer and a rainbow of flakes. The pink flakes seem to stand out the most to my eye in person, and they just look so gorgeous against the deep purple base and sparks of blue shimmer. Application was smooth and easy. I did notice a few rather sheer spots with the first coat, but coverage built nicely with each additional coat.

Cuticula Nail Lacquer

"Magic In The Air"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Disney Parks, specifically inspired this month by the rose gold fireworks from one of the many firework shows at Disneyland.

Description: "Magic In The Air" is a smokey lavender crelly base with shiny metallic rose gold flakes and bright pink holographic glitters. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: The pink metallic flakes in this are some of my absolute personal favorites from Cuticula. The flakes themselves are super dense and in combination with the scattered pink holo glitters, this polish has such a beautiful and feminine feel. Application was super smooth, and each coat dried nice and quick.

Heather's Hues

"You're Contraband"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by Commander Waterford sneaking June/Offred into Jezebel's.

Description: "You're Contraband" is a black base filled with a gold-green-blue shimmer, gold holo, gold hex glitters, holo gold shreds, and gold-silver multichrome flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Y'all... This. Polish. Is. Stunning! It is both elegant and sophisticated, giving me a bit of New Years Eve decor vibes. The gold holo flakes and gold/green/blue shimmer work so perfectly with the gold hex glitters and black jelly base. The formula itself did seem just a touch thick, so I added a few drops of thinner for the second coat and found the application to be much more smooth than the first coat.

Heather's Hues

WiTS Lotion scented in 'Walking in the Past'

Price: $7.25 | 26 Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by Commander Waterford sneaking June/Offred into Jezebel's.

Description: "What is This Sorcery?" or "WiTS" Lotion is packed full of skin-loving, nourishing natural ingredients that absorb quickly and leave your skin ultra moisturized. The 'Walking in the Past' scent is described as a warm and exotic Nag Champa blend; a mix of woodsy notes with light florals and rich amber. *Please note: WiTS contains oils derived from seeds/nuts.*

Thoughts: I'm absolutely obsessed with this scent! In fact, it may just be one of my favorite scents Heather has put out. It smells so rich and expensive, being a perfect mix of woodsy, floral, and even some slightly sweet notes. The sandalwood notes from the Nag Champa blend is definitely what makes this so special though. Love it!

LynBDesigns

"Je Suis Prest"

Price: $13.00 | 250 Cap

Theme/Fandom: This is the final polish in Lynb's Outlander series, specifically inspired this month by the Clan Fraser motto meaning "I am ready."

Description: "Je Suis Prest" is a blackened plum based multichrome with purple to gold to green to pink shifts and holo flakies. Shown here in 4 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: The shift of this polish is super strong and absolutely gorgeous! The formula is beautiful, but does sit rather sheer. I still had some uneven spots at 3 thin coats, and needed a fourth for even and opaque coverage. The shifty, multichrome nature of this polish does make it a great candidate for 1 to 2 thin coats over black if you'd like to conserve it or just use fewer coats.

Night Owl Lacquer

"Dinraal"

Price: $13.00 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically inspired this month by the dragon Dinraal.

Description: "Dinraal" is a fiery neon orange with red/gold shimmer, burgundy/red/gold & gold/bronze/green crystal chameleon flakes. Shown in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: Photos just don't do this one justice! It is a stunning, flakie packed orange that is absolutely perfect for the upcoming summer months. Application was lovely, with the formula having very nice opacity for being such a bright neon orange. I did have to do a bit of color correcting in my photos. My camera wanted so bad for this to be a yellow-orange, and refused to believe it was actually a red-orange.
