Cuticula Nail Lacquer

"The Upside"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Lindsey Stirling, specifically inspired this month by her song, "The Upside."

Description: "The Upside" is a pink jelly base with a slight purple tinge full of silver holographic flakes, pink holographic glitters, and a sprinkling of shiny blue metallic flakes throughout. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: This polish makes me think of cotton candy! It's just so sweet and fun. Very nice, easy to control formula, with little to no cleanup needed. The base is sheer, so coverage is built by the dense glitters and flakes for the most part. Each thin coat dries nice and quickly, leaving a somewhat glitter textured finish behind. A single coat of top coat is enough to smooth this out though.

Heather's Hues

"Treason & Coconuts"

Price: $12.50 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: A Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by Serena Joy.

Description: "Treason & Coconuts" is a black when cold and when warm, it is a deep teal...a "Wives Teal" if you will. It has an iridescent shimmer that shifts gold-green-turquoise, holo flakes, and green-teal-cyan-sapphire multichrome flakes. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is such a beautiful thermal! The green to aqua shimmer and the speckled looking finish from the other flakes and glitters is so perfect. It almost reminds me of snowfall. Application was very simple and smooth. It has great coverage, being opaque in just 2 coats. It transitions very easily, not needing much outside assistance. I was able to wear it over night and found it to transition very naturally. It looks great matte as well.

Heather's Hues

WiTS Lotion scented in 'Serena's Greenhouse'

Price: $7.25 | 30 Cap

Theme/Fandom: A Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired by Serena's Greenhouse.

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 'Serena's Greenhouse' scent has notes of lemon, grapefruit, English ivy, jasmine, green apple, neroli, musk, vanilla, and fern moss.*Please note: WiTS contains oils derived from seeds/nuts.*

Thoughts: I love love LOVE this scent! It smells so fresh and green. Like a cooling petrichor scent. I was fully expecting a more floral scent, but it's not very floral at all. As I've said before, WiTS has been my go-to lotion for years now! I always have a jar somewhere within reach. It absorbs quickly with a non-greasy formula, and provides intense hydration. A little goes a long way. I would highly recommend it.

LynBDesigns

"Blood of My Blood"

Price: $13.00 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Outlander, specifically inspired this month by Jamie and Claire.

Description: "Blood of My Blood" is a burgundy based multichrome that shifts from green to blue to purple to pink with hints of holo sparkle. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is such a gorgeous, shifty multichrome! The formula is on the thin side (but not too thin), so thin coats are best to avoid cuticle floods. Individual coats are sheer, but apply very easily and evenly with coverage building to opacity no problem. The holo microflakes have a very strong holo flash and are set off beautifully by a gloss top coat.

MLF Lacquer

"Butterfly Kisses"

Price: $11.00 | 100 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Butterflies, specifically inspired this month by the common blue butterfly.

Description: "Butterfly Kisses" is a bright pastel blue with aqua/purple/pink iridescent flakies, blue shimmer, linear holographic pigment, scattered silver holographic micro glitters, and blue galaxy glitters. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish was a surprise sleeper! While I found it beautiful in the bottle, I actually really fell in love with it once swatched. Application was easy and perfectly smooth. Individual coats are sheer, but coverage builds nicely. The “ghost” type flakes are perfectly used in this polish. They disappear at some angles and glow beautifully at others. The mix of these flakes with blue holo glitters and holo dust is such a great combination. This looks very nice when matte as well.

Night Owl Lacquer

"Champions"

Price: $13.00 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Legend of Zelda Breath of the Wild, specifically inspired this month by the Champions as they appear in their spirit forms.

Description: "Champions" is a vibrant turquoise linear holographic with turquoise shimmer. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This is a perfect, simple linear holo that matches the inspiration to a tee. The holo flare is so strong! Application was very easy and smooth with opacity being reached in just 2 coats. I didn't notice or have any issues with brush strokes either. Even though it does cloud the holo effect, this polish is beautiful when matte as well.

Wildflower Lacquer

"Si Una Vez"

Price: $12.75 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Selena Revisited, specifically inspired this month by Selena in a beautiful multicolored beach dress.

Description: "Si Una Vez" is a burgundy base with red to green shimmer and packed with holo flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: This polish is truly beautiful! It feels dark, sultry, and rich. The formula is perfect, so application was super easy. Each of the thin coats is sheer, but coverage builds nicely. A matte top coat actually works well with this too.
