Cuticula Nail Lacquer

"My Happy Place"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: Disney Parks, specifically inspired this month by Sleeping Beauty's castle at Disneyland.

Description: "My Happy Place" is an off white crelly full of a rainbow of iridescent shifting flakes, shiny metallic rose gold, gold, and blue flakes, and small platinum flakes. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus Cuticula's Limitless and Cloud Cover top coats.

Thoughts: This is a beautiful flakie packed crelly with a very feminine feel to it. Application was very easy and controlled with coverage building nicely with each coat. The iridescence in the matte finish was somewhat hard to capture on camera, but this is truly gorgeous when both gloss and matte.

Heather's Hues

"I Don't Need Oranges, I Need to Scream"

Price: $12.50 | No Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by a quote from Offred (June Osborne).

Description: "I Don't Need Oranges, I Need to Scream" is a vivid orange base with iridescent flakes in red/orange/gold/green and a mix of red and orange holo and metallic glitters. Shown here in 2 coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I’m loving this safety orange beauty! It’s packed with beautiful flakes and the scattered glitters and shreds are perfect in it. I experienced very easy, controlled application, with very nice opacity as well. I love it glossy, but I highly recommend trying it matte as well! Also, I wore it for about 24 hours and had absolutely zero staining.

Heather's Hues

WiTS Lotion scented in 'I Don't Need Oranges'

Price: $7.25 | 26 Cap

Theme/Fandom: The Handmaid's Tale, specifically inspired this month by a quote from Offred (June Osborne).

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 'I Don't Need Oranges' scent is described as a blend of satsuma, mandarin slices & peel, bergamot, spices and exotic fruits.*Please note: WiTS contains oils derived from seeds/nuts.*

Thoughts: 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. The scent is super refreshing! It smells authentically orange, like freshly zested peel. Once on the skin I get some possible hints of what reminds me of coconut as well.

LynBDesigns

"White Witch"

Price: $13.00 | 250 Cap

Theme/Fandom: Outlander, specifically inspired this month by the white witch.

Description: "White Witch" is a teal based green to silver to gold to purple to blue multichrome with linear holo. Shown here in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats. Also shown on thumb as a single coat over black with gloss top coat.

Thoughts: This is a gorgeous, shifty holo polish! The holo flare is super strong (even more so over black) and doesn't fade when a top coat is added. Application was very easy and controlled with opacity building nicely with each coat. When matte, the delicate olive green tone of the forefront shift stands out, while the clouded holo gives it an overall grayish or silvery tint.

Night Owl Lacquer

"Farosh"

Price: $12.80 | No Cap

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

Description: "Farosh" is a glowy neon green/yellow with green/gold shimmer and lots of gold/copper/green crystal chameleon flakes. Shown in 3 thin coats, plus gloss and matte top coats.

Thoughts: I absolutely LOVE this one! It's such a refreshing, bright neon green. It applies perfectly smooth and easily with each coat being packed with flakes. This is beautiful both gloss and matte.
