Hella Handmade Creations | April 2021

Press Sample for Hella Handmade Creations
April 2021

This might be the earliest I’ve ever gotten a Hella Handmade Creations post up. I’m backup up on swatching a smidge due to moving – but this weekend I’ll be swatching away! Tonight (possibly tomorrow.. I’m losing steam) I have 14 polishes from the Hella Handmade Creations April 2021 shop to share!

This is going to be quite a shop – and with each polish I swatched, I was like “Ohh!” We go from light and airy to vampy and back. It’s beautiful.

For the fine details – for all photos shown – I used Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Peel Off Base, and Atomic Polish Quick Dry Top Coat. I purchased the Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues, but the Atomic Polish Top Coat was gifted to me in a swatcher pack with no expectations of a review or feature.

I do use artificial lighting for my photos. I get the most done at night, so I swatch a lot at night. My current setup uses GlamCor Pro Lights and I use the Ultra X Model and this Daylight Company Duo Daylight Lamp (affiliate link).

As you can probably tell, I am still using Kiara Sky Gelly Tips kit in Short Coffin. So my nails are not mine, however they are clear and do not alter the color of any of the polishes.

I’m early – but lets get this show on the road.

Alter Ego Body Care Products | Disco Music Bearded Iris

Theme: Bearded Irises

Description: Disco Music Bearded Iris is a medium orange base with orange holo microglitters, delicate gold shimmer and iridescent microglitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $10.00 | Cap: None

Atomic Polish | The Ashen Sun

Theme: Mistborn

Description: The Ashen Sun is a pink jelly base loaded with red to gold shimmer and iridescent flakes, which give it almost a reddish coral like appearance, but it shifts beautifully between orange, coral, bright magenta and red. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

Bee’s Knees Lacquer | Stop Beeping!

Theme: Ghost Adventures

Description: Stop Beeping! is a deep navy blue base with black to red mulichrome shimmer and scattered holo flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $12.50 | Cap: None

Bluebird Lacquer | You’re So Coo

Theme: Beautiful Birds from Around The World

Description: You’re So Coo is a medium lavender crelly base with green to turquoise to purple iridescent flakes and pink shimmer. The shimmer within it does give this an orchid tinged lavender look. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $12.00 | Cap: None

Cuticula | Brave Enough

Theme: Lindsey Stirling

Description: Brave Enough is a royal purple holographic jelly base loaded with turquoise, blue and rose gold metallic flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

This does dry down with a very mild texture, so you should be able to use 1 coat of top coat to smooth, but if you use a very thin top coat – you may need 2 coats.

Price: $12.50 | Cap: None

Girly Bits | Destination Serenity

Theme: Canadian Road Trip Series

Description: Destination Serenity is a sheer deep blue jelly base loaded with copper to red to gold shifting shimmer. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 250

Lollipop Posse Lacquer | To Live Life

Theme: Adventure Time

Description: To Live Life is an iridescent beauty. The base is a shimmer opal like shade that shifts orange to gold to green to pink and reddish, with pastel green to gold shifting flakes and holographic micro flecks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: None

LynBDesigns | Red Jamie

Theme: Outlander

Description: Red Jamie is a deep red multichrome jelly base that shifts from black to purple to raspberry to red to orange, with holographic micro flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $13.00 | Cap: 250

MLF Lacquer | Metamorphosis (Magnetic)

Theme: Butterfly

Description: Metamorphosis is a deep green linear holographic with light green magnetic pigment. I only magnetized the middle and ring fingers so you can see it both magnetized and unmagnetized. Both ways are beautiful! I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: $11.00 | Cap: 100

Night Owl Lacquer | Sword That Seals the Darkness

Theme: Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild

Description: Sword That Seals the Darkness is a silver holo base with a glowing green to aqua to blue shift with lots of holographic micro flakes and a subtle amount of charcoal flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.

Price: 12.80 | Cap: None

Pampered Polishes | Couch Burners

Theme: Bob’s Burgers

Price: $12.00 | Cap: None

Penelope Luz | Avalon

Theme: King Arthur

Description: Avalon is a medium blue jelly base with aqua to blue to violet iridescent flakes and silver holo micro glitters. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
