Happy Tuesday! I have my Hella Handmade Creations January 2023 post to share tonight!
We have 13 items in this month’s post to share, but be sure to check out the shop for lots more!
For the fine details – for all photos shown – I used Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues Peel Off Base, and Sweet & Sour Lacquer Gloss Sauce . I purchased the Vapid Lacquer Commitment Issues, Sweet & Sour Lacquer gifted me their Gloss Sauce.
Be sure to check out my YouTube application video for all 13 items as well:
My lighting set up was changed. The new lamps give a much truer to color photo with less Photoshop manipulation. So now, since I use artificial lighting due to my day job, my new set up involves 2 Neatfi XL Lamps from Amazon (affiliate link) as well as this Daylight Company Duo Daylight Lamp (affiliate link).
Let’s jump right in and take a look at what stunning creations makers have this month!
All Mixed Up Lacquers | Ride of Your Life (Thermal)
Description: Ride of Your Life is a navy (cold) to plum (warm) to mint green (hot) tri-thermal crelly base with a mix black, white, iridescent and holo glitters mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
I do recommend a glitter smoothing topper and top coat for this polish. The glitter content does add quite a bit of texture, especially if you go beyond 2 coats.
Price: $12.50 | Cap: 150
Atomic Polish | Vhagar (Reflective Glitter)
Theme: Hose of the Dragon
Description: Vhagar is a black to red shifting multichrome jelly base loaded with red to black shifting flakes, as well as black reflective glitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: $13.00 | Cap: None
Black Dahlia Lacquer | Pisces
Description: Pisces is a deep purple jelly base with pink to red shifts, as well as red aurora flakes, red to gold ultrachrome chameleon flakes and gold to pink to copper iridescent flakes. I used 3 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: $12.75 | Cap: None
By Dany Vianna | Watermelon Sugah High (Reflective Glitter)
Description: Watermelon Sugah High is a magenta red jelly base with dark green metallic glitters as well as silver reflective glitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
The green glitters look black mixed into this jelly base.
Price: $13.00 | Cap: 200
Hearts & Promises | Cinderella
Description: Cinderella is a light blue crelly based scattered holo with pink shimmer, as well as red micro flecks and light pink flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: $13.00 | Cap: 300
LynBDesigns | Wherever I May Gnome
Description: Wherever I May Gnome is a medium blue jelly base loaded with pink to yellow to green to blue shifting shimmer and holo large particle shimmer. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: 13.00 | Cap: 100
Night Owl Lacquer | No Patience For Jam Hands
Theme: Gilmore Girls
Description: No Patience For Jam Hands is a deep berry red jelly base packed with gold holographic micro glitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
This does dry with a texture, so you may want to use a glitter smoothing topper as well as top coat.
Formula can feel a little thick due to glitter content.
Price: $12.00 | Cap: None
Pampered Polishes | The Idea Has Merit
Theme: Disney Villains
Description: The Idea Has Merit is a clear base packed with black, gold and red micro glitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
If you do more than 2 coats, you will most likely want to use a glitter smoother and top coat.
This polish is on the thicker side due to microglitter content.
Price: $13.00 | Cap: None
Paradox Polish | Studio Ghibli (Thermal)
Theme: Studio Ghibli
Description: Studio Ghibli is a purple (cold) to blue (warm) jelly based thermal with pink holo glitters, aqua to blue to violet iridescent flakes and glitters. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: $13.00 | Cap: TBD
Red Eyed Lacquer | Da Balm-er
Description: Da Balm-er is a cross between a balm and body butter. It’s creamy like a body butter but has a more emollient feel like a balm would. It’s an intensive treatment you can use anywhere (I love it on cuticles of course) but a little goes a long way. If you use too much – it will feel very oily (like a balm would) so start with a little and build up if you need more.
“Raindrops” Da Balm-er which is scented in ginger peach and fizzy soda.
I definitely pick up the peach scent and the ginger helps downplay the sweetness, but then the effervescent of the fizzy soda is also obvious. It’s a fun, light scent
Price: $9.00 | Cap: 50
Red Eyed Lacquer | Under My Umbrella
Description: Under My Umbrella is a pale, semi sheer greyed out sky blue crelly base with black flakes, pink to red to gold flakes and blue to purple to teal flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: $12.50 | Cap: 200
Rogue Lacquer | Bubbling & Brewing
Theme: Beauty and the Beast
Description: Bubbling & Brewing is a white crelly base with silver, gold, pink and purple metallic flakes mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Price: $12.50 | Cap: None
Sassy Sauce Polish | Winged Warrior (Magnetic)
Description: Winged Warrior is a purple to pink to blue to green shimmer multichrome with silver magnetic pigment. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
I only magnetized the middle 2 nails so you can see it worn both ways.
Price: $13.00 | Cap: 100
