Every year, I fully vow to be ahead of the game with everything (shopping, gift wrapping, etc.)… and every year, I inevitably end up finishing all of my shopping and staying up to ridiculous hours of the night (morning) to wrap gifts on Christmas Eve because…. procrastination. 🤷🏾‍♀️

I made the vow again this year, but if the timing of this blog post is any indication, this will be another year of working down to the wire! I have 14 of the December HHC polishes to share with you.

Free Stuff, What??

The ladies of HHC are continuing with their free gift with purchase promotion this month. All orders over $75 will receive a bottle of Under A Hula Moon’s Glassy Top Coat. If you couldn’t tell by the name, Glassy will add a shiny, high gloss finish to your mani.

20191129075025_IMG_7515_1576131390925-0120191124071924_IMG_7174_1576131553400-01

I used Glassy with my swatches this month and I can definitely confirm the high shine finish. Glassy was dry to the touch for me in about 5-7 minutes. Glassy is on the thinner side, so I would anticipate that it will need a bit longer to be fully dry. On a side note, because Glassy is thinner, I think that it will do really well as a base to attach reverse stamping decals. I’m going to try thing out and let you all know!

Sales Information

Sale will begin on December 14th at 12:01am Eastern time.
Sale will end on December 21st 11:59pm Hawaiian time.

Polishes can be purchased at www.shophhc.com.

This is a preorder sale and the turn around time is 3-4 weeks!

All swatches done using Vapid Lacquer – Commitment Issues Base Coat and Under A Hula Moon Glassy Top Coat (unless otherwise noted). Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite.

A quick note about swatch videos this month, the camera lens that I use for my swatch videos sadly did not make it to see another Christmas. I am in the process of getting a new lens and I hope to be back with swatch videos in January! In the meantime, I promise to share all the pictures in order to fully fulfill my role as a polish pusher.
