Hella Handmade Creations is back this month and I can’t even tell you how I’m feeling right now. I’ve had favorite polishes in past months, but this month… unwrapping each of these polishes was like Christmas morning all over again. Plus (spolier alert), there is a polish named after me. Just kidding 🤣, but it is the first polish that I have seen that shares my name – so it automatically took my top favorite spot this month! But, I do have lots of favorite spots this months and I hope that you all do to because this month is sure to have polishes that will please everyone.

Free Stuff, What??
Dawn and Aubrey of Hella Handmade Creations and Under a Hula Moon are continuing with their free gift with purchase promotion in March with a free full size (.15ml) bottle of Stay Stoked Top Coat for all orders over $75.
This 5-free top coat was named because of it meaning to stay enthusiastic, exhilarated or excited. Free of camphor, toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), and formaldehyde resins. Stay Stoked is used to seal in your favorite color and create a gorgeous glossy finish.
No code needed. Just add your March polishes and the base coat will automatically be added to your order. It’s that simple!
I used Stay Stoked with all of my swatches this month. This is a thinner top coat, which I’ve found takes a bit longer to fully dry, so it took about 15 minutes. It got pretty good surface dryness after about 5-6 minutes, so as long as you’re not doing anything too wild, you will be good to go! Stay Stoked is definitely a super shiny finish that I especially loved over the linear holo polishes this month. For really textured polishes, I would recommend using two coats for a smooth finish.
Sale will begin on March 14th at 12:01am Eastern time.
Sale will end on March 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!
I have 26 polishes to share with you all this month. All swatches done using Under A Hula Moon Locked In Base Coat and Stay Stoked Top Coat. Pictures taken in direct lighting with a natural daylight Ottlite (unless otherwise noted).
