How is everyone holding up with the social distancing and stay at home orders?? The boredom is definitely starting to set in for me. Being an introvert and homebody, I thought I was prepared for this, but nothing could prepare me for this. But since I have so much free time on my hands now, I have been working on getting caught up on some craft projects done and starting to learn some new crafts.

So my question for you all is what are you doing to keep yourself occupied while stuck at home?? Inquiring minds want to know!

While we think about that, let’s take a look at April Hella Handmade Creations!

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 April with a free full size (.15ml) bottle of Tubular Top Coat for all orders over $75.

20200322005026_IMG_7324_1585544274810-01

Tubular was named because of its meaning way. This top coat can be used to seal polish with a no chip, ultra gloss mirror like shine. Tubular is not a quick dry top coat.

No code needed. Just add your April polishes and the top coat will automatically be added to your order. It’s that simple!

I used Tubular with all of my swatches this month. Similar to the Stay Stoked GWP top coat from March, this is a thinner top coat. I do my swatching and swatch videos in my bedroom and my camera setup to take my swatch pictures is in the den across the house. I top coated each mani and walked across the house to take pictures. By the time I got to my camera, my nails were dry enough that I could very lightly touch them without lifting the polish. If I had used any force, I would have smeared or pulled up the polish. It took about 30 minutes or so for my nails to dry enough that I could function normally without too much fear of messing up my mani. Because this is thinner top coat, it may take two coats for very textured polishes.
