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 May with a free full size (.15ml) bottle of The Big Shaka Matte Top Coat for all orders over $75.
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 May polishes, totaling $75, and the top coat will automatically be added to your order. It’s that simple!
I used Big Shaka with all of my swatches this month. All of the matte pictures feature one coat of Big Shaka on top of one coat of a glossy quick dry top coat. I typically will always use a glossy top coat under a matte top coat since most matte top coats are not able to withstand normal wear and tear on their own. Though this is not meant to be a quick dry top coat, I was very happy with how quickly Big Shaka dried. By the time I got to my last finger, my first finger was already matte and smooth. By the time I walked to my picture room, I was able to softly touch my nails with very little smudging!
Sale will begin on May 14th at 12:01am Eastern time.
Sale will end on May 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!
