Hello lovely readers! Today I have two of the contributions for February’s HHC releases from Blush Lacquers and Girly Bits! These are both in some of my favorite shades and make me really wish for spring to come around. The weather has been crazy here in the South, seriously in one week we have all four seasons! This girl misses the sun!
Blush Lacquers– An Ounce of Pink
- Official description: A forest green linear holo base with small pink holographic glitters and larger iridescent shifting glitters of orange, yellow, green and blue. Inspired by the Pink Panther episode namesake.
- Price: $11.50
- Cap: None
Swatches show three coats with glossy topcoat. This feels very similar to the others in the Pink Panther series regarding formula- it’s light, has a touch of a jelly feel to it but builds quickly. I’d say 2-3 coats max for full opacity. The base color is a touch darker than what my swatches show, it’s what I would consider a true forest green with the strong linear holo giving it the lighter appearance in photos. The glitters shift in all sorts of warm tones and sparkle in just about any lighting. No texture after topcoat.
Girly Bits– A Loss of Innocence
- Official description: a pale minty green with colour shifting shimmer, white flakes and a sprinkling darker flecks. Inspired by Hedwig and her extreme loyalty to Harry, and especially her heartbreaking death.
- Price: $13.00
- Cap: 95 Bottles
Swatches show two coats with topcoat. Formula has a medium feel and applies very crelly like and dense. This is a flattering pale mint green that has an almost whited/pastel feel. The shimmers and flakes give a densely scattered sparkle effect and overall this one dries down almost matte so I’d recommend a glossy topcoat to really get the shimmers and sparkles going. No texture after topcoat.
The HHC February pre-order starts at midnight (12:01am) Eastern on Feb 14th and goes to midnight (11:59pm) Hawaiian time on Feb 21st. Be sure to check out my swatch video to see these pretties in action!
Thanks so much for reading! ❤
