I wore two coats with topcoat of each polish. The formula was good on all of them; however Snowstorm was a wee bit thick feeling due to the amount of glitter packed in. I added a few drops of thinner and it was perfect.

Hella Handmade Creations: December

You guys...This month's HHCs are ALL amazing, stunnning, brilliant, and beautiful. Each brand has completely knocked it out of the park. Each time I swatched a polish, I wanted to stop right there and wear it for a day or more. You need all of these.

I usually present the polishes on my blog in alphabetical order, but decided to change it up this month and reverse it!

Under A Hula Moon We Are The Champions wax melt
begins with notes of fresh cut roses joined with sea salt, sea moss, vetiver and notes of ambered musk to create a luxurious spa-like scent inspired by Queen.
No cap

Very fresh and clean, slightly floral. It reminds me a bit of a plumeria flower's scent although it has no plumeria fragrance in it.
