You can buy as many polishes as you want during the pre-sale. Each brand participating in HHC has picked their own theme to create specially inspired polishes.
“Yet Another Cremated Turkey” from My Indie Polish was inspired by Shameless and is an orchid-leaning mauve crelly with color changing flakies, copper holographic glitters, and a touch of red shimmer. This shade will be $12.50 with a cap of 75 bottles. I used two coats of polish for my swatch photos.
Chirality was inspired by Doctor Who to create “Pandorica”, a teal to blue to violet shifting holographic base color with a green to gold to teal to blue intense shimmer. Pandorica will be $11.00 with no cap. This shade has a sheer formula, but was opaque in two coats of polish for me.
Lollipop Posse created “Top Witch in New York”, inspired by The Magicians. Top Witch in New York is an oxblood crelly base packed with pink-red shifting shimmer, red and gold holographic flakes, and scattered holographic pigment. This shade will be $13.00 with no cap. I used two coats of polish for my swatches and found that this shade has a phenomenal formula and the flakies spread very easily across the nail.
Ms Sparkle created “The Magic Wand”, inspired by everyone’s favorite vintage toy, the plastic wand filled with glitter! The Magic Wand is described as a blue crelly with yellow microflakies, gold shimmer, aurora pigment, chrome flakies, and holographic sparkles. This shade will retail for $11.00 and has no cap. I used two coats of polish for these swatch photos.
Rogue Lacquer created “Dressed Like a Bat, I Dig It”, inspired by Batman from The Justice League. This polish is described as a black holographic with micro holographic gold glitter and gold shimmer flecks. Dressed Like a Bat, I Dig It will retail for $10.50 and has a cap of 100 bottles. This shade had an incredibly creamy formula and was opaque for me in three coats of polish. Black holographics can be tricky to create, and I was really impressed by this one! The holographic shimmer is beautiful and I also notice a blue shimmer in person.
Wildflower Lacquer was inspired by The Golden Girls to create “Sweetheart, Pray for Brains”, a purple polish with holographic flakes, neon purple flakies, scattered silver flakies, purple sparks, and a subtle pink shimmer. This shade will retail for $12.00 and has a cap of 80 bottles. This shade was opaque in two coats of polish for me.
Sayuri created “Revive the Eternal Light”, inspired by Castle in the Sky from Studio Ghibli. This polish will be $13.00 with a cap of 65 and is described as an earthy brown holographic polish with a strong olive green metallic overlay. This shade is super unique and looks incredible on the nail; it was opaque for me in 2-3 coats of polish.
DRK Nails created “Love is in the Air”, inspired by Despicable Me. Love is in the Air is described as a periwinkle holographic with a subtle foil finish, a mix of iridescent and foil multichrome flakies, and a red/green shimmer. This polish will be $12.50 and does not have a cap. This shade was opaque in two coats of polish. Scroll to the end to see a shot of this shade outdoors in direct sunlight to show off he beautiful holographic shimmer.
JReine was inspired by New Orleans to create “Party Gras”, a vivid pink-purple shade loaded with original unicorn pee pigment and linear holographic. This shade will be available for $15.00 with no cap. I found this shade to be opaque in three coats of polish.
