There is so much going on in the indie world these days in terms of nail groups and group customs.  Back last winter, I was added to a FB group called Hella Holo Customs by a nail friend.  Little did I know then the KIND of polishes that were going to come from this group.  Each month, two brands are chosen to be featured.  Members suggest colours via an inspiration photo, the members vote, and the top ones are passed on to the makers.  They then design a polish based on the photo and another exclusive or two they decide on on their own.  Members suggest names and the brands choose the ones they want.  It’s so much fun to be a part of it.

The first two customs I grabbed from that group are Cupcake Polish Happy 2nd Cakeversary and Hella Holo Teal I Die.  And guys, I swear I heard angels sing when I put these on my nails!

Hella Holo Teal I Die

Hella Holo Teal I Die is a medium teal super holo.  In terms of colour, it’s more unique than most of my teals.  It’s the perfect colour of teal – not too blue and not too green.

The formula was really great.  I had heard good things about Cupcake Polish but it was even better than I expected.  It went on smooth and I only needed two coats for opacity.

You know how there are just some polishes out there that would be worth selling your soul to own?  Forsaking all others and agreeing to wear just this polish for all eternity? Well, take a look at Happy 2nd Cakeversary! *cue harps*

Happy 2nd Cakeversary 2

This polish is so gorgeous I’m at a loss to explain it.  It’s pink.  Maybe a touch purple.  Oh look! I think I see a hint of blue.  All I know for certain is that there was a puddle of drool on my workstation while polishing.  When I looked back at my notes for this polish, I had literally written (in all capital letters) “SWEET JESUS!!!” on the margin of the page.  It’s that good.  The pictures don’t come close to doing it justice.

The linear holo of this polish is blinding.  Now, I’m the first to admit that I prefer other finishes over a straight holo polish, but when I find one of those WOWZER holo polishes, I tend to really love them.
