Heather’s Hues | Heathered Hummingbird

Press sample ahead! 

 

Hihi! Happy Tuesday, my loves! I’m watching my normal shitty horror movies and enjoying the company of boyfriend and the other roommate before  Destiny 2 launches at midnight. They both love the game and will be staying up for the next 24 hours to play it, and they’re excited as all get out because an old friend is in town for the week and will be playing with them, along with an old roommate. I’m excited to have a full house, even if I’ll be working and going to bed early for a clopen shift. I’ve been trying to decide what wax to melt for tonight ALL DAY. Like, I know it’s not that important, but my brain is treating it as if it’s life or death. I. Am. A. Mess.

While I sort through my stash for something and locate my chill pills, let’s take a look at a pretty, yeah? For the Grey Nail Polish Fanatics group, we started working officially commissioning customs and I’m SO STOKED. If y’all would like to see the first one from August that Night Owl Lacquer did, you can check that out here. September’s maker is the lovely Heather from Heather’s Hues! She’s such a doll, and her polishes are phenomenal.

We had opened up submissions for inspo photos for the next custom and one of our members submitted this one, which is an Anna’s Hummingbird (that sentence is ugly as sin and is now completely bothering me).

 

After Heather created it, she’d turned to our group chat for name ideas. I shouldn’t be given any sort of responsibility with this stuff, really.

 

This was after commenting on the submission thread noting that the bird looked as grumpy as I feel on a daily basis.

We decided on Heathered Hummingbird, and I love it. I wound up asking Heather for an exact description because there’s SO much going on and I was worried I’d botch it. “It’s a grey crelly sprinkled with an iridescent purple/fuschia/red color-shift shimmer, garnet and amethyst microglitters, silver holo microglitters, and violet/pink/gold/fuschia/copper multichrome flakes.”

She was able to take the photo and bottle it up, y’all. So much so that I’ve been referring to it as liquefied angry bird. It went on in two thin coats and those flakies just friggen come to life as soon as they hit your nail. My photos show those two coats and my usual top coat.

 

Ugh, I ‘m just so in love with it! I’m happy to have found a group of folks that love all things grey as much as I do.

Heathered Hummingbird will be available tomorrow, 9/6, at noon EST for members of the Grey Nail Polish Fanatics group, so make sure you join the group!

While you’re out and about on the internets, here’s a few more links to check out!

 

So, whatcha think? I cannot WAIT to see this on everyone!

Thanks for stopping by!
