PRESS SAMPLE
Hello Sweeties! Tonight I have a blog post packed with photos of twelve gorgeous polishes from twelve great makers. I was ecstatic last month when I was asked to be one of the bloggers for Hella Handmade Creations. I loved the new direction they were taking HHC and was very excited to be a part of it. So this is the first Month I was added to the HHC blogger list and I was super grateful to have been sent twelve out of the seventeen polishes to review! Read on for more info!
