May 2020 Hella Handmade Creations


| Press Sample |

I'm sharing a couple of the May contributions to Hella Handmade Creations with you today, just in case you haven't already grabbed them.  I am fighting my way back from a migraine that started at 2AM Saturday, so I'm just slightly behind.

Not familiar with HHC?  HHC is a Facebook group that was created to have custom and exclusive polishes created for their members.  The current format allows indie makers to choose a theme and do a "collection" based on that theme, one polish each month.  Buy whatever you like from lots of makers each month.
