The Holo Hookup January 2016 Indie Collaboration Box Swatches & Review

Hi everyone! Today I have the pleasure of showing you a new indie polish collaboration box called The Holo Hookup. Indie brands Cupcake Polish, DIFFERENT dimension and Glisten & Glow will be each collaborating, along with a surprise guest brand, to each create an exclusive polish for the monthly box. If you hadn't guessed from the name, all of the polishes will be holographic! So if you're a holo lover, you will definitely be interested! This box is available via pre-order only so you will have to order in advance each month.

The theme for the January box is "Love Is In The Little Things" and the guest brand is Polished By KPT. "Love is in the little things like your first date night, while enjoying a little bit of bubbly, followed by walks in nature and then you have your first kiss..."

First we have Cupcake Polish First Kiss, a very light pink super linear holographic. This has an incredible smooth formula. It's almost a one coater, but I did two here. Two coats make it slightly more intense, which is crazy considering how super vivid this holo is! This is definitely a brand to watch for, I'm very impressed with what I've seen from them!

Next we have Glisten & Glow Walks In Nature, a deep green linear holographic polish with blue undertones, with added purple, blue, and gold micro flakies. This has a very smooth, slightly jelly-ish type of formula. I used three coats for full coverage, but you may only need two. I love that this isn't your typical green, it's so pretty!

Here is DIFFERENT dimension A Little Bit Of Bubbly, a gold holographic polish loaded with shimmer and metallic microglitter. This blew my mind in the sunlight, it looks like there is a glaze of silver in there as well as that sunshiney gold but it could be the holo playing tricks on my eyes. Easy to apply with great coverage. I used two coats here. Dries a touch bumpier than others due to the glitter, but using a thicker top coat I didn't notice a texture on the finish.

Special guest for this box is Polished by KPT Date Night, a dark charcoal holographic polish filled with a multitude of purple color shifting micro shimmers. Colors in the shimmer shift through blue, violet, purple, olive, and gold. This polish went on effortlessly, it was almost a one coater but I used two here. This is my first polish from this brand and I'm really liking it!

The collection will be available to purchase at The pre-order dates for this box are Monday, December 21st at 9pm EST through Monday, December 28 at 9pm EST. The previous box was $40 so I'm guessing that's the normal price, which is pretty good considering these brands price most of their individual polishes higher than the $10 mark. Remember that these are exclusive to the box, so if you want these shades be sure to pre-order! They do ship internationally. You can also check out their Facebook and Instagram for more swatches!

Tell me what you think of these amazing holographics! I really love them all, I can't pick a favorite! Would you be interested in picking up a collab box like this? I love the idea!
