The Holo Hookup February 2016 Indie Collaboration Box Swatches & Review

Hi cookies! Today I have the upcoming box for The Holo Hookup to show you! This is a monthly collaboration box of holographic polishes between indie brands Different Dimension, Cupcake Polish, and Glisten & Glow with a surprise guest brand. This month the theme for the quartet is Elements and the guest brand is Takko Lacquer! Details on the pre-sale for this box will be down below, but first let's look at the colors!

First is Different Dimension Earth, a rich brown linear holographic with added multichrome flakies, as well as blue and green holo microglitters. This is incredibly beautiful, like pictures cannot do it justice, it's just like sunshine on harvest fields or something. And the application? Literally applied like butter! This is two coats. Earth signs are Taurus, Virgo, and Capricorn.

Cupcake Polish Air is a periwinkle linear holographic with strong pink shimmers that make it kind of a shapeshifter between soft blue and a purple. Another excellent formula, though a little on the thick side. Covered in just two coats. Air signs are Libra, Aquarius and Gemini. I'm an Air sign (Gemini!) so I totally love this shade the most!

Fire by Glisten & Glow is a glowy red linear holographic with orange undertones with slight pink shift with scattered silver and red holo microglitters. The formula on this was thinner than the others, but very easy to apply. This is two coats. A little lighter in person, it was a difficult one to capture accurately. Fire signs are Aries, Leo and Sagittarius.

And last we have Takko Lacquer Water, a light aqua linear holographic with intense gold shimmer. I found this formula to also be really effortless to apply, with a slightly thicker feel than the others due to the shimmer. The first coat looks a little light, but only one more is needed for full opacity. I recommend top coat with all Takkos due to the vegan pigments and vitamin e that they use, which can make the lacquers dry more matte. Water signs are Pisces, Cancer and Scorpio.

I love the theme of the box, I've always been interested in Astrology and elemental signs! This box will be up for pre-sale on The Holo Hookup website from January 21st at 9pm EST through January 28th at 9pm EST. The box costs $40 plus shipping. Let me know what you think about this month's colors & theme! And check out The Holo Hookup on Facebook and Instagram. See ya again soon!
