The Holo Hookup April 2016 Indie Collaboration Box Swatches & Review

Happy freakin' Friday everyone! This week has felt simultaneously short and extremely long for me. It's very odd, but at least it's over! Today I've got the shades from the April box of The Holo Hookup to show you! The Holo Hookup is a monthly pre-order box of four holographic shades from a collaboration of indie brands. Different Dimension, Cupcake Polish and Glisten & Glow are the main indies who put together the box each month, and they always have a great theme and a guest brand join in. This month the theme is Autism Awareness and the guest brand is Bliss Polish. The Holo Hookup is donating $4 from every April box sold to the National Autism Association, making this month extra great!

Cupcake Polish Light Of My Life is a dark pink linear holographic with blue shimmer. This was almost a one-coater because it's a little thick, but the application was a breeze. I used two coats here.

Different Dimension I ♡ Someone With Autism is a black linear holographic with added blue shimmer and flakies and navy blue holographic microglitters. This one is completely opaque in one coat! I did two here because I always do. Takes a bit longer to dry down, so it might get gummy if you apply a second coat over the first too fast though. But you really can get away with just one if you want!

Glisten & Glow Accept, Understand, Love is a light springy grass green linear holographic with blue shimmer, and blue and silver galaxy holographic microglitters. Thinner consistency, but I noticed it was a little draggy upon application for me. Two coats for full opacity. I wasn't super in love with this at first glance, but when I saw it on my nails I really fell in love with it.

Bliss Polish Different Not Less is a slightly dusty, but somehow vibrant, bold blue linear holographic with added blue micro flakes. This is my first ever Bliss Polish and I am pretty pleased with it. It was on the thinner side but easy to apply with no pooling. Opaque in two coats.

This box will be up for pre-sale on The Holo Hookup website starting on Monday, March 21st at 9pm EST through Monday, March 28th at 9pm EST. The box is $40 plus shipping, and is available worldwide. They usually ship by the 12th of the following month, so this box will start shipping on 4/12/16. Let me know what you think of the April box! I'm so on board with the theme and love that part of the proceeds will be going to a great cause. Are you thinking about getting this box?
