The Holo Hookup July 2016 Box Swatches & Review

Hi there! Today I have a new edition of The Holo Hookup to show you! July's box is themed for the Great Barrier Reef, so summery. :) In addition to permanent indie brand contributors Cupcake Polish, Different Dimension, and Glisten & Glow, we have Australian indie brand Emily de Molly joining in as the guest this month.

Cupcake Polish Queen Anthias is a grape bubblegum purple linear holographic with subtle pink shimmers and a slightly metallic finish. I realize that most holographics are "metallic-y" in nature, but this one seemed just a tad more so. This was a bit goopy at first for me, but upon a good shaking, it applied well. This is two coats.

Different Dimension P Sherman 42 Wallaby Way Sydney is a cobalt blue linear holographic with gold galaxy glitters. This went on really great, and I got full coverage on one coat. Two coats deepens the color though, as seen here. The glitters are really plentiful, but sink in the bottle. I got a good amount out because I left my bottle upside down for about an hour before I put it on. I love this!

Glisten & Glow Great Barrier Reef Plate Corals is a burnt orange linear holographic jelly with added gold shimmers. This was on the thinner side due to the jelly formula, but applied nice and evenly. This is three coats but you may get away with two. I wasn't sure if I would like this on the nail, but I am in love with how the gold makes the base color so fiery!

Emily de Molly Warm Seas Rising is a light teal with bronze to gold multichrome flakies. This applied fabulously, very smooth and opaque in two coats. I love the flakies in this, reminds me of fish swimming in the ocean, which is probably the point haha. ;)

This box goes up for pre-sale on June 21st at 9pm EST through June 28th at 9pm EST on The Holo Hookup website. It sells for $40 plus shipping, available domestically and internationally. The ship date would normally be July 12, but they are moving the ship date to July 15 to accommodate the addition of the international guest. What do you think of these gorgeous sea inspired shades?
