The Holo Hookup October 2016 Swatches & Review

The next edition of monthly indie collaboration box The Holo Hookup is near! The fun new theme is Clue: The Mystery! I grew up playing the board game and the movie Clue is one of my absolute favorites! I was super excited to see the polishes from all the brands this month, and to see who the guest polish maker was! Different Dimension, Cupcake Polish, and Glisten & Glow are being joined by Starrily for the month of October.

Glisten & Glow Mrs. Peacock in the Billiard Room is a blue linear holographic with added gold and green shimmers and galaxy glitters. Incredibly smooth, easy formula. Two coats. The galaxy glitters aren't super apparent in my photo, but they bring a nice glimmery quality to the polish in real life. (I think the weapon Mrs. Peacock used was the knife!)

Different Dimension Professor Plum in the Conservatory is a plummy purple linear holographic with heavy orange shimmers. The shimmer really warms this purple, it's a great cozy fall color! Another flawless formula, two coats. (Plum probably used the rope as his weapon.)

Cupcake Polish Mr. Green in the Lounge is a vivid emerald linear holographic with gold shimmers. The shimmer really sparkles, it elevates this to epic level! For real, another super great, easy formula. Two coats here as well. (I think Mr. Green is a lead pipe kinda guy.)

Starrily Miss Scarlett in the Ballroom is a rich scarlet linear holographic with a subtle hint of gold micro shimmer. This one is more jellyish in formula, a little thinner but was very opaque, two coats. The heavy pigmentation of this could cause it to stain your skin, so be careful upon removal. This seemed more like a shimmer indoors, but it gets that nice rainbow fire in bright light. My first Starrily polish and I'm pretty happy with it! (Scarlett definitely used the candlestick for her murder!)
