The Holo Hookup October 2017

Press Sample*

Another new The Holo Hookup box is coming soon! :) October's box themed "Ballroom Dance" comes up with four awesome holographic shades by the main brands of the box DIFFERENT dimension, Cupcake Polish and Glisten & Glow. The fourth shade is by this month's guest maker Blush Lacquers which is very exciting for me.. another new brand in my stash! :D

The box will be available as usual for pre-order only from Thursday, September 21st at 9pm EST to Thursday, September 28th at 9pm for exactly one week at theholohookup.bigcartel.com for 40$ excl. shipping.




Let's start with the swatches!


Paso Doble by Cupcake Polish, a red linear holographic with heavy silver shimmer and shiny silver flakies. I'm wearing two thin coats with a glossy top coat, but you could probably get along with one generous coat as well.




Samba by DIFFERENT dimension, a plum linear holographic with silver flakies and holographic microglitters. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.




Rumba by Glisten & Glow, a medium turquoise linear holographic with tiny silver holographic microglitters and subtle flashes of blue shimmers. I'm wearing one generous coat with a glossy top coat.




Cha-Cha-Cha! by Blush Lacquers, a copper toned orange holographic with coppery-pink shimmers (which are only visible in the shade). I'm wearing two thin coats with a glossy top coat, but you could get along on this one as well with one generous coat :)




I also did a smooshy mani with all four shades as a base for this stamping. For the stamping I used Vibin' by Twinkled T (purchased via twinkledt.com) and the Spirits of Hamsa (A018) plate by Whats Up Nails (*Press-Sample, available at store.whatsupnails.com). Topped with a glossy top coat of course ;)





I love this box! The shades are so vibrant and the application was perfect, so I can't tell you anything but to get it if you like the colors :D

Do you like them?

The Someday We'll All Be Memories Too Collection by DIFFERENT dimension

Press Sample*

DIFFERENT dimension's early fall collection called Someday We'll All Be Memories Too consists of six shades, three shimmer polishes and three holographic polishes.

It will be released on September 1st at 9 am EST on differentdimensionpolish.bigcartel.com and the shades will retail for $12 each.

Let's start with the swatches and Nailarts! :D
(I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat on each swatch.)

Reflection, a bright berry polish with color shifting shimmer.






For this stamping I used the ÜberChic 1-02 stamping plate (purchased via Hypnotic Polish), Subtweet and Saucey by Twinkled T (purchased via Twinkled T).





Dream Come True, a darkened teal polish with color shifting shimmer.






For this stamping I used the Make Your Mark 01 stamping plate by Lina Nail Art Supplies (purchased via Hypnotic Polish) and So Extra by Twinkled T (purchased via Twinkled T).





Collect Beautiful Moments, a violet polish with color shifting shimmer.






For this stamping I used the Gothic 05 stamping plate by MoYou London (purchased via MoYou London) and Vibin' by Twinkled T (purchased via Twinkled T).





Forever Is Composed Of Nows, a darkened wine linear holographic.






For this stamping I used the Minimal 04 stamping plate and Ladygold Pink by MoYou London (purchased both via MoYou London).





Moment In Time, a darkened eggplant linear holographic.






For this stamping I used the Make Your Mark 02 stamping plate by Lina Nail Art Supplies (purchased via Hypnotic Polish) and Goals by Twinkled T (purchased via Twinkled T).





Timeless Treasures, a darkened olive green linear holographic.






For the stamping I used the Make Your Mark 02 stamping plate by Lina Nail Art Supplies and Stamped In Stone by Painted Polish (purchased both via Hypnotic Polish).





The application of all these polishes is awesome! I guess some of them would also be opaque in one thicker coat, but I prefer two thin coats :)
Even if I'm usually not that much into shimmer polishes, Collect Beautiful Moments totally blew my mind, it's so beautiful! The other shimmery shades are gorgeous as well, and the holographic shades are PERFECTION! There's nothing better for me than dark holos :D
