Well, hello there! It’s only a little past noon over here in the Sunshine State, but I’m already longing for a nap. Instead of giving in to my comfy bed, I decided to show you what’s coming up with The Holo Hookup for August. August’s theme centers on The Great Outdoors, and while I don’t consider myself the outdoorsy type, thankfully, these polishes don’t demand any hiking test as qualification. As usual, we have four stunners showing off some holographic goodness. Let’s take a look at the Holo Hookup August – Great Outdoors Box!
Great Outdoors – Holo Hookup
The Holo Hookup is a monthly box that features three permanent makers. Sara of Cupcake Polish, Missi of Different Dimensions and Jill of Glisten & Glow invite another indie maker to create a polish to go along with a chosen theme. This month’s guest maker is Natalie of Noodles Nail Polish!
Cupcake Polish – Force of Nature
I am a self-proclaimed green polish lover and Sara’s Force of Nature ticks all the boxes for me. Force of Nature has an emerald green linear holographic base jam packed with a mix of multichrome metallic flakes in a rainbow of colors. While the polish is densely packed with flakes, it has a medium consistency and easy application. It dries to a fairly smooth finish with everything staying put. The color payoff in here is grand! I’m completely in love! I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Different Dimension – Chasing Waterfalls
Here we have Chasing Waterfalls! Tell me you’re singing that song too! Missi created this cool periwinkle blue linear brimming with Ultra Chrome Chameleon flakes. Also in there are iridescent flakes that shift orange to pink to gold and iridescent color shifting glitters. I enjoy how the colors play off each other in here. Despite the polish being packed with elements, it’s pretty smooth in its application, and dries to a smooth touch. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Glisten & Glow – Gone Glamping
Gone Glamping is such a pretty one! The base here is an orchid linear holographic with a mix of flakes that shift purple to green to gold and pink to orange to purple. The flakes aren’t heavy in the polish but they add enough contrast to an already beautiful pink. As with the others, Gone Glamping has a pleasant consistency with flakes playing well and drying down smoothly. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Noodles Nail Polish – Take A Hike
Wrapping things up is guest maker, Natalie’s Take A Hike. While I won’t be hiking anytime soon, I will be keeping this polish nearby to wear often, because, heart eyes! The base here is a dusty navy blue holographic crelly with a smattering of bronze micro flakes, a mix of glitters in gold, copper and caramel. Also spotted are aqua metallic glitters and copper holographic glitters. Tying this beauty up is a dusting of copper shimmer. The combo of muted navy and copper works splendidly here. Again, the polish application is flawless! I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
Be ready to venture out into the Great Outdoors with this fun palette!
