I’m glad to present the final Holo Hookup box for the year! The December version of The Holo Hookup box looks to the New Year; turning the old into the new. Something about the end of the year makes me a bit nervous, but jumping forward to already celebrating 2019 is something I’m eagerly embracing! The theme, Transitioning Into The New Year is reflected in all four polishes being thermals! Let’s take a look!
The Holo Hookup – December 2018
The Holo Hookup is a monthly box that features three permanent makers. Sara of Cupcake Polish, Missy 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 Jackie of Fancy Gloss. We’ve got some good thermals to get to!
Cupcake Polish – Flash Forward
Sara’s Flash Forward is a scattered holographic which show as a denim when cold and a turquoise when warm. There is so much sparkle to this polish and I really love the textured look of it. It’s also almost opaque enough to be worn as a one-coater. Here, I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
I double stamped on some stars to add a bit of a celebratory feel!
Different Dimension – New Beginning
Missi created New Beginnings, a sweet linear holographic thermal that is a warm peach when cool and a bright yellow when warm. In its separate states, the shades stand out but during transition, the blend can be a bit on the subtle side. The polish applies beautifully and dries to a glossy finish. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
I really liked this art deco image and thought it would go well as a dress for a New Years shindig!
Glisten & Glow – Times Are Changing
Times Are Changing from Jill, is linear holographic thermal base loaded with a mix colored holographic UCC flakes and shimmers shifting purple to red. When cold, the base is a dusky black and goes to nude vanilla when warm. I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
My stamping here should resemble minimalist fireworks and I like the reverse of color!
Fancy Gloss – Turn Back Time
Jackie, this round’s guest maker is well known for her thermals. Turn Back Time has been quite the earworm. The holographic base when cold, is a cool mauve and it warms to an icy light blue. A brilliant turquoise shimmer runs through both states. The polish almost wears as a one-coater which is always a plus. Here, I’m wearing two coats with a glossy topcoat.
I couldn’t resist having a countdown mani to end things off! I painted these on quickly and added a few flakes for more pomp and circumstance!
What a fun, celebratory box!
