The Holo Hookup: February 2016, The Elements

Today I'm sharing The Holo Hookup's February box with you all! This month's theme is "The Elements," inspired by the signs of the Zodiac, with colors from Glisten & Glow, Cupcake Polish, Different Dimension, and this month's guest contributor, Takko Lacquer.

Glisten & Glow Fire

Glisten & Glow "Fire" (Aries, Leo, Sagittarius) is an ultra linear holographic coral-red filled with holographic red micro-glitter. This color is jaw-dropping! It's completely unique and soo rich and vivid that it's almost neon-looking in certain lighting. Fire has a slightly metallic finish and a strong violet arc that adds gorgeous dimension to the pink-toned red base. The formula was superb and looked smooth, even, and opaque in just two coats. Shown here is three coats plus top coat.

Cupcake Polish Air

Cupcake Polish "Air" (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini) is a cornflower-blue super holographic shimmer filled with iridescent fuchsia and blue-violet color-shifting glass flecks. The iridescent glass flecks add a beautiful flash of sparkles t this perfect periwinkle! This had a great formula that went on smooth and easy. It was somewhat patchy at first, but it built up nicely in about 2-3 coats. Just don't over-brush or you may get some bald spots. Shown with three coats with top coat.

Different Dimension Earth

Different Dimension "Earth" (Taurus, Virgo, Capricorn) is an ultra linear holographic bronze full of green, red, and gold holo micro-glitter and metallic multi-chrome flecks. Pretty flippin' amazing, right?! This color has so much cool stuff going on! The formula was flawless, with great coverage and an easy application, and it looked opaque in just two coats. Pictured with three coats and top coat.

Takko Lacquer Water

Takko Lacquer "Water" (Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces) is an aqua jelly with a scattered holographic effect and strong golden shimmer. I love the delicate, serene look this color has; it's so lovely! The formula is somewhat sheer, but is mostly opaque in three coats with some slight visible nail line. It had very smooth, even, and easy application. Shown with three coats and top coat.

This truly might be my favorite box from The Holo Hookup so far! I looove the unique and varied colors, and they're all just incredibly gorgeous and special. The February "The Elements" themed box is available for pre-order now through January 28th at 9pm EST, and retails for $40. What do you think of these interpretations of the astrological elements? And hey, what's your sign?
