The Holo Hookup: April 2016, Autism Awareness

Good morning everyone! Today I'm sharing The Holo Hookup's Autism Awareness-themed box for April. Read on for more info on how you can enjoy these brilliant colors while supporting a wonderful cause!

Cupcake Polish Light of My Life

Cupcake Polish "Light of My Life"  is a magenta-pink jelly with iridescent blue shimmer and a soft linear holo effect. This color has a strong violet arc that really gives it really beautiful depth! And it has a lovely, subtle foil-like finish. The formula was superb and had a smooth, even application that looked opaque in just two coats. Pictured here is three coats and top coat.

Glisten & Glow Accept, Understand, Love

Glisten & Glow "Accept, Understand, Love" is an apple/grass-green linear holographic sprinkled with blue and silver holo micro-glitter and blue shimmer. This color is so gorgeous and vibrant, and really changes depending on the lighting. The formula was flawless and went on effortlessly, with full coverage in only two coats. Shown here with three coats plus top coat.

Different Dimension I  Someone with Autism

Different Dimension "I  Someone with Autism" is a black linear holographic filled with blue-violet sparkle and flakies and navy-blue holo micro-glitters. Personally, I love that this is really a true black holo! The formula was good, a little thick at first, but looked opaque and mostly even in about 1-2 coats. It dries with a somewhat gritty texture, and I feel I should have used an extra coat of top coat. Here I have on three coats with top coat.

Bliss Polish Different, Not Less

Bliss Polish "Different, Not Less" is a deep cornflower-blue holographic filled with shimmering blue flecks. Bliss Polish is the guest contributor for this month's box. This was actually my first experience with this brand, and I was extremely impressed with this breathtaking color and formula! The application was perfectly smooth and even, and it looked opaque in two coats. Pictured here is two coats plus top coat.

The month of April is Autism Awareness month and is the theme of this month's The Holo Hookup box. For each box purchased, The Holo Hookup will be donating $4 to the National Autism Association. So not only will you get to enjoy these truly beautiful colors, you'll help support a great organization that provides education and services to families affected by autism. Since I received my box as a press sample, I've donated to the National Autism Association directly.

· Autism impacts the normal development of the brain in the areas of social interaction, communication skills, and cognitive function. Individuals with autism typically have difficulties in verbal and non-verbal communication, social interactions, and leisure or play activities
· Autism now affects 1 in 68 children
· Autism greatly varies from person to person-- no two people with autism are alike
