The Holo Hookup: July 2016, Down Under in the Great Barrier Reef

Hey friends! I'm back with another set of rich & radiant polishes for "The Holo Hookup" monthly subscription box! July's theme is "Down Under in the Great Barrier Reef," and has colors from Glisten & Glow, Cupcake Polish, Different Dimension, and this month's guest contributor, Emily de Molly.

The Great Barrier Reef: Inspiration photos for July's The Holo Hookup Box

Glisten & Glow Great Barrier Reef Plate Corals

Glisten & Glow "Great Barrier Reef Plate Corals" is a rich burnt orange ultra-linear holographic packed with gold shimmers. I love how beautifully vibrant the color is, and it's very summery/juicy looking. The formula was excellent; it was a little thin, but built up well in about three coats. Here I have on three coats with top coat.

Cupcake Polish Queen Anthias

Cupcake Polish "Queen Anthias" is a shimmery amethyst-purple linear holographic with a slightly metallic finish. This is an incredible, gorgeous purple! And another perfectly bright and tropical shade. This one had a fantastic formula. It was slightly thick, but went on smooth and evenly, and looked opaque in about two coats. Pictured here is three coats plus top coat.

Different Dimension P Sherman Wallaby Way Sydney

Different Dimension "P Sherman 42 Wallaby Way Sydney" is a vibrant cobalt-blue linear holographic full of tiny gold holo glitters. I found this color to be super flattering, and doesn't it look just like Dory?! The formula was superb, and applied evenly and with full coverage in two coats. Shown here with three coats and top coat.

Emily de Molly Warm Seas Rising

Emily de Molly "Warm Seas Rising" is a shimmering teal-green ultra linear holographic full of bronze/gold multichrome flecks. This teal color looks so amazing, like the bright, tropical waters surrounding the Great Barrier Reef. It had a flawless formula that went on very smooth and evenly, and looked opaque in two coats. Here I'm wearing three coats with top coat.

The pre-order for July's "Down Under in the Great Barrier Reef" themed box will be open from June 21st at 9pm EDT until June 28th at 9pm EDT, and will be available from The Holo Hookup's shop online for $40 USD.
