The Holo Hookup April 2016 Collaboration Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hello! I have the latest Holo Hookup Box to share today. If you need a refresher, the Holo Hookup Box is a monthly all holographic box with exclusives from Cupcake PolishDifferent Dimension, and Glisten & Glow, plus a guest maker. For this April 2016 box, the theme is Autism Awareness and Bliss Polish is the guest maker. Here is more info provided by the makers:

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 and it greatly varies from person to person (no two people with autism are alike). The Holo Hookup is donating $4 from every box to the National Autism Association

So not only will you be getting some pretty holo polishes but you will be supporting a good cause. Win all around! Here are the purchasing details I like to include with each post: 
  • This will be a pre-order box, meaning that you can place your order during the week that is available in the Holo Hookup shop, for this particular box, you can pre-order beginning March 21st at 9 PM EST and the pre-order will end on March 28th at 9 PM EST. Shipping will begin early January. 
  • The cost of each box is $40, plus shipping and will include four exclusive all holographic polishes. 
  • Shipping will be available domestically and internationally. 
  • For other reviews/swatches and more information about the box itself, follow The Holo Hookup on Instagram and Facebook.
Cupcake Polish Light Of My Life
Two coats
Dark pink linear holographic with blue shimmer
Intensely pink with an almost foil finish. I am loving the pinks that are released within these montly boxes and this one may be my favorite so far. This was thicker in formula compared to the other three but I did not find it problematic to apply.

Different Dimension  I <3 Someone With Autism 
Two coats
Black linear holographic with blue shimmers and flakes plus navy blue holographic micro-glitter
Gorgeous with it's dark hue. I love the bits of blue sparkle from the micro-glitter. Smooth application with two coats.

Glisten & Glow Accept, Understand, Love
Two coats
Light grass green linear holographic with blue shimmer plus blue and silver holographic micro-glitter
Really nice color contrast with the colors for this box, from the pink and black to this green. Application is a breeze, you may need to apply two to three coats depending on how thinly you apply, I did two.

Bliss Polish Different, Not Less
Two coats
Blue linear holographic with blue micro-flakes
A bold blue to be sure, which just so happens to be my favorite kind of blue. I don't own many Bliss Polishes and I don't know why that is, this was a rich color and it applied so well.
