The Holo Hookup May 2016 Collaboration Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review 
Hi everyone! I have May 2016's Holo Hookup Box to share with you today. Along with polishes from Cupcake PolishDifferent Dimension, and Glisten & Glow, this month includes guest maker, Painted Polish. The theme is From The Holo Hookup, With Love...and the polishes are inspired by worldwide locales. Here is the inspiration photo:




The May 2016 Holo Hookup Box will be available during a week long pre-order from April 21st at 9 pm EST and will conclude April 28th at 9 pm EST in the Holo Hookup Shop.

The box is $40 plus shipping which will be available domestically and internationally.

Cupcake Polish From Cancun, With Love 
Two coats
Aqua colored super linear holographic with subtle iridescent flakes
This will quench your thirst.......for aqua that that is. (not agua, so don't be drinking it). Yes, that was totally necessary. This was very fluid and easy to put on, two coats for coverage and barely any clean up needed.

Different Dimension From Cairo, With Love
Two coats
Sandy nude linear holographic with added glitter and flakes
Golden but not quite gold, more of a sandy colored polish with all that good holo sparkle to give it warmth. I really loved how this looked under the sun. This has a good opaque coverage so I applied two coats.

Glisten & Glow From Tokyo, With Love 
Two coats
Red coral linear holographic with pink shimmer and holographic micro-glitter
That coral is one hot number. Inspired by the beautiful pagodas of Japan.  Two coats for opacity, though you may need one more depending on your application style.

 Painted Polish From London, With Love
Two coats
Blue gray linear holo with added holographic silver galaxy glitter
I have only tried a couple of Painted Polishes but each one was as easy to apply as this polish. The light blue does make me think of cooler London weather. Two coats for coverage and that's all you need.
