The Holo Hookup August 2016 Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hi everyone! For today I have the Holo Hookup Box for August. Along with polishes from Cupcake Polish, Different Dimension, and Glisten & Glow, the guest maker for this month is Nvr Enuff Polish. Theme is A Day in a Garden, with the polish drawing inspiration from the lush gardens, here is the inspiration photo I was provided:


The August 2016 Holo Hookup Box will be available during a week long pre-order window from July 21st at 9 pm EST until July 28th at 9 pm EST only in the Holo Hookup shop

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

Cupcake Polish Blue Orchid
Two coats
Cyan blue linear holographic with strong blue and pink shimmer
I used to be a holo purist type of holo lover but the more I see these shimmer holos (like this one), the most I embrace them. This pretty blue is a bit thinner in formula than I expected but it was still opaque in two coats.

Different Dimension Montego Red
Two coats
Darkened scarlet red linear holographic with added shimmer and purple micro-glitter
Absolutely gorgeous! The color is so very bright and the added purple glitter pop in that base. Formula was wonderful, two coats for coverage.

 Glisten & Glow Fern Gully 
Two coats
Forest Green linear holographic with blue and gold shimmer 
This is a perfect garden green color and I like the added blue and gold shimmer. It was a somewhat watery formula so I dabbed off some of the polish from my brush before I applied. With that in mind I though I would need three coats but nope, two was all I needed.

Nvr Enuff Odessa Black
Two coats
Blackened reddish purple linear holographic with red shimmer and midnight flakes
I was excited to see that Nvr Enuff Polish would be the guest brand this month, as I have been following their brand for some time now. Those ladies make some serioulsy awesome holos but I think I prefer their darker shades more and this one is outstanding. It's dark and vampy and red toned, my favorite kind of dark purple basically. If you aren't used to the larger paddle brush that Nvr Enuff uses, I recommend light thin coats when you apply, as it's on the thick side.
