The Holo Hookup May 2017 Box: Swatches and Review

Provided for Review
Hey y'all! For today, I have May's Holo Hookup Box to share. Along with polishes from Cupcake Polish, Different Dimension, and Glisten & Glow, this month's guest maker is Cadillacquer. The theme is 'Off To Broadway' with the inspiration pic below:


The May 2017 Holo Hookup Box will be available April 21st at 9 pm EST until April 28th at 9 pm EST only in the Holo Hookup shop

Important! ---> May's box is NOT a pre-order and will be sold in a first come, first serve basis. So while it falls under the same time frame as previous pre-order windows, once it sells out, it will be marked sold out.

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


Cupcake Polish Defying Gravity 
Two coats
Lime green linear holographic with gold shimmer, gold flakes, and holo micro-glitter
Inspired by: Wicked
Could you make a "Wicked" inspired polish and have it be any other color? Well you could, but this is exactly what I would have envisioned myself. Lots of extra detailing from the flakes, shimmer and glitter. Nice smooth application with just two coats needed for coverage.

Different Dimension I Am Not Throwing Away My Shot 
Two coats
Metallic brown linear holographic with copper and gold shimmer and gold micro-flakes
Inspired byHamilton
I have not had the pleasure of seeing Hamilton but picturing the show-bill and costuming, this inspired polish fits well. I love metallic holos and the golden brown coloring is oh so tasty. Slightly thicker formula and over-all easy application with two coats.

 Glisten & Glow Bend & Snap
Two coats
Punch pink with coral undertones linear holographic polish with glistening platinum flakes and and scattered turquoise flakes
Inspired byLegally Blonde
As with the Wicked inspired polish, could you have any other color but pink for this "Legally Blonde" polish? Nope! I stand firm on that. This is an understated but still quite saturated punch pink and I like how the platinum flakes glint in the base. No issues with formula or application.

Cadillacquer Sing Once Again With Me
Three coats
Silver linear holographic with red shimmer and small red and black glitter
Inspired by: Phantom of the Opera
I have to confess that I hate the musical and story of Phantom of the Opera. It's....just not for me. BUT! This is a lovely and sparkly polish, and ties in well with the inspiration, so regardless if you are fan of the musical or not, I think many will appreciate its beauty. It is a bit more sheer in formula,  three coats got me the opacity I have shown here.

  1. Such gorgeous colors! And finally someone who isn't in love with the story from Phantom of the Opera. I enjoy the music, but the story... not so much.
