The Holo Hookup November 2017

Press Sample*

Be prepared for my favorite The Holo Hookup box EVER! November's theme is "Galaxy" and comes with four gorgeous holographic shades by DIFFERENT dimension, Glisten & Glow, Cupcake Polish and guest-maker Femme Fatale.

The box will available as usual for pre-order from Saturday, October 21st at 9pm EST to October 28 for exactly one week at theholohookup.bigcartel.com for 40$ excl. shipping.

Let's start with the swatches!
(I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat on each swatch.)

Milky Way by Cupcake Polish, a creamy periwinkle linear holographic.

Comet by DIFFERENT dimension, a blue linear holographic with blue to green color shifting shimmers.

Asteroid Belt by Glisten & Glow, a deep blackened indigo linear holographic polish with copper shimmers and tiny microglitters.

Exosphere by Femme Fatale, a berry linear holographic with turquoise shine and scattered silver holographic microglitters.

I also did a nailart again with all four shades :) I used Asteroid Belt as the base and just dabbed on a bit of the other three shades with a tiny piece of a make up sponge. For the stamping I used Glow Up by Twinkled T (purchased via twinkledt.com) and the Intergalactic Encounters (B011) plate by WhatsUp Nails (Press Sample, available at whatsupnails.com).

I never was THIS excited about a box before, not kidding! They all apply like a dream, the theme is awesome and the colors are like this box was made just for me :D

What do you think? Will you get one?

The Why Do We Fall? Collection and Sent I November (by @november_juliett) by Cadillacquer

Press Sample*

Look at these beauties! It's the Why Do We Fall? collection by Cadillacquer releasing today, September 25th at 8pm CET at hypnoticpolish.com and coming soon also to color4nails.com (Edit: Launch date is October 7th!).

The collection consists of nine shades with a lot of different finishes and the names are inspired by quotes of the Batman Trilogy and Songs by Hans Zimmer.

I'll also show you a new collaboration shade with @november_juliett which is part of this release as well... keep on reading ;) 

Let's start with the swatches!

The Fire Rises, a bright red crelly with black and white glitters and some very delicate golden shimmer. I'm wearing three thin coats with a glossy top coat, but if you're okay with your nail line shining through you'll get along with two coats as well for sure.

Journey To The Line, a dark red crelly with just a hint of holo in the base and filled with different sized red and copper glitters. I'm wearing three thin coats of this one and a glossy top coat as well, but as I already said it... you don't need the third one if you're comfortable with your nail line shining through ;)

Why So Serious?, a rose-leaning lilac holographic base with green shimmer, multicolored flakies and purple/magenta glitters. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.

Now We Are Free, a dusty blue-leaning purple with blue shimmer. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.

A Dark Knight, a dark blue-leaning purple base with multicolored flakies, red and silver glitters. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.

Remember Who You Are, a darkened teal base with purple to a red leaning copper shimmer. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.

Like Dogs Chasing Cars, a light grey-leaning blue with red glitters and a pinkish red shimmer. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.

Time, a slightly holographic light blue jelly base with a hint of iridescent flakies, white and light blue glitters. I'm wearing three thin coats with a glossy top coat and I think this one just isn't meant to be fully opaque, and that's totally okay because it's beautiful how it is :D

You Think Darkness Is Your Ally?, a black crelly base with different sized and shaped silver glitters and tiny red glitters. I'm wearing two generous coats with a glossy top coat.

And now... the already mentioned collaboration shade by @november_juliett called Sent I November. The shade is inspired by the finnish Mumin book called "Sent I November".

It's a steely blue crelly with gold glitters in different sizes and shapes. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.

These polishes are always a pleasure to swatch as they apply dreamlike, even if you need three coats :D I can't even tell you my faves as I like them all.. but yeah, my very favorite (haha) is Why So Serious? because the shade is gorgeous and I LOVED Heath Ledger as the Joker!

What do you think? :)
