The Holo Hookup August 2017

Press Sample*

It's that time of the month again! August's The Holo Hookup box themed "Enchanted Forest" comes up with four polishes by the usual brands Cupcake Polish, DIFFERENT dimension, Glisten & Glow and this month's guest maker Tonic Polish.
It will be available for pre-order from July 21st at 9pm EST until July 28th at 9pm EST at theholohookup.bigcartel.com.


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

Dryad's Grove by guest-maker Tonic Polish, a forest green holo with maroon to gold shifting shimmer and tiny ultra holographic microglitter sparks. Oh yeah, I need moooore of these, this is one of my favorite greens now for sure!






Fairy's Tryst by Glisten & Glow, a silver linear holographic with golden green shimmer.






Enchant-mint by DIFFERENT dimension, a misty light mint linear holographic with pink shimmer and holographic microglitters.






Field Of Flowers by Cupcake Polish, a lavender linear holographic with blue shimmers.






And a nailart with all four polishes! I applied Fairy's Tryst as a base, then did a gradient with all four polishes over it and stamped with Stamped In Charcoal by Painted Polish (awesome stamping polish, got mine at Hypnotic Polish) and the Enchanted 06 and 15 plates by MoYou London.

The Impressionism Collection by Illimité

Press Sample*

The Impressionism collection by Illimité consists of six shimmery shades and is only available a livelovepolish.com. Currently it's sold out, but you can join a waitlist to be notified when they're available again! The collection is inspired by French Impressionism, a 19th century art movement that centered itself on moments and experiences of modern life.


Let's start with the swatches!

Falling Petals, a light pink polish with blue shimmer and holographic flecks. I'm wearing three thin coats with a glossy top coat, but you could probably get along with two as well if it doesn't matter to you that the free edge shines through a tiny bit :D





Sunrise Over The Seine, a medium pink polish with blue shimmer and micro holographic flecks.
I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.





Moulin Rouge, a fiery orange polish with golden shimmer. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.





Flâneur, a periwinkle blue polish with pink shimmer and micro holographic flecks. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.





Paris On A Rainy Day, a light blue polish with green-turquoise shimmer. I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.





Absinthe, a minty seafoam green polish with pearly pink shimmer and micro holographic flecks.
I'm wearing two coats with a glossy top coat.





You all know that I'm normally not that much into shimmery polishes, but there's one exception: Illimité's shimmery polishes. The application is dreamlike and they are totally elegant!
