It is time for me to show you The Holo Hookup Box August 2017 Enchanted Forest!
It’s that time again! Time for The Holo Hookup Box! The theme for August is Enchanted Forest. When I think of an Enchanted Forest my mind goes to fairies and other magical woodland creatures. The girls from The Holo Hookup used the photo below as their inspiration.
This box is filled with holo-y goodness, hence the name. 😉 Every month Glisten & Glow, Different Dimension and Cupcake Polish get together with a guest maker to bring us a phenomenal and well thought out box. This month Tonic Polish is the guest and the theme is Enchanted Forest. Pre-orders for the August 2017 box go live at 9pm EST on July 21st until July 28th at 9pm EST.
THE HOLO HOOKUP BOX AUGUST 2017 ENCHANTED FOREST
All four of these holographic polishes applied with zero issues and were all opaque in two coats. My swatch photos below show two coats of polish plus top coat.
CUPCAKE POLISH “FIELD OF FLOWERS”
“Field of Flowers” is a lavender super linear holo with blue shimmers.
On top of this gorgeous purple I added black flowers using the What’s Up Nails Floral Paradise stamping plate.
DIFFERENT DIMENSION “ENCHANT-MINT”
“Enchant-Mint” is a misty light mint linear holo with added shimmers and holo microglitters that twinkle and dance like fresh dew in the morning light of the forest. To me this polish is a bit more blue than mint, but that may be caused by the shimmers.
I added pink floral stamping to this stunning polish using Pueen Secret Garden 01 plate and Pueen Pink Ladies stamping polish.
GLISTEN & GLOW “FAIRY’S TRYST”
“Fairy’s Tryst” is a silver linear holographic with golden green shimmer of the twinkling lights reflecting off of fairies wings. The golden green shimmer is there I swear! It was just being very camera shy!
I added stamping to this amazing silver using Powder Perfect Metallic Green stamping polish and Uber Chic Beauty 4-02 plate.
TONIC POLISH “DRYAD’S GROVE”
“Dryad’s Grove” is a mysterious forest green holo with an inner maroon shimmer that shifts to gold and tiny ultra holo microglitter sparks.
In the nail art for this one I tried to pull out the gold sheen by adding gold dots over white stamping. The stamping was done using plate 6-02 by Uber Chic Beauty.
THE HOLO HOOKUP BOX AUGUST 2017 ENCHANTED FOREST NAIL ART
Of course I kept going with the nail art. For this first look I used all four holographics in a color block design.
Using all four polishes again, this time in a dry brush over white. I then added black flowers using the What’s Up Nails Fields of Flowers plate and topped it off with Glisten & Glow‘s Matte Top Coat.
In this next look I used “Field of Flowers” and “Enchant-Mint” in a reverse stamping technique. The plate is Floral 01 by Powder Perfect.
Last but not least is a design using “Fairy’s Tryst” and “Dryad’s Grove.” I added a bit of each one over black and then stamped over it with the Powder Perfect Floral 01 plate.
Here is one last look at the nail art.
