Time for The Holo Hookup February 2018 Love Connection themed box.
Sunday Funday! Actually I have zero plans today except that I will probably be watching the Steelers playoff game. And because it is the 14th of the month, I get to show you The Holo Hookup February 2018 Love Connection swatches and nail art. Who remembers the Love Connection? I used to watch it all of the time. 🙂 Basically it was the tame and mild version of Singled Out, which was another of my favorites! Let’s check out the polishes.
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 Beyond The Nail is the guest and the theme is Love Connection. Pre-orders for the February 2018 box go live at 9pm EST on January 21st until January 28th at 9pm EST.
THE HOLO HOOKUP FEBRUARY 2018 LOVE CONNECTION
All four polishes are perfect in color, holo-y goodness, and application. I tried to stick to a Valentine’s/Love theme as well as I could.
CUPCAKE POLISH “XOXO”
“XOXO” is a silver holographic polish with lots of iridescent flakes and pink shimmers. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
I decided on a lipstick look for this. It is clearly about my love of lipstick! 😉 The stamping was done using Lina Nail Art Supplies ‘A Fair To Remember’ plate and Uber Chic Beauty ‘Love & Marriage 04’ plate. I also used the Different Dimension contribution to this box for the lipstick color.
DIFFERENT DIMENSION “FOREVER”
“Forever” is a creme based bright pink linear holographic polish. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
On top of this pink I added a textured background using Lina Nail Art Supplies ‘Make Your Mark 01’ plate and Twinkled T‘s pink stamping polish. The LOVE scrabble letters were done using What’s Up Nails plate B019.
GLISTEN & GLOW “SMOOCHES”
“Smooches” is a cherry red linear holographic polish kissed with holographic micro glitters. Shown is ONE coat plus top coat.
On top of this stunning red I added a love letter background using What’s Up Nails plate B019. The XOXO design was done using Uber Chic Beauty ‘Love & Marriage 04’ plate, and the graffiti hearts were done using Lina Nail Art Supplies ‘Make Your Mark 01’ plate along with the Beyond The Nail holo from this month’s box.
I added a matte top coat to this one as well using Glisten & Glow‘s Matte Top Coat.
BEYOND THE NAIL “WINK”
“Wink” is an ultra holographic linear polish in a violet base with a rose pink shimmer. Shown is two coats plus topcoat.
I decided to go with fishnet and hearts for the nail art over this pretty purple. The fishnet design was done using Lina Nail Art Supplies ‘A Fair to Remember’ plate and the hearts are from the Bundle Monster + elleandish BMXL201 plate. I filled the hearts in using Different Dimension‘s pink holo and added the dots using Glisten & Glow‘s red holo. The red stamping polish is from Twinkled T.
This next two looks are ones using all four of this month’s polishes. Up first is a dry brush with stamping. I used the Cupcake Polish as the base and then dry brushed the other three over that. the stamping is from Uber Chic Beauty ‘Love & Marriage 04’ plate.
This one is a simple gradient using all four. The LOVE was stamped on using Bundle Monster + elleandish plate XL201.
Don’t forget to order yours on the 21st of January and to watch the makers’ Instagram accounts for all the lives they will do during the sale week. And for more info check out the Facebook group.
