Time for The Holo Hookup May 2018 Mermaids themed box.
I always love sharing The Holo Hookup every month, but this is one of my favorite months of this box. First, the colors are phenomenal. Second, it is for May which is my birth month. Third, mermaids. Nuff said. Let’s check out these four beautiful polishes that make up The Holo Hookup May 2018 Mermaids themed box.
THE HOLO HOOKUP MAY 2018 MERMAIDS
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 Anchor & Heart is the guest and the theme is Mermaids. Pre-orders for the May 2018 box go live at 9pm EST on April 21st until April 28th at 9pm EST.
CUPCAKE POLISH “MERMAZING”
“Mermazing” is a sky blue linear holo packed with red and pink shimmer and iridescent flakes. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
On top of this sky blue I added seashells using the Born To Sail 02 plate from Lina Nail Art Supplies and starfish using the Mermaid Life plate from Uber Chic Beauty.
DIFFERENT DIMENSION “MERMAID HAIR, DON’T CARE”
“Mermaid Hair, Don’t Care” is a teal linear holographic loaded with color shifting UCC flakes. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
Over this teal I added a radial gradient using the Cupcake Polish contribution and added silhouettes of mermaids from the Uber Chic Beauty Mermaid Life plate. Love how this ended up looking like moons.
GLISTEN & GLOW “#MERMAIDSQUAD”
“#MermaidSquad” is a mint creme based linear holographic polish with color shifting blue to purple UCC flakes and a light dusting of gold shimmer. Shown is two coats plus top coat.
The Glisten & Glow and Different Dimension polishes this month are perfect for mermaid tails. So I did a gradient using the two and then stamped scales on using Stamped in Seafoam by Painted Polish and the Bundle Monster + Twi_Star XL211 plate.
ANCHOR & HEART “LET’S BE MERMAIDS”
“Let’s Be Mermaids” is an orchid pink holographic polish with a strong green to purple aurora shimmer and iridescent flakes that shift red/pink/gold/green. Shown is three coats plus top coat.
I added some seaweed over this pretty pink using the Bundle Monster XL24 plate that was filled in using the other holos from this box.
Because Anchor & Heart is the guest maker this month, I knew I had to add some anchor nail art. So using their holo and the Cupcake Polish holo I did a gradient. I then stamped over it using the Born to Sail 02 plate from Lina Nail Art Supplies.
This next look is something I haven’t done before. The stripes were done by making decals on my Twinkled T mat.
I then added octopus stamping over the stripes using the Bundle Monster + Twi_star BMXL211 plate and the Born To Sail 02 plate from Lina Nail Art Supplies.
Last but not least is my mermaid mani. The pinky and index finger were done using the Bundle Monster + Twi_star BMXL211 plate as was the tail. I used the Uber Chic Beauty Mermaid Life plate for the mermaid’s face and hair.
I sincerely hope you enjoyed seeing the nail art as much as I did creating it. This is one mer-tastic box that you won’t want to miss out on!
