The Holo Hookup March 2018 Gelato

Press Sample Running behind a little again! The beginning of the year is such a whirlwind every year. We have the holidays, then Nick’s birthday and yesterday was Jacob’s birthday (mine is in March). Plus we were thrown a curveball with the loss of my grandfather. Things are starting to calm down now, so I should be back on track. Today I have The Holo Hookup March 2018 Gelato Box to share with you! The theme this month is Gelato! As always, I’ll do a quick rundown for those new to The Holo Hookup! This is an all holographic box and each month it will have 3 constant indie makers in it – Glisten & Glow, DIFFERENT dimension and Cupcake Polish. Each month there will also be one “guest” contributor, and for March 2018 the guest maker is Lilypad Lacquer! Let’s see what they have in store for us this month! Cupcake Polish – Blueberry…

Sassy Pants Polish Valentine’s Day 2018 Duo

Press Sample I have had these photos done for a bit, but was waiting on a release date to share, and that day is here! Today I have the Sassy Pants Polish Valentine’s Day 2018 Duo to share! These are both stunning scattered holographics that are going to be available for a 1 week preorder starting today! These are limited edition and once the preorder is done, they will be gone for good. Let’s jump right in and take a closer look at both of these shades. I actually was loving this Valentine’s set because they aren’t the typical pink and red type duo, so they can be worn year round. Love ‘n’ Lingerie Love ‘n Lingerie is a lilac pink scattered holographic with hot pink holographic microflecks mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Gold ‘n’ Roses Gold ‘n’ Roses is a beautiful rose…

Vapid Lacquer February 2018 Releases

Press Sample I’m starting this post fairly late at night, so I’m hoping I get through it tonight. I have the Vapid Lacquer February 2018 Releases to share! The Vapid Lacquer February 2018 Releases consists of the Basic Bitch Collection, which is a gorgeous array of neutrals ranging from light and shimmer to dark and bold! We’ll also see this years Birthday Bitch with a new spin, as well as Criminal Mischief! These are all set to release on February 17th (my son’s actual birthday!) along with the restocking of some customer favorites, and the addition of some new scents and revamped favorites! Since these are neutrals, I do want to point out that I am very fair skinned and I have cool undertones. Neutrals can be tricky with all the undertones. My foundations are usually Fair Cool Toned foundations. I’m right a few notches above Porcelain in that category. At the…

Don Deeva Jello Shot UP Jints

Press Sample I have an amazing post for you all this afternoon! We’re going to look at the Don Deeva Jello Shot UP Jints today! The Don Deeva Jello Shot UP Jints are sheer jelly tints with a little magic in them. Each one contains Unicorn Pee pigment! These are incredibly versatile and can be used alone, over cremes, or over other shimmers/holos/glitters for fun effects. They also water marble and can be used in different nail art techniques (like lead lighting and pond manicures.) These release tomorrow, and I cannot tell you how excited I am! I already need a definite backup of 2, but I might just grab them all. You can never be too safe! Alright – let’s jump in! For my swatches, the main set shows each of the Don Deeva Jello Shot UP Jint shades on their own in 3 thin coats. Then I’ll have 2 photos…

Emily de Molly February 2018 Releases

Press Sample I have one more post tonight! Cause when you are short on time and running around, the best thing to do is type up a blog post. Everything usually just falls into place… right? At any rate – I have the Emily de Molly February 2018 Releases to share now! Tonight we have some shimmers, some holographics and 2 thermals to take a look at! These release tomorrow, so I might be a little last minute, but I’m still on time! Let’s jump right in! Art of Structure Art of Structure is a honeycomb orangish yellow holographic with silver micro glitters mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. Change of Pace Change of Pace is a pale baby pink base with strong violet shimmer, as well as copper flecks, orange micro glitters and silver micro glitters. I used 3 thin coats and…
