The Holo Hookup September 2017 Royal Women

Press Sample Another long day of hauling out unwanted things! I found a lot more palettes (did you know I bought the Gwen Stefani Urban Decay palette? Neither did I) and other cosmetics that are still in boxes. I think I have a serious problem. If you think my polish collection is massive… you haven’t seen my cosmetics collection. It’s getting kind of insane. I sat on the floor of the living room sorting through my MAC collection and opened each lipstick and sniffed them all to see if they were still okay or not. Out of about 200 MAC lipsticks (about 70 of which I’ve never worn and are still in their boxes) only 8 no longer had the vanilla smell. I’ll call that a win. We also got my son’s remaining back to school shopping done. We got up early this morning and went to the mall (ugh……

DIFFERENT dimension Wild Spirit Trio

Press Sample Happy Friday! This was a fairly long week for me with a lot of personal things going on, so I’ve been a little on the quiet side. I do have some catch up to do in the next day or two but honestly, I’m so exhausted from real life stuff that I don’t know if I will just put it off until early next week or not. It’s really depending how I’m feeling over the weekend and whether I’m mentally up for it. I do have 3 photo sets ready though, so I’m trying to get those posted up. The first post will be Different Dimension Wild Spirit Trio. The Different Dimension Wild Spirit Trio is a Summer to Fall transitional release. The last couple releases from Missi were neon filled, so we’re starting to mellow out while still maintaining some vibrancy to our polish. All 3 shades…

DIFFERENT dimension Dorothy Dandridge

Press Sample Ready for the final shade I have for the August 2017 Polish Pickup? Remember, you can check out the links at the bottom of my post to see all 7 shades I covered this month! Last up we have DIFFERENT dimension Dorothy Dandridge! There are 40 indie makers involved this month, so that’s a LOT of polishes to choose from. Okay first we’re going to go through my spiel on Polish Pickup for those not familiar with it! Before I get into this lovely shade shown above, we’re going to talk about this new Facebook group and I’m going to describe it’s concept. The group is Polish Pickup. Polish Pickup offers a fun, interactive experience that allows you to submit theme ideas, vote for your favorite theme, and selectively purchase your favorite polishes every month. It’s NOT a box though. I think when it formed that was the major misconception…

DIFFERENT dimension 90’s Trio

Press Sample I have a new neon trio to share with you tonight, and it’s the DIFFERENT dimension 90’s Trio! I also did some mediocre nail art to go along with it. They work well for nail art, I’m just not that great at nail art in general, but I get by. I was pretty happy with what I did though. So the DIFFERENT dimension 90’s Trio is a simple 3 piece neon collection consisting of neon yellow, neon blue and neon pink. No shimmers or holo this time around – just straight cremes. I did find these to be leaning to the thick side, which makes them ideal for stamping (haven’t tried, but others have done successful stamps with them) but they water marbled beautiful (which I did!) and other easy techniques. This trio is ONLY available as a set, they will not be stocked individually. They are also Limited Edition…

The Holo Hookup August 2017 Enchanted Forest

Press Sample I have been so excited to share the Holo Hookup August 2017 Enchanted Forest! I did my swatches for it over a month ago and had to keep all hush hush, which is HARD! This month’s theme is Enchanted Forest and instead of 4 individual photos, they all based their polish off elements of one photo to work with. How adorable! So from this photo they each came up with a shade 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 August 2017 the guest maker is Tonic Nail Polish!  Of course we’re familiar with Tonic around here (and I actually have some new shades from her to share soon!) Let’s see what…
