This weekend went by entirely too fast, and here we are starting a brand new week! This morning I’m squeezing a post in before work starts. We usually leave the house around 6:45am so I can get Jacob to school by 8:10 (yes, traffic sucks that much here) and I can get to work by 8:30. Since it’s Columbus Day, traffic was lighter than expected (thanks Waze… you said it was heavy traffic) so I had time to get Jacob to school by 7:35 and I swung by Starbucks for some coffee before heading in. Now I’m at work a bit early and trying to wake up still.
We’re going to take a peek at The Holo Hookup November 2019 The Thankful Box first thing today!
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. The guest maker this month is Turtle Tootsie Polishes!
Each shade in the box has holographic elements of some sort in it. It may be scattered, linear, subtle or in your face, but an element of it is there. Some makers may incorporate other elements such as shimmer, glitter or flakes – but it will be in conjunction with holo.
This month’s theme is The Thankful Box and I love the theme. It’s always so easy to look at the negatives, so it’s the little reminders like this that remind you that you have a lot to be thankful for. I’m personally thankful for my son – who is easily the best thing that happened to me. Even knowing now what I’d go through with his father and everything after I left him, if I had the choice to go back and do it all over again – I would, just for the simple fact that having Jacob made everything worth going through. I’m also incredibly thankful for Nick who moved across the US 10 years ago (yeah… it’s our 10 year this month) and made a life with me and my son. He stepped up and helped me out with Jacob when he really didn’t have to, and at times made me realize I wasn’t effing up this whole mom thing after all (can’t tell you how many meltdowns I’ve had thinking I was a sh!tty parent.)
Alright, who’s ready to look at this box? I’m PMS’ing and getting overly emotional.
Cupcake Polish | Thankful For Love
Thankful For Love is a rich berry red linear holographic with red and blue holographic microglitters mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
For the apples I used What’s Up Nails plate B021 – Autumn Tales, and Hit The Bottle A Vermilion To One stamping polish.
Different Dimension | Thankful For My Children
Thankful For My Children is a deep, cool toned violet linear holographic with ultrachrome chameleon flakes, silver holographic microglitter and holographic flecks mixed in. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
For this I used Lina Nail Art Supplies plate 4 Seasons – Autumn 01.
Glisten & Glow | Thankful for Health
Thankful for Health is a deep midnight blue scattered holographic with added holo flakes, as well as blue to teal, purple to pink, and orange to red ultrachrome chameleon flakes. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
The base color is so deep, I actually thought it was black at first.
I used Lina Nail Art Supplies plate Autumn 02 for this.
Turtle Tootsie Polishes | Thankful For Friends
Thankful For Friends is a deep emerald green linear holographic with electric blue micro flakes and aqua shimmer sparks. I used 3 thin coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
I used What’s Up Nails plate B021 – Autumn Tales for this look.
The Holo Hookup November 2019 | The Thankful Box
A beautiful autumn palette. It’s a nice reminder of things to be thankful for, plus you can buy the box and give a polish within it to specific people who you are thankful for, like your child, close friend, significant other or best friend you love, as well as friends that just make your life a better place.
Since it’s on subject, I’m also thankful for everything the nail community has done for me personally. I’ve met some incredible friends through it – and this December, my blog turns 8. It’s been an amazing ride so far, and I couldn’t have done with without any of you.
