The Holo Hookup January 2019 “Cell-A-Brate Biology” Review
Cupcake Polish in Highly Cultured, 15 mL – Estimated Value $13 (this is an exclusive shade made just for The Holo Hookup, but check out other holographic polishes from Cupcake Polish here)
Highly Cultured is a gorgeous bright pink holo crème with opal iridescent glitters. I wish the glitter chunks you see in the bottle transferred to the nail, but other than that this was a great linear holo that applied smoothly.
Different Dimension in I Got My Ion You, 15 mL – Estimated Value $11 (this is an exclusive shade made just for The Holo Hookup, but check out other holographic polishes from Different Dimension here)
I Got My Ion You is a teal based linear holo cream with scattered gold micro flakes. This bright and cheerful color is just what I need when the dark winter blues strike. This polish had a great formula and no chipping when I wore it for three days without a top coat.
Glisten & Glow in #Cellfie, 15 mL – Estimated Value $12 (this is an exclusive shade made just for The Holo Hookup. Check out the other polishes offered by Glisten & Glow here)
#Cellfie is a yellow linear holo with pink shimmer and silver holo micro glitters. Yellow is such an underappreciated nail polish shade, and this gorgeous shade had a great formula. This is the polish I decided to keep on my nails, and I’m enjoying the brightness it adds to my cold and blustery day.
Bee’s Knees Lacquer in Asp Me About It, 15 mL – Estimated Value $13 (this is an exclusive shade made just for The Holo Hookup. Check out the other polishes offered by Bee’s Knees Lacquer here)
This is so cool- it’s a magnetic holo polish! This shade has a navy base and a copper magenta shimmer and linear holo. The magnetic effect was subtle, and this was an interesting counterpunch to the bright shades included in this box.
Here are the swatches! Please ignore my messy cuticles. This is with no top coat, and I ended up wearing this hand like this for three days with no chips!
Here is another shot- these really shone in the sunshine.
To Wrap Up:
Value Breakdown: This box costs $40 + $4 shipping, which means that each of the 4 nail polishes in the box has an average cost of $11.
