The Holo Hookup June 2019 “Amazon Rainforest” Review
This was my favorite color this month- it is the perfect coral with pink undertones and golden shimmer, and while it looks pure orange in photos it has a slightly more peach appearance to it in person that I adore. The next time I get a pedicure, this shimmery beauty will be going on my toes.
This is a stunning magenta holo with multi-colored shimmers and iridescent flakes, but it feels really similar to a lot of other colors that Different Dimension has produced for this box over the past year I have been reviewing it. The brush on this also felt a little different than normal (a little rougher, if that makes sense), but the formula was easy to work with.
It takes a special jelly polish for me to think “squishy” when I apply it, but that’s exactly what this bright green jelly with iridescent flakes calls to mind. I used two thin coats for the photos, but I would probably go with three in the future.
This is a very sheer ice blue holo with purple duochrome shift and multichrome flakes- it reminds me of Frozen, and while it is gorgeous, it is annoying how sheer it is. I would probably wear this over another color so I don’t have to do four coats to almost get full opacity.
The Verdict: The Holo Hookup is a great box if you love unique nail polish- and this month’s colors felt great for the summer, and I appreciate that the guest nail polish was from a Brazilian brand considering the Amazon theme. The $44 box cost is steep, but I think it is worth it when you look at the unique, box-exclusive polishes that are high quality and fun. All of these polishes are only available through this box.
