The Holo Hookup August 2018: Tea Party - Swatches & Review

Sunday, 15 July 2018


Today I have something new to share with you guys - The Holo Hookup.  To be honest, before I was asked to swatch the August polishes I hadn't even heard of the Holo Hookup.  Yes I may be living under a rock, but in all fairness there is so many new polish brands, Facebook groups and subscription box types of things it's hard to keep up.  Anyway, I always love trying out new things so I naturally said yes to swatching the August polishes.  The theme for this month is Tea Party.


Cupcake Polish: Brew-tea-ful is a mulberry linear holographic polish with blue/teal/purple/pink shifting flakies and a red to gold shifting shimmer.  We all know I love holographic polishes with flakies and this one is a really pretty one.  The formula is great and is opaque in two coats.

Different Dimension: Hit Me With Your Best Pot is a dark sapphire blue linear holographic.  Nice colour with a good formula.  I used two coats for my swatch.

Glisten & Glow: Let's Get The Par-tea Started is described as a light beige creme based linear holographic polishes loaded with pink/red/gold shifting aurora shimmers.  This one is gorgeous in the bottle but sadly it is really sheer.  It definitely needs a base colour underneath.  I used four thick coats for my swatch (and it still isn't completely opaque).

Grace-full Nail Polish Cute Tea is a soft light pink linear holo with gold shimmer and gold flakes throughout.  I quite like this one.  It's a pretty pink and I really like the added gold shimmer and flakes.  The formula is great and easy to use.  My swatch shows two coats.

I quite like the polishes in this box.  They are all nice colours and the formulas are all easy to work with.  I do wish that the Glisten & Glow polish was more opaque though. 

The Tea Party box will be available for pre-order Saturday July 21st at 9pm EDT until Saturday July 28th at 9pm EDT.
