THE HOLO HOOKUP collaboration box for February 2016 : Swatches and Review

Hi there, my darlings! February is a very special month for me--it's the birth month of my favorite person, my late grandfather AND the month when I first started ColorSutraa 3 whole years ago! Can you believe it? Oh how time flies when you're having fun! Speaking of special, I'd like to share the next installment of The Holo Hookup collaboration box featuring Jill of Glisten & Glow, Missi of Different Dimension and Sara of Cupcake Polish. The all-holo box for February 2016 will have Takko Lacquer as the special guest maker and February's theme is 'Elements'--if you're into astrology and sun signs as much as I'm into, you're going to LOVE this box!

Air from Cupcake Polish is a "periwinkle linear holo with strong pink shimmers". Lovely application and formula--the swatches below show 2 easy coats topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat. This is such a lovely, ethereal shade of blue that really speaks to an Air sign like me! And the shimmers are to die for!

With flash!

Earth from Different Dimension is a "rich brown linear holo with added multi-chrome flakies, as well as blue and green holographic micro-glitters". Just fantastic formula and application--this has a lot going on but applies so very smoothly! The swatches below show 2 easy coats topped with 2 generous coats of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat to bring it all together. This is just a complex chameleon of a polish--much like the Earth element itself!

With flash!

Fire from Glisten & Glow is a "fiery red linear holo with orange undertones with slight pink shift in certain lighting with scattered silver and cherry holo micro-glitters". Fabulous application and formula--the swatches below show just 2 coats topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat. You know how much I love reds and this one is breathtakingly beautiful, especially with those pops of holo microglitters!

With flash!

Water from Takko Lacquer is a "light aqua linear holo with intense gold shimmer". Buttery smooth, easy application and formula and full opacity can be reached in just 2 coats, depending on how thickly you paint your coats. I usually use very thin coats and I liked the depth of 3 coats so the swatches below show 3 thin coats topped with 1 thin coat of Glisten & Glow's HK Girl topcoat. This is my very first Takkito, simply because I'm always too slow for the restocks but MAN! What a gorgeous polish to mark my introduction to the brand! I think a new obsession has been born!

With flash!
