Addicted to Holos: October box
Addicted to Holos is a bi-monthly box featuring holographic polishes from Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer, Literary Lacquer, Philly Loves Lacquer, Sweet Heart Polish & The Polish Bar. The boxes are available for purchase via a week-long preorder at the beginning of every other month. The cost was recently reduced to $50 plus shipping.
Philly Loves Lacquer
A coralesque orange linear holo with gold flash and copper shimmer.
A pumpkin orange, right in time for fall. The gold and copper shimmers are pretty but the holo was difficult for me to see. The holo appears to be more scattered and sparse. The formula on this polish was better than most PLLs I've tried in the past. It was fluid and easy to apply. I wore two coats and topcoat.
The Polish Bar
A medium purple linear holographic with tiny pewter holographic glitter.
Such a stunning polish almost a periwinkle but just enough red to call it purple. This has a metallic and subtle holo finish with a super smooth, easy to control formula. Two coats for opacity
Blue-Eyed Girl Lacquer
Sepulcher by the Sea
Mint jelly linear holo with gold and pink glass flecks.
I consider this shade more of a sea foamy green than mint since it leans blue. More like the shade of a Tiffany jewelry box. I really enjoyed the sparkle of the glass flecks while wearing this polish. The holo in this one was subtle, but there is definitely a rainbow on the nail. Almost opaque in one coat so I went for two. The formula is nice and easy to apply.
Phoenix In Her Blood
A black cherry linear holo (inspired by Shakespeare's Sonnet XIX).
I love black cherry flavored things and when I saw the description of this polish I craved the Kool-Aid. -giggle- A nice strong linear holo effect, the kind that I love! I wore two coats of this buttery formula.
Sweet Heart Polish
Sugar & Spice
A warm brown linear holographic with a pink flash and copper holographic glitter.
Milk Chocolate, smooth creamy but with sparkles! A glistening dessert, that is this polish. Two easy coats that applied themselves and just look at that sparkle!
