The Holo Hookup: December 2017 – It’s Raining Men!

Standard

Day 7,397 without sun and I swear it may never be warm again. Ugh. Who’s in charge of the weather, cuz clearly they are WRONG.  If I somehow make it out of the house between now and April, it’ll be a straight up Christmas miracle.  Hibernation mode is officially kicking in, y’all!  Hopefully these blog things write themselves, otherwise what happens next is pretty much a crapshoot.

So before all the happiness goes away, let’s look at nail polish real quick.  It’s Holo Hookup time again and December’s box is like we all just walked into a room full of office supplies.  As in DREAM SCENARIO, cuz I can’t ever be normal, not even for a little bit. Here’s what you’re buying:

ALL OF THAT. IMMEDIATELY.

The theme for December is It’s Raining Men! and I can’t think of any better way to end 2017 but with a box full of pretty things.  With some nail polish on top, you know, for SAFETY.  Y’all better get ready:  ultra drool-y scenarios is happening in 3 .. 2 .. 1 ..

The inspiration pic:

YEP. And that’s really all you need to know.

While I attempt to grab a hold of my brain (although honestly, WHAT IS THE POINT), let me start off my saying that despite the surprising lack of LEONARDO DICAPRIO, I still want all these people .. errr, polishes .. sitting in my bedroom .. handing me a Starbucks .. putting the Cheetos in my mouth for me and without a skosh of the judgy eye ..

I’m sorry. SHOPPING CART! I want all these polishes sitting in my shopping cart. Seriously, can we start over? This post has spiraled all to hell.

Is Ryan Reynolds naked up there?

OMG, what?! SHUT UP, BRAIN. Moving on. (I think.)

Alongside our usual lovely ladies of the Holo Hookup, you’ll see Shannon with Pahlish sitting in the spotlight lookin’ so fancy.  Being the featured brand never looked so good!  So let’s start there, shall we?

PAHLISH: IDRIS

DESCRIPTION:  A soft milk chocolate taupe with rose gold shimmer and linear holographic finish

OPACITY:  Two coats plus glossy top coat

Shannon was inspired by actor Idris Elba, and I’m thinking she pretty much nailed it.  Cuz a polish this dreamy better have someone named Idris attached to it.  You know, if it can’t be Leonardo, that is.

Some nail art:

And I don’t hate it!  In fact, I kinda love it.  Whose blog is this, cuz it’s certainly not mine.  

Used the Lina Hipster, Geek or Chic 01 and the Feeling Shapely 01 plates for this one.  A box full of men and a mani full of mustaches.  How clever did it suddenly get in here?  (VERY.)

GLISTEN & GLOW: CHANNING

DESCRIPTION:  A dusty grey holographic with purple undertones and tiny touches of purple shimmer

OPACITY:  Two coats plus glossy top coat

Jill’s inspiration for this polish is the beautiful Channing Tatum.  If your first thought was Magic Mike well then you may continue to read this blog.  If your first thought was Channing, who? well then I feel var var sad about the state of your brain.

What is even happening right now?!  Look:

Actual effort alert!  And two decent nail arts in a row.  Let’s revel in this brief moment of mojo, cuz it’s about halfway out the door, I feel it.

Used the Lina 4 Seasons-Autumn 01 plate in case you’re curious.  And reversed stamped somehow without creating disaster.  Seriously, who is this person and what have you done with my blog?

DIFFERENT DIMENSION: JESSE

DESCRIPTION:  A creme based ivory linear holographic

OPACITY:  Two coats plus glossy top coat

Missi chose Grey’s Anatomy actor Jesse Williams as her inspiration, and OMG there goes all pretense of ladylike behavior.  Cue the drool buckets!  I’ll take a thousand.

Pretty good streak of mojo but then this happened:

Don’t ask.  But it’s clear:  we’re all back to normal now.  Blah.

Used the Uber Chic Beauty 21-02 plate in case recreations are in order.  (They’re not.  NEXT!)

CUPCAKE POLISH:  RYAN

DESCRIPTION:  A creme based sea green linear holographic

OPACITY:  Two coats plus glossy top coat

Sara’s inspiration for this polish is the Ryan Reynolds half of my two favorite Ryans (the other being Gosling), and basically we’re all just a big ole puddle of goo now.  Good thing we’re at the end of this blog, otherwise we’d be sitting here in mouth-gaping silence for the next 18 years.

Final nail art:

A last minute reprieve.  Super simple stamping, but I’ll take what I can get.  It’s either super simple or a stamp allll the things! sort of situation and never anything in between.  One of these days, I’ll get this nail art thing figured out.

Used the new Lina I Foil in Love 01 plate on this one!

THE ROUND UP 

Pre-order for this box starts on November 21 at 9pm EST and will run thru November 28 at 9pm EST.  And in case you don’t math well, that’s 7 days of panic heading your way. So 17 alarms and Post-It Notes in all the places? COMPLETELY NORMAL BEHAVIOR.  

Cost is $40 and shipping will begin December 12 or so.  Plus, there’s a COUPON!  Domestic customers can get free shipping on this box by using the FREESHIPUSA code at checkout.  If you are international, use code 5OFFINTL to get $5 off your shipping cost.  And then go ahead and buy like 25 more boxes cuz saving money is still saving money no matter how much money you’re spending.  Or something along that line.  I dunno.

  1. I wasn’t gonna get this one, but your post is seriously making me reconsider that stance. Even though a part of me is all THE BLINGIEST HOLO OF HOLOS, I reaaally love a good creme-holo. Also, my man!rain would be Benedict Cumberbatch. I would say, he could rain on me any day, but you and I both know that just sounds wrong.
