Addicted To Holos: August Box 2015

Hey guys! So this post was supposed to be up 2 days ago but my computer decided to stop working. It's pretty old actually, so time to start looking for a new one! I have to use my brother's computer for now. Anyways, today, I have the new Addicted To Holos indie box for August 2015. It is gorgeous, check out all the swatches down below.

I'm sure most of you have heard of this amazing indie box! But in case you didn't here all the details:
    • It's bi-monthly, so it's only released every 2 months.
    • It features five awesome brands, including Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer, Literary Lacquers, Philly Loves Lacquer, The Polish Bar, and Sweet Heart Polish 
    • It is an all holo box. Can it seriously get anymore perfect than that?!
    • It cost $60 USD plus shipping (open to both domestic US addresses and international addresses as well)
    • It's only available for purchase as a pre-order. The pre-order window is open for one week, so plenty of time to get those orders in!
The new August 2015 box will be available for pre-order starting Monday, August 8th to Monday, August 17th. You can purchase it here. Now onto the swatches!

Blue Eyed Girl Lacquer Heat Lightning is a described as a steel grey linear holo with pink and royal blue glass flecks. I wore 2 coats.

Julie never disappoints with the formula and application of her polishes. They always go on so smoothly! I'm not a huge fan of greys, but I loved this one. And I'm not just saying that! I literally don't have anything like this in my collection. 

Literary Lacquers Can't Work By Lime Light is described as an electric lime mega green linear holo, inspired by the poem Lime Light by Kay Ryan. I wore 3 coats.

This is definitely a favorite of mine from the box. It's not a in-your-face lime, but it's definitely bright. I reeealllyyy like this one. So gorgeous. Great formula and application too! 

Philly Loves Lacquer Fallen Ember is described as a brownish red holo filled with purple and blue flecks. I wore 3 coats with a topcoat. 

Sun Shot
This is such pretty deep red. I really like what Philly Loves Lacquer was going for here, but the formula and application was pretty thick and difficult to work with. Try doing thin coats for easier application.

Indoor Lighting

The Polish Bar Surf Blue is described as a light aqua linear holographic with a slight golden sheen. I wore 3 coats.

What a lovely shade of blue! Great formula and application too!

Sun Shot

Sweet Heart Polish Hot August Nights is described as a true green linear holo with gold and green micro glitters. I wore 3 coats.

The title of this polish perfectly describes SoCal right now. It is so hot, you gotta have the ac running all night! It's brutal. So I'll just ignore the title and stare at the pretty polish. I'm a sucker for greens, but even if you're not, you're gonna like this one. It's really beautiful. Great formula and application.

Overall, I really enjoyed this box. Everyone did a great job with each of their creations. I'm sure you'll enjoy it too. The new August 2015 box will be available for pre-order starting Monday, August 8th to Monday, August 17th. Purchase it by clicking here.
