HITS Hermes

Happy Wednesday Peeps!

Unfortunately, I¬†don’t have a Pink Wednesday mani for you today because I am highly unorganized and haven’t remembered to do one in a while. But what I do have is a lovely holo: HITS Hermes.

Hermes is of course one of the beautiful holos from HITS’ No Olimpo Collection. It’s a golden-tan linear holo, and it’s probably the tamest holo that I own. That being said, it’s not my favorite color because I think it’s too close to my skin tone. And in case you haven’t noticed, I tend to go more for colors that have a little pop to them ūüôā

If you work somewhere that has restrictions on what colors you can wear on your nails, I’d say this¬†could be¬†a very work-appropriate holo. In the pics below I used 2 coats. Like the other holos in this collection, it applied like a dream and dried fairly quickly. Peep it:

So how do you feel about holos that are kind of tame like this?

You can purchase it and the other lovelies from the No Olimpo Collection from llarowe for $10.

That’s all for today my loves. Have a happy hump day!

Hits No Olimpo Demeter

Hey Peeps! Happy Friday!

It’s 11/11/11 and it’s Veteran’s Day!

*My dear Uncle Charles recently passed away, and he was a Vietnam Vet, so today’s post is dedicated to him*

Anyhow, today I have another yummy¬†polish from the Hits No Olimpo collection. It’s called Demeter and it’s an amazing orange holo!

I was so excited when I first saw pics of this lovely¬†so I hopped right on over to Llarowe and ordered it. I mean, it’s an orange holo, how could I not?!

I’m gonna stop talking and let you view this baby for yourself.¬† In the pics below I used 2 lovely coats. They all look similar, but you can see the holo goodness a little better in each one.¬†Peep it:

I love this orange holo! Nom nom nom! ūüôā

What do you lovelies think of this? Are you loving it as much as I am?

If you are, you can buy it  from Llarowe for $10.

Have a fantastic Friday and don’t forget to hug a Veteran!

Hits No Olimpo – Hera

Happy Sunday Peeps!

Sorry I’ve been really sporadic with my posts lately. I have a bunch of swatches that I’ve done, but I just haven’t been able to find the time to edit pics and write posts. I need to get back in the habit of scheduling all of my posts for the week during the weekend.

Anyway, today I have an absolutely amazing holo beauty for you from Hits Speciallita.

I’d honestly never heard of this brand¬†until I saw the lovely Leah Ann posting pics on Twitter¬†of their new polishes that she now carries in her shop Llarowe. I guess it’s a Brazilian brand and apparently they make insanely amazing holos!

They have a collection out called No Olimpo, which is full of awesome holos named after Greek gods. The one I have for you today is called Hera.

Hera is a turquoise, linear¬†holo beauty. Its mmmmmazing! And you know what? It’s¬†pretty close to being a dupe¬†for China Glaze DV8! Exciting right?

Anyhow, enough with the words and on to the pics. I used 2 coats in the pics below and the formula was super smooth and easy to control.  Peep the holo goodness:

Check out the holographic label on the bottle. Cool right?

.

And here’s Hera compared to China Glaze DV8…

.

.

Hera is on the left and DV8 is on the right

.

DV8 is on my index and ring and Hera is on my middle and pinky

.

In the pics you can¬†see that they’re not quite dupes because¬†Hera is a bit darker than DV8 and the holo pattern is different. On the nail wheel they look pretty darn close to being dupes though.

Either way, I say that Hera is a good cure for a DV8 lemming. Plus you can get it for only $10 from Llarowe.

I’m super in love with Hera. I wore it on my nails all week and I did not have one single chip. This stuff wears like iron. It’s insane.

What do you lovelies think of Hera? Do you agree that it may cure a DV8 lemming or are they not close enough for you? Have you heard of Hits before?

Let me know your thoughts and enjoy the rest of your weekend! ūüôā
