Hits Holographic - Hera

Hera. Wikipedia tells me she is the wife and one of the three sisters of Zeus.  Wife and sister? WTF?  I've always known Hera to be the queen of the gods, so I'm sticking with that.

Hera reminds me of my Aquamum spranken. Although this one is most definitely more of a teal colour compared to my spranken, but I think my spranken is more holo :)

Perfect application again. This was two coats with SV top coat. SV top coat does not dull these beauties.

The only other holo I have that is a similar colour is China Glaze DV8 from the OMG collection.
Here is a comparison of the two in the shade. DV8 is still slightly bluer.  The base jelly colour in Hera reminds me of China Glaze Atlantis.

As you can see, the holo effect on these Hits polishes is much more like the Ozotic and Glitter Gal polishes (and Spectraflair 1500-35).  There is still nothing like the OMG collection.  Nothing with rich colours and a strong linear holo.

Another lovely Hits polish, and unbelievably no other holo in my collection is like this one either.  I love that they are not dupes of the Ozotics.


  1. Yep!! Wife AND Sister! That Olympus, I'll say...

  2. This one is mine soon I hope!!

  3. I believe the only words that I can think of right now are 'holy' and 'crap'. In that order.

    I need this in my life! Fab swatches as always. No one photographs a holo like you do!

  4. I have so many Hits lemmings now, lol! *adds this one to the list* So beautiful! I love how vibrant the color is! <3

  5. Very pretty & I agree with capture holos really really well

  6. Thank you for the comp, I do prefer DV8 and am glad I have it.
