Next to pastels holographic/prismatic nail polishes scream Spring to me. In sunshine a holo nail polish like Hits Hestia from the No Olimpo collection transforms to an explosion, a rainbow full of colors and the more hours of sunshine the more time we have to stare at the gorgeous holographic/prismatic effect on our nails.
Sadly there aren’t many brands which are releasing holographic – especially linear holographic – nail polishes at the moment. Do you remember the good old OPI DS holos and the holos from the China Glaze OMG collection? Good times.
With the No Olimpo collection by Hits Speciallità there finally is a new line of linear holographic nail polishes out there to make us nail polish enthusiasts happy.
It is possible to stop staring at my nails while wearing Hits Hestia? No. At least in sunshine it is simply impossible to not look at my nails and admire the linear holographic effect of Hestia.
The formula of Hestia was good. It was easy to apply and I had no issues with the brush. It needed three coats for full coverage though. Based on the smell Hits nail polishes don’t seem to be 3free though because I noticed the familiar smell of toluene while applying Hestia.
For me it is almost impossible to not love a holo nail polish and Hits Hestia from the No Olimpo collection makes no exception. I adore the strong linear holographic/prismatic effect. The base color of Hestia is somewhere between lavender and mauve with even a bit of pink in it so also the base color is perfect for Spring.
In the center of my nails Hestia looks as if it also contains shimmer but I am not sure if these are only the holographic particles which don’t show their holographic effect due to the angle the light hits them or if it is real shimmer. Nonetheless I love the overall look of this beauty. The only bummer about Hits nail polishes is their size. 6 ml isn’t much.
Have you purchased something from the Hits No Olimpo collection and if yes which colors?
Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥
