Speciallita Hits Ares

Here's another one of the Speciallita Hits No Olimpo polishes; the coveted red holo!

I like it, but don't love it. This one is way less holo-y than Apolo and Hera. In normal lighting, when the holo effect is not as prominent, the shimmer tends to come off as coppery on me (and I don't like that look on my skintone).

I have seen gorgeous layering combinations of this over darker, vampier reds, but since I'm not a huge fan of red to begin with, I no longer own any really dark, vampy reds! Haha. I bet it would have looked nice over Essie Masquerade Belle!

Also, the brush on this one was a bit wonky. It was fluffy/poofy one one side. Small annoyance.


  1. This is quite pretty.  What an amazing set!!  I have to say that the blue/green and purple range of holo's are my faves! ^-^

  2. Oh my goodness, I absolutely Looove this!

  3. I love it. The base is very pretty and all of the glittery colors are icing on the cake.

  4. That's a really pretty colour! Love the sparkles and the effect!

  5. SO gorgeous! OMG I need some Hits!

  6. Sorry you didn't love it, but I love reds, and I think this is gorgeous!
