HITS - Zeus

From HITS No Olimpo collection, Zeus is a charcoal base loaded with holographic shimmer. As with the other two shades I've tried from the collection, Zeus is a linear holo, rather than a sparkle.

Zoya - Zuza

The only shade that tickled my fancy from Zoya's "Surf" collection was Zuza, a metallic aqua shade with a distinct green tone to it. Gold & silver shimmer mixes together to give Zuza its metallic look, although I found the gold to be slightly more prominent on the nails.

Glitter Gal - Orange Sparkle

Yet another of the Glitter Gal polishes up for review; this time it's Orange Sparkle. I was after an orange holo to do tiger stripes over and decided to try this.

Orange Sparkle

Unfortunately, I'm not overly thrilled with Orange Sparkle. This has absolutely nothing to do with the quality of the polish, which is as good as the other Glitter Gal shades I've tried, but it's down to the tone & my personal preferences.

HITS Nail Polish - Hera & Atena

In my ever-going quest to find great holo polishes in fab colours, I came across the HITS nail polishes and, in particular, the No Olimpo collection.

As with the Glitter Gal 3D/Holo polishes, the No Olimpo colours are a linear holographic, not a sparkle holographic. As far as the colours are concerned, the two that caught my eye are Hera, teal, and Atena, hot pink.

Nails - Pink Leopard Tips

I've been a little slack in the nail department of late, mostly, I've been sticking to plain mani's in just one colour. Yesterday, I decided to do something a little more creative. Pink Leopard Tips is the result, but it was a bit of an accident. I tried something else first, wasn't pleased with the result & ended up doing this instead.

Illamasqua - Human Fundamentalism - Eyes

I recently went to my local Illamasqua counter to check out the Human Fundamentalism collection and, of course, came away with a few bits & bobs from the collection, as well a couple of other things. Some pieces that are part of Human Fundamentalism were already in my stash too. Since there's quite a few photos & swatches, I decided to break this up in to two posts. This one concentrates on eyes & the second, which will follow shortly, is all about lips.

The first item that grabbed my attention is the Powder Eye Shadow in Burst. I've been having a bit of a love-affair with teal recently, so I knew that Burst had to be investigated.
