Hits Phenomena: Moonbow

TGIF!! Anyone have big plans this weekend? I'm not sure what I'll be up to this weekend, probably something outside since it's supposed to be nice out this weekend. Hopefully it actually will be nice this time, unlike last weekend where all the news people said it would be nice and then it was crappy.

Today I have an awesome multichrome glitter from Hits Phenomena Collection to show you guys! It's Moonbow, which is my favorite of the 4! The Phenomena Collection is 4 multichrome glitters, they look a lot like the Ozotic Elytra polishes if you've seen those (528, 529 & 530). As soon as I saw these Hits polishes I needed them, I love the Elytra polishes but I only have 528 because I'm cheap. Anyway, back to Moonbow, Moonbow is multichromatic glitter that shifts between pink, blue, purple, yellow and green. I'm pretty sure it's a dupe of Ozotic 528...more on that at the end of the post!

My one complaint about Moonbow is that my brush was very wonky, it seems to be quite an issue with Hits. I have some of the Mari Moon polishes from them and all the brushes in those are awful too. I had to trim the brush in this quite a bit before I could actually use it, there were random bristles sticking out everywhere!

For the photos below I used 1 coat of Moonbow over black, all photos are in the shade! Sorry about the random shimmer on my fingers...not sure what that is from lol



I <3 close ups!

Since I mentioned how this seems to be a dupe of 528 let's talk about how they are different! The main differences between Moonbow and 528 are the size of the bottle and the price tag. The Ozotic is bigger in both of those categories. For me, I'd rather have a cheaper polish even if the bottle is smaller, I'll probably never get through a full sized bottle anyway. Another smaller difference is that the glitter is much more dense in Moonbow, I got great coverage with 1 coat over black. With 528 I would need 2 coats to get the same coverage.

Hits polishes are available from shop.llarowe.com the Phenomena polishes retail for $10 each!

  3. beautiful swatches. They actually have a small difference in the amount of glitter. I preferthe hits. Another way to achieve this mark is that Brazil is doing .... swap with Braziliangirls are crazy about different glazes and are produced in the Usa. Kisses

  10. I really feel bad when I see these gorgeous brazilian polishes. My brother in law lives in Brazil but he doesn't want to send me those beauties. Sigh sob. :(

  11. I was thinking it looked like 528...which I already have so at least I saved $10!

  12. I like the results of layering Moonbow over black like you described and illustrated in the photo. The finished look makes me want to go to a party! Glitter polishes are non-existent in my current stash but I may change that...especially if Moonbow provides nice colors with just one coat, like you mentioned. Now, let's just hope that I have the patience to wear this look, since I'm accustomed to just wearing one color at a time -- but for THIS, I have to layer glitter over black? Man, that's too much work, lol.

  16. Every bottle of Hits that i own has wonky brushes. It's really frustrating and makes me not want to use them!
