Today, I’m showing you Zeus Reformulated, from Brazilian polishmaker, HITS. This version is a new take on the line’s original (and very popular) deep charcoal grey holographic lacquer of the same name.

Teensy back story: Some months ago, I borrowed the original Zeus from my co-blogger (and daughter), Liz’s Buffalo-based stash, for a swatch and review post. T’was a great polish, but it wasn’t 3-Free. End of back story.
The original Zeus (left) is a dark-grey prismatic holographic polish.
It flashes all manner of gold, green and blue holo goodness.
The reformulated version is close, indeed very close to the original.
And I suspect most thinking people wouldn’t quibble about the difference.
But I’m not like most thinking people. I’m a lacquerholic, and these babies are in no way twins.
The reformulated version is significantly bluer than the original. But being the blue-believer I am, this doesn’t present a problem. In fact, the new and improved version is….well, frankly, it’s right up my alley…
FYI, Zeus Reformulated is self-leveling, meaning that it applies easily and dries smooth. That’s something I love in a polish. But the linear holographic effect? Not the strongest I’ve seen. Still, it’s a holo and a pretty one at that.
Well, before we head out the door, let’s see it stamped up with a random selection of subtle stamping, using Kismet, a gold Color Club holographic beauty. A layer of HK Girl Top Coat sealed the stamped impression….
A little too subtle for my taste, but it’s certainly good enough to wear, until the next paint job.
But enough about me and my nails…
What are you wearing on your fingertips, right now? I’m dying to know…
