Hits No Olimpo Holographic Nail Polishes

After Glitter Gal's Lizard Belly, there probably wasn't this much hype around a polish collection, as the Hits No Olimpo collection from Brazil. 
These polishes are all based off of the Greek Pantheon, and are all linear polishes as well. These have more of a jelly finish compared to the Glitter Gal polishes that were just previously posted. They're not a completely jelly finish but they're on the transparent side. 
For all of us in the US, they're available at Llarowe.com, which is where I got a whole lot of international brands. Llarowe is an independent nail polish seller that sells brands like A-England, Ozotic, Hits, and Ludurana just to name a few. I personally had a fantastic experience with them from communication, to shipping. I ordered my polishes on a friday and received them on a monday. Two of the polishes I ordered were actually backordered and they contacted me almost immediately after I filed my order. We had a very pleasant chat about being refunded and I almost instantly got my money back after we talked.
The No Olimpo polishes are $10 each.
Apolo
Apolo is a very pure blue holographic polish. It's on the sheer/jelly/transparent side so it needs three coats to get a good rich blue color but the holo builds that way and becomes amazing.

Ares
Ruby red holo. Again, on the sheer side, so it needs three to four coats to get a good red color. Totally worth it though!
The holo isn't as strong in this as in Apolo or the next two. It's strong but it's also harder to capture in photos.

Dionisio
Good Crayola Purple. Holo is strong with this polish, even inside. It gets like twice as strong outside. It's amazing! My favorite of the bunch.

Zeus
Zeus is a black jelly holo. It's apparently supposed to be pretty close to the first version of My Private Jet by OPI. I couldn't tell you officially though because I don't own that one.
This needed three to four coats for an opaque black.
