Indie Spoltight - Hit Polish is back!

It's no secret that I am huge fan of the indie polish brand Hit Polish.  Back in the end of 2013 Rachel, the brilliant mind behind Hit Polish announced that another business venture she had with her hubby would need her full attention and that she was no longer going to be making polish.  She had a huge "Everything Must Go!!" sale and even threw away all her recipes and supplies.

The other business did well enough for her to open up shop once again on May 15th of 2014.  Thing will be done a bit differently this time as she is doing it as a hobby.  Her currently line up is going to be available for purchase through August 14th.  The plan is to keep things simple and assess sales and demand sometime in July and then decide what products will be kept for the new relaunch.  There were two LE polishes also available that will not be a part of the permanent line up.  There is an impressive 35 polishes I believe that will be for sale.  The majority of those are spectraflair polishes.  Just before she closed up the old shop she had introduced them and they were very popular. This launch I picked up three of the new colors.

The formula on all three was very similar.  Each one went on a bit sheer for the first coat and dried quickly with a second thicker coat making them almost opaque.  There is a bit of visible nail line especially with Scotland the Brave but that is perfectly fine by me.  A third coat would easily have covered it.  This is very similar in formula to several other holos from other brands.

 Raspberry Fizz reminds me of scattered holographic version of SinfulShine Royal Flush which is said to be a dupe for Zoya Yana.  It's the perfect berry pink.

This is the truest to color.  Taken indoors with indirect light.

Radiant Orchid is the Pantone Color of 2014 and it's everywhere. This is the most subtle of all of them.  I adore this color.  It almost took on the look of Odette from the Zoya Naturel collection.

And finally my favorite Scotland the Brave.  This fun bright blue is perfect for summer.

Now here are the three polishes from last year that I purchased.  The formula is the same on these.    From left to right is Fern Gully, Blackened Amethyst and Pewter Goblet.  I will swatch them in a different post.
