Today I am reviewing Hits Poseidon. I would like to preface this post by saying I am a whore for holos. As soon as I finish my mani, I go running around finding people showing off my mani, while I try not to scream “LOOK HOW PRETTY!!!”

Now that I have a blog, I can now also go online, and start showing off my mani… Look how pretty!!

The application for this polish was great, and my top coat did not eat up any holo at all.  I was used OPI Top Coat followed by Seche Vite. All pictures are 3 coats. The brush in this bottle was perfect, the only downside was the size of the bottle. There is not enough polish! After just one mani, there is a noticeable dent in the amount of polish remaining.

Lacquer Look-a-Likes: HITS Poseidon vs. OPI Blue Moon Lagoon

As I was applying this mani, my first thought was, “I am pretty sure I have a polish like this” and I kept thinking about it as I did my clean up, and then it hit me: OPI Blue Moon Lagoon.

I was convinced they would be dupes. So I decided to swatch the two to compare and prove myself right.

Yea, clearly I was horribly wrong. Are these two similar? Yes! Would I say they were dupes. Not at all. While Poseidon is a beautiful baby blue holo, I would call Blue Moon Lagoon more of a Tiffany Blue holo. Both are gorgeous and you can really see the holo the second light hits the polish.

I wish I could tell you which polish is better, but it is impossible. I love them both. They both have their pros and cons. It is probably easier to get your hands on Poseidon, but you get more polish with Blue Moon Lagoon.
