As I'm actively avoiding taking off A Positive today, this is what I wore the day before yesterday.

HITS Speciallità is another of those "not-indie" brands; a Brazilian polish not (as far as I know) widely available in the U.S. and sold through a small(ish) intermediary like Llarowe (where I buy from), Ninja Polish or Harlowe & Co.

Okay, now let's look at Hestia.

Anyway. I bought my HITS Speciallità polishes from Llarowe and they're very reasonably priced at $8 each. The bottles are tall and thin (which I don't love; I'm always afraid they're going to tip over) but they hold a decent amount of polish at 6ml (the average size of American brands runs around 15ml).

Since I already talked about Hare Polish Eternal Flame, I'm just going to post the rest of my pics without any real comment. It's an incredibly hard polish to capture; in most of these pictures it looks orange rather than the pinky-orange-coral of its true coloring and the flakies are not always as visible as they are in RL. I'm not sure it entirely meshes with the yellow tones in my skin, but it's so lovely, I don't really care at all.

It's a very sheer polish; this is 4 layers and it still has a little VNL; next time, I'll try it with undies, maybe Lime Crime Peaches ♥ Cream. The polish is thick but not gluey. That means it flows well, but doesn't level great and was rather dense after 4 coats...but it does dry very quickly, so 4 coats wasn't the PITA it is with slower drying colors.
