This is 3 coats of Zeus with no topcoat. It's so much more holographic in real life but my lamp kind of killed that effect. Considering how dark it is, and how I normally dodge dark polish, I'm really blown away with how much I love it. It's divine! (Pun intended, ha!)
Zeus is more of a black than a charcoal, which seems to be more common lately. If you're looking for an actual black linear holo, this is it. While the linear effect isn't super strong, it definitely isn't scattered - they do pull to create the coveted linear effect.
Blurry macro nail shot to show the rainbow. I'm so happy I splurged on the Hits!
So that fancy layer combo I was talking about? It's incredible. My Secret Santa spoiled me and sent a package with some fantastic polishes, Nabi Iris Jumbo Glitter being one of them. I put one coat over my existing Zeus manicure and almost keeled over.
It's an instant galaxy effect. My nails looked like a photo of the Milky Way. I'm in love! My first Nabi and holy cow is it a good one. I sealed this manicure with one coat of Out the Door, by the way.
