Hi everyone! Today I have a preview of the new Elevation Polish collection, Heights of Hawaii. Overall, this is another stunner of a collection from Elevation. There is even a polish that glows in the dark! (and you all know how much I love GITD nail polish, hahaha)
Up first we have Pa’ako. According to Elevation, this one is a soft pink creme, and it may lean a bit nude on some skin tones. I really like this color! It reminds me of a creme version of Mount Augustus(another Elevation that had shimmery bits and stuff). As usual with Elevation Polish cremes, the formula was fantastic, no issues during application. The photo below is 2 coats + seche vite.
Next up is Haleakala! This one is a Wine/Purple/Red Holographic with very light gold shimmer. Again with the gorgeous factor! The holo isn’t too overpowering, and it is a beautiful plum/wine purple. This was a fun adventure, the sun has been mostly behind clouds today. I painted my nails with this polish and then waited about an hour to get some decent sunlight. Photo below is 2 coats, no top coat.
The glitter topper of the collection is called Plumeria. It is a multicolored mix of circle glitter in various sizes, all in a clear base with a blue shimmer. The shimmer is pretty in person, but it would not pick up in photos for some reason. On the purchasing page for this polish, Elevation leaves some application tips that I found came in handy: “To achieve more glitter per nail, dunk brush in polish, swipe brush on the inside neck of the bottle, grab the circle glitters from the inside neck and apply directly to the nail.” That method definitely worked for me! Photo below is one-ish coats of Plumeria(I say one-ish because I cleaned off the brush, swiped it over the nail once to get the blue shimmer down, and then went back and added glitters here and there with the brush). Pointer to pinky, the polishes I layered it over are: American Apparel – Hassid, Elevation Polish – Pic de Sotllo, Elevation Polish – Jengish Chokusu, and American Apparel – Palm Springs.
And finally, we have my favorite of the collection: Silver Sword! Mmmm this polish. According to the Elevation website, this polish is a “Heavy Silver shimmer, holographic with slight hints of green shimmer. Holographic pigment is low/medium density. The holographic flair isn’t strong. This polish softly glows in the dark.” I absolutely love the slight holo to it, and YES GLOW IN THE DARK. The photos below are 3 coats + seche vite. First photo is in the sunlight, second is after charging the polish under my black light for 30-45 seconds and then turning out the lights.
This collection will be available on January 14th at 9PM CST. As I mentioned in the December Fan Collection post, due to an injury, there was no restock on the 7th this month, it was postponed to the 14th.
