Elevation Polish – The Hawaiian Punch Collection!

Of course as soon as I have a collection that has a few holos to blog, it rains for two straight days so I can’t get any good swatch photos! Finally the sun came back out and let me get shit done, hahahaha. The November collection for Elevation Polish is full of some great takes on pinks and purples!

Up first is Kilauea, a magenta creme. This one looks a bit different on everyone depending on your skin tone! It looked very very red on me, no matter what light I was using. The bottle alone looks pinker than it does when it is compared to my skin. The photos below are 2 coats + top coat.

Wai’anapanapa is a black creme with a red/purple/pink/blue flakie shimmer. The shimmer isn’t very in your face, but when the sun hits it, it has such a great sparkle! No issues with this(or any of the collection) formula, the photos below are 2 coats + top coat.

Next up is Purple Queen Anthias, a magenta/purple-ish pink with a purple microshimmer. This is my kind of pink! I’m not big on super ‘pink’ colors or lighter pink shades, so this is right up my alley when it comes to a pink. Photos below are 2 coats + top coat.

Bromeliad is a berry linear holographic polish. Perfect formula, no issues whatsoever. This is definitely a great fall/holiday shade! Photos below are 2 coats + top coat.

Kaihalulu is a deep burgundy with an intense red microshimmer. Holy cow, this is probably my favorite polish in the collection! It’s so dark and vampy, perfect for this time of year, and a great go-to when you need something a bit vampier than a regular red. Photos below are 2 coats + top coat.

Last but certainly not least is Sunset Among the Palms! It’s a violet/magenta holo with darker flake bits scattered throughout. It’s absolutely gorgeous, I love the flakie bits combined with the holo. Photos below are 3 coats + top coat.

Cerro Torre Nail Art!

Hi guys! Just a quick nail art post this morning. I used a few of my favorite Elevation Polishes to do some mountains based off of one of the polish namesakes, Cerro Torre!

 

The base polish is Elevation Polish – Pic de Sotllo, the mountains were done with Elevation Polish – Cerro Torre 2, and the shadowy bits of the mountains were a mix of Pic de Sotllo and Cerro Torre 2. The rest of the detail(snow, darker brown bits, black bits) is all acrylic paint.

(this is the actual photo of Cerro Torre that I used as a reference. I got a bit heavy handed with my own snow t hough, so my mountaintops are much snowier, hahaha)

Arrow Nail Art!

The TV show Arrow is easily in my top 3 favorite shows on right now(I don’t think I could choose a favorite between Game of Thrones, Once Upon a Time, and Arrow. I LOVE THEM ALL EQUALLY). The new season premiered on Wednesday, and I noticed that the intro screen had a different arrow on it than last time, and I jus thad to do some nail art based on it!

 

Polish used: Elevation Polish – Darkest Safari, accent nail was done with black and white acrylic paints.
