I have some holographic goodness from Elevation Polish to share with you today. I am excited to have the opportunity to review these pretty polishes for you, as I am a major fan of the brand. I’ve had these for a little while, as the weather in my area has been brutal over the winter months so it was extremely difficult to capture any days of sunlight (which were very few). Lulu usually likes her polishes captured in multiple lighting settings, as they are complex and gorgeous, but sadly, I couldn’t deliver in these conditions. Anyway, let’s take a look at some of the beautiful polishes she sent me to share with you.
The Sea Was Red is a gorgeous multi-chrome holographic polish. It is described by the brand in the following manner "a red to Gold/Orange duochrome super holographic." The formula was absolutely perfect and I had no issues when applying. It was practically opaque in just one coat, but I used two as always. This is stunning and looks great with my complexion!
Silversword, according to the brand, is
"a metallic Silver shimmer in high density, a tad of green shimmer, holographic (low/medium density, spectraflair) and it glows softly in the dark." The formula was good on this one and required two coats for best results. I really like this kind of silver because some silvers tend to look slightly weird on my because of the warm undertones to my complexion. Silversword also glows-in-the-dark, which actually freaked me out because I noticed it glowing while sitting on my desk and I wasn’t aware of that property, so it took me by surprise! LOL!
Here is a shot of the GITD. It has a really nice green glow to it! So cool!!
Bohai Sea is described as "a bright blue, medium density holo.” Let me tell you…WOW…JUST WOW!! From the time this was first previewed, I knew it just had to be mine. I absolutely adore this color and the polish itself, makes it so easy to love. The formula is impeccable! I mean…there is nothing bad to say about it. It is thick (in a good way), creamy, and has the best application ever! I know…I’m a bit over the top, but you get what I mean though. The consistency of the formula allows it to be completely opaque in just one coat, but I used two here. I also like that the holo pigment isn’t super strong, as it doesn’t overpower the base and leaves the perfect amount of holo to drool over. There is nothing not to love about this one. If you love blue polish, this is for you!
Tre Cime di Lavaredo is described as a "pale gold linear medium density holo with gold micro-flakes and green flash." Again, this is an gorgeous polish. The formula on this one was okay, not as great as some of the others I’ve had from the brand. Don’t get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with the formula. I think I may just be a tad spoiled by the nearly perfect formulas Elevation regularly produces, so this one ends up being just okay. Anyway, I used two coats here, but I actually really liked the way this one looked in just one coat. If I weren’t taking pictures of it, I’d totally wear it with only one coat. I don’t know why, but there was just something about the subtle femininity that revealed itself in the first coat that I loved.
Just Like Night Time is "a navy medium to high density holographic with blue, teal, aqua shimmer." I’m pretty sure I sound like a ridiculous broken record here, but this is another with a flawless formula. I use two coats, but it ewas practically opaque in one. The lasting power on this one is excellent as well. I wore it for about six days without any cracks, chip, or peeling and my mani was still going strong upon removal.
Overall, I am extremely pleased with these holographic polishes from Elevation. Whether you are a fan of subtle or strong holos, Elevation Polish has what you need. The uniqueness, creativity, and quality with these products are what place this brand as one of the iconic leaders in the indie nail polish industry.
