Elevation Polish The Seas Collection and Yeti's Oceanside Vacation Swatches!

Press Sample

Good morning! I have a very exciting post for you today! The new collection by Elevation Polish for June is called The Seas! The name alone had me very excited when I hadn't seen the colors yet, as I am a "sea color" fan (aka teals, blues, turquoise, etc.). Well, Lulu did not disappoint! There are 5 new colors and a limited edition Yeti glitter topper! I have all 6 to show you today, so grab your wish lists and get ready for the restock on June 7th!

Elevation Polish Ceram Sea
A green leaning teal creme.
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat.
This formula is almost a one coater of squishy and shiny polish. Slightly into the "crelly" category with the shine and thicker formula, but with the opaqueness of a creme.



Elevation Polish Thracian Sea
Dark charcoal creme with a hint of purple undertone.
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat.
With the same formula as Ceram Sea, it was squishy and a bit on the thicker side but very easy to work with. Almost a one coater and super shiny!



Elevation Polish The Med 2
Blue-teal with micro green shimmer and green/gold medium sized shimmer.
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat.
I wasn't lucky enough to snag the original SBP The Med, so I can't compare for you. But I do know that this is teal and not blue and is more opaque. Absolutely stunning shimmer in this, I love it!




Elevation Polish Bohai Sea
Blue holographic with medium holo density.
I'm showing ONE COAT below with no top coat.
I repeat, this is a one coater if you are careful! Wowza! Such a gorgeous blue and the holo isn't in-your-face distracting from the color, but it adds a lot to it!

Elevation Polish Weddell Sea
Off white (grey leaning) with silver shimmer, white shimmer, and sparse holographic pigment.
I'm showing two coats below with no top coat.
The shimmers are a really nice addition to keep this from being a flat white. The holo is there in person in the right lighting as a little sprinkle of rainbow, I've added a photo in direct sun for you to enlarge and see for yourself. Really pretty neutral polish!

Now we've come to the limited edition glitter topper: Yeti's Oceanside Vacation! This is only available for the two restocks in the month of June so don't hesitate to order if you love it like I do! I'm showing it two ways that I've recently worn it so you can see how the glitter changes with the base color!

Elevation Polish Yeti's Oceanside Vacation
A blend of light blue, teal, periwinkle hexes, squares, mini stars, off white mini circles, two sizes of taupe circles in a sparse density, along with sparse glow in the dark stars all in a clear base.
I'm showing one coat below with top coat over a gradient of Elevations Echinops and Puncak Jaya. I love the easy spreading of glitter and I didn't have to fish anything out. I thought this base went well with the family of colors in the glitter. 



The second way I wore Yeti's Oceanside Vacation was on an accent nail over Thracian Sea. The Med 2 is on the rest of my nails. Putting the glitter over a charcoal background really let the colors pop and you can see each shape and color easier this way. I'm showing one coat over Thracian Sea with top coat.



There you go, the new Limited Edition Yeti's Oceanside Vacation and The Seas Collection by Elevation Polish! What are your thoughts on this collection? Which are your favorites and must haves? My top two are The Med 2 and Ceram Sea because I'm a teal girl at heart, but I really love them all! 

Elevation Polish restocks happen twice a month, on the 7th (at 9PM Central MN time) and on the 22nd at (9AM Central MN time) at the site below.

Don't forget that this Limited Edition Yeti's Oceanside Vacation glitter topper will ONLY be available during the two restocks in the month of June. The others will be available for longer.
