Swatch Saturday: Elevation Polish Street Graffiti Collection!

Press Sample

Good afternoon, readers! I have some really exciting news to share with you. I'm officially part of the Elevation Polish "blogger team!" I am so honored to be added onboard, Elevation Polish has been one of my favorite brands for a long time. So YAY and thank you Lulu! To kick it off, I have the new Elevation Polish Street Graffiti Collection for June to share with you now--plus a favorite SBP-turned-core polish, When the Cherry Met the Spoon, that will also be available. Let's take a look!

There are a lot of different things going on in this collection! Holos, shimmers, chrome flakes, even a matte finish! I'm going to show all polishes both in my light box and in the direct sunlight to show off different aspects of each polish. Get ready for a ton of pictures!


Elevation Polish Melbourne
Medium blue with gold, green, blue, silver micro shimmer, and very light holographic pigment.
I'm showing two coats below with top coat. However, I almost got away with ONE COAT. It is so gorgeously pigmented and applies beautifully. Bonus: I had no staining, which is usually an issue with such pigmented blues. YAY!

Elevation Polish NYC
Matte/rubber black with silver micro shimmer.
I'm showing two coats below with and without top coat. This is gorgeous matte and glossy, but I prefer it in it's natural matte state. I had no application issues, which is nice from a matte finish polish.

With a coat of glossy top coat:

Elevation Polish LA
White crelly/jelly with soft silver pearl shimmer.
I'm showing three coats below with top coat. As with all whites, apply with care for the least amount of patchiness. I love that this is a jelly-type formula. It adds a softness that a creme doesn't have and makes it more wearable.

Elevation Polish Paris
Prune/purple medium density holographic.
I'm showing two coats below with top coat. With my pale skin, this reads quite dark on me. However, it's gorgeously vampy.

Elevation Polish East London
Blend of Ultra Chrome flake shimmer and holographic pigment in a clear base. 
I'm showing one coat below with top coat over both NYC and LA. The flakes lie flat and the base is thick enough that there aren't indents in the surface of the finish before top coat. I am so in love with this topper! It looks fabulous over all colors, I am currently wearing it over Iceberg Lake as I type this (future post) and photos don't come close to doing it justice. Inside, the ultra chrome flakes look fabulous while the holo comes out to play in the sun.

Also releasing in June is When the Cherry Met the Spoon! It was originally a Small Batch Prototype in February and I am so glad Lulu has added it to her core line. It is stunning! I do not have the original SBP, but Ida Nails It has a comparison HERE so check it out! 

Elevation Polish When the Cherry Met the Spoon
Berry red with sparse holographic pigment, ultra chrome flakes, and charcoal flake shimmer.
I'm showing two gorgeous coats below with top coat.
I had no issues with application and can't get over the way the flakes seem to glow from within this polish.

What do you think of the new Elevation Polish Street Graffiti Collection and When the Cherry Met the Spoon? Which are your favorites? I can see myself wearing LA and NYC as bases for nail art, and I've already mentioned that I want to wear East London over everything. When the Cherry Met the Spoon is glorious and Paris is a winner for summer outdoor fun. A fun fact, I live just outside of Melbourne, Florida, so I can pretend Melbourne is for my town instead of Australia, right? I don't think I can find any of this collection that I won't be grabbing to wear again so Lulu knocked it out of the park this month!

When the Cherry Met the Spoon and the Street Graffiti Collection will launch on June 7th, 2015 at 9PM Central. Don't forget that the AHF Charity Polish called Yeti's Healing Vibes to help with the Nepal earthquakes is still available on the Elevation Polish site and will be for at least 2 more months. $10 from each polish goes straight to the American Himalayan Foundation. I'll share swatches on that soon!

Thanks so much for reading!
