Elevation Polish El Cap Swatch and Review

Press Sample

Today I have a gorgeous Elevation Polish to show you!  Elevation Polish is inspired by the creators two passions – mountains climbing and nail polish.  El Cap is inspired from El Capitan!  Here is a little more about it from the Elevation Polish Website:

Inspiration: When you look at pictures of El Capitan. Blue with violet shimmer wouldn’t be most people’s thoughts. It’s slightly unexpected. Watching the movie that inspired the collection (180 degrees south) and going through some of my friends wife’s pictures of her climb of El cap. I noticed something. The sky is always bluer looking from the top and the way the the sun sets on that part of the world is beautiful. It has almost a violet cast to it. I knew I wanted to use that as my color inspiration.

Onto El Cap!  When I saw this bottle, I had to put it on.  El Cap glows!


El Cap is a bright vivid blue base packed with a ton of violet micro shimmer.  I only needed 2 coats for this photo and application was perfect.  It naturally dries down to an almost matte finish, but I added a glossy top coat for this photo.


Isn’t that phenomenal?  Being a purple lover, I am so thrilled to own this polish!  It just has that wow factor that I adore.

You can find Elevation Polish on the Elevation Polish Website as well as in Llarowe’s Shop


Elevation Polish Website:  $8.50

If you love purple, this is a must have!  The shimmer in it is breathtaking!  Flawless application and only required 2 coats.

This is a really stunning polish. It is a really unexpected combination, like you can’t figure out if it’s truly purple or blue. Gorgeous!

This is such a beautiful polish. I have always layered it under Elevation Polish Catch a Wave which is a beautiful combination. Now after seeing these swatches I am going to wear it on it’s own. Cosmetic Sanctuary always has such gorgeous swatches and honest reviews. Thank you!!
