Elevation Polish is releasing the Naughty by Nature Collection on November 7th and I have the full 6 piece collection on the blog today to show you!
The big change to this collection – these are all water based polishes! There are many advantages to water based polishes and I will go over a few of them at the bottom of the post! Let’s take a look at this gorgeous collection first
Volcanic Dust is a glossy brick red creme. I used 2 coats for this photo and the formula and application are absolutely PERFECT. I already know I will be using this beauty a lot in the coming months, both on it’s own and as a base color for glitter top coats.
Naked Night Sky
Naked Night Sky is a light chocolate brown jelly base with dusty blue hex glitters, silver hex and square glitter, and mint circle glitter suspended within. I used 3 coats for this photo.
Forest of the Fog
Forest of the Fog is a dark blue jelly base with blue and violet micro shimmer and flakes. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Pitaraq is a lovely shimmer packed clear base with ice blue, silver and white shimmer and micro flakes mixed in. I used 1 coat over Forest of the Fog.
Darkest Storm is the holographic beauty of the collection. Darkest Storm is a deep blue linear holographic. I used 2 coats for this photo.
You get a decent holo effect in normal lighting as shown above. Below is under artificial lighting to show the effect better. Also – the label says Darkest Night, but it’s actually Darkest Storm :)
Black Ice is one of my favorites from the collection and the only matte within the collection. Black Ice is a matte black base packed with silver shimmer and a dash of blue and violet shimmer as well. The silver shimmer is definitely the star of the shimmer, but I adore the flashes of blue and violet when the lighting hits just right!
I love the different shades within this collection, they are different enough from each other to justify needing all of them!
Now to go back to these being water based (which I wasn’t told until after I tried them by the way!) there are benefits to using water based. Basically when a polish is water based the chemical solvents are replaced by water, so when it evaporates into the air – there are no toxic fumes being inhaled. You can still use normal nail polish remover with it – both acetone and non acetone but there are also other methods to use. Water based polishes are also less likely to stain your nails (which I know many of you will love!). Elevation Polish may not make all future polishes water based, but I am happy to see she did so with this collection. I couldn’t tell the difference application wise and wouldn’t have known they were water based until she told me, so rest assured – the quality of these polishes were not compromised in comparison to her past creations by going water based.
Price: 8.50 Each
Release Date: November 7th, 2013
