Elevation Polish The Leaves and.....GIVEAWAY!!

Good afternoon! The winner for the Chaos & Crocs giveaway was picked and notified and my Pahlish giveaway is running until midnight tonight to enter that if you haven't already

OH I AM SO EXCITED FOR TODAY'S POST! When I opened my package containing The Leaves, this was totally my reaction:


I think you guys know that I love Elevation Polish, considering just how many Elevation Polish posts I have published within the last year. Lulu, the creative force behind Elevation, consistently surprises me and slays me all at once with every new collection release. Her polish's formulas are hands down some of the very best in the indie polish world. So yeah, there HAD to be a Elevation Polish for my 1 year blogiversary! 

If you were interested in purchasing some Elevation Polishes for yourself, look to her Big Cartel shop which she restocks on the 7th (at 9 PM CST) and 22nd (at 9 AM CST) of every month. A selection of Elevations can be purchased through Llarowe. Updates can be found on Elevation's blog. This October there will not be a regular restock scheduled, instead her 2nd Annual October Charity Event is going to happen. Details are forthcoming but so far we know that there will be Sales (Buy It Now) and Auction sections, including a full set of every Elevation Polish Lulu has released, totaling to about a 100 bottles! 

Elevation Polish The Leaves
Two coats
Very pale gold with super strong holographic pigment. 
The color is almost a champagne gold but a bit paler and cooler. And the holo is as strong as can be. 
To quote a friend: ASDJANSDKAJSDNKSDJNSKDJSAKDJSNAD.....I cannot quite tell just how much I adore this polish.

  5. I discovered Elevation Polish last year and I WISH I could afford to own all of them lol! But right now one of my favorites that I own is Toubkal. But I really WANT Xixabangma, Limestone and now this one! I have Marmolada on the way to me and I can't wait to try it!

  6. It's hard to pick just one of my many babies but Toubkal really rocks my boat.

  7. The only Elevation polish that I have is Marmolada and it's super pretty! I haven't worn it yet though but I can't wait.

  17. Congrats on your 1 year blogiversary! What a wonderful giveaway. :D I love Elevations too! My favorite is Marble Caves.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Oh man, that's a really hard question- I think my very favorites have been Echinops and Marble Caves!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Dykh-Tau of the Geo Duo is probably one of most beautiful teals I've ever seen!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Funny thing is, I have a ton of polishes- like hundreds and I do not own one Elevation. So, at this point I do not have a favorite

    ReplyDelete
  21. Too many to choose from but this could be one of them!! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  22. Way too many awesome Elevations to choose just one favorite!!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I love all Elevation polishes - but very close to the top would have to be Muztagh Ata. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Marmolada is my favourite, at the moment.

    ReplyDelete
  25. I like Echinops, Mount Cangyan, and Muztagh Ata, but I don't own any of them :( I don't own any Elevation Polishes for now!

    ReplyDelete
  26. I have no clue how to pick a favorite!!!!! I can't stop drooling over Epidote, Jengish Chokusu is the one I've worn the most often, Stay Behind Catch a Wave was my intro to circle glitter, Haba Xueshan was the one CtD glitter that I found to be different from the original enough to purchase it, Huangshan is one of the most unique polishes in my collection and every time I see Cilucia's swatch of Toubkal, I have to pull it out to wear it!!! How do I chooooooose??!?!

    Congrats on a year, dear! <3
