Elevation Polish The Patagonia Collection

Happy Friday! I have Elevation Polish's newest collection, The Patagonia Collection, just in time for tonight's Febuary 7th restock. I loooooooved this collection, the cremes applied perfectly (the norm at this point for Elevation), we got a shimmer that is dark and mysterious, and a holo topper that is unlike any other holo polish in my collection. It's a collection like The Patagonia Collection that reinforces my loyalty to Elevation Polish. You can pick these up for yourself tonight at 9 pm CST in Elevation's shop

Elevation Polish Cuernos del Paine
Two coats
Pale mint creme
This is a bright mint, very light and crisp looking. I am a sucker for this type of color and this one is a great addition to my mint polish collection. The brightness of the color though makes it unique, most of my other mint polishes look dull compared to Cuernos del Paine. 


Elevation Polish Tronador
Two coats
Dark grape purple jelly with pink and gold flake shimmer
This is a little thick formula-wise but not problematic. You could get away with one coat, it's that saturated but I prefer to apply two. It is very dark and the shimmer, while not hidden, comes alive in the right lighting. And the name, Tronador, it just rrrrrrrrrrolls off the tongue, don't you think?


Elevation Polish Cerro Torre 2
Two coats
Nude creme
Cerro Torre was originally released Feburary 2012 but was retired. Cerro is one of my absolute favorite nude polishes, and I was very sad to see it retired. But this reformulated version is even better, at least formula wise. It applies like most of Elevation's cremes, oh so well, and is just so pretty in it's neutral-ness. I loved the original Cerro just so much and absolutely adore Cerro Torre 2. Do you need both? Probably not, but I do. 


Comparison of Elevation Polish Cerro Torre and Cerro Torre 2
Original Cerro Torre is on my middle and pinkie finger and new Cerro Torre 2 is on my index and ring finger.
As you can see, there is a slight difference in coloring, Cerro 2 is a tad more cool and lighter, original Cerro leans more yellow. Original Cerro has a thinner formula so I was able to get full coverage in three coats but with Cerro 2 I only applied two coats, the formula is smoother and more opaque.


Elevation Polish Aguja St. Exupery 
Layered over Elevation Polish Cerro Torre 2
Topper that has pink, gold, and charcoal flake shimmer and lots of holographic pigment. 
It is such a versatile holo topper, I applied this so many polishes since receiving it and it looked good over each one. The flakes though, they really are showcased over a pale color like Cerro Torre 2. 

*note* I was not able to get get a direct sunlight photo of Aguja to show off it's holo-ness. The time of the year, it's very hit or miss with the sun, and this last week, it has been miss. Ashley from Ashley is Polish Addicted was able to get some sun shots of Aguja, so make sure to see her post

Layered over Elevation Polish Tronador
Goodness gracious, Aguja is stunning over Tronador, this is where the holo pigment stands out most. 


Elevation Polish Aguja St. Exupery 
Layered over Elevation Polish Alpine Heights
And for my final look, I applied Aguja over Alpine Heights. The dark green base is so very pretty under Aguja, the gold flakes pop against it. 


This collection will become available tonight, Friday, Febuary 7th at 9 pm CST in Elevation Polish's shop. Make sure to check out Elevation's blog and Instagram for updates. Llarowe carries select Elevation Polish's as well and those can be found here
