Elevation Polish The Sea Collection and Yeti's Oceanside Vacation

Hey everyone! I know I won't be able to post for the next couple of days so y'all get a rare Sunday post, specifically of Elevation Polish's The Sea Collection. This collection is full of cool toned polishes all inspired by the beauty of worldwide seas. This month also includes a reformulation of a highly sought after SBP, The Med. And as if that wasn't enough, there is also limited edition for June, Yeti's Oceanside Vacation. On to swatches!

Elevation Polish Bohai Sea
Two coats 
Bright ocean blue medium density holographic
Mmmm, right out of the gate, an awesome gorgeous blue holo. You could get away with one coat but my habit is use two so that's what I did. 

Elevation Polish Weddell Sea 
Two coats 
Off white creme with white and silver shimmer and light holo density
I LOVE Elevation Polish's white polishes. Each one is never just a plain white but with a little extra thrown in. This one is going to be streaky with the first coat but self levels easily with a second coat. The holo effect is not the spotlight but an added dimension. I did include a direct sunlight photo though. 

Elevation Polish Ceram Sea
Two coats 
Green leaning turquoise creme
Lulu is the mother flipping BOSS when it comes to creme polishes and I am so glad to have one in this color. 

Elevation Polish Thracian Sea 
Two coats 
Slate gray creme with purple undertones
More creme perfection, be still my heart. As I am with pink, I can be very picky about gray polishes, I don't usually like them. But of course, Elevation can create a gray that I adore.

Elevation Polish The Med 2
Two coats 
Teal with green and color shifting gold/green shimmer
The Med created a lot of hype and I know fans were clamoring to have it make a come back. While I don't have the original to compare to, I can tell you that this is not a pure blue but teal which is going to to be the major difference. The shimmer is just outstanding.

Clear based topper of teal, periwinkle, pale blue, off white, taupe varied glitter.
Yeti has been hiding away lately and we learn it's because he has been enjoying himself ocean-side. Beautiful oceanic glitter topper! I can practically hear the waves and seagulls chirping. 
I applied Yeti's Oceanside Vacation over a few polishes to give you some different looks.

  1. Love 'em all Ida!! And love that you show the purple undertones in Thracian Sea so well. I could see where that could have not been so easy!!

    1. Oh thank you Lauri! It was no harder then taking the other photos. If anything, it's the holos that give me stress, I haunt the weather report for sun lately.

  2. Ahhhhh!!! Gorgeous! Thanks so much for the awesome review and pics!
