Elevation Polish The Italian Collection

Hey everyone! I am so excited to show you guys Elevation Polish's newest collection. The Italian Collection will be released during the 7th of the month restock (9 pm CST) and it has a fantastic mix of creme, glitter, holos in a range of pretty colors. There is a limited edition polish as well that will be available this month, that is shown further in the post. 

Elevation Polish Antelao
Two coats
Dark purple creme
A cool toned purple, almost indigo in certain lighting. I love each of Elevation's cremes and this a great addition to my collection, as the formula is perfect. 



Elevation Polish Antelao Comparison
I wanted to compare Antelao with a couple other Elevation purples. Elevation Polish has released a number of purple polishes but I am only comparing Antelao against the straight cremes, Hovd Darkness and Pic du Gar. Hovd Darkness is darker and more red toned, Antelao looks very blue compared to it. Pic du Gar is obvious in it's difference of Antelao, it's brighter and again, more red in coloring. 


Elevation Polish Storms of Marmolada
Three coats
Dark gray creme/jelly base with silver, light purple, and aqua glitter
A darker, moody version of the original Marmolada. No fishing for the larger glitters but it is a little thick so thin coats are best.  



Elevation Polish Marmolada Comparison
Another comparison, this time Storms of Marmolada against the original Marmolada. The glitter is each polish is mostly the same, though Storms has more glitter throughout. The formula for the original Marmolada is more thin and blue, whereas the base color for Storms is completely different and more thick.


 Elevation Polish Ortler
Two coats
Berry pink low density holographic creme
What a gorgeous and rich color! It is just shy of being a hot neon pink but not quite there. Still, a very bright and fresh color. The holo effect is not super bold but it adds some depth and sparkle to the polish.

 Elevation Polish Tre Cime di Lavaredo
Two coats
Pale gold linear medium density holo with gold micro-flakes and green flash
How can I even properly tell you how amazing this polish is?? It is absolutely stunning in real life, I don't think my photos quite capture how beautiful it is, though I really try. Gold is a tricky color to put out, it can go brassy very quickly and it's not a color that everyone can pull off or even like. But I think that since Tre Cime di Lavaredo is more pale in coloring, it will be complimentary on a variety of skin tones. I highly recommend putting this in you cart when doing your Elevation order.

Elevation Polish Con Tanto Affetto, Yeti
Layered over Elevation Polish Antelao
Clear based topper of black, white, ice blue, glacier, and teal glitter and added holo pigment.
Oh Yeti! You have returned for August, and with much affection. I love to see black and white polishes and the glitter in this is dreamy. I especially like the dash of holo, it's enough to give the polish interest without being overpowering. 

As with previous Yeti inspired polish, Con Tanto Affetto, Yeti is a limited edition for the month of August.

Layered over Elevation Polish Mount McKinley 
Though you lose the holo somewhat when layering over a lighter color, I feel like this pairing is seriously pretty. Get this! And then do this!



 This collection will be released on August 7th at 9pm 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
