Elevation Polish The Africa Collection

Provided for Review 
Hello! It seems like it's been forever since I last posted a new Elevation Polish collection but it's only been a couple of months. Well, after a break for September, Elevation is back and releasing The Africa Collection, a five piece set, with different finish and colors. October is also the month that Elevation has their annual charity auction and sale, here is the link to last year's info page, I am sure it will be updated very soon with information for this year's auction. 

Elevation Polish Darkest Safari 
Two coats
Dark green linear holo with green and gold shimmer.
Gorgeous, in and out of sunlight! The linear flame is a medium/high density.

Elevation Polish Devil's Cauldron
Two coats
Dark taupe creme with copper, gold, and bronze shimmer and micro-flakes.
Goodness, this is rich and perfect for fall. The shimmer is not-so-hidden and stands out boldly against the base.

Elevation Polish Mount Meru
Two coats
Golden honey creme with added holo pigment.
This is listed as a tan or peach color, depending on your skin tone, on Elevation's site. But for me, the first thought that came to mind was this was a honey colored creme. UGH I LOVE THIS SO SO MUCH. It's probably not going to be a color for everyone, but I think it would be a mistake to overlook it. It's got just enough holo pigment to add some nice shimmer but you won't see a prominent holo flame like in Darkest Safari.

Elevation Polish Table Mountain 
Two coats
Mauve light density holographic
Yeah I called it a mauve! That's not such a dirty word in the polish world, at least not to me. Not at all frosty or old fashioned looking but a very wearable dusty lilac. The holo is there but again, a lower density holo.

Elevation Polish Wagagai
Two coats
Vanilla creme with multi-colored shimmer.
This is what I would consider the warmer cousin of Weddell Sea. A bit thinner in formula than the others and it self levels well. Since it is thinner and with all that wonderful shimmer, you might want to apply two coats of topcoat, instead of being lazy like me and doing just one coat. Oh and wait a couple of minutes between coats to prevent dragging.
