Collection: Life is a Beach

Life is a Beach launching November 7th at 9PM, Central MN time, with additional restock on November 22nd at 9AM, Central MN time on Elevation Polish.


Ipanema Beach- Light milkshake nude scattered holographic.Thinner style formula. thinner coats suggested to prevent streaks.

This beach is hard sometimes hard to see under the colorfully (yet scantily) dressed masses of people that covers this beach on a crowded day

 


Gulpiyuri Beach- Darkened Taupe Brown, shifting violet micro shimmer, Thinner style formula, 2-3 coats for full coverage.

Walk through a meadow to find this inland beach, surrounded by rocks and shrubs and soil, it is one of the strangest beaches we have seen and is definitely a place we would like to visit.


Miho Beach- Black with Aqua and Sapphire shimmer, Thicker style formula, 2 coats for full coverage. May require a second layer of top coat to smooth depending on how thick your layers are.

Black sands and snow-capped mountains make the blue water seem dark and yet it still glistens and sparkles with depth.

 


Phra Nang Beach- Aqua, aqua, teal, blue shimmer, scattered holographic. 2-3 coats for full coverage. first coat may be patchy. 2nd and/or 3rd coat evens out the color.

Bright blue waters and white sands surround and invite, while the old monoliths loom over this beach.

 


Bay of Fires- Dusty lilac, shifiting red/pink to gold shimmer. Black looking shimmer may attach to the sides of the bottle. Thinner style formula. 2-3 coats for full coverage.

As the colors of the morning sunrise recede, one notices that the bright colors of the rocks remain and they provide striking contrast.


River No. 2 Beach- Blueberry medium density holographic. Thinner style formula 2 coats for full coverage. Like most saturated blues, base coat is suggested.

Green foothills and meandering sands deposited from the make the blue waters of this beach pop and sparkle with life.

INSPIRATION:
We once heard an old saying, we think it went, life is a beach, then you dye your hair! Or something like that. This month’s collection is inspired by beautiful beaches from across the world! A day at the beach is always relaxing and reinvigorating for us. The power of the waves and sun, the fluidity of the sand, and the unmoving stability and solidity of the rocks, calms us and reminds us of the cycles of nature. Every beach has its own character and there are so many different kinds of beaches, red sands, black sands, some young, some old, some secluded, some crowded. The diversity and beauty of the beaches around the world made it hard to choose, but we hope you enjoy a few of our favorites!

Notes: Rainbow honey does it again. I’m normally not a glitter person although you won’t know that from all my blog posts. LOL Rainbow honey brings out the glitter lover in me. I got this one based on the name alone without even looking at what color it actually was. It showed up at my door in awesome rainbow honey super fast shipping style. I opened that box like there was candy inside. Love at first sight. It really does look like a koi pond. If you stare at it just right and blur the glitter you can almost see black, gold & copper orange koi swimming in a pond of blue, green, teal & silver waters. This glitter combo is amazing. I popped this on my current mani but I did some swatches over OPI dating a royal, Dior Nirvana & Deborah Lippmann Fade to black. They all looked gorgeous. There are so many different layering combos you could do with this color.
