Collection: Wonderful Washington

Wonderful Washington Collection launching September 7th at 9PM, Central MN time, with additional restock on September 22nd at 9AM, Central MN time on Elevation Polish.

Hall of Mosses- Metallic green gold holographic. Thinner style formula. Color deepens and darkens with added coats. 1 coat is very natural, 2 coats little more holographic, 3 coats and the green color comes out more.

Located within the Hoh River Valley this short hike is both accessible and a perfect example of what makes the area so awe inspiring.

Hoh River Valley- Swamp Olive green crème/jelly with Ultra chrome flake shimmer in gold, green, blue. 2-3 coats for full coverage.

Set in the midst of a temperate rain forest this area can receive 14 feet of precipitation in a year, helping make it one of the greenest places we have ever been and the perfect inspiration for one of our greenest greens.

Mount Rose- Natural Mauve, light dusty purple. Platinum micro flake shimmer with a slight touch of holographic pigment. 2-3 coats for full coverage.

Mount Rose is the destination of a short but demanding hike (3500′, 6mi) and is where the Whiskey Jack birds kept photobombing as we tried to take product shots (much to our delight)! Check out our Instagram post from a couple of months ago.

The Royal Shaft- Royal blue crème/jelly hybrid. Shifting micro shimmer. Mostly looks like violet micro shimmer. Thinner style formula. 3 coats for full coverage.

This rocky spire overlooks the Royal Lake Basin plus… it looks as hilarious as it sounds, lol!

Unicorn Horn- Bright and Vivid blue linear holographic. Thinner style formula. 2-3 coats for full coverage. Light coats seem to do best.

Lower than the parking lot but still a 2000′ climb. Unicorn Horn and unicorn peak is an intimidating, harder than it looks hike and climb that brings you to a neat rock outcropping and an awesome view of both Port Angeles and the mountains of Canada across the Straight of San Juan du Fuca

Wonderful Washington is the inspiration for this month’s collection and we are especially excited about it! Washington state is one of our favorite places to visit and where many of our most memorable hikes, climbs, and adventures have been. However, as we started the process of color creation and making our final picks we realized that more than anything this collection was being inspired by the Olympic National Park/Forest and all the wonders that lie within. So with that in mind, we named all the polishes this month for places in the ONP and decided that we will have to save the rest of Washington for another time 🙂

We hope that everyone has been enjoying their summer as we begin the transition into fall!

Elevation Polish: Inside Look at Aurora

Color Base: Elevation Polish Aurora

Base Coat: Butter London Foundation Base Coat

Top Coat: No top coat

Notes: Pictured in a polish sandwich. Base Coat, Elevation Xixabangma, then top coat, then Aurora. Aurora is a Green gold based polish with flecks of green mirco glitter and gold & green flakies. It’s great for layering over green and black but also works by itself in 2 or more coats. It’s inspiration came to me when I was looking at trip photos of Aurora Mountain in B.C. Canada. The greenery that leads up to aurora mountain is amazing. The trees twinkling with the light bouncing off the mountains. It’s beautiful. Green, Gold, But dark in the shadows, then the light changes. The colors meld together then hints of bright green a rise from the shade.

Availability: This shade will be available as a limited edition. It will be on my website May 7th. Etsy & my website June 7th then after that it will be discontinued.

Other Colors: Diego Dalla Palma #68 Moka + Rainbow Honey Koi Pond

Color Base: Diego Dalla Palma #68 Moka

Color Top: Rainbow Honey Koi Pond

Base Coat: Butter London Foundation Base Coat

Top Coat: Seche Vite Quick Dry top coat

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.
