Apostle Ice Caves– Grey holographic, shifting blue purple micro flake shimmer, teal micro shimmer, 2 coats may have visible nail line, 3 coats for full coverage. 

After a long walk on the clear lake ice, shimmering caves, icicles, and icy chandeliers are truly a sight to behold. at least when the lake ice is strong enough to get you there.

Canadian Shield– Clay Grey Creme, thinner style formula, 3 coats for even full coverage. First coat will look patchy, 2nd coat evens out the color. 

This ancient bedrock is one of the largest and oldest geologic features (2.5 – 4 Billion years) and lies under much of Minnesota. Up North it has been exposed by glaciers and the ice smoothed hills and valleys now make up much of the Boundry Waters.

Mount Katahdin–  Dark Wine Red, Red Micro shimmer which gives this polish a semi-metallic finish. Thinner style formula. 3 coats for full coverage. 

This nearly mile high mountain is the highest point in Maine and is the ultimate goal of those going NoBo on the Appalachian Trail.

North Shore Drives– Copper/Bronze/Red Bronze, micro shimmer, shimmer and flake shimmer topper. Adds a nice coppery twinkle to your favorite polishes. If worn over pastels or white you may notice a slight coppery haze to the base. 

Heading up North in the autumn and driving along Lake Superior is a Minnesota tradition.  The changing colors of the leaves seem even more magnificent on this scenic lake shore route.

Siskiyou Wilderness–  Dark Grape Purple, Blueberry Micro shimmer which gives this polish a hazy blue glow. Thinner style formula. 3 coats for full coverage. 

OK, maybe not truly north but located in Northern California, this area is as wild and remote as California can get.  It is home to dense brush, lilies, lilies, and more lilies, old growth forests, wolverines, and maybe Bigfoot?   Well maybe not but it is home to a portion of the Bigfoot Trail.

LE: Yeti’s Ghostly Adventures– Deep Ghostly Dark/Blackened Teal, Blue shimmer, scattered holographic, Thicker style formula.

Inspiration:

The inspiration for this month’s collection is Up North!  Regardless of season, going up North is one our favorite activities, but in the autumn Up North is Magical!!!  Crisp cool air, frosty coatings lingering on foggy fall mornings, and the changing of the leaves makes for memorable getaways.  There were lots of northern destinations to chose from but we hope you enjoy a few of our favorite Up Norths!

INSPIRATION:
Colorado is the official home away from home for elevation polish. We have spent lots of time exploring, wandering, hiking, skiing, and spending time with family in colorado. The collection is a reflection of the familiar (represented by turquoise), adventures yet to be had (represented by red/pink), Love, Happiness, Zen (represented by Grey/White/Brown)

Blackout Street Fox, the name seemingly doesn’t fit into the collection. However, this polish name comes with a story. I’ll keep it short. Wandering the streets of Breckenridge, Co the power went out in the whole city. As a friend and I continued to wander the city, the streets empty, quiet and dark, a lone fox wandered along the middle of the street. There was something so profound about watching this fox stroll down the middle of the main street there in breckenridge. Almost like he wanted to reclaim or announce that just beyond the tourist trap shop lined streets this area was his.

We hope you enjoy our homage to the amazing state of Colorado. 🙂
