INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this month’s collection is East Africa!

East Africa is a place of transitions, sea to sand, sand to wetlands, wetlands to grasslands, and grasslands to deserts. So this month we went a little less sparkly and a little more shimmery and shifty, focusing on transitions, the transitions of night to day, day to night, and from one biome to the next.

We hope you enjoy the collection!

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this month’s collection is The Pacific Crest Trail!

It is considered one of the Triple Crowns of Hiking and is the thru-hike we most want to accomplish. The trail passes through Washington, Oregon, and California as it winds over 2600 miles from Canada to Mexico, with elevation changes of 420,000 feet! Backpacking trips to the North Cascade National Park was our first exposure to the trail and the book/movie Wild only further peaked our interest.

The polishes this month are inspired by and named after some of the trail sections and landmarks that we most look forward to experiencing and are some of the most wild places left in the West.

We hope you enjoy the collection!

Happy 2018!!! The inspiration for this month’s collection is The Great North!

As we slowly add more daylight back to our lives we thought it fitting that we explore the bright and cheery side of The Great North! Fire and Ice, warm and cool, each polish this month is inspired by the northern most point of the continents (minus Antarctica).

The warm colors of Punta Gallinas, Ichkeul, and Mussau Islands were inspired by the sandy beaches and warm climes of South America, Africa, and Australia. While Cape Columbia, Cape Fligely, and Rossøya were inspired by the bright, but frigid and stark beauty of the Arctic Circle.

We hope you enjoy the collection!

The inspiration for this month’s collection is Jewels of the Nile!

The Nile River is one of the longest rivers in the world and a cradle of life for the people and wildlife it touches. Stretching from Lake Victoria to the Mediterranean Sea, it provides life and color to otherwise hot and arid land. The Nile is home to ancient wetlands so dense they stopped Roman armies, ancient civilizations of impressive wealth, waterfalls of immense size, and fabled mountains once thought to be the source of the headwaters.

We started with the blues and greens of the river and deltas and expanded to the purples, periwinkles, and reds of land and civilizations that it touches. We hope you enjoy the collection!

New Zealand is one of the most remote places on earth, surrounded by so much water that it is considered the center of the water hemisphere! This remoteness has resulted in spectacularly unique species of plants and animals. The geography of the islands is equally unique and spectacular with a plethora of mountains, glaciers, forests, volcanoes, and beaches.

We were inspired by these stunning contrasts between seas and mountain tops, volcanoes and glaciers all mixing to create this wonderfully diverse country! We hope you enjoy the collection!

Night time in the mountains can be magical. Clear skies free from the lights and pollutions of civilization offer incredible views of the stars, the galaxy, and if you’re lucky, perhaps even a meteor shower or an auroral display!

So we started with revisiting a few old favorites and made them a little darker, a little more moody, and more sparkly. Then we created a few more colors that we hope capture the mood of a clear night on the far edge of civilization. We hope you enjoy the collection!

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this month’s collection is Sonoran Cacti! Last year when we released the Desert Desserts Collection we were bummed we couldn’t make room for the Sonoran Desert and swore we would revisit it. The Sonoran Desert teems with life found nowhere else and we were especially enthralled by all the varieties of cacti and all their different forms, big and small. We hope you enjoy the collection!
