Kochia Hill- Bright Red with a slight blue cast, medium density holographic. 2 coats for full coverage.

The bright and cheery reds of the Kochia bush fill the fields of Hitachi Seaside Park, accented by cosmos they turn 153 hectacres of park into a red wonderland every autumn.


Kenrokuen- Dark Black cherry metallic medium density holographic, thicker style formula. 2 coats for full coverage.

One of the three greatest gardens in Japan, Kenrokuen contains the six ideal aspects of a Japanese garden: spaciousness, serenity, venerability, scenic views, subtle design, and coolness.

This wisteria garden features tunnels, trellises, domes, and ancient trees. Purple wisteria flowers flow and drape over the paths as you walk the park and are immersed in the fragrance.


Thousands of Pink Blooms- Medium saturated pink, medium to low density holographic, butter style formula.

A true modern day love story, Thousand of Pink Blooms is an homage to a dairy farmer. When his wife of 30 years lost her eyesight due to disease, she went into a cycle of increasing depression and reclusion. To help counter the isolation, the husband decided to create a garden so beautiful and so full of pink blooms that it would attract visitors to keep her company. It is such a success that over 7000 people visit their gardens each year, both to see the blooms and to catch a glimpse of the love that inspired it.


Kinkakuji Golden Pavilion- Golden metallic, gold flake shimmer, gold micro flake shimmer, gold shimmer, gold micro shimmer, gold to bronze shifting micro shimmer (no visible shift really), medium density holographic.

This gold leafed Zen temple was built to illustrate the harmony between heaven and earth. The golden roofed pavilion reflects off of the pond that surrounds it, while each level represents a different architectural style, shodden, samurai, and zen.

INSPIRATION:
This months collection is all about love and blooms from Japan. Pinks and reds, purples and golds, the flowers, blooms, trees, and landscapes of these Japanese gardens and parks inspire love and are perfect destinations for a romantic stroll. We hope you enjoy “Love from Japan”.

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. 🙂

COLLECTION INSPIRATION

Summer is the unofficial start to road tripping season and this month’s collection is inspired by the roads so epic that they are adventures and destinations all by themselves. Looking over our archive we noticed that our less traveled roads were pinks and purples. So in this collection we thought it only fitting we explore those colors and try to make the polishes as unique and adventurous as the roads that inspired them.
