Elevation Polish – Rapa Nui

Today I have another polish from Elevation Polish called Rapa Nui.  This is part of a blog sale haul you can see a pic of here, and I am really enjoying it.  The polishes from Elevation that I have tried thus far are great to work with and have amazing color.

I’m back with Elevation Polish’s Toubkal :)

Hello, all!  Sorry to have let my life outside of my nail polish addiction cut into my blogging time for as long as I did.  Work, school, and family medical issues have taken a lot of my time, as I am sure most of you can relate to.  I have been painting photographing and occasionally browsing blogs, but just haven’t had the time to blog myself.  I will make a sincere effort to share more consistently in the future. *crossing heart*  Now on to today’s polish.

Today’s polish is one that I purchased through a blog sale at Fingers Polish ManiaHere is a link to her sale page, in case you want to take a peek.  If anyone is interested, it was a speedy and pleasant experience buying this polish and I will certainly keep browsing her page for goodies :). Elevation’s polishes are so beautiful and I had been wanting to try them for some time.  When I found a bunch of them for sale, I had to snatch them up! Along with Toubkal, I managed to get a hold of Aurora, Broad Peak, Elbrus, Rapa Nui and Ubsunur.  These are not on the blog outside the group shot of my haul below YET, but will be eventually. 😀

Blog sale bargains!

Toubkal from Elevation Polish is a burgundy jelly polish that is just packed with golden flakies and microglitter.  My photographs really don’t do this polish justice, but you can definitely get an idea of how packed full of golden glow this polish is.  These photos show two coats of polish with base and top coat, and clearly this polish offers smooth application and full coverage.  AND without having to put on a third coat, yay!  I think that with the right pale or pastel base color, this one might even work well as a topcoat. I will have to play with that one and see what I can come up with.  Who else has this polish and what do you think of it?
