Elevation Polish Opal

This lovely polish isn't one you can buy (at least not right now), but I do want to share it! It's a prototype of a custom polish Lulu (Elevation Polish) was working on when I got into an online chat with her, and she very kindly sent me a bottle to try out! The polish is a mixture of grey, gunmetal and iridescent glitters in a white jelly base. There's quite a lot of glitter in the polish, so I used one coat of plain white as a base so I could avoid VNL without building up too much glitter on my nails. I absolutely love the effect - I hope Lulu brings this into production one day!

You can buy Lulu's polishes from her website Elevation Polish and keep up to date with new releases and other news on her BLOG too.


And finally, just for fun, after I'd worn this mani for several days, I added a coat of Butter London Disco Biscuit! Disco Biscuit is very sheer, and lends itself perfectly to jelly sandwiches so I thought it might work well as a colour glaze too. I love the result!

Elevation Polish Opal was a gift from the maker;  Butter London Disco Biscuit is a core BL colour and is readily available - I purchased my bottle from my local Boots.

  5. That opal polish is divine! Only one coat of DB? It doesn't seem so sheer layering it over another polish.

    1. I love it! And yes, just one coat of DB. I think somehow the pink is strong, even though it's pretty much transparent, if you know what I mean. It reminds me of watercolour paints in really strong colours.

  6. I had somehow totally missed out on Elevation Polish! Drooling over their website now. The concepts are so neat!
