Elevation Polish: Naughty by Nature Collection
Hello everyone! Today I have the gorgeous new polishes from Elevation Polish to show you all! The Naughty by Nature collection was just released on Thursday. I *really* wanted to have this post up on release day- but the universe had other plans! My family was super sick the whole week- and by the end of the week of taking care of them, I was down for the count too. But better a little late than never!
There are 6 BEAUTIFUL colors in this collection- and the exciting part is that they’re all water based! I don’t know about you guys, but my experiences with water based polishes in the past haven’t been that great (though they’ve also been limited). I could barely tell a difference between these polishes and other Elevations! I did notice that all 6 got a bit thick when exposed to air more quickly than my ‘normal’ polish does, and a few were thicker in general. I probably will add a few drops of thinner later (I did not for photos). That’s more of a personal preference- as you can see from the pictures, they all apply wonderfully! I could barely smell a polish smell at all (it was very subtle), and the dry time was just fine. Lulu has really impressed me with these- and that’s just the formula, not the beautiful colors!
First is Forest of the Fog- a beautiful teal jelly polish filled with blue and purple shimmer.
This polish is so pretty! I really love the purple shimmer with the teal base- it’s a fun combination. The shimmer is definitely a little shy- it’s noticeable, but it’s not super in-your-face and instead is more subtle. These photos are outside in the sunshine, which is why it’s cooperating! Inside, you have more of a dark teal jelly polish. Photos show 2 coats with no topcoat.
Then I topped Forest of the Fog with Pitaraq, a gorgeous flake topcoat!
After years of being a polishaholic- my love for flakies of all types has never diminished. So of course, this is one of my favorites of the collection! Pitaraq is a fun topper filled with white, silver, and blue flakies and blue microshimmer! This polish will be PERFECT for the winter months coming up- it feels like I just spread frost over my nails! This is 1 coat (no topcoat) over Forest of the Fog.
Next is a wonderful red cream, Volcanic Dust!
This polish really surprised me and was another favorite in the collection. I’m normally not a fan of creams- I have a good amount of them, but I rarely get excited for them. But Volcanic Dust looked great on, and applied great! Pictures show 2 coats with no topcoat.
Ah, and now for my favorite of the collection- Darkest Storm, a beautiful dark blue holographic stunner!
Darkest Storm is a very dark, almost midnight blue holographic polish. Because of the darker shade, the holographic effect is blinding outside in the sun! Photos show 2 coats with no topcoat.
Next is Black Ice, a charcoal polish filled with lots of shimmer!
Black Ice dries to a velvet matte finish on it’s own. I ADORE how it looks with topcoat on top though! This beauty sparkled so much in the sun that it almost looks holographic. But it’s not! It’s filled with a silver and white shimmer that is always visible, and also with multicolored shimmer that comes alive with topcoat. This polish applied like a DREAM- I didn’t have to do any cleanup at all! Photos are 2 coats with topcoat.
Last but not least is Naked Night Sky, a brown jelly polish accented with aqua and blue glitters!
I actually ended up liking this polish a bit more than I had anticipated- unlike Lulu, the creator, I don’t love brown nail polish (her blog is http://lovebrownnailpolish.wordpress.com/ lol). But I did really like this! On her store listing, Lulu advises to wait for each coat to dry before applying the next one, and I would agree with this completely. This polish is actually the only one that gave me a bit of trouble, and it was because I was initially not following that advice, and the second coat would pull and ruin the first coat. Once I waited, I had no more issues. Photos are 2 thick coats plus topcoat.
And there you have it, the Naughty by Nature collection! As I said earlier, these polishes were released on Thursday- Darkest Storm is sold out for now, but the rest are still available! Elevation Polish restocks on the 7th and 22nd of the month, so Darkest Storm will be available again then. The collection is also going to be launched at Llarowe.com, though I don’t believe the restock date has been announced yet.

Found you while searching for help!! Am up to my 3rd gel mani and I love, love them!! They last wofrldnuley well and stay shiny but, I can’t get this one off! My first lifted a bit after 10 days; I peeled it off, the second was professionally removed after 2 weeks for a color change during a vacation. The tech at the spa on the cruise ship applied a polish line I never heard of it has worn like iron, but it is now 4 weeks old..I have soaked pads in acetone, wrapped each nail in foil..and waited and waited, for nothing!! Tried soaking finger tips in acetone, 30 min nothing. If it even softened, I would have tried scrping, or filing..I could get someone to take me to the salon, as I don’t drive, but that isn’t something I can count on I need to do this at home PLEASE HELP thank you
