Nothing to Disclose
My dearest readers! I’m so delighted to be able to share these two polishes with you! One is a super versatile holographic flakie topper and the other is a beautiful linear holo! I bet you would just like me to get right onto the review…but are you sure you don’t want to chat a bit about the weather or work or…ok ok ok! Polish it is!
First up let’s start with that super versatile topper I mentioned. Aguja St. Exupery:
For this swatch I paired Aguja St. Exupery with LynBDesigns – Happy Wallabies (a pale pink with white flakies. Happy Wallabies did stain my nails bright red so if you have this polish and haven’t used it yet please be aware. It is discontinued). Aguja St. Exupery gives not only that linear holo effect that is so well loved in the indie polish community but also is packed with a golden shimmer and taupe flakies.
In this picture you can see the flakies and shimmer but not as much of the holo. Trust me though it may be shy on camera you get this topper out into the sunlight and it is as effervescent and outgoing as you could want! Picture shows ONE coat over undies.
I was playing around with my swatch wheel and some blues and an off-white with this topper and look at how nifty it looks on other colors! I don’t remember which polishes I used here, I believe it’s a Wet n’ Wild and the blues are Julep polishes.
Polishes used: Glisten & Glow – Stuck on Blu; LynBDesigns – Happy Wallabies; Elevation Polish – Aguja St. Exupery; Glisten & Glow – HK Girl Topcoat
Next up is my favorite holo of all time. Anyone who knows me KNOWS that I have a passion for blue polishes. Specifically dark teal-leaning navy blues. Without further set up let’s just get on to the awesome. Here’s Darkest Storm:
Oh.Em.Gee. I am so in love with this polish and I’m not even a huge holo fan (*gasp* I know, but I’m such a sucker for the glitter!) This polish is just AH-mazing! (The accent nail is a prototype of an upcoming polish, it has been tweaked for final release so it will look slightly different from this picture, I will have pics of the final polish as well).
Just look at that beautiful holo!! This pic shows two coats to full opacity. The formula is really nice and didn’t give me any troubles at all. It’s highly pigmented without being crazy thick or hard to work with!

These two polishes were some of my first from Elevation. I have been so impressed with the formulas and the colors thus far. I think I’m a convert and I have already started stacking up my collection with a few discontinued ones. Trust me though as I get more that are still available I’ll be sharing them with you! Elevation restocks twice per month (the 7th and 22nd) and you can find out all about it at their website as well as keep up to date on all the news!
