I admit I have a small polish problem, but when it comes to purple polish, I go crazy. Elevation Polish Rue Manin was no exception.
The formula for Elevation Polish Rue Manin is not quite sheer, but not quite crelly, either. It’s a deep lavender, despite me calling this purple. There are small and medium-sized purple glitters in the polish. While it’s not a glitter heavy polish like some Indies I’ve featured, this has a small enough smattering to break up the crelly-ness of the base color.
Much as I really like this color and the finished product, it was a bit hard to work with. Formula was slightly runny and tended to want to pool at my cuticle. It made clean-up a bit of a pain. Elevation Polish Rue Manin was a bit of a slow drying formula as well. I had to do four coats to get it to the saturation I wanted. I was pleased with the end result, but am unsure of if I would wear this anytime soon.

What do you think? Does this color entice you?
Someone asked me why I don’t use a light box – I’ll be honest: I don’t think light boxes truly reflect what a color is like in real life. While I think a light box can get you prettier, edgier shots of a polish, I don’t think it’s very realistic. So while my images may not be as richly saturated with jewel tones or deep hues, you are getting a real-life look at the polish in action.
