Elevation Polish has done it again and released another stunning collection - the Darkness Collection. Six amazing polishes will be available Dec. 7, 2014. She seems to be consistently outdoing herself with each collection. I am so excited to have the opportunity to share these with you.

Let's take a look.

I will start with the non-collection polish.




The Kek (also known as Kekekabic) is a soft holographic olive/khaki shade that shifts to a pinkish purple shade. The pink shift adds an amazing depth and glow. This polish applies oh-so-easy. The Kekekabic Trail, is also known as "The Kek." It is a hiking trail that runs about 41 miles near Ely, Minnesota. Forty-one miles? I think I will just enjoy the polish instead. This is two coats with a top coat.

There wasn't much sun out when I swatched these. But here it is with the tiny bit of sun that was peeking from the clouds.

Now let's move on to the Darkness Collection. 
 
Darkness of the Arctic 2 is a near black polish with a strong brown tendency. It has gold, bronze and copper shimmer. The shimmer is perfect. The flakes and shimmer are subtle, yet add a stunning optical illusion. It dries perfectly smooth. This is two coats with a top coat.

Lost in the Darkness 2 is a dark forest green holographic polish with soft gold micro shimmer. I think this may be my favorite from the collection. Although I keep changing my mind. This deep scattered holographic polish shines bright in any light. This is two coats with a top coat.

Queen of the Night is a dark blackened purple creme. It almost appears black in low lighting. But the true purple shade of this polish refuses to remain hidden. Add a little light and the purple comes to life. It applies amazingly well. This is two coats with no top coat.
