Elevation Polish Marco Polo Collection (partial collection review)

Good evening again dears!  Man oh man I had a tiring weekend.  I could close my eyes and sleep for an entire day.  I am a packer - meaning I make plans that fill up the entire weekend.  How was your weekend?  Hopefully more relaxing than mine.  But I also got some posts ready to share with you!  So yay for being productive!  I want to share this one with you first because the release date for the new Marco Polo Collection from Elevation Polish is coming up soon.  Inspired by the Netflix series Marco Polo, this collection is full of rich tones and luxurious finishes.  You can purchase The Marco Polo Collection on 8/7 at 9pm CST!  I have 3 of the 7 polishes from the collection to share with you now - you can see the full collection at Ashley Is Polish Addicted and Adventures In Acetone.  I simply adored them all and I think you will too!  Let's delve in to the post, shall we?

Up first I have Zhenjin.  This is a "true burnished gold metallic medium density holo."  It's gorgeous. And it looks like liquid gold on my nails.  Zhenjin is very opaque and has a formula that was very easy to work with.  I think this posh would work for stamping too!  I'd only mention that if you over work the polish on your nails you might end up with visible brushstrokes.  I used 2 coats of Zhenjin and no topcoat.

Le Citta Invisibli is a "purple leaning taupe with ultra chrome flakies."  I also see some shimmer in there!  This is such a unique polish.  The color, the finish.  I have absolutely nothing like it and I am over the moon in love with it.  This base color is so beautiful and neutral.  The addition of the ultra chrome flakies is a perfect touch of flare - but not overwhelmingly so.  The formula and application were both perfect.  Smooth, buttery, creamy.  I used 2 coats of Le Citta Invisibli for full coverage and 1 layer of topcoat.

And finally there is Saif al Jabbar.  Yeah, this was my favorite.  It's absolutely stunning.  And have I mentioned how happy I am with all these earthy shades?  Well I am!  Saif al Jabbar has a "blackened base with red shift to gold shimmer and medium density holo."  This polish is so deep and dark, it's almost a purple-chocolatey shade.  It's definitely delicious!  That red shimmer - swoon!  The formula and application were both fabulous.  I used 2 coats of Saif al Jabbar and no topcoat.
