So, my dear readers, time for my weekly Elevation Polish post!!! This week I have Mount Cangyan for you. Let's do some education before we start ogling nails: Mount Cangyan is in the Northwestern part of China and means Green Cliff Mountain. It is part of a scenic natural mountain area with man-made structures (quoted from Wikipedia). The Fortune Celebration Temple is the most famous building on Mount Cangyan and was build during the Sui Dynasty (518-618 AD).
Enough of the school stuff and on to polish and pictures. Mount Cangyan is a purple based cruelly infused with golden and magenta shimmer.

I applied three coats of Mount Cangyan over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. Mount Cangyan is a crelly - this says the most about its formula, right? But we have come across plenty of variations of crellies right? Mount Cangyan has a perfect formula though, while crelliesh sheer the consistency is not thin or runny and application is flawless. For me it worked best painting three thin coats and wait a couple of minutes in between coats to prevent dragging. As with my other Elevation Polishes dry time was not fast but still totally within normal range.
Final thoughts: another elegant shade from Elevation Polish. It has a nearly regal flair with the golden and magenta shimmer floating in the purple base.
I ordered Elevation Polish Mount Cangyan from their own website here.
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
