Review | e.l.f. Nail Polish in Meadow Mist, Raspberry Sorbet, High Tide & Mambo Mauve

It’s not a secret that I like e.l.f. make-up, but e.l.f. nail polish was something that I hadn’t tried yet. I say hadn’t, because earlier this month that changed, and today I’m telling you all about it!

I tried the e.l.f. Nail Polish in four new colors: Meadow Mist (taupe gray), Raspberry Sorbet (dark raspberry pink), High Tide (petroleum blue) and Mambo Mauve (plummy mauve). e.l.f. recently changed the formula of the e.l.f. Nail Polish and improved it so that the color now lasts even longer, and the formula doesn’t contain any tuolene, formaldehyde or dibutyl phthalate and is enriched with vitamin E. So that means that the new and improved e.l.f. Nail Polish ensures long-lasting color and healthy nails, woop woop!

The e.l.f. Nail Polish comes in a lovely sleek glass bottle that I really dig. The brush is very practical and the hairs are quite flexible which helps with the application. The only problem I have is with the cap. On two of the four bottles I need to twist the cap a lot further than it is supposed to go to make sure the bottle is sealed, and as a result of that the bottle and the cap aren’t nicely aligned anymore. For someone like me who’s slightly obsessed with order and symmetry that’s definitely a bit of an eye sore.

The coverage of the nail polish is really great and two coats are more than enough for a perfectly opaque result. And the longevity of the nail polish is okay as well, or at least for as far as I can tell. I’m not allowed to wear nail polish at work (major boo) but the e.l.f. Nail Polish easily makes it through the weekend without any chipping and with just very slight tip wear.

And the colors? They’re pretty cute. Elegant yet trendy. Not flashy but definitely not boring either. All four colors have a nice glossy finish, but I think Meadow Mist and High Tide also look great with a matte top coat. What do you think?

The e.l.f. Nail Polish in Meadow Mist, Raspberry Sorbet, High Tide and Mambo Mauve are available in the e.l.f. online store for 2.50 euro each.

Do you have any e.l.f. Nail Polish? Which of these four colors do you like best?


  1. Wauw, wat een prachtige kleuren. De tweede en derde zijn mijn favoriet! Zelf heb ik nog nooit cosmetica van ELF gehad, maar wil er snel ook eens producten van aanschaffen!

  8. Een jaar of zo geleden heb ik eens een nagellaksetje van E.L.F. gekocht, maar ik was toen niet tevreden over de dekking en houdbaarheid. Het ziet er wel naar uit dat dit verbeterd is en de kleurtjes zijn ook mooi :-)

  49. Meadow mist has to be my favourite, loving the matte finish.

    It’s the shame that the cap doesn’t fit properly, I hate that as well where you have to keep twisting and twisting for god knows how long
