Sephora + Pantone Universe Elemental Energy Lacquer - Blue Turquoise

Sephora + Pantone Universe have teamed up again to bring us the new Elemental Energy Collection. This collection is inspired by the four elements (earth, air, wind, and fire), and today I have the Earthy Chrome polish shade to share with you. Sephora + Pantone Universe's Elemental Energy Lacquer in Blue Turquoise* ($12 CAD) appears to be a beautiful purple-green chrome polish in the bottle.


"A variety of nail polishes to create multiple decadent looks inspired by the four elements. Unleash the force of the four elements and adorn your nails with these high-impact lacquers in four dimensional effects: earthly chrome, watery shimmer, airy sparkle, and fiery glitter. These unique colors and finishes can be combined to create unique nail designs." - Sephora



When I first saw this polish in the bottle, I was very intrigued! This polish is a beautiful purple-green chrome polish, but unfortunately the formula was fairly thin. I used four coats to get an opaque finish, which was a bit disappointing. This polish is still really pretty and unique, but I do wish that it was more pigmented. Blue Turquoise has a beautiful duochrome finish to it, which really is quite pretty. This polish dried very quickly, even though I had to use so many coats. I've found that this line of polish is very quick-drying, even though it's not marketed as such. 


Sephora does suggest that the polishes in this Elemental Energy line are great for layering, so I need to try this out as a duochrome top coat. If you have any suggestions as to which polish to layer Blue Turquoise over, please let me know in a comment! Will you be picking up any of Sephora + Pantone Universe's Elemental Energy Lacquers? 


  1. I love duochrome makeup because it looks so sophisticated and complex! I really like this color! As for the sheerness, I find that when I layer a white polish under my sheer polishes it makes the color seem brighter and much more pigmented.

    1. I love duochrome too, it's so interesting to look at :)
      I'll have to try that, thanks! :)

  2. Quite unique! I've never picked up a Sephora nail polish. I find their nail bar in my area kinda sloppy.


    1. Oh really? That's too bad :( I've never had a problem with the ones in my area

  3. this looks much better in the bottle :( I would try layering it over black though, could be pretty!
