I’m not even gonna… So I have been polishing my nails. I have been taking photos. And I just haven’t gotten around to transferring most of them to my computer yet. 😛 Mea culpa.
Still, despite that, I have couple of weeks worth of polishes to post about. 🙂
Here’s one from SpaRitual’s spring collection.
This is Deep — a beautiful dark grey creme with hidden purple shimmer. The idea is just lovely. But what would make it even better is if the shimmer were just a tad more noticeable on the nail as well.
Mostly, it just looks like a dark grey creme. Which isn’t necessarily a bad thing…
If I could just for the life of me figure out, why this was in the spring collection?
The polish is definitely more fall/winter…
Speaking of “deep”… here’s a bog lake in the evening from a hike a few weeks ago.
I got the SpaRitual Water collection mini set some time in spring, and to be fair, these are more spring than summer polishes… however, I’ve only gotten around to wearing one of them so it was about time I tried the rest. 😉
Ebb & Flow is right up my alley. Being a bright aqua creme (slightly more greenish in real life than pictures) this is among my favourite type of colours.
Gorgeous two-coat formula. 🙂
This is such a happy-making polish to look at on my nails.
Pale lilacs, lavenders and periwinkles are among the prettiest nail polish colours I can think of… And to my horror I realised that the SpaRitual polishes I bought ages ago were still in my untrieds. 😦
The first one I tried out on a dreary rainy summer day was SpaRitual’s Lucid.
Ungh. Isn’t it pretty? This is a pale very cool lilac with a strong hint of grey.
I also wanted to compare this to some other favourites of mine…
Models Own Beth’s Blue – SpaRitual Lucid – American Apparel L’Esprit – OPI Rumples Wiggin’.
As you can see, Lucid is basically a love child of Beth’s Blue and L’Esprit… though just a bit paler and the formula is sheerer requiring 2-3 coats to be opaque. It’s a very nice and easily controlled formula though!
