[Swoon] Oh my, I think I’ve fallen in love with this nail polish! SpaRitual, why has it taken me so long to discover you?
At the core, SpaRitual is about vegan spa treatments for use in spas and at home. Indulgent but environmentally conscious. At SpaRitual, there are many messages of positivity, empowerment and self-confidence and these are in turn reflected in the three rituals explored through its products:
• Center Yourself
• Build a Solid Foundation
• Harness the Power of Color
And this is where the nail lacquer fits in – in the ritual of harnessing the power of color. Color has the power to soothe or seduce, nurture or ignite, says SpaRitual. According to the website, SpaRitual has a collection of 80 nail lacquers spread over four dynamic harmonies. With each SpaRitual shade comes a special message and a numerological value. SpaRitual has combined the discipline of colour therapy and numerology which encourages the user to have a moment of contemplation and reflection.
The four harmonies are:
• Dramatic High Notes - intense reds and magentas, representing the power of fire, energy & creation
• Earthy Low Notes - deep browns and maroons, representing the power of earth & connection.
• Airy Sopranos - mellow beiges and nirvana pinks. There are different messages for different colours. Eg: Ethereal (very light shimmery pink) - From up here, you have a unique perspective. Look closely. You are floating above it all. Don't let anyone bring you down.
• Cool Contraltos - fresh violets and chilled-out neutrals, representing the power of water, emotion & intensity.
Well, that was a whole bunch of words for a post on just a nail lacquer! I could have kept it short, of course, but you would have missed out on the philosophy behind all this.
Now, I present you a nail lacquer from the Earthy Low Notesharmony, I Feel The Earth Move, number 125. Its numerological number is 1+2+5=8. Confidence & power. The achiever. Hmmm…
Hey, don’t look at me! I bought this brand because I thought its philosophy was interesting and I chose this colour simply because the colour appealed to me! The unusual bulbous bottle comes with a cool, convenient rubber cap with ridges. The cap is actually patented and called the Plum Cap®. In SpaRitual’s words:
.....allowing easy opening of the bottle and a non-slip grip while applying the product. SpaRitual's signature brush is also specially designed to allow for precise lacquer application. The shorter brush length offers more control and accuracy of lacquer application. In addition, our bottle is crafted in Italy from reusable glass with up to 50% recycled materials and is recyclable with proper care.
SpaRitual Nail Lacquers are free of DBP, formaldehyde and toluene.
I must say that I’m really blown away by I Feel The Earth Move. It’s a glossy deep maroon-brown shade. Application was truly a dream! I don’t know if it’s any different with the other SpaRitual nail colours, but this one is amazingly streak-free. The first nail image above and this one on the left are with two coats. I’ve seen jelly-like nail polishes on some of your nails before, but I’ve never experienced one myself. I think the closest I’ve ever gotten to this finish was with KOH Red.
Fresh out of the bottle, this nail lacquer does have a nail polish scent but it doesn't linger long on the nails.
I thought I should also show you how it looks with just one coat (right). Here, you'll see the maroon-brown shade more clearly.
Gosh, I love both versions. I could almost lick the jelly!
This SpaRitual nail polish was purchased from C. Cosmetics and Care. More information can also be found on the SpaRitual website.
