Adorned Nails: SpaRitual Hypnotic



I’m not going to say anything cheesy with wordplay using the name of this polish. It’s tempting, but I won’t.

Hypnotic is a colour that SpaRitual released for its Winter 2009 collection. I know I’m extremely late to the party but does it matter? Besides, some of you living in the Southern Hemisphere are experiencing winter right now, so this one’s for you, ladies!


Hypnotic has been described as a charcoal brown shimmer. It’s like gunmetal with dark chocolate mixed in. This second photo (above) of the nails is truest to colour.


As base coat, I used SpaRitual’s Multi–Tasker Base & Top Coat In One. Hypnotic went on beautifully. What you see here is with two coats and no top coat. Again, these images were taken in daylight.


Hypnotic is beautifully sombre and broody. I’d be afraid to mess with its beauty.

@Yi
I'd go for it anyway, even if the nails are long. I'm sure your nails would look fab with this shade. :)

@London's-beauty
Do show us your nails on your blog when you get yourself some black nail polishes! :)

@Shop N' Chomp

Me too! It is after all not a crime to wear a dark broody shade in summer, right? :D

@Natalie

Never say never, Susan! Perhaps you just need a while to get used to seeing a dark shade on your nails. :)

Nice shade! Looks pretty on your nails too! I got myself a black polish a year back but hardly find myself to be reaching for it, guess I need to show some love to the poor thing :D
