SpaRitual Believe Collection
SpaRitual Nail Lacquers: I am the Light, Yes, I Can, Hope Springs Eternal

SpaRitual Believe Collection for Spring 2010

For spring, SpaRitual has created a collection of six shades: Yes, I Can (leafy green creme), I Believe in You (poppy orange creme), Hope Springs Eternal (hot pink shimmer), Spread Your Wings (pomegranate creme), Shoot for the Stars (purple creme), I am the Light (lavender creme).

Each shade comes with a unique charm that dangles from the bottle with “an inspiring mantra,” like Yes, I Can comes with the charm “I Can.” This collection of nail lacquers will be available February 2010 at fine salons and spas nationwide, as well as skinstore.com. Each bottle retails for $10.00.

  • I am the Light is a cool-toned lilac. It’s very spring-y! It has a cream finish and goes opaque in just two medium-thick coats. The formula gave me no issues when I applied it, which was surprising (I’m not always so good at applying cream polishes!).
  • Yes, I Can is a rich, grassy green cream. Like I am the Light, it goes opaque in two solid coats. I don’t think I own any greens like this in my own stash, so it’s a nice addition.
  • Hope Springs Eternal is a bright, shimmery pink-coral that flashes fuchsia-pink in some light. It has an almost chrome finish to it, though it’s definitely not a full-on chrome. I had some brushstrokes, but I think with a more patient hand, you could get it to look pretty smooth. This formula was easy to apply and went opaque in two coats.

Are you digging any of these shades?

  1. Hope Springs is gorgeous!

    I like Yes I Can! and Hope Springs Eternal but the coral shimmer polish is a bit streaky!

  3. MissDeeCanada

    These colours are just so odd lol…

      I agree. I’ve certainly seen a lot of nail polishes but these just look strange for some reason, especially the green one.

  4. Stacey

    Yes I Can looks like it would stain, but I adore the color.

  5. Jean

    I don’t have a grass green in my NP collection yet so I must have Yes, I can.

  6. Perri

    The first two colors are awesome!! WANT!

    Your nails look very well taken care of and long, thick and healthy, no cuticles- just perfect! Do you recommend any products that help?

    ALso, what is your routine when swatching nail polish? The nails look so fresh and clean and no sign of other colors previously on them…

    Thanks and loooove your site-thanks for reviewing drug store brands!

    • Hey Susan,

      I don’t actually wear nail polish that often – partially because I’m lazy, but mostly because I never wear it for so long so then the whole time to wear it for maybe a day or two makes me not bother. So, I don’t know if maybe the fact that I don’t wear much polish contributes to healthy nails at all, but that’s me! Otherwise, I try to use hand cream/lotion regularly and tend to file rather than cut (and always use a glass file).

      When I swatch polish, it’s all about getting it done, so I’m not 100% dedicated to making it *look* perfect on the nail. I lay down a base coat (typically Zoya Anchor), apply one medium-thick coat of polish to nails (I only do three – the ones pictured!), wait 2-3 minutes to dry a bit, then apply a second coat, wait 30 seconds to a minute, then apply a top coat (usually Zoya or Seche Vite).

      I don’t put polish to the edges if I can help it — this makes it easier to remove the polish and less likely to get polish everywhere else! I use Zoya’s Remove+ to remove.

    Lovely and lovely on you. I’ve been looking for pretty much that exact shade of lilac.

  9. Really it’s very beautiful and looking great. I think I really need that green. REALLY need it. lol. Thanks Brooke!!
