SpaRitual Ebb & Flow Nail Lacquer

Let Summer Ebb & Flow Across Your Nails

SpaRitual Ebb & Flow Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a brightened blue with a hint of aqua in a cream finish. It’s more aqua, less blue compared to Rescue Beauty Lounge Faraway. Zoya Robyn may be the most similar that I can think of, but it’s bluer–no real aqua tones to it. China Glaze Towel Boy is kind of similar but not quite there. OCC Pool Boy is on the spectrum but much, much lighter.

This is such a summery shade to me–there’s something that reminds me of tropical beaches, sparkling oceans, and summer.  It’s opaque after two coats, but the consistency is a wee bit thick, so the drying time seemed a little long. It seemed to pull/drag if you didn’t wait for it to dry down, so I’d advise some patience with this one (as some formulas are more forgiving than others).  It dries to a naturally shiny finish but not 100% full-on glossy, so if you like that look, I’d still recommend a top coat.  I get a full week of wear out of SpaRitual’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping, and they package their lacquers well, because of the rubberized handle, which makes it easier to hold and open.

  1. Ah, this looks like a similar polish to the Bobbi Brown, but with a better formula. I love this colour, but strangely enough, not on nails.

    Whoa-ah! So blue it looks digitally added to your hands. Lurvely ;)

  3. It looks good on you, but it’s really not my kind of color.

  4. Wow this is such a bright, cheery blue–I love it!

  5. I’ve never heard of this brand, but it looks so pretty! Reminds me of the waters of Bora Bora!

  6. Never heard or this brand either. It’s a fun color but not one I would personally wear.

  7. Beautiful color. May have to try it
