I thought it would be fun to celebrate the London Olympics with a few posts inspired by the colors of the medals handed out (gold, silver, and bronze). This post features five of my favorite gold-colored products!
SpaRitual Twinkle Collection ($10.00 each for 0.50 fl. oz.) may have been a holiday collection, but it’s still available for purchase. The collection has six shades: Blue Moon (midnight violet shimmer), Shooting Star (velvet magenta shimmer), Twilight (deep amethyst purple), Illumination (silver glitter), Break of Dawn (red sparkle), and Solstice (textured gold foil).
Illumination is silver glitter suspended in a clear base. I showed two coats for swatches. It’s similar to Nubar Star Sparkle and China Glaze Tinsel, though it may be a little lighter.
Break of Dawn is a rich ruby red with copper and gold flecks of shimmer. It was opaque in two coats. Zoya Kimmy is more orange-based. Zoya Lisa has less dimension. Zoya Gloria is more muted and rose-like.
The majority of the shades apply beautifully; really great consistency–not too thick or too thin–so there was even flow across the nail with good color payoff with each coat. Blue Moon was slightly under-pigmented with very slight visible nail line after two coats. The consistency of Illumination was a little thick, so it tended to pool around the sides if you aren’t careful (and I wasn’t). SpaRitual always seems like an underrated brand to me–their formula usually has a nice consistency, good pigmentation, and the wear is fantastic (I get a week with minor tip wear). I’m also a huge fan of the rubberized cap, which makes it easier to grip and paint your nails!
