There’s Something Murky Lurking In Here

SpaRitual Lithophonic Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep brown metallic shimmer infused with rhyolite.” It’s a murky olive-tinged brown with olive green shimmer. Dior Czarina is darker, less green. Dior Amazonia is an olive green, so it is a lot less brown and has no shimmer. China Glaze Agro is much greener, less brown. NARS Mash is also quite greener with way less brown in it.  China Glaze Zombie Zest came the closest, though it is obviously lighter; it has a similar brown-colored base and green shimmer.

This shade is totally opaque with two coats of the polish.  It had a good consistency–not too thick or too thin–and flowed evenly across the nail without bubbling or streaking.  The shimmer dispersed evenly and just barely created brush strokes–only noticeable with a lot of light and barely under those conditions. I love SpaRitual’s packaging, because the rubberized handle makes it easier to hold and open the bottle.  I typically see a week of wear out of SpaRitual’s formula with very minor tip wear.

To be perfectly honest, I really don’t like that sort of colour on my nails (fingers or toes) – same goes for brown, grey – shades like that, but that looks so beautiful in texture and depth of colour and the glitter is so refined and beautiful that I wish I did like the colour.

Is there some hint of halo glitter in it because it looks like it in the very last pick. This is a shade i would probably never even picked up but seeing it on you I must have 😀

Jennie – The ones that I’ve tried have gone on nice and smooth with good wear time. Of course, check Christine’s reviews for thorough comments on specific colors, but overall it’s a reliable brand.

Okay, so, weird question. I LOVE this color…and would love to wear it as an eyeshadow. Are there any in a similar olive/brown/green…uh…tri-chrome?

Such a cool color – I love it! I have a question I hope you can help with. You always seem to have consistently nice nails. My nails are always brittle, peeling, and breaking. My nails break even when I’m folding laundry! Do you have any suggestions on what REALLY works to help nails? I’ve tried different strengthening, moisturizing, and growth formulas and nothing seems to work. I’d appreciate any feedback/suggestions anyone has. Thanks guys!

I ordered this during the Sephora Friends & Family event. I’m even more excited to get it now that I’ve see Christine’s beautiful swatches! Can’t wait!

How do you get a full week out of polish?? Do you wear gloves or do anything specific to protect your hands? I think I’m way too hard on mine and this last manicure I did, my polish is chipping after a day and a half.

No, I don’t do anything specific or at all. I open bottles, cans, scratch off stickers, etc. I use my hands/fingers/nails as tools all the time!
