SpaRitual Nail Lacquer in Summer Hues

Just in time for summer, here are six fun shades from SpaRitual that are truly representative of the season.   Each shade retails for $10.00 and is vegan and free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde Resin.   Lustress, Solaris, Golden Gleam, and Optical Illusion are from the summer Kaleidoscope collection.

  • Lustress is a deep red-tinted pink with flashes of pink shimmer. It almost looks like glass flecks to me. Just two coats for complete color.
  • Love & Happiness is a coral-orange cream. It’s not quite neon, but it’s almost there. Two coats for opaque color.
  • Solaris is a bright, neon orange cream. Super, super pigmented — two coats shown, but you could almost get away with one.
  • Golden Gleam is a bright yellow gold with lighter gold shimmer and a near metallic finish. Some brush strokes were noticeable, but it wasn’t too obvious. Two coats for opaque color.
  • Optical Illusion is a deep olive green base with lighter olive green glitter-shimmer. Just two coats for opaque color, though it was nearly opaque with one coat. Truly a stunning shade!
  • Dreams Becoming Reality is a shade from an upcoming fall collection, so I’ll have swatches and more information on it then.

SpaRitual knows how to make a good, consistent formula.  The application on all six of these was absolutely superb–smooth, rich color that wasn’t too thick or thin.  No streaking, fussing, or dragging.  Drying time on the brighter creams seemed a little speedier, but otherwise average and nothing noteworthy either way. Optical Illusion stands out something fierce amongst these, though — a really unique shade that just sparkles in the light.

  • Product: 29/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

Recommendation:  LOVE Optical Illusion!  I also really love and appreciate SpaRitual’s formula consistency–it’s a good formula and it’s found in all six.

Where can we get this collection? Are there any recommended online stores?

I like:
*Dreams Becoming Reality
*Optical Illusion (this one looks so unique!!!)
*Golden Gleam
*Lustress

Apparently, Dreams Becoming Reality is a fall shade, so it’s not out yet, but the other three are available now. I believe I saw them on skinstore.com!

Lovely colours 🙂
But I couldn’t find “Dreams becoming Reality” on the SpaRitual website nor anywhere else.
Do you think this might have been just a working name & they changed it later?

Lustress and Optical Illusion ARE super pretty, wow! Didn’t expect myself to like pink at all, I usually don’t. Too bad they’re $10 🙁

Optical Illusion and Golden Gleam are WONDERFUL, but I’m dying to see a swatch of Dreams Becoming Reality… it looks like the most perfect blue!
