SpaRitual Cherish Spring 2009 Color Collection

The new SpaRitual collection for Spring 2009, Cherish, features six shades that range from princess pink to baby blue. I have swatches of two of them to show to you today.

SpaRitual Marvel:

Lavender pink shimmer. Gorgeous color, fabulous application. I used three coats but you could really get away with two coats just fine. I love this color and look forward to wearing it often. 

SpaRitual Delight:

Stunning aqua blue creme. Before you ask, this is not a dupe for China Glaze For Audrey. Delight is a shade or two lighter than For Audrey. 

Oh Delight, you are a delight to look at but not a delight to apply. You see, this swatch isn't three coats of color, it's not even four coats. This swatch is a whopping FIVE , albeit thin, coats of nail polish. This color was just too streaky to look even with less than five coats. I have never encountered a five coater before, this is the first. I am shocked because I have never met a SpaRitual that I didn't like; usually their application is flawless. I don't know if it had something to do with my base coat or if somehow I got a dud of a bottle. Admittedly, I do not own SpaRitual's base coat. But I swatched this over my regular base coat and also a ridge filler. Neither was better than the other. I don't know if using SpaRitual's base coat might have improved the application of this color. I can only hope it would. Sigh... this is still such a pretty color. I don't know if I'll ever have the patience to actually do a manicure wearing it.

There are four other colors in SpaRitual's Cherish Spring 2009 color collection:

SpaRitual Love - bright pink creme
SpaRitual Adore - light pink shimmer
SpaRitual Treasure - bright orange shimmer
SpaRitual Revere - orange and gold shimmer 

I have not seen swatches or even bottle pictures yet of the other four colors but I am very curious to see Revere and Treasure. 

SpaRitual nail lacquers are available in fine salons and spas and online at skinstore.com
These new colors should be available any day now. 


  1. Marvel is lovely; can't wait to see the rest :D

  2. Delight is beautiful! And yes...she looks like a problem child. Five coats?! Frustration City! I didn't think For Audrey when I first saw this.....Delight looks a little more wearable. I love it!

  3. What a bummer about Delight. It looks wonderful. I will still probably give it a try because somehow I always believe problem children will behave for me. They rarely do. ;) Thanks for the great swatches!

  4. Those are both really wonderful...I wonder if Delight would be better over a pearly white? Just something to anchor the color better...

  5. Those are both really nice, I love the 5 coater of course! That's insanity!

  6. Delight reminds me of a shade that I had years and years ago. That particular brand only required one coat to look like Delight does.

  7. SpaRitual Marvel is beautiful!
