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.
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.
