Hello lovelies,

I've got here the whole SpaRitual Reflect Collection to review! This collection has been released earlier this year for the Summer 2013 season. At first glance the colour seem rather for Autumn/Fall rather than for Summer.

From SpaRitual press release: "Bask in the warmth of SpaRitual Summer 2013 collection, Reflect. Catch the radiant jewel-tones of late afternoon and the last shimmers of water and sky at sunset. Each of the SpaRitual Nail Lacquers – Reflect Collection is infused with Bamboo. This Bamboo is sustainably gathered from India and islands of the Pacific Ocean, Bamboo is known to absorb water and oil from the nail bed increasing the thickness of the nail for up to 35% stronger nails."

Freedom -  brownish purple with fuchsia and blue particles. The formula of the polish was quite thick so I've had to apply thicker coats to avoid patching. Two coats provided full coverage but dried rather average. The finish was satin so you will need layer of topcoat if you want a glossy finish.  Removal of the polish was ok but the blue and fuchsia particles were causing problems, sticking to skin.

Inner Beauty - multichrome foil with colour ranging from brown-green to pink. The multichrome effect is much stronger in the bottle and does not translate on the nail very much. It applied well and dried fast. I'm wearing two coats.

Joy - beige creme with pale gold glass flecks. This colour doesn't stand out for me at all even though it quite matched my skin tone. The formula was good - it applied well and dried quite fast. I needed two thicker coats for full coverage.

Innocence - beige creme. This shade is pretty for office friendly or mannequin hands. The formula was on the thicker side and quite hard to work with. It dries fast which in some cases caused patching. I've had to apply thicker coats for nail polish to look nice.

Kindness -burnt orange creme with gold particles. I'd wear this nail polish in Autumn or around Halloween. The formula was very nice - it applied easily and the pigmentation is great. I'm wearing two regular coats but it was almost one coater. I've had some issues when removing the polish as the gold particles seemed to stick to my nail and skin, really hard to get rid off.

Positive Vibe - mustard yellow creme. Ummm...not a colour I would pick out of the rack and it is more suitable for Autumn I'd think. However the formula is very nice. It applied easily, two coats were enough for full coverage and they dried fast.

This collection was somehow disappointing. I would like to see totally different colours, more cheerful and bright. The formulas differed polish from polish which I'm not a big fan either. Some of the shades like Kindness, Freedom and Inner Beauty appealed to me much more than the rest.

I've seen some upcoming SpaRitual collections containing glitters and some bright colours so I'm very much looking forward to them!

You can get these wherever SpaRitual polishes are sold and at:

Hello lovelies,

I'm grateful I got a chance to try and review Naild'it Unique Nail Polishes and I'm sure you'll find them very pretty! Andrea, the creator of these polishes must have a great imagination to create such pretties. You can find different finishes, mostly glitters and glitter jellies. 

Tea parties and Fairytales - mix of purple, white, black, pink and holographic glitter. I have applied one coat over Jacava Raspberry Bavarois. There is plenty of glitter in the bottle so I didn't have to fish it out. I wouldn't apply it alone as it would take at least three coats for good coverage. It's much better for layering. It applied good, dried fast and slightly satin.

Aurora’s Grape Escape - grape purple holo base with holo and turquoise glitters. This one is so pretty in real life and in the sun, the camera didn't pick up on the tiny holo specks. The formula was on the thicker side but I still managed to apply the polish ok. I'm wearing two thick coats and topcoat. The drying time was average to fast (partly because of the thicker coats) and removal was bit difficult due to glitter. I've soaked cotton pads in nail polish remover, held them on the nails for three minutes and then removed without problems.

Sir Round Sound - milky pink base with multicoloured  and multi shape glitter. I've left the best at last, I completely adored this polish on me! It applied very well but the base colour could have been a bit more opaque. I've applied two thick coats for good coverage but next time I might layer one coat over white. It dries slightly gritty so topcoat is needed.

So far I have tried these three Naild'it Unique nail polishes ad I was very pleased with them. I would like to see a tad better pigmentation but they can be layered. They all applied well so no problem formula-wise. I'm looking forward to try few more I've got so stay tuned :)
