Hello lovelies,

 

I'm excited to show you a new nail polish from the SpaRitual’s Spring 2014 Collection Explore that is coming out in the next week or so! The collection consists of six shades in various finishes including creme, shimmer and finish.

 

"Bright orange, blue, pink and shimmering violet bring to mind colours found while exploring a North American Forest. Inspired by birds, butterflies and the whimsied nostalgia of national parks and the family campsite. SpaRitual’s Spring Collection catches the bright flashes of colour that punctuate the rich, earthy colours of a well-worn hiking trail. We take only inspiration and photos, leaving the butterflies, birds and wildflowers to delight the hikers and explorers who travel the trail after us."

 

Wilderness is a coral-peach polish with fine gold particles that dries into a textured finish. The formula was good to apply but slightly thicker; I find all textured polishes to be generally quite thick. The polish dried reasonably fast but as always textured polishes need a bit more time to harden because you're not using top coat. Then there is removal which is a bit like removing glitters but not as stubborn. I always hold the pad with remover on nails for about 2 minutes and then wipe it off with light pressure.

Overall, I like the texture and the formula and I would be happy to purchase some of the other polishes in the collection.

 

I've paired Wilderness with a sparkly gold background (jumper from Primark lol) and peach-coloured ring also from Primark which cost just £1.50 - bargain! Hope you like the pictures despite my red hands (it was freezing cold outside) and will stay tuned for some nail art with this polish!

 

SpaRitual Explore collection is available at Sparitual (UK), Feelunique.com and SpaRitual (US)

Hello lovelies,

One day In late Autumn I thought I'd try stamping over textured polish again and I chose snowflakes. Well it didn't went exactly according to my plans but I still want to share it.

I have used two coats of OPI Liquid Sand Baby Please Come Home from the Mariah Carey Holiday collection as a base. Then I stamped blue snowflakes using various stamping plates.

Winter theme continues with snowflakes!

Don't forget to check out previous post featuring Icicle nail art and video tutorial. For some reason I'm very proud of that manicure :D

 

Anyway have a lovely day and see you tomorrow!

 

Love, Lucie x
