Hello lovelies,

Valentine's Day is quickly approaching so I want to show you at least one manicure with hearts :) I usually don't like to do manicures for holidays/special days etc. as I like to do what is my inspiration at the moment. But this will be an exception ;)

I don't know about you but I'm not into Valentine's Day very much. I believe that if you love someone you should show it all the time and not on a day that somebody else has chosen. I do however want flowers at least on the Valentine's Day :D

So back to the nails...for this manicure I have used Zoya GeiGei from the spring Lovely collection (reviewed here). The rest is painted with acrylic paint and sealed with a coat of Seche Vite.

Hello lovelies,

I've got a great opportunity to show you half of the new SpaRitual Meditate collection for Spring 2013. The collection is available right now.

From SpaRitual press release: "Celebrate the awakening of spring 2013. Feel its embrace with airy pastels and gentle feminine hues. Breathe in its colours. Its textures. Its harmony. Then just…be. 

Help support the David Lynch Foundation. 20% of profits will be donated to implement scientifically proven stress reducing modalities, including Transcendental Meditation.

As with all SpaRitual lacquers, these new shades are vegan and free of DBP, Toluene    and  Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde resin. Each nail lacquer includes our sleek patented Plum Cap allowing effortless opening of the bottle and a non-slip grip while applying lacquer."




Calm & Clear - baby pink jelly. This polish is just too cute. It will give you that clean and elegant look and high gloss finish. It has a jelly formula which usually means lower pigmentation. This is three coats which were fully opaque. If you have short nails you could possibly get away with two coats. The drying time was surprisingly fast as jellies usually 'take their time' otherwise they are patchy. I haven't experienced any patches with this little beauty. It applied and removed very easily.

Peace and Harmony - matte white with subtle silver shimmer. I'm starting to love matte polishes all over again and this one will be a great base for nail art. It is however slightly less pigmented. I'm wearing two thick coats for full coverage or you could use three thin coats. It applies well but the formula is a bit runny. It dries fast. When I removed the polish I've experienced lots of small shimmer particles sticking to my skin.

Introspective - pale green half-jelly creme with subtle gold shimmer. Lovely green shade that evokes spring in my eyes. It applied easily and the polish levelled itself out nicely. As it's partly jelly I needed two thick coats for the coverage you see in the pictures. It dries fast and removal is easy too.

SpaRitual Meditate collection:




Overall, I like these three shades but I think it's quite a shame they are not pigmented little bit more. My absolute favourite is Calm & Clear, the pink jelly. Jelly polishes are always problematic but except the pigmentation these have great formulas. I was pleasantly surprised to see a matte finish polish.
