Sparitual: Drift- Summer 2014 Collection

✯ PR Sample ✯

SpaRitual was kind enough to send me a few of their nail polish collections, topcoats, and even a hand serum. I will be breaking these up into about four different blog reviews, so not to overwhelm everyone. This is the first time I've tried SpaRitual, though I have heard of them. 

Today I have the SpaRitual Drift: Summer 2014 Collection. It features six different colors: Blue Lagoon, Buoyant, Low Tide, Barefoot, Sea Glass, On the Dunes.

Inspired by a day at the beach, Drift features colors found in the frosted, semi-translucent pale greens and blues of sea glass. Multi-dimensional when layered, they catch the light just like in the shallow waters of the ocean.

My thoughts on the bottle design: The round bottle is easy to hold, and I especially like the rubber grip lids. The brush is a bit small, but easy to manage. 

Blue Lagoon an ocean blue cream. I really adore this color! Three thin coats and it's opaque. I did a little design with striping tape and On The Dunes. (Ignore my wonky striping tape lines... wahhh...)

Buoyant is a peach cream. It applies much like the other creams in this collection, three thin coats and it's opaque. I also paired it again with On The Dunes and another striping tape design.

Barefoot is described as a sandy shimmer. It's a nude cream, with little bits of orange and silver glitter. It's really a unique color, I was surprised by how much I liked it. It was opaque in just two coats.

I was also sent the Mattify Matte Topcoat, here is two coats over Barefoot. (I'll be using the matte topcoat in a few upcoming posts too).

Low Tide is a very pretty turquoise cream. Three thin coats and it's completely opaque. I decided to do a gradient with On The Dunes.

On The Dunes: a sandy gold color, with tiny silver specks. As you can see, On The Dunes really pairs well with all of the colors in this collection. This is two coats.

Sea Glass is a sheer shimmery green/purple duo chrome, with glass fleck. It's very very sheer, so if you want to wear it on it's own, 3-4 coats will get it semi-opaque. (I did 4 coats below). You could probably also layer this over black or green polish for a stronger effect.

SpaRitual products are vegan. And their nail lacquer doesn't have a very strong scent, which is nice. You can read more about SpaRitual's philosophy here.

We formulate our body care products with vegan ingredients from around the world, including many specially sourced and selected plant essences that are Certified Organic and Fair Trade. Our nail lacquers and nail care essentials are vegan and formulated without DBP, toulene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin.

I was also sent Handprint Hand Serum. It has a slight spicy/fruit scent. (There's apple, and ginger & licorice root in it). The directions say to apply two pumps to the back of the hands. It's very light and absorbs quickly without feeling too greasy. It really leaves my hands silky soft.

Now... the serum is on the pricier side, it retails for $40. I wouldn't pay full price for this, as it's outside my budget. But, I will be using this every night before bed. I will let you know in a future post how I've liked using the serum long-term, and if it's worth the splurge or not, for those of you that can budget this! :-)

HandPrint Hand Serum is formulated with Swiss Apple Stem Cells and infused with Ginger Root Extract to soften and smooth skin’s texture, Pumpkin Fruit Extract to help build collagen and promote elasticity, and Licorice Root to help brighten discoloration.

In a few days I'll be sharing a few colors from the Quest Collection, and have a review on the Protein Boost Strengthening Treatment, and the Extra Strength Lacquer Remover Cloths.

And, over the next few weeks, I'll be sharing some of the colors from SpaRitual's upcoming Fall & Holiday 2014 collections. 

*I used Seche Vite topcoat in all the swatches above.
