I’ve recently discovered a great brand that makes vegan nail polish, body care, and lip gloss and have been meaning to share colors with you. Finally getting around to it! There is much to love about SpaRitual. They’re pioneers of slow beauty. What’s that you ask? It’s described on their site as having a greater awareness, slowing down and quieting your mind from the noise of this frenzy-filled world, and gaining a “deeper understanding of the rhythms of life. It is a place unconstrained by time, envy or vanity.” You can read more about it here. Its a philosophy I can definitely get on board with.
About a six weeks ago they kindly sent me a box of pretty samples, some from their Infinitely Loving collection which consists of peaches, pinks, roses, and whites, and is “settling & restoring” to the mind, body, and spirit. The signature scent of this collection is Chinese Jasmine and in addition to nail lacquers and lip gloss they also sent their Infinitely Loving Soy Candle – which has become one of my absolute favorites. I included it in the holiday gift guide. It is so calming and peaceful. And because it is made with pure essential oils and plant essences, it doesn’t give me a headache.
The nail lacquers are in .5oz bottles with rubber grip handles. Love this. They’re vegan and 5-free and at $12 a bottle I think they’re a pretty great price considering many other companies sell polish for more than that and you get half as much in the bottle. They also have a TON of colors available…like more than 200 (and some are available in mini size!). I’ve been using the Multi-Tasker Base & Topcoat every single time I do my nails even if I’m not using a SpaRitual color – great stuff. It dries fast, helps protect and strengthen and gives a nice gloss on top that lasts all week.
Left: Fall in Love / Right: Marvel
Fall in Love is a pretty red with hints of golden sheen and is actually right on trend with Pantone’s 2015 color of the year, Marsala. Marvel is a pretty rosy pink with a super delicate shimmer that is perfect for everyday or for brides.
Left: Mirage without topcoat / Right: Mirage with topcoat
Mirage is one of their sandy matte shimmers. At first I thought this was kind of an oxymoron…how can you have a matte shimmer right? But as you can see it is just that. If you want it traditionally shiny and sparkly though you can just swipe a topcoat over it and voila.
Left: Walk on the Ocean / Right: Walk on the Ocean, Mirage, Arroyo (another sandy matte shimmer), Whirlwind Romance, and Walk on the Ocean again
Walk on the Ocean is SO gorgeous! With just two coats you get a mother of pearl effect that is ethereal and well, one of my favorites.
The lip glosses are also quite impressive. They sent me Calm, Radiant, and Days of Wine & Roses. Who doesn’t love a name like that! I included Calm in my November favorites. I definitely recommend these, and give SpaRitual a big thumbs up in general. Have you tried anything from this brand or have anything from this brand on your wishlist? xo – Naomi
