Nail art dotticure and review of SpaRitual Basalt from Rock collection for Fall 2012

Hello lovelies,

Today I want to show you another SpaRitual shade from the Rock collection for this fall and a dotticure I've done with it. Few days ago I've reviewed Lithophonic from the same collection and you can read the review here. Today's shade is called Basalt and it's also very interesting.

For this dotticure I've used dotting tools and SpaRitual shades in Basalt, Optical Illusion and Back To Your Roots. The smallest white dots are done with Essence White Stamping polish.

Basalt - blue-ish dark grey jelly-creme. The formula is a bit strange - it's something between jelly and creme finish. Despite being half-jelly, it applied very easily. The pigmentation is little lower but two thicker coats were enough. You might consider applying three thin coats for faster drying. I'm also wearing a topcoat and it removed very easily

  6. Lucy, my jaw just dropped. This is such a simple but stunner of a design. I love, love, love how you added the white, it make it look like you've added a green gem stone on top of the beige base. I just love this so much!!! also Ishould add that Ive been waiting for you swatches of Sparitual fall (and my wallet shaking with fear) :)

  9. Oh Lucy! You've done it again :-) I am looking at this right now and I'm at work. I totally want to run from my desk and go home right now and try this! I was surprised to see that that smallest dot was a 'white' dot. I totally thought it was a 'glitter/ sequin'... all I can say is ahhhhh..... ***hugs***
