Today I have the newest SpaRitual collection to show you and it's a very exciting one! No nude and earth tones but bold shades and glitters! The collection is called Laugh and has been released for Summer 2013.
Burst - red and pink glitter in a pink jelly base. This is a very pretty combo packed with glitter. It applied very well and I'm wearing two thicker coats. The tinted jelly nicely fills out any gaps but I can see my tips showing a bit. I needed thick topcoat to smooth the surface.
Hugs - blackened indigo blue with purple undertones. Absolutely stunning dark indigo blue! It might seem to be black but it really is not. The subtle blue shimmers shows under the light or in the sun. it applied very nicely and the pigmentation was excellent. One coat was almost enough but I needed two coats for perfect coverage. Short nails might need just one thicker coat.
Optimistic - muted matte white with beige undertones. Ok I don't know what I was thinking when I painted my nails but I put topcoat on *facepalm*. Without topcoat this polish dries nicely matte. I needed three coats for full coverage, two just weren't perfect. Otherwise it applied easily and dried fast.
Giggle - multi coloured glitter in a clear base. Fun glitter topcoat that will work with many colours. The bottle is loaded with glitter that applies well. There's plenty of it so I didn't have to worry about glitter placement. I'm wearing just one coat over Optimistic.
HA...HA... - silver and red glitter in a clear base.Oh I love this glitter topper! Rubies in the snow I say! It looks just perfect over Hugs and would look great over any dark colour. This is just one coat so you can see there's plenty of glitter in the bottle. It applied easily and dried fast.
Out Loud - teal jelly with blue, green and green holo glitter. Last but not least there's this gorgeous teal jelly packed with glitter it is on a sheer side so I've applied three thicker coats. It would be more efficient to layer it over teal polish but then you would loose the gorgeous layered jelly look. The drying time was a bit longer due to thick layers and I needed thick layer of topcoat to smooth the finish.
I like this collection a lot as it offers great variety of colours and finishes. SpaRitual collections have been quite bland lately (pastels or earth tones) so I am very much welcoming this fun Summer collection. The formulas varied a lot so please refer to each shades' separate review above.
My top picks are Hugs, Burst and HA...HA...
