Sweet treats of colour for your fingertips

SpaRitual-Spring-2013-Meditate-Collection-review-and-swatchesToday’s review is of the SpaRitual Meditate Spring 2013 collection. Though these days are ‘supposed’ to be the last weeks of Spring, with all the showers we have been getting in London of late, I say we have a few more weeks to go and in that time I intend on working my way through the Spring 2013 collections I have accumulated over the past few months.

 

 

 

SpaRitual says of their Mediatate collection:

Celebrate the awakening of spring 2013. Feel its embrace with airy pastels and gentle feminine hues. Breathe in its colors. Its textures. Its harmony. Then just…be.

 

The colours in the collection are:

SpaRitual-Spring-2013-Meditate-Collection-review-and-swatches- Calm and Clear | Quietness | Introspective | Energy| Transcend | Peace and Harmony

 

 

 


SpaRitual Meditate Spring 2013 Collection


SpaRitual-Calm-and-Clear-Spring-2013-MeditateCalm and Clear is a very sheer dusty pink jelly. To achieve a full opaque finish, I applied three medium thick coats of the polish but the formulation worked great for me as each coat dried pretty quickly and evenly.


 

SpaRitual-Quietness-Spring-2013-MeditateQuietness is a nude shade with strong yellow undertones. This polish is definitely unique and unlike any other nude shade I own. Though the creme formulation took me three medium thick coats to achieve full coverage, it levelled off nicely and left behind a super shine and flawless finish.


 

SpaRitual-Introspective-Spring-2013-MeditateIntrospective is a gorgeous muted jade shade filled with lots of tiny golden shimmers. After two medium thick coats, the self levelling formula left a finish that was perfectly opaque and glossy but unfortunately the shimmers didn’t translate so well unto my nails. Nevertheless, this is a perfect shade for Spring.


 

SpaRitual-Energy-Spring-2013-MeditateEnergy is a muted blue jelly which in certain lights has strong green undertones. I found this formula to be very similar to Calm and Clear as it glided on very smoothly but was very sheer and took 3 medium thick coats to create this solid block of delicate colour on my nails.


 

SpaRitual-Transcend-Spring-2013-MeditateTranscend is an off white shade with many ultra fine gold shimmers that while subtle, was still very much visible when the polish was applied to my nails. This was the first polish in the collection that I found to apply quite patchy and required two thin coats followed by a final thick coat to get full coverage. Again the polish levelled off nicely to create an even, flawless finish.


 

SpaRitual-Peace-and-Harmony-Spring-2013-MeditatePeace and Harmony is a pure white shade laced with iridescent shimmers that add depth to the colour and separating it from any other white in my collection.  The formula was very much similar to Transcend and didn’t apply as easy as the first four polishes. After three semi thick coats, I achieved a stunning matte shimmery finish.

 

Today's review is of the SpaRitual Meditate Spring 2013 collection. Though these days are 'supposed' to be the last weeks of Spring, with all the showers we have been getting in London of late, I say we have a few more weeks to go and in that time I intend on working…

Total Score

With an even mix of creme, jelly and matte finishes, these muted pastels connote the idea of peace and tranquility. The shimmer added to some of the colours created a nice twist on the traditional pastels and in turn creating delicate and unique shades ideal for the Spring season.
