There are so many days to celebrate between Christmas and New Year’s and there’s nothing like a new polish to change up your look. SPARITUAL has a new long wear collection, Rise, that has quickly become a favorite. There are 4 holiday polishes that were sent to me for review. There’s not a one that you won’t want to wear on your nails. I see Christmas, I see Chanukkah, I see New Year’s Eve, and I see Bowl Games when I look at these polishes.
SPARITUAL GOLD ($18) has 3 finishes in their line and all are true winners. There are cremes like Take a Stand and Come Together, shimmers like Rising Spirit and Soulful, and glitters like Beyond Love. What makes these more unique is that they are quick drying polishes. But what reallllly makes them unique is that these are truly a self leveling polish when you use their Flexible Topcoat. They bounce back if you smear them when wet. I always mess up my nails putting on my jacket or seat belt and it happened again when I had my nails done with Rising Spirit. But where is that mistake? It’s gone, totally gone. I did nothing to it and it came back to its original finish. I’m amazed and grateful.
The brush on these polishes is one of the best I’ve used. I had my nails done with Rising Spirit as my first choice and one brushload was able to cover 3 nails. My nail tech was as amazed as I was. The name of the brush is the Mindful Brush and Sparitual created it with over 600 bristles that fan out for a precise application.
SPARITUAL GOLD RISING SPIRIT – when you look at the bottle you might not be attracted to it. I know I wasn’t and even my nail tech wasn’t impressed. Until, that is, we opened it and saw the beautiful yet subtle gold shimmer and outstanding shade. The bottles have a cover over them which I think is a shame because you can’t see the beauty within.
Rising Spirit is a work friendly gold which I didn’t think was possible. It’s not garish as some golds can be and that’s because the shimmer is within. It’s a stand out without being a turn off. I am crazy about it!
The shade I’m going to be wearing for Christmas is Soulful. It’s not labeled as a metallic but it definitely is plus it has that subtle shimmer that I’m loving. It’s the type of red that I crave on my nails any day of the year but especially around the winter holidays. When you add the Sparitual Gold Flexible Topcoat you are guaranteeing long wear on their polishes. I never did well with the original Sparitual polishes but these are out of this world with wear time.
Take A Stand is the holiday green polish that you need on your hands. This is just the perfect green to match the holiday colors. This green creme is practically a one coater. It’s thick and rich. It applies like a dream.
Come Together is harder for me to describe. It’s also a creme though it was a thinner cream. It’s not a red, it’s not a purple, but it has some of each of those colors in it.
Sparitual has a whole new take on glitter polishes ($12). Not only did they create some beauties but knowing of the complaints of glitter removal they also created a Peel Off Basecoat, Unveil. This is a wonderful basecoat for any polish you use with glitter but especially with Sparitual polishes. Apply a coat of Unveil and then a polish like the beautiful Beyond Love that I was sent, apply as many coats of the polish as you’d like. When you are ready for a new shade all you have to do is peel it off. No soaking, no acetate all over your hands that dry them out. Just peel. You’ll love it.
These shades are just a small picture of all the beautiful polishes that Sparitual Gold has created. I’m so much happier with this formula than the original and I love that it’s a vegan, cruelty-free brand. It’s dramatic to say these are a Christmas Miracle but they come close to one that you can buy. Have a happy holiday with Sparitual Gold. — Marcia
