SpaRitual has launched its new summer 2015 collection, called Gathering. It comprises six rich colours, including this one, Tend.
Tend has an overall mustard-leaning gold colour. It has a yellowy-gold base and small gold flakies, which give a lovely shimmery finish.
I tried painting this on its own at first, but it left some visible nail line, so instead I layered it over a similar colour, Barry M Mustard. You could get a similar result by painting a coat or two more than I did, but I found it easiest to layer it.
I’m never sure about gold. I don’t think it goes so well with my skin tone. I suit the strong, bright colours better; like red, turquoise, hot pink and orange. While this is a lovely colour, it’s not my favourite from the collection. I think I prefer Nurture and Infuse.
The six colours in the collection are:
- Harvest – a sand / nude with gold shimmer
- Cultivate – a coral crème
- Tend – a gold shimmer
- Blend – an burnt orange jelly with silver shimmer
- Nurture – a raspberry neon crème
- Infuse – a neon orange with gold shimmer
In the UK, you can buy SpaRitual nail polish from the SpaRitual website. Polishes in this collection cost £9.75.
I’ve also recently seen that Nail Polish Direct has started selling SpaRitual too, and they have this collection and many others. More than 30 of the older polishes are just £5.00, which is a bargain. So, if you’re a SpaRitual fan like me, then it might be a good time to go have a nosey at them.
