SpaRitual Intellect

Intellect is my second polish from the just launched SpaRitual Illuminate Christmas 2013 collection.

The collection comprises six polishes that “borrow luminous colour from the master glassmakers of Italy. Cool electric hues reflect a rich heritage of craftsmanship. Iridescent shades catch and play with light. Recycled glass beads magnify vibrant colours.”

Intellect is a sheer blue jelly, flecked with silver, blue and violet. It’s more sheer than Intention, so I needed four coats but they dried really quickly so it wasn’t a problem.

The polish looks like a blue-violet duochrome in the bottle, but on the nail that doesn’t translate and it just looks blue.

As with the other polish in this collection that I’ve tried, as it’s being painted on, it really does look like flecked liquid glass, but it dries quite matte, so I used a top coat to give it more shine and sparkle.

This is a wonderful colour for winter, and would be a great base for some seasonal nail art.

It is a very pretty color!
I love it!


That is just lovely, your pictures really show off the depth of colour. It does remind me of of that wonderful Murano glass and I guess that is the point! Stunning.
