SpaRitual Home Collection Swatch and Nail Art

Press sample
OK, so it's about time I showed you what was on my nails New Year's Eve? Right? At least it's still the first week in January! Ever since my move, I've been working towards getting that balance of home life and blog life just right. I'm discovering it will always be a work in progress and that some weeks will favor blog work but others, understandably will favor home/family life and that's ok with me!
So, very thrilled to be able to feature my first press sample from SpaRitual, a brand I've always admired! I have three of the six from the Home Collection today. I'll show you the other three in a separate post. Here's how they describe the collection: 
Home welcomes us w/ open arms & 6 eclectic new lacquers. Following the legends of the great nomads we embarked on a journey to see the world and reconnect with our true selves. The road was long but the greatest distance traveled was in our hearts. This holiday finds us home and filled with memories, lessons and gifts to share. Pewter with subtle hints of glitter, lavender shimmer or bright purple with bold layers of sparkle, and not-so-traditional holiday gold, red and green.
I was a fan of this company from the first time I heard about them. Created by Shel Pink in 2004, with a clear idea of an enlightened consumer in mind, she called them SpaRitualists, and created a brand to honor the collective mind, body and spirit. SpaRitual products are widely found in Spas and it's no wonder.  
We believe that what we put on our bodies is as important as what we put in our bodies.
We formulate our body care products with vegan ingredients from around the world, including many specially sourced and selected plant essences that are Certified Organic and Fair Trade. Our nail lacquers and nail care essentials are vegan and formulated without DBP, toulene, formaldehyde and formaldehyde resin. All SpaRitual products are packaged responsibly and are designed to complement an enhanced multisensory experience. Unique to our body care and nail lacquer categories are four States of Slow Beauty. Each contains a signature scent and color palette that createsa multisensory Slow Beauty experience. Step off the fast track and join us. Be a SpaRitualist. Slow Beauty for a fast world.®

 Here's the final look using SpaRitual Spirit, Finding and Living

SpaRitual Spirit - a greyish lavender shimmer.

This is the kind of shimmer that is very sheer on its own. At first I tried it on its own but realized fast it would need quite a few coats to reach the opacity that I desired. Instead, I used one coat over black and think it turned out beautifully.

SpaRitual Finding - gold foil shimmer.

I used a small nail art brush to paint triangles with Finding. Beautiful gold foil, easy to work with and great coverage in one coat.

SpaRitual Living - purple glitters in a gold shimmer base

Can't have a New Year's celebration without glitter, right? Living has a great formula full of glitter but not so much that it bunches up and doesn't lay nicely.

Hope your New Year is off to a good start! I've decided 2015 is the year I finally loose the baby weight. Ha! My twins are 5! :P Anyone else taking on new fitness goals?
