SpaRitual has a new collection out for summer 2011 called Evolve.
It includes six new serene, mellow creme nail colors, and I’ve got a few to show you today.
Moss, Native Rock, Twig
Moss is a slightly dusty looking mint green creme. It’s definitely not what I think of when I think of the color of moss, which I picture much darker. Anyway, the color is still really nice. It’s not a pastel and it’s not a super minty mint if that makes sense. It has a really mellow tone to it somehow, looking more serene than most mint greens we see. The formula was good, but on the thinner side so I needed three coats for full coverage.
Native Rock is a grey-ish lavender creme. This is a really hard color to describe actually. It looks lavender, taupe and greyish all at once. It’s not my favorite on me because I don’t see enough contrast between it and my skin tone for my tastes. I think it would look really nice on much darker skin than mine. This also was on the thinner side but it still covered in just two coats.
Twig (also the name of one of my favorite MAC lipsticks from the early 90′s) is a medium cafe au lait taupe creme color. This totally reminds me of the coffee I drink every day. It’s not like most of the taupes we see, it also has that mellowed out serene feel to it that Moss has. Nice color, but again I feel like I want it to be darker on my skin to stand out more. This formula was much like Native Rock, thin but total coverage in two coats.
From what I saw this is a nice collection, but perhaps not anything completely original. It seems to be a collection for those who don’t want SUPER summer colors, just nice “quiet” tones.

So what do you feel about these colors? Too plain for you or do they hit just the right note?
