New for spring 2012 is SpaRitual’s Water collection.
This collection is a little special because SpaRitual is supporting an organization called Surge, which is a non-profit company that improves access to clean, safe water for communities around the world. 20% of the proceeds from this collection will be donated to Surge.
“The Water Collection represents the importance it has for our physical wellbeing (up to 70% of the human body is composed of water) and our emotional health (it’s a proven fact that water provides soothing benefits). Sadly, communities around the world lack access to clean drinking water,” says SpaRitual founder, Shel Pink. “We’re pleased to be involved with Surge, and to support the foundation’s efforts to help provide clean, safe drinking water worldwide.”
Aside from the fact that this is a really great cause, the collection has some amazing colors!
Lucid is a pale cool lilac creme. It’s got a blue-ish undertone to it, almost a cornflower blue but not quite. For a pastel color, it wasn’t overly chalky or streaky which is nice. It did take three coats to get it completely even though.
Ebb & Flow
Ebb & Flow is a bright aqua blue creme. This baby is bright, but not neon, and so gorgeous. It’s my favorite one from the collection. These kind of blue polishes always grab me! This was just two coats.
Ripple Effect is a dusted lavender/mauve creme. Pretty color, has a lot of pink to it. This was three coats because it was on the sheer side.
Hidden Reef is a coral shade with pink and gold shimmer. Wowzers. I love this one a lot! Super duper flattering on my skin tone and just really a pretty spring shade. This was two coats.
Deep is a deep greyed out purple with understated pink and purple shimmer. The base is murky and the shimmer kind of is also. It’s not very prominent and settles into the background of the polish. I wish I could see the shimmer more because I would have liked it more I think. This was two coats.
Undercurrent is a dark navy blue creme. Pretty and very shiny. This was two coats.
I think the stand-out shades for me were Ebb & Flow and Hidden Reef, though they are all nice shades. Ripple Effect, Undercurrent and Lucid might have a lot of dupes or similar colors already out there.
