SpaRitual Invention

SpaRitual is a new to me brand that's recently popped up at Ulta stores.  I snagged Invention, from the 2013 holiday collection, and a couple others to try from a recent sale at

All the pics here were taken on the same rainy afternoon.  The muted grey light really brought out the flash, but all the shimmery shift in this polish was evident in any lighting.  Invention is a warm coppery gold color, packed with very fine glass fleck shimmer.  Apparently, it actually is glass, as the whole holiday collection is supposed to contain recycled glass.

That glassy shimmer often looks like a foil finish.  It's very fine, not chunky sparkle particles at all.  It shifts from a cool, flashy gold all the way to verdigris green.

It's fairly sheer, and needs a good 3 coats.  The glass fleck would likely be lovely over a very dark color or black, but you'd lose a lot of color that way since the translucent base would be easily overwhelmed by something more opaque.

It's a pretty color, and the bright flash got me a lot of compliments.

Rating:  3 of 5 stars.  A solid, pretty sparkler, with a very nice, smoothly applying formula.

Where to buy:  check out the sale at (linked above), where i got some of these $15 bottles for about $6 each.  SpaRitual is also sold at Ulta.
