The one thing I love most about Winter is all the dark, bold, rich nail lacquers available and the new Autumn/Winter 2012 Metal collection from SpaRitual offers exactly that. What better way to to recharge your nails ready for all the festive parties than treating yourself to colours from the new ‘element’ collection.
The Metal Collection features: Osmium (a dark, navy blue block colour), Bismuth (purple based pearlescent colour – awesome colour), Silver (a shimmery silver), Titanium (dark grey shimmer), Cassiterite (pale, gold glitter), Copper (a shimmery copper).
To be a little adventurous I decided to combine both Osmium and Cassiterite (tip overlay in image) in order to add a little sparkle to the very bold, rich, navy colour. As you can see the colours complement each other perfectly and coupled together offer that added extra . When I have more time to pamper myself and my nails I will definitely try the Osmium as a base, block colour with Cassiterite in diagonal stripes across my nails. Though really the possibilities are endless!
Please excuse my DIY manicure! However in my haste to apply the colours I noticed that when applying the Topcoat, gold shimmer from Cassiterite was also dragged across the Osmium base colour. The extra gold shimmer flecks spread over the dark navy blue really did look stunning and were easily picked out in the light.
As always I find the SpaRitual colours very easy to apply precisely due to the ergonomically designed handles. The ridges in the handle really do give that extra reassurance the handle will remain in your grip.
A perfect gift to treat any nail varnish addict this Christmas!
