SpaRitual Wilde Fall 2011 Collection Swatches

Good Afternoon loves!!

  This time around I have swatches of SpaRitual's Wilde Fall 2011 Collection. I have been excited about this collection from the moment I saw the press release. This group consists of Six gorgeous jewel tones shimmers, glassflecks and a semi frost. This collection is by far one of my favorites to come out for fall so far.... Shall we get started? 
SOO! of course the second I started swatching the Sun decided to go away so I only have shade pics of two of the colors and the rest were done in my light box. I will be revisiting these soon in the Sun. in the pic above I am wearing my top pick from this collection Sacred Ground. This is just spectacular. It is a mix of Graphite, Purple and Gold micro glassflecks with incredible depth and dimension. This reminds me of those stones that you might find that look like they have mica in them. The formula is a solid two coater and easy to work with.

This is Rhythm of Life. This one is much Greener in person but my camera was freaking out a ton at it. This one is an Emerald tone with a slight frosty finish. It has just the slightest duochrome, but it is very subtle. It seems to shift from Green to Turquoise. This one also has a great, two coat formula.

Another stunner brought to you by this collection.... Running with Wolves is an amazing copper shimmer that is very heavily pigmented and dense. It looks like Amber sap from a tree. Just amazing!! This one also has a great Two coat formula. 

Spirit Child, a bright and bold Ruby Red shimmer with slight Golden undertones. This one is not the most unique color but biy is it beautiful. I have nothing like it in my collection. This color is insanely flattering and it also applies perfectly. This is two coats.

Instinct made my camera freak out yet again. This is much more Red. Think of an eggplant Purple shimmer and you get Instinct. This color had the most sheer formula of the Six needing Three coats to achieve full coverage and opacity. This is also another love jewel tone. I'd say close to an Amethyst Purple maybe?

Howl. I can't wait to show you Sunlight pics of this baby! This is a Blackened Brown shimmer. Does that make sense? It's stunning, sexy deep and mysterious. Another unique addition to my collection from this group. This one also has a great, two coat formula. This one reminds me of a Smoky quartz or a Chocolate Diamond.

  I am a sucker for anything jewel toned. When I look at all these colors together I see a gem for each one. A Ruby, an Emerald, Amber, Quartz.. etc... SpaRitual has really got my attention with this collection. Even though it is a Fall collection each color is vibrant and rich. I love that they strayed away from the more drab tones that I'm seeing from the other companies, which I still love, but I want variety in my shades for Fall and this collection absolutely delivers. SpaRitual polishes can be puchased at SkinCare Rx.

So which are your faves from this collection? I love Sacred Ground, Howl and Running with Wolves soo much!

  5. Sacred Ground, Running with Wolfs and Spirit Child have to come live at my house! Getting this brand however is soooo hard for me! Just amazing swatches and photos. I can see the amy shades coming through in the one that made your camera go goofy however.

  11. i could not stand it after i saw your swatches yesterday. I ordered 4 of them...and that $ was set aside for my Zoya Mirrors collection with some spoons and a couple other Zoya bottles. I just blew it. Zoya will have to wait a bit longer. I was left salivating from my mouth over your photos yesterday and really could not stand it until I got them on order!

  16. Soon as I saw these swatches I went right off and found the 4 on line (not the aqua or the purple one) and bought all 4. They look GREAT in the bottle but I am thus far underwhelmed with them on my nails...maybe when it's really fall, I will like them more? But I ADORE the Zoya Smoke & Mirrors fall 2011 collections - all 12 of 'em - not a dog in the bunch!
