SpaRitual In Pink 2011 BCA Collection – Swatches & Review

Happy Pink Wednesday everybody! It’s been a while since I’ve taken part in a Pink Wednesday, but today it’s back with SpaRitual’s three polish In Pink Breast Cancer Awareness collection. This year 20% of proceeds from these polishes go to Cancer Schmancer, Fran Drescher’s organization which focuses efforts on early detection of cancer, as well as prevention.

BCA month is right around the corner, so it’s a good excuse to break out those neglected pinks in the back of your polish drawer. For me, pink polishes need something special going on, otherwise they end up on my MUA swap list or handed off to a friend. Luckily, the In Pink set has a lot of pizzazz, and I’m actually looking forward to wearing these beyond October.

SpaRitual Knowledge

Knowledge is a gritty pink glitter with a hefty amount of holo glitter thrown in and a lot of peachy warmth. The base liquid is very sheer pink, but it has great coverage at two coats. As you might imagine, removal is very messy. Glitter everywhere!!

SpaRitual Clarity

Three coats give you good coverage with Clarity, a heavy ice pink glitter with a clear base. Although you can probably spot some patches, I don’t think you’ll have this problem if you’re more patient than I was between applying coats.

SpaRitual Strength

Strength is more mature/less exciting than the other two but still quite festive. Along the same lines as Zoya Faye but pinker and a little less sparkly. It’s a smooth formula that is opaque at two coats.

These seem like great gift polishes—unusual but wearable, and they show support for a good cause. My favorite of the bunch is Knowledge, which is fun alone, or as an accent on just the ring finger worn with another color.

SpaRitual polishes are vegan and big 4-free.

SpaRitual retails at $10 for .50 oz.

How do you feel about these? Anyone been looking forward to these or any other BCA collections?
