These are some Nails for a friend, she mentioned on twitter navy blue nails for Mother of the (was it bride or groom?). lol I promised I would show her samples of my idea for her nails… well I am sure I wasn’t on time with all the problems we’ve had here, but I still wanted to post the nails. I bought all the supplies for these nails at Sally Beauty, the blue is from “Finger paints” and it’s called “Margritte’s Masterpiece” #806086. The silver stripes & rhinestones also can be found at Sally Beauty.

In December I signed up for Julep Maven Membership, I received my first box for free, I just paid for Shipping, which was just under $4.00! I was surprised at how fast I received my box and the full sized products contained in it… plus the surprise addition of a couple of samples to try. The box contained so much that I was shocked, it must have contained about $60 worth of polishes, skin care and makeup.
One of the full sized products in my first box was called Blank Canvas (Mattifying Face Primer.) To tell you the truth, I worried about a Mattifying product being used on the dry areas of my combination skin. I honestly thought it was a bad choice to send to me, that is until I tried it! I couldn’t believe how my 50 year old skin got smoothed and how great my moisturizing Foundation when on so smoothly and stayed on for once, instead of soaking into my skin or accumulating in the wrinkles! I think that Blank Canvas Primer is a, wonderful product and it’s not just for those with Oily or Normal skin, it works on my combination skin… even my dry skin handles it well too! Nice to try something that I would have never even considered buying before, I love it when there is a pleasant surprise like this was!
The Kajal eye pencil that I received is call Kajal Eye Glider and it is correctly named. This two sided pencil (brown and black) goes on so smoothly it doesn’t pull at the eye. And being that it’s a Kajal it’s perfect for the waterline!
I also received Rock Star Hand Creme, this hand creme applied after washing hands, a bath or shower, really moisturizes and locked in the moisture. I love how it makes my hands look too, it makes those small wrinkles smooth out… I highly recommend applying it, like any moisturizer to still slightly damp skin so the moisture and plumping from the water is locked in.

I’d like to thank SpaRitual for this chance to review all these polishes, they are so beautiful and so much fun to wear. Please Friends, check out SpaRituals, as I said in the beginning of this review, better safe then sorry and get a polish without “The Big 3” chemicals in them. SpaRitual can also be found on Twitter @SpaRitual and their Facebook link is: www.facebook.com/sparitual
EDIT (Noon Friday July 8, 2011):
I posted this review late last night, and it’s noon today & I’ve been typing and doing housework, even opened up a soda can… not a chip or sign of wear and tear on the nails at all! I have to tell you, it’s hard for companies to make a great Vegan Nail Polish without “The Big 3” chemicals in it successfully. I have to say that I’ve bought so many of the popular pro-grade polishes out there and this one is out shining them all! SpaRitual got their nail polish right!
