Glossybox, like all sample box subscriptions, are often filled with hit or miss products.
The most recent Glossybox was a pleasant surprise, containing a lot more winners than usual. There was an awesome 'complexion enhancing" Tarte lipstick, this yummy scented dry oil spray and some pretty fabulous Oscar de la Renta perfume samples.
When I saw this pumpkin colored nail polish, however, I almost immediately threw it in the trash. At first look, I thought this shade was muddy and dull. Plus, this isn't fall Glossybox! Thank god I calmed down and decided to gift it instead.
Why is it looking fabulous on my very own fingers then, you ask?
Well, that same day I chipped my new mani and needed to get nail appropriate stat. The spontaneous and ever fickle side of me decided to give this shade a shot and boy am I glad I did.
I've never tried polish from SpaRitual before and I must say that I'm very impressed. Even though Clay Creme is a rich creamy shade, the polish goes on smooth– like a sheer color would. You can always see streaking when a formula is too dry or thick, especially when I'm using my unsteady hand. But this formula was smooth and the brush was ideal for DIY mani's.
Let's not forget the color. (Boy was I wrong about this one). It's like an insta tan. It adds an earthiness to your look and is a refreshing change from all those fuchsia pinks and bright yellows.
