SpaRitual Optical Illusion, Mattified!

Hey guys!

I have a fun treat today! Jenna from I'm Still Thinking... offered a $20 gift card to me that Apothica was offering her for one of her readers (got all that? LOL) ANYWAY, I said "yes, please, thank you!" because I have been dying to try some stuff from Apothica but have been trying to be good and not buy lots of stuff.

The Apothica website is super easy to navigate and checkout was a breeze. My items shipped quickly and they also included samples for 3 items (I don't really use samples ever so I tossed them in my sample box for swaps/trades). Also, the gentleman who contacted me regarding my gift card was very pleasant and quick to reply to my emails. I love good customer service :-) 

Anywho, I knew immediately what I wanted to order! I ordered SpaRitual Optical Illusion and Essie Matte About You, because not one single store I have ever been to carries this freaking matte top coat! Grrr.

Optical Illusion is a swampy, mossy green polish. I would call it a jelly. This was 3 coats, with a matte top coat in the last 3 pictures. This was an incredibly easy application with literally no cleanup... it pretty much applied itself! I will definitely be purchasing more SpaRitual's soon. Loved it!

What do you guys think? I like it. It's a little swampy and dirty looking, but kinda cool, right?

I only paid for shipping on this purchase, since I picked two things that were $10 each.... two polishes for $5.95 is a good deal to me :-)

Talk to you soon!
