Another SpaRitual polish. And another disappointment unfortunately. I was looking forward to this one ever since I saw swatches of it last fall. I don't know, maybe my expectations were too high. Maybe I didn't paint my nails the way others did. I just know I didn't particularly like this when I finally wore it.
Sorry for the bad photos. And ignore my Michigan football shirt. :)
Howl is a dark brown with gold and red shimmer inside it. That sounds like an amazing combination, but to me the brown was too much. You could hardly see the shimmer unless in the right light. And even then it was very little.

The formula was okay. More thick than thin and a bit streaky. I used two coats. It dried okay. Nothing to write home about. These SpaRitual polishes are turning out to be a bummer for me. Damn. :(


  1. You are not giving me much hope for these SpaRituals. I have Howl in my untrieds.

    1. It'll probably look better on you. I don't know why this one didn't do it for me.

  2. It sure would have been awesome if the shimmers showed up.

  3. What I can see of the shimmer, it looks beautiful. It's a shame it didn't live up to your expectations.
