SpaRitual Living in the Moment (Challenge Day 6: A Polish You've Never Worn)

This may be a lie.  I might have worn this once then took it off.  And I'm still kinda on the fence about this.  I love the neutral trend for fall, in clothes, on nails, whatever.  But for some reason, this SpaRitual color is sometimes a hit and sometimes a miss for me.   I like the formula and the application was ridiculously easy (although could've done with a third coat to even out the few bald spots), and in some lights it almost looks like a very muted Parlez-Vous OPI?  But I still don't know how I feel about this...and that's probably why this was one of the first wears of this polish.  While I consider SpaRitual more of a pricier brand (around $10 in most places), I got Living in the Moment in order to cash in on a 20% off deal on one site since I was lemming A World of Compassion (swatch forthcoming on Challenge Day 18) and couldn't find another color that spoke to me.

Ugh, I nicked my index finger for this last shot when I put the bottle down.  So annoying, but after a round of swatches that night, I was really not in the mood to redo it.

What side of the fence does this color fall on for you ladies?  Hit or miss?


  1. Hit! I like it for those days I may not want to be too flashy!

  2. It's funny you girls feel so strongly about this... I still don't know how I feel. But I'm glad it got such a positive response :)

  3. Personally, I love these types of greyed-out nudes; there seems to be a hint of lavender in it as well which saves it from looking washed out. I think this one is fab!

  4. The lavender hint is what makes me think of Parlez-Vous OPI?. I think that's the one thing that's kept me from gifting this polish to someone else.
