SpaRitual – It’s Raining Men NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On March - 10 - 2012

I’ve started delving into my new acquisitions from Pro Beauty and first up is SpaRitual’s It’s Raining Men – a swirl of pastels that look, at least to me, like a big cupcake-y nebula.

Comprising blue, pink and gold – on my nails, you mostly see the pink throughout the day.  I enjoyed messing with Leila’s head “what colour is it Leila?”

“Pink! No, it’s blue! Wait…”

Three coats will give a solid opacity, I was expecting to need more for this kinda of multi-chrome paleness but three covers admirably.  Any tip wear doesn’t really show too obviously and I didn’t get any chipping after even three days (with a top coat).

It’s Raining Men is available to buy online, priced at £8.50 with free shipping

  1. Oooh pritty, but too pale for my boiled beef lobster handed vileness. Sadly.

    I have a similar colour from No7 (but I suspect it was a very old LE colour as I have picked it up at a boot sale and havent seen anywhere else, not even ebay/discontinued make up sites),and its undoubtedly pretty, but takes ages to dry and is sheer!
    To me it looks very much sky with pink clouds that you get at the dawn, so sweet!

    I love your description, “cupcake-y nebula!” I’ve waffled on purchasing this almost every time I browse bloom.com, this may be the best photo of this polish I’ve seen.

    What top/base coats did you use? I get shrinking on my SpaRituals and I’m trying to figure out what the culprit is.

  4. Oooh I like! Really pretty colour. Never tried any from this brand – might start with this. x

    Now this is a colour I can get on board with, what a beaut!

    When I was a small human, my parents used to respond to questions like ‘what colour will it be?’ or ‘what colour was it?’ with the answer ‘sky blue pink with yellow polka dots’. I do believe this is EXACTLY what they meant by ‘sky blue pink’. All this time I thought they’d been taking the piss!
