Sparitual - I Am The Light

I am the light of the world, I believe is the original quote.

Sparitual. A gorgeous brand! They put out small boutique collections with colors that are not super unique, but eclectic.
I've worn Illume, an Orly Charged Up dupe, and must say the formula was a little bit nicer than the Orly version. It kind of sold me on the brand. And with Orly playing hard ball on pricing, why not go for the beautiful Sparitual bottles?

Sparitual's I Am The Light is from the Spring 2010 collection, Believe.

I Am The Light is a dusty mauve-y lilac. A little less exuberant and a little more modest than a lot of other ones I've got. It really almost looks pink in my photos.

There is a topcoat, that was a little thick and hence some bubbles were caught inside the clear part.

I think my camera skills kind of got me, I had bright bright bright sun, which was blowing out the shot, then I turned down the brightness, and might have squashed it too much, so now I've got this darkish looking pair of photos. I didn't want to twiddle too much in Photoshop Elements, so I kind of left it the way it was.

I've since put a few top coats on it, sorry no photos, but if you have this polish, get Pure Ice Busted and try it out as a layering top coat: killah!
Also, if you have Milani's Glitzy Lilac, try it on for size, very pretty!!!

Thanks so much for reading my little nail polish journal!!


  1. this is such a great color, and the bottle is sooo lovely!
    I'm a new follower :)

  2. I bet your right, or a a flaky might look awesome with this too.

  3. I LOVE this. This is my favorite color. It looks great on you. I don't own any of that brand yet.

  4. Hey all! Thanks for the comments! Welcome new followers!!

    I agree that a flakie would be very nice, it's like the perfect kind of top coat. Scary good!

    Try it, Susie! I just got a couple from the new collection for fall, the dark purple with the blue flash is so nice!

    Glad you enjoyed the post, apologies again for the dim photo!

  5. I don't have any of this brand. Last week I was going to buy a bunch of them and then changed my mind. This is a gorgeous shade and it's on my list.

  6. They are sometimes on Ideeli for about $2.50 a bottle. But, they are normally about $8.50 a bottle with the 15% coupon from Avenue You.
    Still, that's steep for me, so I don't have many!
