Sparitual is a company that does spa products including a wide range of lovely nail varnish/polish that are vegan and eco-friendly, meaning that they do not test their products on animals or use animal by-products in their formulations.
Their nail polishes are 100% DBP, toluene and formaldahyde free. DBP, or dibutyl phthalate, is a plasticizing ingredient that is banned for use in cosmestic products in the European Union.
This is their first varnish I've tried as I needed a new top and base coat and what more than having both in one bottle! It retails for around £8.95 for 15ml of product which I don't think is bad at all!
I like the fact that the handle is rubber so it enables you to grip and control application more easily. The texture of the polish is just neither too thick or runny - just perfect!
I've used this with all my nail polishes now and I can say it does work well as both base coat and top coat. It does the job in adding shine and vibrancy to the polishes and also making them last longer.
Yes nail polish does still chip when using this to seal them, but I don't mind because it only starts chipping after about 5-7 days depending on how rough you are with your hands and feet! I find that it chips more on the nails on my foot. It also still has the strong nail polish smell - but not as strong & pungent as other cheap nail polishes out there.
Overall I'm really happy with this product and I use it all the time. I would definitely recommend this for those who are more aware of what they buy and are into all the ethics of a company. For those looking for a top coat that will make your polish last a very long time - literally chip resistant, you're better of buying base and top coat separately rather than 2 in 1.
