Vegan Polish by Soulstice Spa: Milan

Here’s a quickie post of a nail polish I picked up just before Christmas, for free from Nail Polish Canada when they were having a promotion.  Soulstice Spa is a vegan nail polish line, and somehow reminds me of PritiNYC when I look at the bottle and the shades available (just from online shots – I don’t own any Priti polishes).  Milan is a burnt, faded red with prominent golden shimmer – a perfect Fall color.  I haven’t worn it as a full mani yet because it just seems like an out-of-place shade for the season, but I may give it a shot in the Summer, as the golden tones on my (then) tanned skin will probably look quite pretty.I found that it looked more like the last two shots – a bit lighter – most of the time.  I wished it were deeper, as if you recall I’m not a huge fan of middle-of-the-road shades on my skin.  Nonetheless, this is a pretty shade with the beautiful golden cast.

The formula of this polish was insanely easy to work with; however, I found it somewhat bruskstroke-y, which is abnormal for me to come across (likely because I don’t tend to buy/wear metallic shades).  It’s not terribly noticeable, but something to think about.

Soulstice Spa polishes retail for $8.50 on Nail Polish Canada, and are 0.43oz.  All the polish names are of places in the world – they even have one called Montreal! (a metallic royal purple).

It’s Friday everyone, get happy!!  I know I am looking forward to sleeping in tomorrow BIG TIME – I did not want to get up today!

Have you tried any Soulstice Spa polishes before?

    Does it look a little like Lippmann Brick House? It’s one of those shades that I love in the fall but sort of hate the rest of the year, which is why I didn’t pick it up. I think it complements your skin tone so nicely though!

      Thanks Liz!! Yea, I think it’s similar to Brickhouse except a bit lighter. I know what you mean – these shades appeal to me in the Fall, but that’s it. All other times of the year, I’m super opposed to them. And since Fall tends to be the quickest season we have, I don’t usually go for shades like this at all because the wear-window is so short. But, thankfully, this was free, so I don’t mind ;)

...And what do you have to say about all this?? Dish! :)
