Sparitual Nomad (and comparison to Butter London Wallis)

Hi there polish friends!  I hope your weekend is off to a good start.  I'm definitely in a much better mood this morning.  I hadn't slept for a week so I called the doctor's office yesterday and they recommended I basically drug myself with benedryll before bed haha!  I did that last night and ended up sleeping 12 hours last night.  It felt so good :)  

Today I have a unique polish to share with you, one my mom and I both got on our little excursion to Ulta on Wednesday.  Besides yesterday, that's the only time I've been out all week.  My mom first spotted this polish and I thought it was such a unique color.  Let's take a look below.

Sparitual Nomad is my first experience with a Sparitual polish and it was quite a pleasant one.  My mom and I both got a bottle of this same polish, which is a brown leaning green base with a strong pink shimmer.  Another unique quality to this polish is that is dries to a matte finish.

The formula was nice and opaque and great to work with on this polish.  I had no problems whatsoever and I used two coats with no topcoat below to maintain that matte finish below.

Below is a swatch with topcoat and I think this looks really pretty.

Below I have a comparison with Butter London Wallis.  On the first coat, these looked really similar.  When I applied the second coat, it was much more apparent that they were different.  Butter London Wallis leans much more green and dries shiny.  Sparitual Nomad has a browner tone, it also has that pink shimmer, and dries matte.

Here are the bottles next to each other for reference.

What do you think of this polish?  I was quite impressed and really enjoyed it.  I already have my eye on a second Sparitual polish that I want to try :)


  1. Its pretty! Like seeing the comparison with the Butter London one too. Haven't tried any Sparitual polishes myself.

  2. Nomad is beautiful, and great comparison! Now I know my collection has room for it even with Wallis..Bahahaha. *Sigh*

  3. Wow this shade is stunning! No sleep for a week??

  4. Great post! I've been wanting that Sparitual and already have Wallis. So glad they are different enough that I can get it! :)
