NOTW: Sparitual "It's Raining Men" & Ciate "Jewel"

Both of these polishes I bought at Sephora a little ways back but the photos just got lost in my computer. I found them though and I decided to share it with you this August evening :)
Sparitual is a brand that I've heard a lot of good things about but just had NO idea where to get them. Apparently I could've bought them at Sally's this entire time, but they recently became available at Sephora so I browsed on their store online (they're not available at my Sephora yet) and then saw the crappy swatch of this polish. And then I googled it and I was in love.
It's Raining Men is a sky blue with slight purple undertones that has a very strong peachy orange duochrome! The formula is pretty good - I used 3 coats and got full opacity, but the polish isn't thick so it doesn't feel heavy with three coats.
The same story goes for Ciate - it was a British brand that I couldn't get here until they started selling at Sephora. I had seen them on Pixiwoo first, and wanted the bright red but didn't know anything else about them until I saw the glitter Adele wore to the Grammy's. I decided my first Ciate polish should be the glitter, so I bought Jewel. 
Jewel is a slightly thick, holographic bar glitter. I used 2 coats to get that nice, coat that looks like a fuzzy, diamond rainbow from far away.
I used Nubar Foundation Base Coat and Seche Vite as base and top coats and this manicure lasted about a week.
Ciate polishes are slightly more expensive at $15. They have a Chanel Peridot dupe, by the way.
Sparitual polishes are $10 at Sephora.
