Oh, Lustress, how I love thee! This is one of my new polishes I ordered from the Apothica website. I had such high hopes for this polish, based on the very limited swatches I`d seen, but was a bit nervous that I`d be let down when it arrived. You never really know when all you have to go by is online swatches. Especially if those swatches are limited. I`m thrilled to say that I am not in the least let down! Lustress is part of SpaRitual`s Kaleidoscope collection from 2010. I believe this was a summer collection. This polish is stunning, in my opinion. It is a rich coral-pink shimmer. Well, they`re calling it a shimmer, but to me it looks like a foil finish. It is flecked with a brilliant pink. I just can`t stop staring at my nails.. and this is coming from someone who typically isn`t a huge fan of pinks. Tinge it with coral, though, and I`m a fan! This was my first time using a SpaRitual polish. If all of the rest apply like this one then I am hooked. It does have a very small brush, but that didn`t cause any problems. It was a soft, flexible brush so it splayed out nicely. The formulation was perfection. It went on like butter and didn`t pool or goop up. This is one of the easiest to apply polishes that I have used in quite some time. I found Lustress to have pretty good pigmentation. I could have stopped at one coat, but there would have been a bit of visible nail line. I am wearing two coats in these photos. That made it perfectly opaque. I really don`t think you need to go beyond two coats. This seemed to have good drying time, as well. Even before I applied my Seche Vite, I tested one nail and it had already started to set. I wouldn`t say it was enough to keep from being dented if I shoved my nail into it, but it didn`t stick to and pick up on the pad of my finger when I poked at it, like a lot of other polishes would have done. I have one other SpaRitual polish that I ordered and still need to try out. I`m hoping I love that one just as much as I do Lustress. If so, I may need to order more of these babies. I really do understand now why everyone raves about SpaRitual polishes. They`re A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!
