Who writes Beautiful Basics?

 Hi Beautiful! My name is Kassie and I’m a 27 year old from a small town in Oregon. I have a passion for all things beauty, being green, and writing which is why I started Beautiful Basics. In this blog you will find my thoughts on natural and organic beauty products as well as DIY beauty recipes and other odds and ends.

I’m not an expert or a professional but I have learned a lot about beauty and skin care by experimenting and teaching myself.

I like to keep this blog as positive as possible. I love testing out products but I only write about the ones I love.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
I hope you enjoy!


I also have a blog that chronicles my life living with chronic illness.

Talk About It - SpaRitual Gold Collection

This season every girl will be able to sparkle and shine with a little help from SpaRitual’s Limited Edition Gold Collection. For dazzling digits you can apply a couple of coats of one of six polishes from their Gold Collection. Each of the polishes in this collection is infused with real 24K gold particles! If you’re a lover of golden or metallic shades then prepare to be wowed!

SpaRitual polishes are all DBP, Toulene, and Formaldehyde free which makes them a safer and healthier option that traditional lacquers. They are also Vegan and cruelty free! Their formulas are naturally colored and free of synthetic dyes. They use ingredients from around the world like wild plant essences. The bottle itself is chic and comes with their patented Plum Cap which makes opening easier. This collection is topped with a limited edition golden colored cap.

Each shade is very easy to apply, wears incredibly well and looks great on fingers and toes. The only problem I had with these polishes is the fact that the gold shimmer was a bit hard to remove. Some gold particles remained behind after the removal process, but it was a lot easier to remove than tricky glitter polish. All in all I really like the formula and quality of SpaRitual.

There are six shades with golden shimmer in this collection so there is a shade that will suit every skin tone. The colors are aptly named as well. 

First up is Gilded Age, which is a golden pink. I have a feeling this will be the most popular shade of this entire set because rose gold is wildly popular these days. I love this color! I actually wore it on my 25th Birthday and got a ton of compliments on it. It suits my fair skin and adds a touch of color without being too much. It’s definitely one of my favorites!

My next favorite is Rusted Lux. I actually think this in my number one from this collection. It’s seriously breathtaking! Rusted Lux is a red gold shimmer that turns out looking a bit like fire. It’s so pretty! I wore this to go see The Hunger Games because it reminded me of Katniss, and her Girl on Fire costume. I’ve also worn this on my toes and love the way it looks.

Alchemy is a really nice a white golden shimmer shade. It can be built up to opacity or it can be worn on the sheer side. I think this would even work as a sort of topcoat to add golden shimmer to any nail polish. It’s very pretty!

Copper for summer with a tan sounds perfect to me, which is where Conduit comes into play. It’s a copper shimmer shade that is really interesting. It’s part copper and part gold so it’s perfectly metallic. This will be a summer favorite!

Electrum is the most interesting polish in the Gold Collection and I think you will either love it or hate it. It’s a golden green color and it’s so pretty! It won’t work on all skin tones but it’s definitely worth checking out. I like this one a lot!

Aurum is a pure gold shade. It’s a very deep yellow gold and while I love the color I’m not sure if it will love me back. 

Gold is a precious metal and now you will have access to it at the tip of your fingers for $12 a bottle. You can visit them online to learn more or purchase polish or you can use their locator to find SpaRitual near you. Do you like this collection? Which one is your favorite?
