Ahhh, yes! I’m back to wearing a colour that’s totally in my comfort zone. My how I’ve missed you, Green! It’s ludicrous how I went so long without sporting my favourite colour.
Now all is right with the world. 😉 *Content sigh*
SpaRitual Earth Matters is from the 2011 Earth Day Duo that I had to buy from the minute I laid eyes on it.
This glitter polish is a winner in my book, and if you stumble across it, I strongly recommend you purchase it. Earth Matters has made it in my Top 10 Green Nail Polish List…and considering that I have tons of greens, that’s saying something!

SpaRitual Earth Matters Review
Earth Matters by SpaRitual is so dazzling, I literally stared at the bottle for a full minute after I purchased it. And then when it was on my nails, haha, I kept looking down throughout the day and smiling sheepishly to myself.
The base is a rich evergreen that’s light enough so it doesn’t look black, even in dim artificial cubicle lighting. But it’s the glitter that brings the fire!
The glitter is green and yellow-gold. They blend well together, but when you inspect your nails closer, you’ll see the distinctly different hues pop out. Very well-coordinated!
Since Earth Matters by SpaRitual is a glitter polish, there is noticeable texture. To get a completely smooth glass-like finish, you’ll need to apply more than one layer of top coat. I, however, just used one coat, and it was smooth enough for me. (It wasn’t really scratchy or sharp.)
Also, keep in mind that this polish tends to eat top coat. That means even if the polish looks really smooth after you’ve just applied the top coat, in about an hour, it’ll have soaked it up like SpongeBob SquarePants in a glass of water.
Application & Formula
The formula on this was excellent. Sometimes dense glitter polishes can be really thick and hard to apply, but not Earth Matters! The formula was perfect, it was easy to apply, and even with a single coat, you get great coverage. You do, however, need to use 2 coats if you want to completely cover your nails.
Also, all SpaRitual lacquers are free of DBP, Toluene, Formaldehyde & Formaldehyde Resin, in case that’s a concern for you.
Rubberized Handle & Packaging
SpaRitual nail polishes feature a rubberized handle with ribbing, which makes it easier to control the brush and paint your nails.
And the bottle shape is round and so classy. I love SpaRitual polishes because they always look sophisticated and clean.
Final Verdict: 10/10
Earth Matters by SpaRitual is a green-lover’s nail dream come true. The colour is interesting and the formula is easy to work with. This has become one of my all-time favourite green nail polishes to wear, so I highly recommend you track this one down! 🙂
