SpaRitual Inner Sanctum & Konad S6

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    Today I have one from the vault for you, a manicure I did after some swatches in the past week. I like Chanel Dragon too much to change in. For the record, I'm finding it's wearing really well over Nu Nails, too - not a bit of tip wear or a single chip.

    The manicure you have not seen yet started with a base in SpaRitual's Inner Sanctum, from the Forbidden Collection, which is a light brown creme. It required three coats to be even and opaque, but was no big deal because SpaRituals tend to have a good dry time and the cremes have a great shiny finish, so it's worth it. Here is three coats with a top coat.

    To it, on my quest for a subtle Konadicure, I added the woven pattern from plate S6 using Chocolate Konad Princess Nail Polish. I found that the Chocolate was a bit thin by Konad polish standards, although well pigmented, and left streaks on the plate. I saw right away they'd show up in pictures, but not walking around. I liked the color, so I used it anyhow. Here is the finished manicure.

    By the time I finished my right hand, I got a handle on the Konad polish, and I really like it, so I'll use it again.

    I may have more in store for you later, Dear Reader. I just don't have the heart to take off Dragon right now! Until then, love and nail polish to you!
