KotD - Riched and Clovered

I'm feeling celebratory today. I finally got my Ancient Greek exam wrapped up and did a bit of shopping afterwards. Amongst other stuff I picked up my first bottles of p2 nail polish. Because I've done a lot of green and teal recently, I decided to give the purple one, 248 rich, a try.

Here's what I used for this manicure:

  • OPI Nail Envy
  • p2 248 rich
  • Seche Vite
  • Konad image plate m16
  • China Glaze Sci-Fi
  • Sally Hansen Diamond Shine

I started by applying two coats of Nail Envy, three of my main colour and sealing the polish with Seche Vite.
p2 rich is very nice, a dark purple with blue/red/purple microglitter, it's quite close to a glass flecked finish. It applied well, three coats are needed to get a perfectly even finish and some depth. The brush is ok, but nothing exciting; the only thing I'm not quite happy with is the drying time.

This is rich in two coats without top coat:

p2 248 rich 2C no TC

And this is rich in three coats with Seche Vite:

p2 248 rich 3C with TC

I then added the pretty, though indistinct, clover/vine design from image plate m16 with Sci-Fi on each nail and sealed the manicure with Diamond Shine. I'm very pleased with this top coat, it dries quickly and didn't smudge the stamped design. I need to try it with Konad polishes, though.
It's no secret that China Glaze's polishes from the Khrome collection work great for Konadicures, but judge for yourself. ;-)

I think rich is definitely a keeper. It's dark, it's sleek and it's funky. How do you like it?

[As small victory dance in re Essence All Access (discontinued). I now have a few more bottles for future giveaways and swaps or whatnot.]
