|SpaRitual Native Rock, Evolve collection, summer 2011|
Although this color also wasn't what I was expecting based on the website's color drops, I really like it. It's like Essie Merino Cool's summery, sun-bleached sister, a really lovely medium greyed mauve. Above is two coats.
I decided to try this one before the cream colored shade that's my favorite from this collection (Driftwood) because I wanted to see if a darker color would apply any easier. But I still had the same troubles I had with Moss. So my experience so far with SpaRitual is mediocre in terms of application. Not so horrible that I would never buy them again, but not as flawless for me as Essie or China Glaze.
When I used Moss yesterday, I used Essie base coat and top coat, and I did get some shrinkage. Today I used China Glaze base and top coats and I have a feeling this one will shrink too. Unless I put something on top of it. I'm leaning toward White Shatter.
