I don’t know if you know, but there are certain polishes in nail polish land that have an impact on nail polish lovers to an extent that is comparable with the average woman and Jimmy Choo’s collection for H&M. Fandom is something the Beatles took to new levels, and these days, fashion icons live on waves of popularity. As do bloggers, and therefore, blogger-hyped nail polishes. And blogger collabs. And that is how I got to meet… Rescue Beauty Lounge.
I have a lot to say about hyped polishes (or generally hyped products), but it eventually ends in a rant about leggings. And there’s clearly no place for leggings (ever), but this is supposed to be about Rescue Beauty Lounge and what I think of the brand. Let me take away the suspense and tell you, that I really, really love the nail polishes I own from RBL. That was easy, wasn’t it?
The polish that drew me to the brand first was Halcyon. The color was created with a fan, and for me it was love at first sight. The muted sage green with pink shimmer is totally something I fall for. The formula is rather thin, so I used three coats.
Catherine H is a dusty periwinkle blue with fine golden and silver shimmer and a bit of purple shimmer. It applies nicely and evenly with two coats.
Locavore (shown here over RBL Orbis non sufficit) is a mix of golden, green, magenta and turquoise glitter in a clear base. I used one coat over the fir green base color, but if you want to wear it on its own, you should be fine with applying two coats.
Do you have a favorite out of these, or do you have another favorite RBL polish? I must say that these pictures have accumulated over time and by now, I have acquired a couple of shades more… among them the hyped shade “Scrangie”, which I’ll report on back later. In conclusion, I think some of these shades definitely deserve the hype, and the price tag is justified by the quality. What do you think?
