NOTD - RESCUE BEAUTY LOUNGE AQUA LILY
For my monthly nail polish review I wanted to try something different. So for the month of February I decided to feature the Rescue Beauty Lounge line of nail polishes. I had read great things from fellow beauty and nailpolish bloggers about this brand so I was really excited to see if it would work for me.
The nail polish color I decided to review was AQUA LILY. (Please note: This polish was a gift from a dear friend for my birthday).
The brush applicator:
The brush applicator seemed a little small but it didn't hinder the application process.
From what I had seen and heard, this is the holy grail of all nail polishes. Supposedly it is one of the most coveted and hardest to find. I'm thinking it might have something to do with the intense aqua turquoise color with pink shimmers threaded throughout which makes it an extremely unique color to have.
The texture / formula:
The texture of the polish was slightly watery but due to the intense formula, the polish was almost opaque with only one application. To even out the application I did apply two coats. I noticed afterwards that this lessened the pink shimmer somewhat but it was still slightly visible.
Cost / Size:
The cost for this polish was $20.00 USD for .4 fl. oz. and can be purchased from the RESCUE BEAUTY LOUNGE website here.
Overall I really loved this polish. It had a nice formula and the application process was extremely easy. I would definitely buy more polishes from this brand. The only negatives I found were the availability of the nail polishes and the selection of colors. The more popular shades / colors were almost always sold out. Unless you trolled eBay for them and you didn't mind paying double or triple the price in which case there were plenty. The remaining selection of available colors were, I think I counted 40 or 41 of them, mostly nudes and pale pinks, several dark polishes, and only a hand-full of colorful polishes.
If you decide to make a purchase from their website then make it count. Shipping is a flat rate of $5.50 USD unless you spend over $100 and then its free. For every $20 you spend you earn 1 point and points expire after one year. I'm still not sure the purpose of the points system as this wasn't explained very well. Also, the rest of the website is a little hard to navigate so plan on spending some time getting acclimated to it.
