Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily was released with the Fan Collection this year, and it was sold out in a flash. I thought I’d never get my hands on it, but luckily I managed to swap for it with a very nice lady over at MakeupAlley. Fear not, though, because Ji is bringing this beauty back by popular vote, I think the BIB sale will be this November.
Prepare for some flowery language, here’s Ji’s descripton of this lacquer:
A few years ago, I was lucky enough to visit the Kuda Huraa Island of the Maldives. The turquoise water is a crystal-clear sea green and what really had me spellbound was that it reflected a shimmery-pink hue from the shedding scales of the colorful, vivid, and exotic tropical fish. This color is Kay-Di Kat’s homage to her beloved mom, Lily, who swims like an enchanting mermaid. I imagine Lily swimming in this paradise with its mesmerizing water in the Island of the Maldives.
Well, purple prose or not, I think this polish is stunning, and I’m really happy I had the chance to try it out.
The formula is nice and creamy and very easy to apply. It’s almost opaque in one coat, but I used two coats and it covers perfectly.
Will you try to get this or other RBLs in the Bring It Back sale this year?
Rescue Beauty Lounge is a new brand for me, it’s not that RBL doesn’t have a lot of gorgeous polishes, but the $18 price tag plus really expensive international shipping has put me off buying any of these. And technically, I still haven’t bought one, because Rescue Beauty Lounge Piu Mosso was gifted to me as a random act of kindness on a nail polish board I’m on. Thank you so much, K!
Piu Mosso came out in 2011 with the L’Oiseau de Feu collection, which had four polishes inspired by the hurricane Earl. It has a very dark blue base color with beautiful copper-colored shimmer throughout. It looks mostly black in regular light, but in the sun, the gorgeous shimmer really stands out.
This was very pigmented, so in theory I could have gotten away with just one coat. I used two, though, because I feel like one coat is too thin most of the time. It was also very easy to apply.
Rescue Beauty Lounge can be bought here, but unfortunately Piu Mosso is sold out at the moment. Hopefully it will be back in stock soon!
Have you tried any RBL polishes? Looking at the swatches, now I’m really lemming Poco a Poco and Aqua Lily. I’m hoping I’ll be able to grab them when Ji has her “Bring It Back” thing in November.
