My first RBLs

Okay, so I had thus far resisted the lure of Rescue Beauty Lounge. BUT, several weeks ago they were taking pre-orders for re-releases of No More War and Scrangie. I HAD to do it. I ordered both. They were calling me.

Now... the formula on these IS just as good as everyone says. But I used Seche Vite as my topcoat with these and HOLY SHRINKAGE. I even wrapped my tips when I wore Scrangie (I NEVER wrap my tips, I'm WAY too lazy for that) and it didn't help. So when I wear either of these again, I'll try a different topcoat. Seche Vite seemed to shrink this worse than almost any other polish I've ever used.

So, of course now I want MORE RBLs. I don't, however, want to go broke, so I'll try to ease myself into a collection... one $18 bottle of polish at a time (and I usually think anything over $7ish is pricy).

Here is No More War. It's so ugly it's cute. This was two coats. I will say that the first coat was rather "eww," but it evened out beautifully on the second coat. Scrangie was the same way.

And here's Scrangie, the much-talked about polish named after the famous blogger. :D


  1. Tip shrinkage is terrible!!!!

  2. wow. those two are definitely pretty! but $18 per bottle? *gasps. =/ haha but..Seche Vite has horrible tip shrinkage...thats why i gave up on it =P

  3. I got two RBL's not long ago when they were buy one get one. I liked them.
    I like the second one best. :) I've heard a lot about that one.
    I'm not sure who has or hasn't entered BUT I'm having a brand new giveaway on my blog.

  4. I really like the purple one, but yeah...$18 is a lot for a bottle of polish. If I do get any, I'll wait for a sale. I think.... lol

    By the way, I started a nail blog. Would love to have you as a follower, if you're interested. :-)
