Rescue Beauty Lounge: R29 x Rescue Beauty Lounge Collection Swatches & Review
Hello happy faces! Lynnderella Monday will become Lynnderella Tuesday this week because I have a special post today involving Rescue Beauty Lounge! I’m so excited that I have a brand new Rescue Beauty Lounge Collection to show you! This has been a top secret collection because it’s the first time the RBL has collaborated outside of the nail polish world! And it’s with none other than the brilliant people at Refinery 29! I couldn’t wait to see what they’d come up with and man, I was not disappointed. Head over to Rescue Beauty’s blog to get all the specifics about these colors but keep on reading here to see my swatches of these pretty polishes!
“Better Than Boyfriend Jeans” is a pale blue crelly with a formula similar to RBL’s “Fire Queen” and “Oh Slap!” It is a little more muted than my camera would capture. This is an absolutely stunning pale blue! It does look like a pair of pale, faded blue jeans. The coziest color. 2 coats.
“Sunny Skies” is a glorious bright turquoise creme. I’ve been patiently waiting for a creme like this shade from RBL and I’m glad it’s finally been delivered. Such a gorgeous, creamy and happy shade. I did 2 coats.
“Pretty Gritty” has gold and copper flecks and shimmer in a dusty pinky-toned medium purple creme base. I love how strong the shimmer is in this beauty! No hiding whatsoever. Amazing formula and opacity. Almost a one-coater! I did 2 coats out of habit.
“All About Yves” is a slightly muted royal blue crelly. Very squishy and similar in formula to “Better Than Boyfriend Jeans” and similar in color to the famous “IKB 2012” which has been retired for a while now. Another amazing polish. These crelly formulations really steal my heart. I did 3 thin coats here.
Here’s a quick bottle comparison of “All About Yves” and “IKB: 2012”.
“Bubblegum Punk” has mostly silvery white shimmer with blue, green, pink and gold shimmer. So shimmery and delicate. This would be great for a french mani with a kick, over a bunch of different base colors or just on it’s own. One coat over “All About Yves”.
3 coats by itself here.
“Galaxy Glue” is a sage green with strong blue and green shimmer. This looks so nice on the nails and a perfect unexpected shade for Fall. And of course, I love the name! This is 3 thin coats.
This is an underwater shot to show the duochrome nature of the shimmer.
“Elvis In The Cloud” is a copper, gold and pink shimmery metallic with a pretty multichrome effect. Gorgeous polish. It looks like a brand new shiny copper pipe but with a bang! So luxe! 2 coats.
Lastly, an underwater shot of this beauty to show off that beautiful multichrome effect!
