Rescue Beauty Lounge 'Halcyon'

Hello everyone!

Have you heard of the buzz surrounding the Rescue Beauty Lounge Fan Collection? It's been all the rave since the pre-order event. I was lucky enough to have ordered during the pre-order so I just received my nail polishes today. The collection had four polishes and I purchased three: Halcyon, Aqua Lily, and IKB:2012. The one I had to wear first was Halcyon! So here are some not so great swatches and a mini review. For future reference, I posted swatches on my FB page, and I am sure the other two colors will pop up there first as well, so check it out if you haven't yet.

 Price and where to Buy

These polishes are already on sale for a limited time on the RBL site. They are $20 each (price was increased slightly). They are still cheaper than Chanel polishes and much better quality!

Review

I love RBL polishes. They are my favorite expensive polishes and I treasure each and every one of them. I was so excited for this collection and now I finally have it. Halcyon is a murky sage green with pink micro-glitter (it actually reminds me of a nail polish version of VDC's The Fett eyeshadow). The formula was fantastic. One coat was decently pigmented, and two coats gives a complete opaque coverage. The two coats dried fairly quickly and it dried to a semi-glossy finish. I suggest using a top coat for optimum glossiness.
I am very happy with this color, but I wish that the either the pink shimmer was more pronounced or that the polish had something else to make it more complex. I appreciate the subtlety of the pink shimmer, but I also want to see more of it. Other than that, it is a gorgeous shade and I am very glad I bought it.

    1. Well the glitter is much more noticeable in the pictures than in person. But regardless, it is such a beautiful shade!
