Rescue Beauty Lounge Catherine H

From the Tudor Housewives collection, Catherine H is a lovely and interesting shade.  It is a blue but with purple and micro shimmer ..... very different indeed.  It really is lovely and applies beautifully in two coats.  

Rescue Beauty Lounge 360

From the surfer collection this is a dusky blue that is sophisticated and funky all at once.  It has a micro shimmer that adds interest and applies beautifully in one coat.  Love it to pieces, a joy to wear and apply.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pepto Pink

Named after Pepto Bismol, this is a gorgeous glossy pink.  It is office appropriate and girly fun, and my mum liked it.  It applies smoothly in 2 coats and looks fab.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Sheer Nude

LOVE this.  Happy again after Bella.  This is Opaque Nude's lighter twin and I love it on.  It gives such a clean, shiny, polished, natural look.  It honestly made me happy all day when I looked at my hands.  A favourite and no mistake.  This is 2 coats and it goes on like butter, so smooth.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Bella

This is not a winner for me, unlike most of the previous polishes.  It was streaky and difficult to apply, and it dented and smudged long after I would expect my polish to be dry.  Also, I didn't love it on - I just wasn't happy with it, and it came off again very quickly.  It's not a waste, I will use it for gentle french tips and as underwear for the likes of bikini bottom and sheer red.  But on its own, even after three coats, I wasn't a fan.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Piu Mosso

This is a gorgeous rich vampy shade.  After I applied 2 coats and top coat, I stamped it with the plate shown, using a matte top coat for a textured look.  I liked how the final effect turned out.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily

Oh my goodness, why have I not used this every day since I got it?  It is AMAZING - the most beautiful shade ever.  The shimmer is just beautiful, so so gorgeous.  There are no words for how fabulous this is, I love love love it.
