Today I have the new collection from Rescue Beauty Lounge to show you, titled GOMM. This group of seven lacquers area all derived from Ji Baek's inspiration taken a famed American artist. Please read Ji's press release on this collection on her blog. Her description of the color will appear before the photos of the color swatch, then after I will weigh in with my review.
Donna: It would be insulting not to include white in an homage to "her". My challenge was to make a porcelain white or to convey bleached bones in all of its glorious opaqueness without making a streaking mess. This was difficult to achieve and Bella Donnatook the longest time to perfect, but I was finally able to produce a self-leveling second coat. I envision luscious blooms of Bella Donnain every hand gesture and blossoming Bella Donnapetals beautifully resting on your toes.
Nearby: Picture yourself standing in a strikingly sweeping and voluminous desert. A shimmery heat wave flirts with your vision, producing huddles of dancing mirages. Your eyes are tricked by a desert hallucination. The heat wave levitates and soars up into the spacious, serene, cloudless desert sky.
Road: I was offered a trip to Santa Fe when I was working on this collection, but turned it down. I wanted to capture the soul of Santa Fe solely through "her" images. This color would be an aerial view of my imaginary Santa Fe—the baked earth tones of ocher with the shimmery, glisteningly ubiquitous dotted greens.
iquiu: Clusters of brushed desert plants sway mesmerically with the wind. After a thunderous rain that cleanses off dust and sunburns, Abi quiucaptures the moment when that first sunbeam appears and flashes them with a warm kiss.
Ranch: This is the magical place that captivated "her" heart—her home. “...the shadows are long and the sun hits brightly on unexpected spots,” she wrote to Stieglitz–taken from Portrait of an Artist: A Biography of "her" by Laurie Lisle. In the twilight, the adobe casts its nebulous glow, and the mistress is on her rooftop wrapped in a Navajo blanket, walking stick in hand as she watches the first appearance of the muted, twinkling stars.
I am in love with this polish. Ghost
in the Pulpit: Her Jack in the Pulpitseries totaled six pieces. The way "she" used greens, blues, and especially that bastardized teal, put me in a hypnotic state. When I actually saw the paintings in person, the oil paint brush strokes that mixed the three colors came alive in certain lights.
OrientalPoppy: Finding yourself amongst a sea of poppy fields, you toss your bike aside to lie down for a rest to swallow and inhale the beauty. Lusciously vibrant petals bob their heads up and down with the flirting wind. As a sign of approval, the glorious, piercing golden sunlight casts a spell and what you see is the electrifying vibrancy of a mysterious red with spots of color aglow with the sun.
Pre-orders for this collection will begin the first week in June, and will be available online in July. Rescue Beauty Lounge lacquers can be purchased on www.rescuebeauty.com for $20.
