Rescue Beauty Lounge - Spongebob Collection

Hi kids! Who lives in a pineapple under the sea? SPONGEBOB SQUAREPANTS!!! It would only be fitting that one of my favorite nail polish brands would put out a collection inspired from my favorite cartoon ever, I can't tell you how much I love this trio of lacquers. Rescue Beauty Lounge put out three colors inspired by the adorable sponge creature from the popular children's TV show back in 2008. I can't believe it's been that long ago! Crazy huh. Anyway, I just barely got all three shades so I had to show them off for ya!

First is Square Pants, a pineapple buttery yellow sheer with a hint of sparkle. Now you all know that I love me some yellows, and this one is no exception. It's unique to my collection in that it's a translucent finish, not really a jelly, but not meant to be opaque naturally. I layered on three coats. I love how delicate and soft this is and it makes my fat lumberjack hands look feminine!

This is Bikini Bottom, a watery blue appropriately named for the "city" that Spongebob lives in under the sea. I really am gagging over how soft and light this is! Any color that comes close to it that I have is either greener, darker, or an opaque cream. This milky jelly looks positively squish-tastic! This is four coats.

I've shown you Starfish Patrick in the past, but I won't link to the post because it was forever ago and my photography and manicure skills were horrendous haha. This is a really special color, I adore it! Oranges and corals are my absolute favorite shades and this is a good combo of both of those. Melony peachy coral jelly, yum! This is four coats.

Sadly only two of these three are available for purchase right now, Square Pants and Bikini Bottom. But Ji Baek does a "Bring it Back" vote every year to produce more bottles of sold out shades, so it might be possible to snag Starfish Patrick one day if you don't already have it. Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes are sold on their website for $18-$20 each.

Some of the products mentioned were provided for review.

  7. That is so expensive for colors that require tons of coats for opacity. Cute though.

  8. Those are really pretty. And even though I'm not a yellow fan I would actually give that a try. It's not crazy obnoxious :P

  13. Oh no...you've created a lemming for Starfish patrick and it's not available anymore! Buah...Anyway, do you know of any similar shade, as long as it's a jelly/semi jelly/not so saturated creme? Why didn't I see this color before?????

  15. I just picked up Bikini Bottom last week! That's funny that you would review them now. I had been looking for a sheer blue since the OPI NYC Ballet collection was lacking a sheer blue and I kept needing one. Just happened to run into this one on a 'deal.' It is sheer but will be fab for the jelly sands. I want to use it to make with silver and gold sparkly things - plus I am thinking of trying Nubar Black and White Polka dot polish in the middle layer with this one shade as those Nubars are matte 'glitters.'

  20. Omg, I was *JUST* telling my daughters that there was a Spongebob NP collection out from a while back. And then you do a post on it! You're awesome :) Now I can just show them this post. And your hands/nails are gorgeous, what are you talking about? lol

    BTW a week or so ago, I saw a car with a license plate that said "GONZO"--I thought about snapping a pic & sending it to you, and then I thought that may be a little weird of me! :D

    Have a good weekend!
