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.
