Rescue Beauty Lounge Emoting Me Collection


Today is the big day! The revealing of Rescue Beauty Lounge's new collection, Emoting Me. Below is the trailer creator Ji Baek made for the collection, and her blog post explaining the collection is here if you haven't already seen it.

First in the collection is Thank You. It's one of my favorite RBL polishes of all time, for real. What a great start to the collection, my heavens. I always try to show my gratitude and make others feel appreciated. Sometimes it really is enough to say thanks, it might make all the difference in the world to that someone. This polish is a classic naked shade of nude with an angelic pink shimmer haze. This is three coats.

Next is Be Humble, another amazing soft shade which I am head over heels with. I have a lot of experience learning to be humble and it's gradually gotten easier to remember I am just a small bit of spirit in this great big existence. This color is a soft greyed taupe with a shimmer glaze in blue, pink, and lavender. Three coats.

We all need a little Forgiveness now and again. I find myself needing to ask for it more than I would like to admit sometimes. It's a brave heart that can admit when they have done wrong and it's most definitely a lesson we all have to keep learning throughout life. This is a dove lavender opaque creme that leaves me feeling as if my nails are wrapped in soft cashmere sweater. Two coats.

And now for a Smile! I've been told more than once that my smile is infectious so I try to use it often. Even if I'm not 100%, I try to tell myself to wear a grin to show others the strength of my spirit. This color is a bright and happy pinky red with sunny shimmer bits of gold. This is two coats.

Now let's all Pause for effect... :) Remembering to take a second and take a deep breath and just be for a moment can be hard, but is oh so necessary. Those moments give us a chance to catch up, regroup, and appreciate. This vibrant violet shimmer is complex and full and quite striking. Staring into it's deepness gives me time for that necessary pause indeed. Two coats.

Our next emotive color is called Become One. I have always been an appreciative resident of the earth we live on. Us, our planet and everything together on it are all one living, breathing karmic organism out here in our spot in the universe. This bright lush green creme is a great representation of nature. This is two coats.

And last in the collection is called Turn It Around. We cannot hide away from the negatives in life if we desire to experience positives. I take comfort in the knowledge that if things go down, they must come up. This polish has a mossy green base and is exploding with copper and pinky metallic shimmer. Two coats here.

So what do you think ReBeLs? I'm incredibly impressed with Ji's vision for these lacquers and there isn't a color in the bunch I don't love. All of the formulas were spot on and flowed wonderfully onto the nail. I did notice that if i tried to use top coat right away some smeared a bit, so I would suggest to allow them dry a tad longer than normal and then to put on your top coat.

Rescue Beauty Lounge nail polishes are exclusively available at www.rescuebeauty.com for $20 per bottle. The 48 hour Pre-Order event starts on 4/12/13, then the collection will be available to the public for regular purchase at the end of April.

  1. So excited to see these swatches! Turn it Around is like a green version of Piu Mosso, which might be my favorite RBL of all time, so I think I'll be picking that one up, for sure, and *maybe* Be Humble. The others are all very pretty, but not unique enough, IMO, to justify $20/bottle.

    1. that's the first thing i thought of too! i feel like turn it around has a lot more visible shimmer than piu mosso, so that's good.

  6. Gorgeous swatches, you captured the beauty of Thank You in a way I didn't see in another swatch I saw of the polish. Now I have moved this one onto my "must have" list!

  12. TIA is giving me life right now! I think that's the only one unique enough for the price tag though.

  13. I love your swatches, Kellie, and I can't wait to see what you come up with for the blogger collection. :) I am just not sure about some of these shades. My favorite is Thank You. Be Humble reminds me so much of Essie Chinchilly, and Forgiveness looks like A-England's Guinevere.

    1. thanks Erin! my lips are sealed on that other collection you mentioned. i can neither confirm or deny i have any knowledge on the subject ;)

      be humble is a little more grey than chinchilly and has some beautiful shimmer. and i think forgiveness is more blue toned than guinevere. but you're right, they are close :)

    2. Thanks, Kellie. I think you're right about the shades being slightly different. I often succumb to the RBL gorgeousness despite the steep price tag. Plus, I have a gift certificate from Christmas. Happy feeling!
