Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Purple Haze Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “vivid violet,” which is an accurate depiction of this shade.  It has a cream finish, applies opaque in two coats, and has a slightly jelly-like quality to me.  In some lighting, it seems like a red-based purple, but then in other lighting, it seems more blue-based.  Purple Haze’s formula was impeccable–even flow, not too thick or thin, and no bubbling.  I typically get a full week of wear with RBL’s formula.

Butter London Artful Dodger Nail Lacquer

It’s a beautiful cream finished polish that’s opaque in two coats (one is almost enough).   Butter London’s formula on this one has a really even flow, smooth application, and drying time wasn’t long at all.  I typically get a week of wear with Butter London’s formula with a proper base and top coat.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “watery pale blue.”  It’s really a soft, pale blue with a smidgen of green that looks squishy on.  From everything I’ve read on this polish, it is a sheer shade, so it’s not expected to be opaque nor designed to be worn that way.  I wore two coats in the swatches, and I think it works best with two.  It’s not streaky like some pastels, but it will start to look uneven if you don’t let each coat dry before the next and go to three or four coats.  I think a ridge filler would be helpful here, too, to really get a flawless, sheer look.

Cult Nails Iconic Nail Lacquer

Cult Nails Iconic Nail Laquer ($10.00 for 0.5 fl. oz.) is described as a “deep berry creme with gorgeous red flakes and hidden gold shimmer throughout.” It’s a medium-dark berry red that’s dark without being vampy with ruby red reflective flakes and gold shimmer. The flakes give it more dimension and depth, and though you might think they’d make the polish uneven or bumpy, they don’t. I couldn’t feel them at all; the surface was still smooth. I used two coats to get opaque color, and the formula was the right consistency that allowed for even flow of the polish over the nail without getting too much or little polish on it. I tested Iconic out for wear, and it lasted a full week with minor tip wear.
