Rescue Beauty Lounge Sheer Nude Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Sheer Nude Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as an “ultra sheer stocking.” Ji says it will give your fingers a sleeker look and the right color to wear for an interview. On me, it’s almost like a peachy beige cream, though it does have the faintest micro-shimmer. The shimmer is barely detectable, even under brighter light. In two coats, it’s opaque, and though it seems to take a little longer to dry than other polishes (including Rescue Beauty Lounge’s), it does dry to a rather shiny finish without requiring a top coat. The consistency was workable but felt a little thicker than I’d like. The color itself reminded me of MAC Hangin’ Loose.

Nubar Midnight Glory Nail Lacquer

Nubar Midnight Glory Nail Lacquer ($7.49 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a duochrome-finished shade. It shifts from blue to gold to pink, while the polish itself is very sheer. I swatched showing three coats, and there is still a lot of visible nail line. The base color is more of a robin’s egg blue while the shimmer is pink, copper, and almost gold. The base color isn’t as opaque or as intense as Nubar Blue Hydrangea but bluer than Chanel Riva. I don’t have anything like this, because of the duochrome finish.

Nubar Pink Flame Nail Lacquer

Nubar Pink Flame Nail Lacquer ($7.49 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a red and orange duochrome. First it’s a vibrant, pinky-red, then it shifts to a coppery orange. I love the intensity of the polish; it’s so vibrant that it looks like it glows, which is difficult to capture in a photo! It’s shimmering without being metallic or overly frosty. The formula was a good balance between thick and thin, so the polish flowed easily and evenly across the nail and yielded opaque results in two coats. I usually get a full week of wear with minimal tip wear with Nubar’s polishes, including Pink Flame, which I tested a few months ago (and yes, only just reviewed now).

China Glaze It’s Alive & Ghoulish Glow Swatches, Photos, Reviews

Want a SPOOKTACULAR manicure? I couldn’t resist. :) I just had the chance to play with the Halloween kit, which contains one real color shade, two layering coats, and China Glaze’s Fast Forward Top Coat. I bought the other new color shades but am waiting for them to arrive still (boo, west coast!). The kit I have includes the top coat but there’s one available at Sally’s ($12.99) that also includes Cross Iron 360 instead of the top coat.
