Rescue Beauty Lounge Ghost Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Ghost Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as the “first appearance of the muted, twinkling stars [at] twilight.” It’s a chocolate bronze with lighter bronze and gold metallic threads of shimmer. Urban Decay Barlust has a stronger red undertone. China Glaze Street Chic is lighter, more muted, and has a cream finish. China Glaze Goin’ My Way is similar but a little richer, more molten–has more of a copper coloring. I don’t have a vast stash of bronzy shades (I learned that when trying to pull a bronze polish for our Olympic-themed post last weekend), but this doesn’t scream original–so I’d love for you to chime in with any potential dupes!
