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!

Revlon Radiant (Blue Mosaic) Nail Lacquer

Revlon Radiant (Blue Mosaic) Nail Lacquer ($4.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is a blue-tinted clear base with blue glitter and larger green, silver, and blue hexagon-shaped glitter. It totally reminded me of the glitter in Deborah Lippmann–if you used Radiant (Blue Mosaic) over a blue-black base, you’d get pretty close to the overall shade. The major difference is Radiant has a mostly clear base, while Deborah Lippmann is a colored (opaque) base. That would, of course, make Radiant more versatile, since you could layer it over any number of polishes.

Guerlain Sable Show (851) KissKiss Lipgloss

Guerlain’s fall collection is just starting to pop up on retailers now (but so far, I’m seeing back-order dates, so it’s more like a pre-order). I’m excited, because I picked up Gilda and Bonnie Rouge Gs and Grenade (another Kiss Kiss Gloss shade). For now, though, let’s take a look at Guerlain Sable Show (851) Kiss Kiss Gloss ($32.00 for 0.20 fl. oz.), which is a warm champagne-shimmered beige-peach. It has some multi-colored shimmery bits and bobs, but it is predmoinantly pale champagne–almost white in some lighting. Dior Satin Peach is milkier and has gold shimmer. MAC Naked Space is more opaque, milkier. Hourglass Imagine is similar but also has gold shimmer. Dior Twin Set Pink is similar, a little paler. MAC Jana has a similar look on lips, even though it seems colorless. There’s a smidgen more shimmer content that tends to make it a little more than sheer lipgloss, but it’s still more similar than not.

China Glaze Splish Splash is cooler-toned, bluer. Deborah Lippmann On the Beach is a smidgen lighter and has no shimmer. NARS Koliary is barely lighter and has no shimmer. Zoya Phoebe is fractionally darker and has a matte finish. Zoya Robyn is just a wee bit lighter and has no shimmer.
