Beauty.com @ Erin Fetherston S/S 2012

After VPL, I headed to Erin Fetherston with the Beauty.com team to check out the hair styling by Alterna and nails by Butter London.  There were four different styles for hair, 60s inspired with a sexy-without-spending-an-hour-on-it kind of hair. My favorite was the twisted chignon with a little oomph and volume using Alterna Bamboo products in Volume Uplifting Root Blast, Volume Weightless Whipped Mousse, and Smooth Anti-Humidity Hair Spray. Butter London’s Nonie customized the nail color (dubbed “Patent Pink”) by mixing Pink Ribbon and Tea with the Queen together.

It’s really pretty crazy backstage – the set-up at Erin Fetherston was so small (smallest of all the shows I’ve been to so far).  It’s like organized chaos, I suppose, because everyone manages to get done what they need to get done in time for the show to go on.  I also want to thank everyone who recommended Cole Haan shoes, because though my feet hurt from all the walking at the end of the day, I don’t (yet) have blisters!  I’ve got a few more shows to recap, so stay tuned!

Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as “moody and mysterious dark gray.” It’s a dark, neutral gray; it looks a hint blue under really bright light but otherwise rather neutral on me (and typically, if there is blue, it becomes more obvious against my yellower skin tone). It’s not quite cement gray; perhaps more like wet or damp cement. Illamasqua DWS is similar but a little lighter. Zoya’s Dove is warmer and much lighter.

It has a cream finish, and I was able to get opaque color in two coats. The formulw as a cinch to work with, as it had a great balance of thick and thin to allow for good flow across the nail but still pack enough pigment into each coat. I didn’t have any issues with streakiness either. RBL normally wears a solid week on me with very minimal tip wear; it is one of the better wearing polishes on me (but I confess, most polishes wear a week on me without chipping).
