Rescue Beauty Lounge: Frugalista

With the RBL sale just around the bend, I figured I’d post reviews of the remaining shades I own!

Rescue Beauty Lounge Frugalista Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.4 oz.) is a clear base with fuchsia-purple and bright silver glitter. I think this is actually my favorite of the three glitter polishes from RBL. It’s flashy without being over the top. It would look even better on cooler skin tones, though I still love to wear it myself!

It takes me a full three coats to get a fairly opaque result, and it’s important to use less brush strokes so you don’t displace the glitter. I also recommend being patient and letting each coat dry a bit. And yes, you’ll need a good polish remover and patience to remove it, as it is a glitter polish.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 8/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

RECOMMENDATION: This is definitely my top pick for cooler skin tones!

    I love the look of glitter polishes, but they are really a pain to remove so I rarely wear them.

    So gorgeous!! Not digging glitter polishes that much, but this one looks very pretty. It’d be good to go clubbing in Vegas lol!

  3. Oh my gosh I love this!!!

  4. Federica

    I want Frugalista!! Do you know where I can find this in Europe?!

  5. The glitters are amazing, very beautiful …

  6. Elysia

    pretty, but i could find the exact thing for way less

  7. Tiffany

    Christine, did you make a purchase during their 50% off sale?

  8. Cintamani

    did you get any polishs during their sale? i snagged quite a few but sadly the two i really wanted were already sold out in the first few minutes!

    Where does a brand that sells $18 nail polish get off calling a shade “Frugalista”…are they serious? It’s lovely. But come on!

  10. Ashley D.

    I love these!

  11. Taryn

    Frugalista reminds me a LOT of Sephora by OPI’s Bouquet With Me… I’d suggest the latter for people who want this polish at a more affordable price ($9 as opposed to $18)!

  12. I love this one! It must be the most beautiful shade I’ve seen this season and it’s perfect for the holidays. :)

  13. Ket

    Oh my word – amazing glittery heaven! I’ve gone a bit mad this year with the glittery nails – but these just take the biscuit! Gorgeous.

  14. Wow wow wow ! So awesome !
