Rescue Beauty Lounge Insouciant Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Insouciant Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is described as a “toned-down dusty gray lilac” that’s “punked out rather than pastel with the faintest hint of shimmer.”  It’s a dusty medium-dark lilac muted with gray with iridescent aqua and violet micro-shimmer.   I used two coats for opaque color, and when I wore this as a full manicure, it held up really well–a solid week and a half with minor tip wear.

This is the kind of lilac that will work well on more skin tones than more typical lilacs that lean pastel and light. I love the way the shimmer dances in the sunlight, too--it has a very subtle, reflective quality.

Product & Review FAQ

Where can I purchase Insouciant? How much is it?

Is it limited edition?

Yes.

Any dupes?

I couldn't find anything that really dupes the color that I have. NARS Pokerface has a similar finish but the purple is much brighter and lighter. Estee Lauder Surreal Violet is a little dusty but not lilac enough.

    Is RBL available anywhere else? I love your posts for them and want to see them in person :) Thanks

    • I’ve only bought them online at rescuebeauty.com! I know they are more of a niche brand, so availability isn’t everywhere (well, not in B&M stores).

      • Megan

        I am pretty sure that Ji used to distribute to a few nail salons, but now polishes are only available online and at her place.

        I’d just order it–if you don’t like it, someone on Makeupalley would probably swap with you for something you do like!

    • Evy

      RBL polishes are only available via their website and at their location in Manhattan :)

  2. You must be magic, Christine. I can barely see that shimmer IRL, I don’t know how you managed to photograph it!

  3. This polish’s name is my favorite word. =D

  4. Amy

    What a gorgeous color.

  5. Christine, you have such beautiful nails. What do you do to keep them long and pretty? Any tips or recommendations on how to grow and take care of your nails? I can’t keep mine looking good at all. Thanks so much!

  6. This looks awfully like one of the polishes from the OPI France collection.

  7. Darlene

    Oh my! Very pretty. Sadly, RBL polishes are out of my price range but I absolutely adore this.

  8. Yeah! I love this color!

  9. I have to hate you a little as you keep posing such great RBL colors. Polish has been the one thing I have been seriously holding off on spending big money on (per polish) I’m going to break soon if you keep doing these posts, though!

    I am in LOVE with Insouciant! So much that it’s the first time I’ve ever bought a backup bottle. Keep the RBL reviews coming! :)

    I love the deathly colors like these.

  12. I LOVE RBL polishes. They are my favorite polish over the $10 category. Butter London would be my second favorite. I have Insouciant on my toes and I love it. Right now I have RBL Bruised on my fingertips – I’d say it’s a chocolate, raisin shade. LOVE IT!

    This color is soooo gorgeous!!

    I have got Insouciant and looove the color, in fact it is the only purple I have ever considered adding to my collection :-)

    But it chipped already after 48 hrs on me… Could it be the Poshe base/top it don’t care for? What top/base goes well with RBL other than the RBL’s own?
