Rescue Beauty Lounge Pepto Pink Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pepto Pink Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pepto Pink Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) doesn’t have much in the way of an official description, but I suppose with a name like Pepto Pink, is it really necessary? It’s a brightened, medium-dark pink with a thin consistency that’s a little streaky on the first and second coats. It needs a third coat to bring it together, though I still had some visible nail line after three. The formula didn’t do it for me, which was disappointing, because the RBL formula is often worth shelling out for, but it wasn’t here.

It’s not currently available, but since RBL has now instituted “Bring It Back,” if it is a shade that calls to you, vote for it and you may see it make a return. I picked this up when the brand had its massive 50% off sale – I’ve been slowly going through what I’ve purchased for swatching, and unfortunately, sometimes I reach for a shade that is–of course–sold out. It’s so hard for me to let the photos go to waste, though!

As far as potential dupes are concerned, I first thought about MAC Ice Cream Cake, but it much cooler in tone. Zoya’s Jolene is more neon pink. MAC Galore Pink was the closest, but it is a little brighter. Feel free to share possible dupes in the comments! :)

RBL polishes wear like iron on my nails, but the formula here makes that point rather irrelevant. It's fussier than it should be, because it needed three coats to combat both streaking and opacity issues.

    I do love the shade, but there are so many beautiful pinks out there, I feel like I could be satisfied with other pinks.

  2. I’m surprised that I cannot think of a dupe for this. Pepto pink is one of the most famous shades of pink!

  3. Noir

    I don’t like the color, I think its a bit barbie girl!

    I’m a sucker for pinks. It’s a nice shade.

    Christine, have you tried any of the new Firebird collection yet? I usually have the same type of wear as you describe but the new Firebird, chip city!

    • I haven’t – I don’t remember if I even ordered!

      Yknow, I’ve been wondering about this. I have 3 RBLs from earlier this year (Bangin, Iconoclast, and Recherch√©) that are absolutely amazing. Then I got the 5 latest bring it back shades (Purple Haze et al) and… I can’t put my finger on it, but something’s not quite right. It seems like it doesn’t QUITE flow over the nail as nicely and there’s a bit more streakiness compared to the amazing self-leveling my earlier bottles have.

      It’s nothing horrific, but it doesn’t seem right. I’m scared that it could be a teeny baby step into sacrificing quality for lower production cost. I really hope not. :(

    Love the colour. On the rare occasions I wear pink, this is my jam.

  7. beachgal

    Not a unique shade at all. It’s been done a zillion times over.

    It reminds me of the discontinued MAC Lovin’ Pink.

  9. This has a really weird milky look to it. I kinda like it.
