Can You Find the Gold Shimmer in the Field of Poppies?

Rescue Beauty Lounge Poppy Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “sea of poppy fields.” It’s a bright orange-red with very, very subtle gold micro-shimmer. Essie Too Too Hot is redder. Rescue Beauty Lounge Chinoise is darker, redder. Rescue Beauty Lounge Bangin’ is a smidgen lighter, more coral. Deborah Lippmann Supermodel is a shade redder. Orly Retro Red is a ltitle lighter and more orange. MAC Scorcher is less bright, less red.

Micro-shimmer can be gorgeous, because it can look subtle, sophisticated, and add depth to an otherwise cream-like finish.  However, it can also be overpowered and lost, and I think that’s the case here (which is a personal, subjective observation that does not impact the rating).  The color is so vibrant and rich that the amount of gold micro-shimmer just fades away.  Even under bright light (like diffused flash), it’s barely detectable. Poppy was opaque in two coats, and the formula wasn’t thick at all. It had a good balance of thick and thin, so it flowed and applied beautifully and evenly.  I typically get a full week of wear with Rescue Beauty Lounge’s formula with no chipping and very minimal tip wear.
