Rescue Beauty Lounge Turn It Around Nail Lacquer
Rescue Beauty Lounge Turn It Around Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Turn It Around Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “dark mossy green pond [with] a vivid, glittering cast of copper shimmer.” It’s a subtly warm-toned, olive green with flecks of copper shimmer and sparkle. I felt like my yellow undertones pulled the warmth out of this polish a bit, and if you have a cooler complexion, it may not look as warm-toned. I couldn’t think of any shades that really came close to this one. SpaRitual Lithophonic is darker, not as warm-toned, and doesn’t have copper shimmer (it has green). Cult Nails In a Trance has a similar green base color but different shimmer (both in size and color). Both China Glaze Westside and Zoya Dree are creamy, olive-ish greens, with Dree being closer in tone but lighter overall–neither have shimmer so I suggest these as a base option if perhaps you have a coppery top coat you want to try pairing it with. Rescue Beauty Lounge No More War is a cream polish (no shimmer), and its base color is a little lighter and more olive.

It’s fully opaque after two coats, and if you do thinner coats, you’ll probably need three. The consistency was a little on the thin side, but the polish still applied fluidly, evenly, and smoothly. I didn’t have any trouble with it streaking, bubbling, or pooling along the edges of the nail when I applied it. It dries down to a naturally shiny finish, and the polish feels smooth to the touch. The drying time was about average. Rescue Beauty’s formula wears very, very well on me with a full seven days of wear with very minor tip wear.

Turn It Around

A+
Turn It Around is certainly unique within the polishes that I've come across, which is always a plus! It applies well, had good color payoff, and generally, I get excellent wear out of the brand's formula.

    It reminds me a but of Mac Mean & Green

  2. I love how khaki/green it looks on you! Knowing my skin tone, I’ll probably pull a lot of khaki/green out as well (which I am super happy with)!

  3. It’s so interesting! Possibly one of the most intriguing shades I have ever seen, and I mean it.

    I love how unique it is, and while it’s very pretty, it’s just not a shade I’d wear. The formula looks incredibly rich, too.

    This is so unusual, and I can’t decide if I like it or not! I do appreciate that it’s such a different shade though.

  6. YES – this is my taste. But I like to wear these sorts of colors more during Autumn.

    I’m a redhead… and my name is written alllllll over this color!

    I just got mine yesterday and realized it reminded me of Picture Polish Mallard, except a bit lighter and with copper shimmer instead of flakies. Still love it, though! I hope you’ll be reviewing more shades from this collection – I didn’t preorder Smile and Pause because I thought they’d be the most easily dupe-able, but I’m still thinking about them :-)

  9. Tigress

    This is amazing, and nail polish rarely catches my eye.

  10. It’s sparkly poo !

    teehee

    I want to love RBL, but I have so much trouble with the formula. I get tip wear the very next day when usually I don’t get tip wear for at least 4-5 days.

    Either way, the color is awesome!

    • What a bummer! Definitely not a brand worth splurging for if it wears away so quickly on you! :(

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sulee sue

      I get a lot of tip wear with RBL too, but their formula is so easy to apply and the colors are unique. It makes me tolerate the tip wear (and the price).

    I can appreciate how unique it is, but I really just don’t like the color.

  13. Nekona

    It is such an odd color I can’t decide if I like it or not! XD

  14. OMG how beautiful! What an interesting shade! And the formula…it all looks amazing! :D

    Also known as Pond Scum

    • Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Brenda Brenda

      lol – I had pond fish and it totally looks like pond scum! heeheehee!!! I still think it’s pretty with the sparkles tho (the polish, not the scum)

  16. Oh, man! I love a good weird color :D

  17. Kristy

    It looks like sunlight shining on swamp water. And I mean that in a good way!

  18. Wow, crazy color. I can’t decide whether I like it or not!

  19. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Quinctia Quinctia

    This is a like…a slightly chunkier shimmered dupe of some ugly khaki-esque polish I bought in the late 90s.

  20. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Malia Malia

    Oh so unique! But it looks like that stuff that floats on top of water, like in the sun lol . Kinda ew but kudos for uniqueness!

  21. Zainab

    It’s got a kind of 70’s vibe to me, I can picture some lady in flares and a bad haircut swooning over this. Kind of reminds me of my Grandparents house: olive green walls and golden orange shag carpeting. Why do designers keep reviving 70’s ‘style’ again?

  22. Profile wp-user-avatar wp-user-avatar-60 alignnone photo of Sasha Sasha

    A similar finish while not a similar color is Butter London’s Two Fingered Salute. It has a similar copper overlay but a light blue base color. It’s one of my favorite polishes. I’ve been considering grabbing it because I like the finish on TFS but I’m not a huge fan of dark green polish and I already have RBL’s Jack and Anne. Thanks for posting the swatches!

  23. Oooh! A must get! Such a unique color.

  24. Catherine

    Honestly this just looks like shimmery diarrhea to me…
