Rescue Beauty Lounge Yellow Fever Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Yellow Fever Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a bright, sunshine yellow with soft, pale gold micro-shimmer. The micro-shimmer is really, really faint but it catches light beautifully. It almost looks like a cream finish in lower light conditions. The first coat looked rather streaky, but the second coat made it look perfect–smooth, opaque, and gorgeous.

my thoughts on the formula: These are richly pigmented lacquers that have nuances in both the color and finishes. Each color is well-thought out, and I’ve yet to come across a poor performer in the brand’s color range. Yellow, which can be streaky and hard to work with, is excellently formulated here.

  5. Dini

    What a great color. It brings joy to my heart on this cold day. Love it!

  6. angelica

    wow, it gorgeous.

  7. It’s the yellow Lady Gaga wore for the Grammys. I originally found it a little weird, but your pictures have convinced me otherwise. It’s bright and cute without being tacky.

  8. Is opi’s need sunglasses close to this at all?

  9. Pretty yellow. I am glad to see this shade added to the RBL lineup.

    Yellows this bright just don’t look as good on cool toned skin like mine. It sucks. :(

    • I have cool toned skin too, and it’s super hard to find a good yellow or orange! Orly “Lemonade” is a cool lemon yellow, though it’s pastel and not bright it’s a color we can wear well. It’s definitely my favorite yellow polish. HTH if you were looking for one.

    • Trish

      I have cool toned skin as well and while this yellow is pretty, I’m not feeling it either. RBL has another yellow that looks cooler in tone (I forget the name though) and I may try that one instead.

  15. I think yellow looks so awesome in summer!

  16. kaydikat

    I had no idea that there’s a slight shimmer! NICE!

  17. Angela Bright

    I’m holding out for Chanel Mimosa. I love yellow!

  18. reminds me of Chanel Mimosa… oh well, yellow is not my type of color. But I’m curious how many brands are going to release a yellow nailpolish just because of Chanel

  19. taxi

    School bus! Or taxicab. Not for me, thx anyway.

  20. That is a fantastic taxi cab yellow with a bit of shimmer – delish!

  21. vikaki

  22. This is the kind of yellow I loved seeing on nails. So bright and cheerful!

  23. Morena123
