Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “mid-violet silky shimmer.” It’s a vibrant, medium-dark grape purple with violet shimmer and pearl. China Glaze Creative Fantasy is more like a jelly, so it has no shimmer, and it is also warmer/pinker. Illamasqua Poke has subtle shimmer, but the color is pinker and lighter–not as dark as Pause.

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.

Zoya Solange Nail Lacquer

Zoya Solange Nail Lacquer ($9.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “gold metal foil sparkle.” It’s a medium yellow gold with gold shimmer/sparkle and a matte, sparkle finish. (It’s part of the PixieDust formula, which is a textured formula that mimics the look of sparkling sugar.) I don’t have any suggestions for dupes that have the same textured finish. In regards to color, China Glaze Champagne Bubbles was the closest I could think of, but obviously, the finish is quite different (and it has silver micro-glitter, so it doesn’t look the same even when you apply a top coat over Solange).

MAC Embrace Me Eyeshadow

MAC Embrace Me Eyeshadow ($15.00 for 0.05 oz.) is described as a “soft pink [with a satin finish].” It’s a bold, deepened raspberry pink with a matte finish–it may be listed as a satin, but it read very matte when I applied it! MAC More Amour is more subdued, less pink. MAC Tease with Ease is cooler-toned, pinker, and satiny. MAC passionate is barely warmer–a little brighter.

China Glaze Exotic Encounters is darker, greener. MAC Salad Dressed is a bit lighter and bluer. MAC Ocean Dip is very similar–perhaps a bit deeper. Essie Turquoise & Caicos is lighter and greener.
