Rescue Beauty Lounge Kellie Gonzo & NailsandNoms Nail Lacquers

Rescue Beauty Lounge Kellie Gonzo Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright pink coral.” It’s a medium, rosy coral with silver and copper micro-glitter. It was mostly opaque with two coats of polish. The consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin, and I had no issues applying it. It almost looked like a jelly when I initially applied it, but it doesn’t retain the squishy look as it dries. I wish the glitter was denser, because it looks mostly like a cream at a normal viewing distance. Essie Sunday Fun Day is very similar. Rescue Beauty Lounge Smile is darker, redder. Dior Diablotine is darker, redder. See comparison swatches.

Fyrinnae Parental Advisory Eyeshadow

Edited: Fyrinnae discontinued Parental Advisory (Loose) in 2011 and reformulated it in 2012, and the current version is closer to the pressed version. (Additionally, from their description of the loose color: “Reformulated in 4-2012 but very close to the original.”) Mine is from 2011–will grab the reformulated version next time I order from Fyrinnae to compare. I unfortunately did not connect the dots that mine was pre-reformulation, so my deepest apologies!

Sugarpill @#$%! Eyeshadow & Asteria ChromaLust

Sugarpill @#$%! (Red) Eyeshadow ($12.00 for 0.12 oz.) is described as a “vampy pearl red with silver metallic sheen.” It’s a bold, slightly blue-based red with silver shimmer. The color payoff is incredibly rich and decadent–true-to-pan, vibrant, and totally opaque. It can stain the skin, though. Sugarpill Love+ is not as blue-based, matte. Make Up For Ever #99 is matte. Make Up For Ever #158 is darker. Inglot #382 is matte. See comparison swatches.

Rescue Beauty Lounge An Accidental Interloper & Fashion Polish Nail Lacquers

Rescue Beauty Lounge An Accidental Interloper Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “silver with an edge faceted by multi-shimmer hues.” It’s a darkened, charcoal gray shot through with silver shimmer and lots of it. It was opaque after two coats, and the consistency was not too thick or too thin (but thinner compared to the average polish by the brand). The formula applied fairly well and had minimal noticeable brush strokes as it self-leveled nicely. MAC Grey Friday is the only shade I have that is remotely similar, but it is more of a blackened gray with silver shimmer, but not metallic shimmer. See comparison swatches.

Chanel Alchimie, Elixir, Mysterious Le Vernis Nail Colours

Chanel Alchimie (591) Le Vernis Nail Colour ($27.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “golden khaki.” It’s a warm-toned, golden-shimmered olive green with threads of metallic shimmer. It’s warmer, more yellow-toned, than a true olive green. I used two thicker coats to minimize streakiness (thin coats produced quite a bit of that), and while it self-leveled somewhat, there was still a good deal of visible brush strokes with this shade. OCC Ripley is much darker, more blackened and less green.  The consistency seemed a little watery. Cult Nails in a Trance has less shimmer, so it appears darker. China Glaze Peac eon Earth is more metallic, warmer. China Glasze Agro is much darker. See comparison swatches.
