Rescue Beauty Lounge Abi Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Abi Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is medium-dark warm, yellowy green with pale chartreuse micro-shimmer. There wasn’t anything I could think of that felt like a genuine dupe, but the best I could come up with was Butter London Dosh, which is lighter, more chartreuse, and has much larger shimmer particles. Rescue Beauty Lounge No More War is much more of an olive green. Chanel Khaki Vert is more muted, less yellow-toned, very murky. China Glaze Peace on Earth is more olive green with gold shimmer.

Abi was opaque in two coats, and the formula runs on the thicker side but not at all problematic for it. It feels and almost looks like a cream, but there is gorgeous micro-shimmer that’s so very fine and delicate but noticeable and there. It’s been awhile since I’ve used any RBLs, but applying Abi reminded me why I keep buying them.  I don’t think I’ve missed any collections in some time, but they’re usually sold out by the time I get a chance to swatch them so then I don’t bother–I tried to start on these as soon as my order arrived.  I’ve always had great wear with the brand’s formula; it usually wears a full week with very minimal tip wear.

The color coverage is excellent, and the way this brand does micro-shimmer is exceptional. It's noticeable but just as fine as you'd expect, so it's subtle and delicate-looking.
