Rescue Beauty Lounge Faraway Nail Lacquer
Cloudless Skies Aren’t Such a Faraway Dream
Rescue Beauty Lounge Faraway Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “serene, cloudless desert sky.” It’s a warm, welcoming light-medium sky blue with softer aqua blue micro-shimmer in a very creamy finish. China Glaze Splish Splash is cooler-toned, bluer. Deborah Lippmann On the Beach is a smidgen lighter and has no shimmer. NARS Koliary is barely lighter and has no shimmer. Zoya Phoebe is fractionally darker and has a matte finish. Zoya Robyn is just a wee bit lighter and has no shimmer.
The consistency of Faraway is just slightly thickened, but it is incredibly pigmented–two coats is totally opaque, but it’s very nearly opaque after one. There was very slight pooling along the side if you’re not somewhat mindful about how thick a coat you’re using. The play of the micro-shimmer seems to be a real hallmark of a Rescue Beauty Lounge polish–it is for the person who loves a hint of shimmer but never wants it to be the first thing you notice. For someone who prefers lots of shimmer, this won’t be noticeable enough for you. I typically get a full week of wear with no chipping and only very minimal tip wear out of the brand’s formula–it’s one of the longer-lasting formulas I’ve come across.
