Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack Nail Lacquer
One Sultry, Smoldering Mix of Green, Blue, and Teal
Rescue Beauty Lounge Jack Nail Lacquer ($20.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a mix of “greens, blues, [and] teals.” It’s an inky, not quite murky, green with a flash of teal and blue-teal iridescence that looks like it’s swirled in the green base color. Urban Decay Mars is similar but lighter and much, much more sparkly/glittery. MAC Deep Sea is darker, less green, and has a cream finish. Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal is blue-teal and has a cream finish. Illamasqua Viridian is more shimmery and less green (more teal). Butter London British Racing Green is greener. MAC Jade Dragon is darker and greener.
Totally opaque after two coats and nearly opaque after one, this is a really rich, intensely pigmented color. I did experience staining with this shade after wearing it for a week to test the wear. Jack had a good formula, a smidgen thicker than your average polish, but the right consistency for the brand overall. It’s thick without being problematic–it’s almost like richness than thickness (which sounds bad). The shimmer in this is very subtle under most lighting conditions, and I wish it was just a bit more amplified. When I wore this, I had very minimal tip wear after eight days and no chipping.
