Rescue Beauty Lounge Recherche Nail Lacquer

Rescue Beauty Lounge Recherche Nail Lacquer ($18.00 for 0.4 fl. oz.) is a new and limited shade from the Iconic/Ironic Collection. It’s described as “a purplish dark brown.” I almost re-took the photos for this polish, because on my desk, it looked rather brownish when I peeked at it from the corner of my eye, but upon closer inspection, it does have this purpled murkiness.

It looks like muddied eggplant purple in the bottle, but on nails, it’s much more sophisticated than that. The subtle red undertones seemed to pull out quite a bit for me, despite my warmer skin tone, but it gave it a brightened quality that added interest. It’s a smoky, blackened eggplant with a little red, little brown.

my thoughts on the formula: These are richly pigmented lacquers that have nuances in both the color and finishes. Each color is well-thought out, and Iโ€™ve yet to come across a poor performer in the brandโ€™s color range. I used two coats for opaque coverage.

OMG you continue to amaze me with your creativity and dedication to your readers — I LOVE the new rating system!!! Thank you for taking the time to add those few but very significant details!!

I like this one much more than I expected to from the bottle pictures. It IS really sophisticated. However, does it look black in most lighting? I hate when polishes do that!

absolutely gorgeous color!

side note: i know you have to have ads on the site, and i don’t mind them at all normally, but that kiss eyelashes one that pops over the screen is SO annoying. And frustrating when you are trying to read and it pops right over!

Hannah,

The ad should only roll over if you mouse over it – but if you don’t, it shouldn’t automatically roll out! We don’t allow automatic rollovers or audio/video play.

Then please screen shot and include the link so that I can try to address it – they are not supposed to come through, and I’ve never seen any myself. Please help me help you! I can only report/attempt to mitigate ads if I know what ad and the outbound link (where it goes to). Ads are very, very dynamic, so what you see is not necessarily what I see.

Haha! It’s true about the reflection! I like it, actually! I really do need to find a way to get my hands on this brand (and to get it on my hands). This colour is just stunning. On a side note, I really like the new evaluation format- super easy to read!

Looks a lot like Rimmel’s Purple Rain, which Ive been wearing as a black-alternative. I got mine for 2.49 on sale at Lawtons.

Wow, I’ve seen tons of swatches of this and, until now, I’d been rather uninterested in this shade.

I really love your nail swatches even though you’re not a nail blogger!

What happened to the “value” category as value for the money aka price point? Or was it not there before. I remember seeing it or was that on another blog. I apologize if I’m wrong.
