Rescue Beauty Lounge 'Aqua Lily' is a bright aqua blue with a subtle fuchsia shimmer (similar to the one featured here). The formula was quintessential RBL: easy to apply and nicely opaque in two medium coats. RBL's can have issues with certain qdtc's, so this time I tried using Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat and it seems to be cooperating as the picture below is day 3 with no wrapping and I've some tipwear but no real chipping. This would be a ho-hum color if the shimmer did not give it an interesting amount of depth. I think that this color would be nice as jewelry.
Taken with flash. Unfortunately, this is one of those colors that gives me lobster hands. T-T I've seen dupes of this using turquoise polish and CND Raspberry Shimmer. While not as bright, I think SpaRitual 'Ebb & Flow' would be a good base.

Now for the really bad news: the price of Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes increased from $18.00 US to $20.00 US permanently with this collection. This is probably one of the last new RBL polishes I will be featuring on this blog unless a color comes out that completely wows me. The colors are pretty but are they $20.00 worth of pretty? We'll have to wait and see!
Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes can be purchased at the website for $20.
