Rescue Beauty Lounge for Spring

You read my swooning over Rescue Beauty Lounge Under The Stars, well now I’m practically drooling over their Spring collection. Why? Hello? Green! Do I need to say anything more?

RBL’s Spring collection pulls its inpiration straight from the bold jewel tones and brights seen on Lanvin’s runway. Alber Elbaz chose cobalt, green, yellow, red and violet to showcase his designs and Ji Baek has translated that to nail fashion.

RECYCLE is a deep blackish emerald green. This color makes your nails looks like precious jewelry.

PURPLE HAZE, a vivid violet, provides the perfect sour counterpoint to all those sweet garden prints.

YELLOW FEVER, a mouth-puckering lemon, will brighten up summer whites, and neutral shades of navy, khaki and olive.

And finally, a Lanvin dress inspired the re-launch of CHINOISE, my all-time favorite warm China red lacquer.

The Spring collection is available for purchase now through this special VIP link so if you want these colors, I suggest you order now before they show up in the magazines and cause a frenzy. RBL polishes retail for $18, which I know is steep. Personally I’d love to get them all but I just can’t justify that type of splurging so picking up Recycle will probably be my limit. My green loving knows no bounds.

    Have you seen the new Butter London non-toxic nail lacquers? The packaging is adorable and they also have “handbag sized” hand lotions in flavors like Green Tea and Mango Peach.

    I really want the RBL greys, blue and the purple and green. I really wish their polish wasn’t so prohibitive expensive because I love them – I just refuse to pay that much. Ugh.

    I think I am in love… with every single one of these colors. They are just so beautiful that I’m like mesmerized by them and can’t stop looking at them. I placed an order for “Recycle”, “Yellow Fever”, and “Concrete Jungle” yesterday. I’m a little nervous to see what the yellow will look like on, but if it gets here and I don’t like it I’m definitely exchanging it for either the Chinoise or that Purple Haze. I know in a month or so I am going to be kicking myself for buying $60 worth of polish, but I just could not help myself. When you posted that photo it was like putting crack in front of amy winehouse, I didn’t have a chance in the world of resisting! What shades are your favorites? aside from the green of course…

    My bottles of Recycle, Yellow Fever, Purple Haze, Chinoise, and Concrete Jungle arrived this week. I was so excited to try them out. Naturally the first one I wanted to try out was the Recycle (I figured I would save the Purple and Yellow for warmer weather in spring/summer). Being that this is my first time using RBL polishes, in all honesty, I was a little disappointed in the application of this polish, it was a little streaky so it didn’t apply as smoothly as I had hoped and required three coats to get a truly opaque application. I love all four of these shades and they really are just as beautiful in person as in the photos so I’m hoping that maybe the problems that I had with the application is only with the Recycle shade. Has anyone else had the same application problems with their RBL polishes?

    I ordered the Recycle and it came today..I too wasn’t happy with the application. It definately takes 3 coats, but it is a pretty color.
