This post coming to you from a very cold and snowy Newfoundland... We are having a blizzard! Some people are forecasting up to ONE HUNDRED CENTIMETRES.
AKA, I'm never leaving the house again until spring.
My power will probably be gone within a few hours... Oh my! I hate winter. Guess I should hurry up and get this post done.
Today I'll be showing you a very pretty polish with a not-so-pretty pricetag and a pretty disappointing formula.
Rescue Beauty Lounge - Scrangie
I know you know where that name comes from. If you're reading my blog, I'm sure you also know Scrangie! Who doesn't love good ol' Scrangie. She created this dream polish with RBL!
It's pretty hard to get your hands on nowadays, it is no longer sold from RBL. So look for it in blog sales, etc. RBL retails for $20 so prepare to pay that or more for it. Which is pretty ridiculous because I found the formula to be crap.
The color payoff is gorgeous... But it took three/four coats to cover, and it shrunk in every direction, so I had to add more coats the next day to cover the gaps, and then it chipped quickly to boot.
Color me unimpressed. But I do love the color...
I added some stamping to the manicure to spice it up a little!
To bring out the awesome teal shimmer, I stamped some teal zebra!
The zebra image is from Konad m57 and I did the stamping with Sally Hansen Color Quick Chrome Pen - Teal Chrome.
I was happy that my polish pen was still working despite not having used it in over a year. Some of them dried up I think but thankfully not this one because it is my favorite.
What do you think of this manicure?
Have you guys tried a super expensive polish only to be totally let down by the formula?
I'm going to go build my igloo now... Sigh!
