Rescue Beauty Lounge Anatomy Of A #KDrama Swatch and Review

Press sample
Hello beautiful nail polish lovers! The day is here! Another Rescue Beauty Lounge collection unveiling. I'm so honored to be included in this short list of bloggers as I've been a true fan of RBL since the moment I discovered them. This collection arrived when I was literally knee deep in house cleaning, fixing and de-cluttering preparing for my upcoming move. What a challenge this has been. But I did it! woot woot! And now...LET'S SEE! 
(All swatches are with Rescue Beauty Lounge Base Coat and Top Coat)

 Rescue Beauty Lounge Anatomy Of A #Kdrama

Picture this: A really hot, rich boy (his parents practically own the country—think Samsung!) falls in love with a plain Jane, a pitifully poor girl whose family was financially ruined by loan sharks. The boy’s equally wealthy best friend falls in love with her too, and they even come to blows over the girl. She is without a clue since she is often too exhausted from taking care of her family—and working two or three jobs. It takes about 8 episodes for this couple to hold hands; we don’t know which of the boys she will choose, she may have held hands with both of them. They reach into their bottomless wallets to give her makeovers—in fact, one of their fathers owns the department store! (Oh Snap!)
Enter the boy’s no-nonsense Korean tiger mom who always has a rich girl for him to marry (think company merger), someone he loathes. There are loads of schemes to get rid of the poor girl, even if his mother has to hire a hit man. Yes, there will be a kidnapping and perhaps some injuries, you name it—I’m scared for her too, no lie. It takes about 16 episodes for these two to kiss and overcome her accidents, hospital recoveries, etc. They promise never to part. But wait! Something else surfaces, after the boy’s friend digs up the girl’s family history, it turns out that the couple are exactly like Romeo and Juliet, their ancestors were enemies and the reason why her family is destitute.
What will she do? Will she honor her family and reclaim their wealth? Or does she abandon ship?!
Anatomy of a #KDrama is my latest collection, brought about by my newest compulsion.

 Rescue Beauty Lounge Burn The Evidence
Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-RBL-Anatomy-of-a-kdrama-Burn-the-evidence Burn The Evidence
Burn The Evidence has a finely milled panache glitter that is not only jammed-packed with a mélange of red, gold, orange and copper glitters, but it also provides that dash of ash-black brilliance. This color fully covers in two full coats and has a flaming three- dimensional depth: Your hot nails will look like they’re on fire.

 Out of the gate with this fiery goodness. Easy to work with micro glitter, opaque in 2 coats. This one is a stunner..and dries gritty. You may need 2 coats of top coat for that glossy finish. Love it!

Cue The Montage
Yellow chartreuse is the most difficult color to wear; it was a daring task to try to create one that would be suitable for all skin tones. Cue the Montage has a different texture than any other RBL nail polish. It dries matte and textured, so you must apply a basecoat and topcoat for the full effect. This color has glittery silver that peaks through in glorified harmony.
Warning: The glitter in this bottle does not appear the same when applied to nails; it has a sandwiched effect.

OK, I must say..this IS a daring shade, and not a winner for me personally. A formula that seems tricky, not very self leveling but opaque in 2 coats, dries textured and matte and is very top coat hungry. I used 2 coats of top coat here.

 Instant Amnesia
This is the perfectly neutral balance between fawn and taupe, a lofty palate cleanser with a tinge of attitude. Its flawless beauty is infused with flutters of silver, green, and pink shimmer. Once you wear it, Instant Amnesia will erase your memory of all the bad nail polish colors from your past.
Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-RBL-Anatomy-of-a-kdrama-Instant-Amnesia
 A gorgeous neutral that is in no way flat. You could get away with 2 coats but I have 3 coats here to be sure. Flawless formula. I'm afraid the shade isn't great for my skin tone but I'd wear it anyway!

 Rescue Beauty Lounge Monologue
Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-RBL-Anatomy-of-a-kdrama-Monologue
 Monologue
Virtuously inky, Monologue’s navy blue base is embedded with a soliloquy of elegant light-blue shimmer. Even in low light, this solitary dark blue retains its color and does not appear to be black. Monologue has a smooth, undemanding application; this color is darkly pigmented yet calmingly engaging.
Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-RBL-Anatomy-of-a-kdrama-Monologue
 Ugh. Stunning. A must have for the blue lovers! Perfect formula, 2 coats. A dark blue that doesn't turn black in low light and a visible shimmer. WIN!

 Not Your Baby
A deceitfully, mysterious brown-bronzy-sage-green duo chrome, Not Your Baby is a classic RBL chameleon nail polish—its identity changes depending on the light. Trickery plays. This color may appear to be brown with a cast of sage-green shimmer in a certain light, and yet bronze the next moment.
Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-RBL-Anatomy-of-a-kdrama-Not-Your-Baby
 OK. Wow. Just wow. This is amazing. Really a color shifter in different lights and complex, I didn't want to take THIS baby off. Another flawless formula, 2 coats here.

Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-RBL-Anatomy-of-a-kdrama-Oh-Slap!
Oh Slap!
The quintessential flushed cheeks for your nails, Oh Slap! goes on as a sheer pink in one coat with opaque coverage in two coats. This is THE PERFECT PINK; the formula is flawless and streak-free and is not pastel or white-based. You can practically apply it with your eyes closed.
Rescue-Beauty-Lounge-RBL-Anatomy-of-a-kdrama-Oh-Slap!
 Ah love this pink! A perfect jelly formula, no streaks, but for me, I did need 3-4 coats for opacity, which is fine with me when it's a jelly and they layers add a glossy squishy-ness that only jellies do. There's no top coat here. This one was hard for me to get color accurate, so if my skin tone seems off it was because I was trying to get the polish shade correct. The bottle shot is accurate.

Will They Won’t They
Will They Won’t They catches the sun’s rays as it glides on your nails. A gentle cascade of the tiniest silvery, blue-green micro glitter softly flows on a pool of doleful lavender. Sheer coverage in one coat, and opaque in two.

 Lovely lovely!! I'm not even a purple lover and this is a must have. Probably my favorite of this collection. Perfect formula, 2 coats here. The shimmer is much prettier in person on top of this dusty lavender. In love <3 When I get a moment this one is going back on!
