Crouching Polish, Hidden Shimmer

Base: One coat Zoya Get Even
Color: Rescue Beauty Lounge Poco a Poco
Top: Seche Vite
Application: Average (out of poor, average, good, excellent)

I love my Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes. But sometimes, I wish the "hidden shimmer" was not so hidden on the nail. Take Rescue Beauty Lounge Poco a Poco for example. In the bottle, in bright sunshine, and in pictures taken with flash, this unassuming pink has the most gorgeous red-magenta shimmer. But, 99% of the time that you're actually wearing the polish, the shimmer is nowhere to be found. Poco a Poco is a nice work-safe pink in most lighting conditions.

This is two coats of Poco a Poco, and I only rated it "average" for application because I had bubbling issues and difficulty applying this nice and smoothly. It's not my favorite RBL in terms of formula. I own it because I truly enjoy staring at it in the bottle, and every once in awhile I find a great lighting situation in which the shimmer really pops out!

Rescue Beauty Lounge Poco a Poco is available online at rescuebeauty.com.

I feel like my last couple of posts have been slightly boring.... I have some exciting stuff to swatch, I promise!! Some Halloween items too ;)

Such a pretty, dusty rose pink! I totally see what you mean about the hidden shimmer, though--a little more of it would go a long way.

It is still so pretty Elizabeth! Just a bit more shimmer would make it so amazing!
