Rescue Beauty Lounge - Halcyon

Here's another one from the Fan collection from Rescue Beauty Lounge...

Rescue Beauty Lounge - Halcyon


Rescue Beauty Lounge - Halcyon


Ok, so this one is named after one of my favorite plants. I love succulents, and the color is totally nailed on this one.

Color
Green-gray with shimmery pink glitter particles. In some lights it will look more green than in others. It seems like a strange color to pull off but it's actually quite casual and beautiful.

Application
My usual, 2 coats over Qtica Nail Growth Stimulator and topped with Seche Vite.

Wear
Not great on me. My nails are taking a toll - I'm not in my normal situation, not eating normally, and also playing softball. So they're in bad shape. Also I used a different nail polish remover than my usual Zoya Remove + so that may be a factor in how my nails started to chip the next day.

Bottom Line
This polish is unique enough in my collection to be worth the current $20 price. I have never had chipping problems with RBL polishes before, so I think my current issues are largely due to differences in the health of my nails and prep.

You can still purchase Halcyon from Rescue Beauty Lounge.

Disclaimer
I purchased this polish on my own. Thanks.
