Rescue Beauty Lounge - Glamourpuss

Glamourpuss is one of my favorite reds because the formula is so amazing.  Like most RBL polishes I've tried (with the exception of Cherry Love), the consistency is very thin yet opaque with just one or two coats.  Even when I mess up and apply the polish a little unevenly, I feel like it smooths itself out so there are no streaks.  Originally I hesitated to buy this one because red is so common and I have several similar colors that were less expensive, but ultimately I'm glad I got this because the formula is just that good.

essence - Gold Rush

Gold Rush is a super shimmery champagne color.  It came out lighter and more sparkly than I expected.  Even though the color isn't too crazy, a lot of shimmer is packed in that little bottle.  I used two coats and then stamped the leopard print pattern from Konad plate m57 using Konad black.

essence - Fairy Dust

Above is Fairy Dust, a light pink frosted shimmer.  The color isn't particularly unique but the formula was great!  Usually I have a hard time applying really light colors since they require multiple coats; I typically end up with translucent spots or streaks which drives me crazy until I can get it just right.  With Fairy Dust, the polish went on very smoothly and it only took two coats.

essence - Where is the Party?

Out of the five essence polishes I picked up over the weekend, Where is the Party? is probably the one I was most excited about.  In the bottle, it has all the colors of a peacock feather--blue, green, purple, gold....but when I put it on all those colors didn't show up.  

In direct sun it looks like a purple foil:

In low light it was usually a charcoal foil / shimmer:

And at certain angles it was somewhere in between purple and dark grey:

But never any green!  Overall it's not bad, I think I'm just disappointed because I expected something else.
