Valentine's Day Manicure

February 17:

This manicure was not very Valentine's themed but it is very special to me. This was my Valentine's day present that the boyfriend gave to me early so I could do a manicure with it for Valentine's day (best boyfriend ever!). It was also a polish that I have been craving since July when I saw the pictures on The Nailphile's blog.

Here I give you the beautiful Rescue Beauty Lounge "Catherine"

I do not have enough words to describe this polish. It is a deep pewter royal purple with blue and pink micro shimmer. In some lights it looks grey and others the purple is very prominent. I felt regal just wearing this. It truly is a polish fit for a queen. I wish someone could make me a whole wardrobe that is this same color.

Since this is my first RBL polish I was excited to see how the formula and brush compared to other brands. The formula is simply amazing. I was worried that it was going to chip quickly since I had heard that it would but it lasted four days with no chipping. This was only two coats with perfect coverage. The brush was small but easy to control and I love the shape of the bottle.

Does this make me want more RBL...yes! But I think "Catherine" and I won't mind having some one on one time with each other.

Until next time,
Happy painting!
