Rescue Beauty Lounge Mismas

Hey peachies! Mismas is a vibrant, deep purple crème.  Rescue Beauty Lounge is a 4-free brand (free of toluene, formaldehyde, DBP and formaldehyde resin.)  Mismas was one of three nail colors (named after Michelle Mismas, the founder of great nail blog, debuted in Fall 2009 Blogger collection.  The formula is AMAZING!  I mean, one-coat type of amazing but you know me, I applied two coats.  The application is amazingly smooth.  Can you tell I love this polish?  Mismas definitely has more blue than red undertones but it a gorgeous color and super-shiny.  The pigmentation is perfect, utterly perfection.  Want Mismas? Well right now, it’s sold out on but I THINK you can vote to bring it back, I know, bummer times 10.  If not, I would try to score it Ebay. However, Rescue Beauty Lounge has some amazing colors to browse through.  Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes are $18 each.  This is the perfect purple crème. It's a little pricey but completely worth it.  Until next time...

Essie Braziliant (Braziliant Summer 2011 Collection)

Hey y'all! I know this is a summery color but the fall season always makes room for a beautiful orange;-) Braziliant is bright orange with a pinkish overlay sheen. Essie is a 3-free brand (free of toluene, DBP and formaldehyde.) The namesake of this collection applies smooth; the formula is another hit for Essie. As you may can see, the orange is way more orange-y than it appears in the bottle. Braziliant loooks more like a coral in the bottle.  The pink sheen softens the orange just enough to give it halo effect while maintaining the vividness of this beautiful orange. Like, like and like! Gotta have Braziliant? Essie retails at major retailers like CVS & Target for $8.

By the way, I will be doing a special post series in November.  I will reveal the name of the series at the end of this month.  Have an awesome weekend!
