Nail Art Weekend: Another Pinterest Replicate

Again, another manicure that I fell in love with on Pinterest.
Decided to do a pastel jelly version since I've been wondering what to do with the RBL jellies I have.
Items used:
RBL Bikini Bottom,
RBL Fire Queen,
RBL Oh Slap!,
white acrylic paint (since I was trying to stick to an RBL only version)
and silver studs from Born Pretty Store.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Week: Concrete Jungle

I had originally planned to post Concrete Jungle with another RBL grey.
Unfortunately, work has taken over for the past couple of days,
and I haven't been able to get pictures of Stormy.
So here's Concrete Jungle first.
I promise I'll get around to Stormy soon.
2 coats of Concrete Jungle,
topped with HK Girl TC.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Week: Fugly Lovelies

A quickie for this post,
as I'm writing this with my eyes barely open.
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
Mustard ochre crème.

I actually thought this one looked delicious.
It reminded me of apple pies, burnt caramel and crumbly biscotti.
No More War,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
And can you believe I thought of food too with this one?
Olives. That's what this reminded me of.
Though I think my good friends won't be surprised that all I think about is food.
Even with eyes barely open.

Nail Art Weekend: Glitter for Painful Nail Days

Well, you know what they say about wanting what you can't have,
you'll want it even more.
Exactly what happens when your nail hurts with remover,
but you have that crazy urge to use all the glitters.
And in this instance,
I have 3 RBL glitters that I had wanted so badly to use.
So what do I do?
I end up with a glitter dry brush nail art for one of them.
At least it won't be a full-force painful glitter removal deal.
RBL Recycle,
2 coats + HK Girl TC.
Glorious deep pine crème
Locavore dry-brushed and then topped with HK Girl TC.
I suspect Locavore can be pretty versatile and go with other colours,
but unfortunately, testing that hypothesis will have to wait.
Removal was still a bitch.

Rescue Beauty Lounge Week: The Purple Week

Well, pictures this week may be slightly marred.
I painfully busted a hang nail on the ring finger of my swatch hand.
I've been waiting for it to scab over
so that I could at least use remover without screaming the house down.
Which is today.
I just hope you guys can deal with a little bit of a fleshy mess.
RBL Fan Collection 2.0,
3 coats + HK Girl TC.
Another stunner from RBL that I wasn't expecting to like so much.
The base colour actually reminds me of a Nubar duochrome I have;
a dusky purple that greys at the edges.
What was unexpected,
was the lovely coppery-gold flecks that gives this polish an added glow.
Mismas was part of the very first RBL Blogger collection,
and one of those that got me started and hooked onto RBL crèmes.
2 coats + Seche Vite TC.
Mismas is supposed to be a deep purple crème.
Unfortunately, one reason why you hardly see purples,
especially purples crèmes on this blog,
is because my camera just warps the colour.
And since I don't photoshop,
I never really bothered to post a lot of my purples up.
Anatomy of a #KDrama collection,
Will They, Won't They,
3 coats + HK Girl TC.
Another stunner from RBL.
Muted lavender with blue-green flecks.
To sum it up, really to-die-for.
I just hope you guys have these in your RBL collection.
