Rescue Beauty Lounge Spring/Summer 2009


If I had to pick a favorite city, I would select New Orleans.  The food, the music, and the atmosphere can’t be beat.  Ironically enough, I live next to the city that has been voted as Travel + Leisure’s top city in the world for 6 years running, but there’s a lot to unpack there.  I spent most of my childhood and adult life living on the Gulf Coast, so New Orleans was a short 3-hour drive away.  Have you ever woken up to a Bloody Mary and freshly fried, powdered sugar-covered beignets?  Tell me you can beat that!!!

Anyhoo, back to the nail polish, while I weep because I can’t get a decent beignet for miles around.

Back in the day, Rescue Beauty Lounge had the best crème polish formula on the market.  They were richly pigmented and applied like butter.  The Spring/Summer 2009 collection was a huge departure from their main offerings and unique in that snapshot of nail polish world.  The collection consisted of three flashy and sparkling glitter polishes:  Frugalista, Locavore, and Look Rich, Be Cheap.

Frugalista (three coats):  silver and purple glitter in a clear base

Locavore (three coats):  gold, green, blue and purple glitter in a clear base

Look Rich, Be Cheap (three coats):  gold and purple glitter in a clear base

If you’re looking for the perfect Mardi Gras manicure, these are the polishes to turn to!  They even match the primary colors of Mardi Gras:  green, gold and purple.  Hopefully I can wear one of these to New Orleans in the near future.
