Rescue Beauty Lounge Fan 2.0 Collection!

I can't believe that today's the RBL Fan 2.0 collection unveiling already!
Time flew by so fast since the final votes last year but the same time it felt like an eternity... One thing for sure, I'm super excited to show you the fans' creations!

Naked Without Polish
by Becky

“It would be a pure carnation pink base. Very basic and very creamy, no jellies (as much as I love them). I want a polish that is opaque in 2 coats. I want the pink base to be filled with a gold shimmer, for the sun to catch the gold and just make it shine! I want my polish to be soft and girlie, but still make an impact and stand out. I want it to be a color people can wear year-round, a color that cheers you up on a bad day. I’ve been dreaming of this polish ever since I can remember. I’ve been a polish lover since I was 13 and I can’t find anything that comes close to being my absolute dream polish, even though I do have several on my favorites list. This ONE polish is always in the back of my mind. Just the thought of it takes my breath away and makes me smile.”

Naked Without Polish is a pastel pink creme with coppery gold shimmers and a strong blue flash. Truth be told, I didn't really know what to expect from the look of it in the bottle, I'm not a pastel fan, not particularly fond of pinks either and, I don't know, I felt like there was too much a lot going on in the bottle... BUT I was so wrong! On the nails, it's a subtle, perfectly well balanced mix of shimmers, so unique, and I love it! Formula was a flawless, even, pigmented, 2 coater.

“Duality. Dichotomy. The essence of the feminine contradiction—Who’s that girl? The surface belies the woman within. The intensity and intellect of Marilyn was masked by the shell of a vixen. The demure facade of Jackie concealed the passionate seductress within. Stereotypes defied. The Girl next door and the Goddess. Whimsy, charm, flirtation, seduction and rapture.” 

Coquette is a medium coral based pink crelly with a mix of mainly silver but also sparse pink and gold shimmers, delicate, juicy and fresh at the same time. Application was nice and easy, I used 2 coats plus topcoat.

Lotus Elise
by Candice

“My dream RBL would be something that I have wanted to see Ji do for a while—the inspiration came from a unique and rare gemstone found mostly in Sri Lanka: the padparadscha sapphire. While most sapphires are blue, this one stands out amongst the rest as it varies in color from pink to orange, spanning all the range in between. RBL has some very lovely pale and girly pinks, but this pink would be different. I envision the gold shimmer to run as a thread throughout (like the flash of orange running through Piu Mosso), while the orange microglitter would be more visible. Because these three colors (pink, orange and gold) are analogous on the color wheel (next to each other), the result will be a seamless blend of shades that would work well with each other, allowing this polish to be worn by those who are daring, as well as those a little more reserved.”

Lotus Elise is a hot red based pink jelly with strong, almost glass-flecked, red, pink, orange and gold shimmers. It's bright, bold, squishy, the perfect Summer shade to wear all year long. Formula was surprisingly pigmented and required 2 coats for sufficient coverage.

Fire Queen
by Jaime

“My color inspiration comes from Depression Era glass from the 1930s and 
1940s—specifically, the pale jade color of the Fire-King line made by the Anchor Hocking 
Glass Company commonly referred to as “jadeite.” In a sea of imposters, no one has been 
able to capture the magic of the genuine Fire-King and thus it has become highly coveted 
since the 1960′s: a small decadence of lean times turned luxury. When you hold a piece of 
Fire-King up to the light it glows with history. This hue has a build-able jade jelly and the end 
result looks like milk glass veneers on your fingertips. Both edgy and full of vintage charm, 
this polish is the perfect fit for any 'Fire-Queen.’”

Fire Queen is a milky jade jelly. It's just everything I imagined it would be from Jaime's description : pure, translucent, vintage and so modern at the same time. Formula was sheer but easily build-able, I used 3 thin coats in my swatches here.

“My vision for Réveillon is based on the cold winter afternoons growing up on the Quebec/NYS border. This is the borderland where we speak both French and English; for many on the American side, it’s the furthest south our families migrated. Réveillon is a holiday dinner held for Christmas and/or New Year’s Eve. It is an event of tradition and family, marking the transition from night to day as the dinner/party lasts well past midnight. Réveillon is celebrated with luxurious feasting in the company of family and friends. Given that it takes place after the winter solstice, the holiday suggests the coming of spring, albeit many months from that day. The color in my mind is a cool, silver-toned blue (more silver than blue) inspired by the icy landscape of late December. There is an internal flash of gold/white shimmer, perhaps violet, representing the light as reflected off ice, as well as the fireworks often used to light the night sky on Réveillon. Réveillon is mysterious with a complex depth and internal shimmer/light.”

Reveillon is a medium grey based blue / blue based grey creme with a nice and subtle pink and silver flickering shimmer. It definitely reminds me of Winter and I love how the shimmer catches the light. Formula was just as nice as the previous shades and I used 2 coats for complete coverage.

“Or fireflies in Italian, remind me of the most magical time in my childhood when I was still innocent and the world was a safe and magical place. This color is reminiscent of the color of a deepening summer night sky after sundown, between dusk and midnight. In my mind’s eye, I see interspersed throughout this glorious base, random flecks of blue and/or green iridescent luminescent flecks (like the ones that are visible in Cuprum) that randomly sparkle when the light hits it, reminiscent of the fireflies’ sparks of light.”

Lucciole is a dark greyed out base with a strong hot purple flash and coppery gold shimmers. This one's also a really unique color, almost duochrome as the dark grey base tends to predominate around the edges of the nails. Formula was thinner than I expected, almost jelliesque somehow, but still opaque by the second coat.

Overall :
I love Fans collection. I love reading about the inspirations behind the colors and I always feel like there's special about them! I don't think I could pick a favorite if you asked me, there's just something about each color that particularly speaks to me but I can't wait to hear your thoughts on them!
