It has been sunny here! Sunny! And hot! And kind of humid! It's a welcome change from the gloom. I love waking up to sun streaming in through my window. And you know what else sun means? I can try out my new Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes!
This is almost too perfect for words...but you know me. I've got words for everything ;) Chinoise is a true red creme. The name means "Chinese" in French, which is probably a reference to its description on the Rescue Beauty Lounge website: "Dedicated to Diana Vreeland. Makes your nails look as if they've been lacquered like a Chinese screen. Drop-dead chic." Drop-dead chic, indeed. The color is just too gorgeous. And the application! The application was beyond perfect. This was two coats and they were so easy to apply. I don't know what it is about the RBL brush; it looks like a normal brush, but somehow it seems to do a better job than most. This would look great on toesies too, but right now I've got Grunge on my toes. Ew, how gross does that sound? Grunge on my toes.
I had heard this color referred to as something like "man magnet red." It's true. I got a lot of compliments on this color while I was wearing it yesterday, ranging from, "I like that nail polish," to "that's a beautiful color on you." And these were compliments from men. No women mentioned my polish. Isn't that the strangest thing? I can't comment on the wear because I only had this on for a day. I was sad to take it off but not too sad; I know I'll be wearing it a lot. It has kicked the ass of every other red I own. I'm so glad I picked this one up. Worth the $18? Honestly? Yup. I love it that much.
I am beyond thrilled with Chinoise. What do you guys think of it? Does anyone have it and love it? Does anyone have it and feel completely meh about it? Is Chinoise on anyone's list for the next Rescue Beauty Lounge sale? Spill.
