IT'S THE WEEKEND!! Thank goodness. This week was long and taxing. Although the weekend doesn't provide much of a respite because it's full of reading and writing, it is free from the annoying sound of alarm clocks, which is a welcome break. I did my nails the other night in a very dim room so I didn't do a great job around my haggard cuticles, but I'm showing you anyway.
This is Rescue Beauty Lounge Film Noir. I took these pictures the morning after I did this manicure, and there's already weird tipwear. I wrapped my tips with polish, too. I don't know what the deal is. It looks like I missed spots or something. But I don't think I did. The formula was not what I expect from Rescue Beauty Lounge on this polish. It required three coats to avoid bald patches, and as you can see I still got a bit of a bald spot on my ring finger nail. I love the color, though. It's very, very me. But I probably have a million dupes of it. It's more red-based than something like OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, but after three coats the effect is basically the same.
Despite my complaints, I still like this polish. It's pretty. A polish like Film Noir reminds me why I named by blog Short n Chic: dark polish looks so incredibly chic on short little nails like mine.
I don't see this lasting for too long on me, so I'll probably be back to show you something new in a couple days. As I said, I'm glad I got this polish and I think it's worth the $9 I paid for it (since I got it on sale). Had I paid the full price of $18 I might be kind of pissed. Maybe I got a bad bottle, formula-wise? Who knows. I shouldn't have to do three coats with a vampy color from RBL. At least I don't think so.
Does anyone have Film Noir and love it? Does anyone have a favorite vampy color? I don't know what mine is. I'm partial to OPI Black Cherry Chutney, but I don't think I can call it my favorite...
