Rescue Beauty Lounge in Teal

Rescue Beauty Lounge in Teal (sunlight)
There's not too much to say about this one. I love it. I like it as a vampy for summer because it goes well with lots of brights and isn't blackened.

The formula is one of the formerly typical RBL-perfect cremes (the formula lately has been less consistent). I used 2 coats and could have gotten away with one (I did have to do a bit of cleanup because I was polishing while watching So You Think You Can Dance). I really like the RBL brush; it's just long enough and thin, but not too thin, flexible, but not floppy.

Usually Teal is slightly more on the green side of teal, but it is a rather perfectly balanced polish on the blue-green spectrum. In cool natural light, obviously it pulls more blue. This is a good vampy that never really looks black. I took one picture in as low light as I could get (in fully daylight), and although it's dark, it never looks black unless you're in very dim lighting. I forgot to take pictures, but Teal is much deeper and a bit more green than Illamasqua in Muse (ALU has a comparison). Teal is bluer and very slightly lighter than Nicole by OPI in Kourtney Had a Little Lam Lam *eyeroll at that name* (see Goose's Glitter comparison). Teal is more green and slightly darker than OPI in Ski Teal We Drop - I wouldn't consider them dupes (Perfectly Polished tips comparison).

Teal was released in the Fall/Winter 2008 collection, but is sold out unless it is voted to bring back. I got this and a ton of RBL's in the 50% off sale a few years ago, so I have very fond memories of this polish. Worn June 27 - July 1, 2012.
