You know those brands that just call to you over and over, always enticing you to buy just one more product? The ones that are so amazing, you remember each and every purchase you've made from them, going all the way back to your first? That's how I feel about Rescue Beauty Lounge.

From the purchase of my very first bottle (Recycle) to every other one in my collection, they both stand the test of time and make me fall in love over and over again. So is it really any wonder that I'm completely smitten with three of the latest colors in my arsenal, Fashion Polish, Forgiveness and Be Humble? Read on to find out why.

Fashion Polish is one of those colors that can't help but stun you into awed silence. It's part of the Bloggers 2.0 collection that launched a couple months ago. And while all six of the colors in this collection were gorgeous, Fashion Polish stood out to me immediately -- and not just because I'm an avid reader of her blog! (Check it out here.) No, it's because this color is AMAZING BEYOND ALL NATURAL BELIEF. The deep, creamy black base is scattered with a mix of red, gold and green micro glitter and inspired by the sunset over the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. And, while it doesn't photograph extremely well, is just absolutely gorgeous in person. It applies completely opaque in just one coat, though I applied two for even more richness. This is the kind of color people will stop you on the street to admire.

Be Humble is from the Emoting Me Collection for Spring 2013 -- and it's my perfect version of a neutral. The base is one of those interesting hybrids of taupe, grey and lavender that, even if nothing else was happening, would still be beautiful. But add pink, blue and lavender shimmer to the mix and OH. MY. GOD. I'm known for posting my manicures on every social media channel I frequent, and this is the one that stood out to people the most in recent months. And, while I tend not to re-wear polishes all that often, due to my ever-growing stash, I keep turning to this one because I just can't get enough.

Forgiveness is another one from the recent Emoting Me Collection. I have to admit I was going back and forth on whether I should purchase this one. Did I really NEED another purple in my stash? (The answer is probably no, to be honest.) So it was a bit of an impulse purchase -- one of those ones I wavered on and then just said, "OH, WHY NOT?" and added to my cart. Well, color me happy -- because now I honestly can't imagine not owning it! It's purple, yes, but with a dusky dove/lavender undertone that just makes it completely original. I love the inspiration of forgiveness behind the color as well -- whether you're forgiving yourself or someone else -- and the hue that emerges from that in creator Ji Baek's mind. It's truly beautiful.

Rescue Beauty Lounge nail polishes retail for $20 each and are available at rescuebeauty.com.

  1. I love the Be Humble color! It is a perfect neutral for sure. Looks very similar to my favourite one, Naked from Urban Decay. I have never heard of this brand before but I am definitely going to investigate and get my hands on some if I can.
