Rescue Beauty Lounge is having its annual Five Hour Sale on Nov. 1, and if you can remember to set a calendar alert for yourself, it's well worth it. All of its polishes will be a full 50 percent off from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. EST (that's 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. PST). The only catch is that you have to be a fan of Rescue Beauty on Facebook, so remember to become one before you hit up the sale. The brand is saying that this will probably be the last blowout they do like this, so get in there and stock up.
New York City's Rescue Beauty Lounge is best known for its nail-polish expert, Ji Baek, and her collection of trendsetting polish shades. But the brand also has a collection of bath and body goods — think lotions, body washes, and hand creams — and it's now available at a deep discount. The items are a whopping 75 percent off when you use the code smell good at checkout, which shaves the prices of hand cream and body wash down to $5 apiece. That's a lot of luxury for drugstore-level prices, so consider treating yourself or picking up a fancy present on the cheap. (The holidays, after all, are mere months away . . . )
I'm dazzled by these new sparkly shades from rescue beauty lounge . . . and smiling at the clever names. Locavore blends earth-friendly hues of green and blue with metallics, Frugalista blasts out with gunmetal specks in a rich purple, and Look Rich, Be Cheap is a gold polish with purple flecks.
As posh as the products are, applying glittery polish can be tough. Check out my tips for a smooth sparkle when you read more
After seeing dark nails for the past few months, I'm excited to see the new color collection from Rescue Beauty Lounge. These four additions ($18 each) are so bright, so bold, that it's like the season's already here.
It looks like Rihanna's yellow nails are sticking around for awhile, so if you're a fan of out-of-the-ordinary color, you might like Yellow Fever. I'm not crazy about Recycle, the green shade, and I'm on the fence with the light violet shade of Purple Haze.
But how beautiful is Chinoise, the red shade? It's inspired by Diana Vreeland, the legendary fashion editor who loved red lacquer on everything. (No, seriously, check out her apartment.) I showed Fab this shade, and she loved it. Wonder if we'll have to share a bottle . . .
Usually the color gray is reserved for cashmere, not cosmetics. But as it turns out, gray is continuing the transition into beauty products, and it can be a chic and versatile color for nails. Leading the way is the always-innovative Rescue Beauty Lounge with its dove-gray shade Concrete Jungle ($18).
A great and inexpensive alternative is Revlon's Steel-Etto from its Dark Pleasures line. It's a little darker, incorporating a beautiful shimmery silver tone into the hue. If you're still unsure about gray nails, try out Wet N Wild in Sparked. At only $1.99 a bottle, it's a risk you can afford to take!
Red is the name of the game this holiday season and we are bringing you all of the best red fashion and beauty finds we can! Red nail polish is bold, sexy and sophisticated; it is also undeniably classic.
For those of you who are a little shy to wear this bright color, here's a little guide to help you find the right hue for you!
- Dark or olive skin: Wear a true red
- Fair skin: Wear a blue-ish red - it will warm your skin tone up nicely
- Pink-ish skin: Wear a orange/red shade
Here are my favorite picks for these skin tones:
Essie A-List, $7, is the perfect shade for those of you with dark or olive skin. This is a gorgeous and glamorous true red which also happens to be one of their best sellers!
Rescue Beauty Lounge Long Wear Nail Polish in Chinoise, $18, is a lovely shade for those with fair skin. It's a deeper, darker red with blue undertones that will liven up your skin. This happens to be a favorite shade of mine for winter!
