Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily and Lynnderella Thank Blue!

Man, last orders were out in record time!  Although, that kept me from blogging pretty much all week last week, so I'm sorry!  Tonight's post will be picture heavy and information light because, yet again, I'm pulling from some older swatches before I wrote down my opinions on application after every mani.  That being said, I am so much in love with this mani that I will be rewearing it again!  Hey, maybe I can do a challenge for myself to re-wear some of my favorite manis and polishes one month!  Next month, I'll be working my way through my untried Enchanteds and Elevations as I'm working towards starting to purge some of my preciouses.  My stash is overwhelming, so it's time to make room!  So, let's get to it!

[I purchased these polishes myself.]

For this mani, I used three coats of Aqua Lily with a glitter gradient using Thank Blue.  They are a perfect match, so it was a really nice monochromatic look.  I topped it off with a coat of Gelous and a coat of KBShimmer's Clearly on Top.

Thank Blue is made up of teal and silver glitters in a clear base.  This polish is so jam packed with glitters, that you definitely need an extra coat of topcoat to smooth it all out.  You can also wear this on its own in three coats, if you really wanted to.  

Aqua Lily is a lovely medium teal creme with a strong pink/purple flash.  Sadly, the flash is much more prominent in the bottle than it is on the nail.

Loving this blurry shot so you can see just how much holo goodness is in Thank Blue.  It's sooo stunning!

You can see the pink shimmer sneaking out in the middle of the nail towards the left.

You can purchase Rescue Beauty Lounge polishes at their store here.  You can purchase Lynnderellas at their stores here and here.  Sadly, both of these have been discontinued, so you'll have to look for them on blog sales if you want them!  So, what did you think?  Do you like to do monochromatic gradients or glitter looks?

  1. I love glitter gradients for many reasons, but mostly because both polishes get to shine. I hate completely covering a beautiful polish with a glitter topper. The monochrome gradient gives it an elegant sophistication, too. More ball gown, less show girl. :)
