My first Rescue Beauty Lounge purchase! I don't know why but when I get these high end brands, I'm always surprised by how tiny the bottles are. I think it's cause I'm used to seeing macro shots of them online. Does this happen to anyone else?
Scrangie, 2 coats. Scrangie has a purple base with silvery-teal shimmer. The shade was inspired by a beetle's wing and named after its creator, the infamous blogger Scrangie. The formula was flawless and covers well in two easy coats. This is one of the many shades that were discontinued by the time I became interested in polish, which resulted in much lament. When it was finally brought back, I did a little dance and immediately grabbed it. So the question is does it live up to the hype?
In my opinion, sadly no. I think my expectations for this polish were extremely high, especially since it was a lemming. Don't get me wrong, it's a beautiful polish. I can see why people love it. But I think the hype just ruined it for me. I expected it to completely blow me away, but my reaction was more like, 'hmm pretty.' Personally, I find the teal shimmer too weak. I really wish the teal was a stronger, like BAM! Teal! Purple! But the teal shimmer is more on the silvery side. It does look a bit stronger outdoors than it does indoors.
Overall, I'm still happy to own Scrangie even if I was a bit disappointed initially. Scrangie can be bought online at Rescue Beauty Lounge. It's a bit on the pricey side as it is $18 for 0.4 fl oz. What do you think? Is this a polish you would splurge on?
P.S. You might notice my nails switch between square and round, which will basically tip you off on which swatches are old and new. -___-;;
