Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie Swatches & Review
Today I’m happy to share with you one of the biggest polish lemmings that I’ve had for almost 2 years, Rescue Beauty Lounge’s Scrangie! Back in late 2010 when I’d first heard about this amazing polish it had already been long gone and sold out from RBL’s Fall 2009 Blogger Collection. I was resigned to the fact that I would never get my hands on this gorgeous polish created by – and named after – the forever awesome blogger Scrangie, and I would just have to stare longingly at all of the swatches of this amazing polish online.
But alas! Ji, the amazing lady behind RBL, held a 2nd Bring it Back vote and Scrangie was one of the winners (along with another little polish called Anne that I’ll be sharing soon…)!!
Let’s move onto the swatches of this gorgeous polish!
Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie
Scrangie is a blurple (blue-purple) shade that’s filled with blue-green glass-flecks. This polish is TO-DIE-FOR. In my notes (yes, I take notes when I’m swatching :-P) I highlighted the phrase “holy sh*t. ♥” when I was referring to this nail polish.
The blogger Scrangie created this polish as a combination of her favorite colors (blue, green and purple) to mimic the wings of a scarab beetle. It comes out more purple on me but it has a definite blue tone on Scrangies pretty digits. This polish is truly a chameleon.
Scrangie was a dream to apply. It was thin, but not runny, and built up to opacity in 3 easy coats. Just pure perfection in a jar!
And here’s a picture with camera flash. What I love about Scrangie is that the shimmering glass flecks show up no matter what level of lighting you’re in.
And here’s a macro shot. You really… REALLY need to see this at the maximum size.
And here’s a bottle shot for your viewing pleasure. This was a picture from when I was still using Picnik to edit my photos so this picture does not do the polish enough justice in my humble opinion. You really need to see it for yourselves.
If you hadn’t realized by now, I frickin’ LOVE this polish! I’m so happy that Ji was able to recreate Scrangie for all of us that missed out the first time around when it was released in 2009.
Correct me if I’m wrong but I believe it’s still limited edition, so if you missed purchasing it before I wouldn’t hesitate to snatch it up now. Cause once it’s out of stock again it may be gone forever this time.
