Rescue Beauty Lounge Anatomy Of A #KDrama Collection
Wednesday, June 18, 2014
Good day, readers.
I love being able to unveil a new Rescue Beauty Lounge collection. It's like letting your friends in on a secret! Today I'd like to share with you the Anatomy of a #KDrama Collection, seven shades that come with their very own story. Without further ado, hear it directly from Ji.
Picture this: A really hot, rich boy (his parents practically own the country—thinkSamsung!) falls in love with a plain Jane, a pitifully poor girl whose family was financially ruined by loan sharks. The boy’s equally wealthy best friend falls in love with her too, and they even come to blows over the girl. She is without a clue since she is often too exhausted from taking care of her family—and working two or three jobs. It takes about 8 episodes for this couple to hold hands; we don’t know which of the boys she will choose, she may have held hands with both of them. They reach into their bottomless wallets to give her makeovers—in fact, one of their fathers owns the department store!(Oh Snap!)Enter the boy’s no-nonsense Korean tiger mom who always has a rich girl for him to marry (think company merger), someone he loathes. There are loads of schemes to get rid of the poor girl, even if his mother has to hire a hit man. Yes, there will be a kidnapping and perhaps some injuries, you name it—I’m scared for her too, no lie. It takes about 16 episodes for these two to kiss and overcome her accidents, hospital recoveries, etc. They promise never to part. But wait! Something else surfaces, after the boy’s friend digs up the girl’s family history, it turns out that the couple are exactly like Romeo and Juliet, their ancestors were enemies and the reason why her family is destitute.What will she do? Will she honor her family and reclaim their wealth? Or does she abandon ship?!Anatomy of a #KDrama is my latest collection, brought about by my newest compulsion.–Ji Baek
Virtuously inky, Monologue’s navy blue base is embedded with a soliloquy of elegant light-blue shimmer. Even in low light, this solitary dark blue retains its color and does not appear to be black. Monologue has a smooth, undemanding application; this color is darkly pigmented yet calmingly engaging.
Oh Slap! Two generous coats.
The quintessential flushed cheeks for your nails, Oh Slap! goes on as a sheer pink in one coat with opaque coverage in two coats. This is THE PERFECT PINK; the formula is flawless and streak-free and is not pastel or white-based. You can practically apply it with your eyes closed.
Cue The Montage. Three coats.
Yellow chartreuse is the most difficult color to wear; it was a daring task to try to create one that would be suitable for all skin tones. Cue the Montage has a different texture than any other RBL nail polish. It dries matte and textured, so you must apply a basecoat and topcoat for the full effect. This color has glittery silver that peaks through in glorified harmony.
A deceitfully, mysterious brown-bronzy-sage-green duo chrome, Not Your Baby is a classic RBL chameleon nail polish—its identity changes depending on the light. Trickery plays. This color may appear to be brown with a cast of sage-green shimmer in a certain light, and yet bronze the next moment.
Burn The Evidence. Two generous coats.
Burn The Evidence has a finely milled panache glitter that is not only jammed-packed with a mélange of red, gold, orange and copper glitters, but it also provides that dash of ash-black brilliance. This color fully covers in two coats and has a flaming three-dimensional depth: Your hot nails will look like they’re on fire
This is the perfectly neutral balance between fawn and taupe, a lofty palate cleanser with a tinge of attitude. Its flawless beauty is infused with flutters of silver, green, and pink shimmer. Once you wear it, Instant Amnesia will erase your memory of all the bad nail polish colors from your past.
Will They Won’t They Three thin coats.
Will They Won’t They catches the sun’s rays as it glides on your nails. A gentle cascade of the tiniest silvery, blue-green micro glitter softly flows on a pool of doleful lavender. Sheer coverage in one coat, and opaque in two.
Overall the formulas on all these polishes were good, Cue the Montage was a little tricky but applied well on top of a slick coating of RBL Base Coat. Hands down my favorite was Burn The Evidence. Have you ever seen polished red sandstone? It looks just like that- so beauty and there is so much light play. Not Your Baby was absolutely gorgeous too, definitely an unusual but fascinating color. Oh Slap! was a surprise favorite of mine as well, it just really flattered my hands and I'm still wearing it now.
