The nail polish you need this winter
I am pleased to share that my collaboration nail polish with Rescue Beauty Lounge is now available to the public! Woohoo!!
Introducing Sanguine. Here is the product description:
The color I crave is a juicy jelly a la Starfish Patrick with a bright, burgundy base. It is luminous, like Poco a Poco, illuminated by the soft, peached pink glow and subtle flashes of orange. The color is vibrant, bold, and spirited. At once bright and sparkling, mysterious and dark”. –Lygie’s craving.
It isn’t technically possible for a jelly to hold shimmers and flashes, so we’ve altered the base to a smooth, gliding, non-streaky mica base, which we punched with sparkles. If peachypolish.com is raspberry, this is its brighter, sparkly cranberry cousin.
The process began about a year ago when I learned that I was selected as a finalist for the Fan Collection 3.0. It was such a surprise! I submitted my inspiration board on a whim and was thrilled that it grabbed the attention of Ji and the RBL team.
An online voting process selects colors that make it into the Rescue Beauty fan collections. The voting process was intense, but I persevered in the end as one of the seven chosen to collaborate on a polish for the 3.0 collection. I am still humbled by how many people supported me and voted for my nail polish dream to be created with a company I admire.
Then the fun began. Ji and the RBL team sent over some test samples. It turned out that the formula that I asked for was not technically possible, who knew! However, the test samples sent were so beautiful I was happy to get the chance to experiment with them. You could see how each color drew from my inspiration board - the depth, the luminosity. Eventually, I fell for one - the bright, sparkling beauty seen here.
I am probably biased, but this color is pretty perfect for the winter months. The depth of shimmer in this vibrant shade will continue to surprise and delight you. Also, the formula is so smooth and easy to apply - it is (almost) opaque in one coat!
