Last week, Rescue Beauty Lounge restocked some of its retired colors in its latest Bring It Back promotion, where it hauls some of the long-gone shades out of the vault to give polish groupies one last chance at nabbing them.
I actually didn’t have any RBL polishes in my collection, but I had recently read through founder Ji Baek’s “Rescue Your Nails,” so I was interested in checking out her nail polish line.
Despite the steep $20 price tag, I picked up Piu Mosso, which is an intriguing polish to say the least.
In the bottle it looks like it’s a brown polish with lots of shimmer, and on the nail it looks nearly black in most light. But in reality it’s a deep blue with some subtle bronze shimmer. Think really dark pair of blue jeans. RBL actually describes it as as “inky, blue-black.”
It’s really amazing. The formula is great; I could have gone with one coat, but this is actually two, plus one coat of Poshe fast-dry top coat. In fact I did stick with one coat on my other hand and it looks fine. The brush is very thin, just FYI, which for me makes it harder to get a nice clean application at the cuticle line.
Piu Mosso is very difficult to photograph, so here’s one in my lightbox with the light shining directly on it so you can get a better sense of it.
As of this posting it is still available on rescuebeauty.com. And, just in case you were wondering, the name is a musical term meaning faster, with more movement. I like to think it’s because your heart starts beating a little faster when you look down and see this color on your nails. 🙂
