Rescue Beauty — brainchild of nail wizard Ji Baek — makes fantastically gorgeous nail polish (I picked up a few during their last sale). There’s also an actual salon in NYC, but I’ve never been.
Tremendous thanks to Soaper1 for her swatches and review of one of their limited edition summer shades: 360.
360 is one of three shades in RBL’s Surfs Up summer collection. The other two surfing-inspired polishes are Bangin’ (red coral) and Diddy Mow (putty green) — all cremes. This collection first went on pre-sale in March — and sold out in three days! Thanks to overwhelming demand, another presale was offered in April. The Surfs Up collection is currently available at rescuebeauty.com; the polishes are $18 each.
RBL describes 360 as a deep-water aqua blue. It applied beautifully and this photo shows two coats, plus one coat of Seche Vite. I forgot to wrap the tips of my index & pinky fingers (painting polish over the edge of the nail, to prevent the polish from shrinking back). You can see some shrinkage on those two nails, but it was caused by the Seche Vite top coat, not the polish.
Rescue Beauty has a reputation for outstanding nail polishes and these definitely meet that standard. All RBL polishes are free of DBP, formaldehyde, and toluene.
