Whew, that was a ridiculous blizzard we had! We got SO much snow! And although an exact measurement was hard to calculate because of the high wind we also had, estimates for the snow accumulation are between 50 and 70 centimetres (that's between 20 and 27 inches, for those not familiar with centimetres)! It was crazy! We lost power for about 16 hours and then our internet was down for another 8 after that. I feel like I'm finally back to civilization, haha.
Anyways, now I can get back to your regularly scheduled posting. Today I'm showing you a lemming of mine that I recently killed - Rescue Beauty Lounge Scrangie. We all know who Scrangie is, so she doesn't even need an introduction. She paired up with Rescue Beauty Lounge in 2009 to create a stunning polish that's basically been on the HTF list ever since.
Let's take a look!
Scrangie is a blue-leaning purple base with lots and lots of iridescent blue-green shifting shimmer. Scrangie created this polish using combination of her favorite colours in order to mimic the wings of a scarab beetle.
My friend Rebecca posted about this polish just a few days ago and she had some problems with the formula/coverage. I on the other hand, didn't experience any of those problems. In fact, my bottle of Scrangie was a dream to apply and I only needed two coats.
So I started searching some other blogs for reviews and found mixed opinions on the formula - some had a hard time like Rebecca did, and some said it was a dream to apply, like I found. Strange. Maybe it's just a difference in production batches or something?
I had to include this flash photo just to show how glowy and pretty the blue/green shimmer is.
Scrangie is discontinued, but I found my bottle on a blog sale for $20, which is the regular price of RBL polishes, so I got a really good deal. But if you're looking for it, I would suggest that you prepare yourself to pay more than that.
I wish I owned more RBL polishes, but I can't justify the $20 price tag, especially when the shipping to Canada is another $18.50. AND the polishes are only 12ml. I mean, I don't mind paying extra when polishes are discontinued and have reached HTF status (case and point: RBL Scrangie), but for an everyday polish, I just can't do it. And there's a number of RBL polishes on my wishlist, some of which are even available right now, but I just can't pull the trigger!
I guess now that we're on the topic, we'll end out this post with a discussion! What do you think about "luxury polish brands"? Do you have a cut-off price as to what you're willing to pay for one bottle of polish?
