Purple Friday: Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause

For today's Purple Friday post I am reaching back a few years and pulling out a Rescue Beauty Lounge polish that has been lanquishing in my untrieds because I have waaay too much polish. No real reason for this particular polish except I had pulled it out recently as a potential manicure option for an out of town friend. And since it was still sitting around in (relatively) close reach, I figured-- why not use it? This week the Huskies take on Portland State, an FCS school from Oregon, and while this should be another "easy" win for the Huskies, last year Portland State shocked a lot of people and beat our cross state rival, WSU, in their opening weekend. So anything could happen! Theoretically we should be able to score enough points early that it's not really a contest, but we'll see, as the Huskies had a slow start last week against Idaho (though ultimately prevailed without a whole lot of trouble). Hopefully we can do a little better this week! 

Rescue Beauty Lounge Pause is a gorgeous medium dark purple with pink shimmer. The formula was good, though the first coat was a touch streaky. Pause built up nicely but I did use three coats to make sure I had the coverage I wanted. Two coats probably would have been fine if my nails had been shorter, but the thinner RBL formula + the small brush + wide nail beds means I needed three coats. But I didn't have any issues with it! 

Again, not thrilled with my photos (whyyyy is it soooo hard to photograph purples?!) but I just need to keep working at it! The color actually looks pretty good, at last on my screen. Pause is certainly a very pretty color; I don't know if I'm totally in love with it. I'm not really sure why, because I have been looking forward to using this color, and while it's lovely it's not resonating with me this week. Hopefully the game is a bit more exciting! 

Go Dawgs! Beat the Vikings!

I feel like my photos greyed this out just a titch (or at least looked like it on my camera screen...)
