Rescue Beauty Lounge Catherine H

I won Rescue Beauty Lounge Catherine H in a GildedNails some time back, and got finally got it in the mail day before yesterday. I wore it yesterday and today, and though it got beaten up pretty well by all the cleaning I've been doing, I do love it. It glided onto my nails with very little effort, and barely needed two coats. A bottle shot is on the left, and I definitely encourage you to click and enlarge it, though my pictures don't show all the different colors of shimmer in this polish nearly as well as they should. However, I think I managed to capture the general idea. :)

I'm pretty impressed with this polish. Though it's not as shiny as I might have liked, even with top coat, it held up remarkably well throughout the hours of heavy-duty cleaning I've done today and yesterday. Even on my right hand (my dominant hand), I have only four tiny chips and some tipwear. In fact, I'm kind of surprised I didn't break a nail - but glad! My nails are nubbins as it is. As you can see, the cleaning also took a toll on my cuticles and fingers...sorry about that. 

I'm going to be away for the rest of this afternoon, tomorrow, and Sunday, so I think I'm going to wear some leopard print Nail Fraud I won in a giveaway. I hope it lasts through the weekend, but if not, I'm taking my emergency mani kit with me! I'll be taking my computer as well, so you can look for a post tomorrow or Sunday, though probably not both days. Have a great weekend!
