Rescue Beauty Lounge Black Russian

Merry Christmas Eve or Merry Christmas, depending on where you're located! Today I have another black with red glitter polish, although this one is quite different than Lippmann's Ruby Red Slippers I posted about yesterday. RBL's Black Russian is much more black with less noticeable red glitter than the Ruby Red Slippers, but it is still a wonderful shade. This applied in typical RBL fashion (2 coats), and I've got to admit, these have always had one of the best, if not the best formula of any polish I own. I'll keep this post short, because yes, it's Christmas Eve and I still have tons of wrapping and food prep to do! I hate wrapping!


  1. That's a truly gorgeous color :D RBL is really a nice polish.. they hit the nail there ;D or hows the saying? :) I love to wrap presents, probably my favorite thing about Christmas :P Merry Christmas Mary ;D

  2. That is gorgeous!

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday, Mary!

  3. This is really besutiful. I still don't own any RBL polishes. Maybe one day.

    I hope you and the family have a wonderful Christmas xxx

  4. Gorgeous!! Love this polish on you. Hope you get all those presents wrapped and have a wonderful and merry Christmas!!

  5. So pretty... I really need to jump on this RBL bandwagon.

  6. That is a stunning polish! Merry Christmas!

  7. This one is so pretty. I really like it when RBL does things like this, they should really do more glitters! Though I do love their creams quite a bit.

  8. Gorgeous nails!
    Happy Holidays!

  9. That is stunning Mary! I was sick and missed the RBL sale, aaaaaaah woe is me haha. Maybe next year.

    I'm wearing Lippmann ruby slippers tomorrow! Merry Christmas to you Mary and your family :)

  10. Man! Mary I am not sure which of the two I like better, I really like them both - but I've been a sucker for black with red glitter ANYTHING ever since my first bottle of Lubu Heels.
    Happy holidays! I hope you have a wonderful day.

  11. I didn't buy that because I thought it would look like Ruby Red Slippers. This looks very different. I hate wrapping paper. Love that polish on you. Have a blessed Christmas and a joyus holiday. Love ya.

  12. Merry Christmas to you, Mary:* Gorgeous polish<3
