Rescue Beauty Lounge 'Poco A Poco'

Sorry about the delay in the swatches! I will have up Piu Mosso posted tonight @_@

Check out my RBL Haul about Poco A Poco and Piu Mosso HERE

Poco A Poco is a mauve-pink  with incredible golden,pink, and purple shimmer. It is soft and feminine, but it still carries a punch of color and uniqueness. The shimmer is subtle in indoor lighting, but in sunlight or any direct light, it looks like the mauve-pink is inflamed in sunlight. The shimmer is absolutely gorgeous, Ji (the owner of RBL) really outdid her self.

Formula
Like all RBL polishes, this has an amazingly smooth formula. It goes opaque in 2 coats. One coat is not all that sheer though, and if you have have nice nails that are not stained, you can pull of one coat. I find that this takes a little bit longer to dry, but that can be fixed by applying a fast drying top coat.

Swatches
*Excuse the mega crappy swatches and that little fiber that got stuck on the nail of my middle finger!






Verdict
I love everything about this polish! I love the color so much. I can't think of any dupes for this, but the closest thing to it would be Essie Demure Vixen. They are similar in that they both are mauve-pinks and have beautiful micro-shimmer. The only thing that bothers me is the drying time of the polish. I am very impatient with the time it takes for polish to dry, and this one takes longer that I would hope.Oh the the price is a factor too. At $18 a bottle, these are very expensive.

Rating: 9.5/10
Recommend? If you are a RBL fan you definitely need this and I recommend it to you!
Repurchase? Well this is limited edition unfortunately, so I don't think I would be able to repurchase it. But I think I should be fine with one bottle of this :D

What do you think of this color? Do you have any dupes for this shade?
