Rescue Beauty Lounge-Halcyon (Fan 2.0 Collection)

I just recently got into Rescue Beauty Lounge.  When I first started hoarding um, I mean collecting nail polish, $20 for a polish seemed outrageous.  But like any polish aficionado, I slowly warmed to the idea  of paying $20 and even as much as $30 for a bottle of lacquer that I really wanted.  I have only done it for two brands-RBL and Dior.  But I wouldn't hesitate to do it for a VHTF that was on my wish list.  Now that I have gone through my stash list to see which polishes I own that cost me $20+, there are actually only three RBL's and the one Dior.  The other RBL's were from a swap.  I'm not sure why you need to know all this information, but it sure made me feel better about myself!

Anywho, on to the gorgeous Halcyon by RBL!  I used two coats of Halcyon and it was very easy to apply. In the bottle you can see the pink shimmer that is in the sage green polish.  It translates very well onto the nail as well!  Some polishes show you an intense shimmer in the bottle, but no matter what you do, it just doesn't show on the nail.  This one does not disappoint.  I don't know what it is about the RBL's, but I have the hardest time capturing their true beauty!  Halcyon is way better looking in person.
One issue I had was chipping.  I used a base coat and a top coat, but I had severe chipping on my thumb and index finger on my right hand.  It happened in 20 hours of wearing Halcyon.  All my other nails still looked great and had such minor tip wear after 20 hours, that you had to look very closely to even see it.
So, I'm not sure what that means.  I did everything I know how to do, including wrapping my tips, and two nails chipped. :o/  Not the end of the world, but enough to stand up and take notice.
