I learned how to make a shark face on facebook last night. I spent something like 40 minutes posting it in various groups I belong to and discussing it with like-minded folk. I learned how in my perfume group, and honestly I thought everyone in the word would think it's the coolest thing, but only a select handful appreciated the awesomeness that is fb shark head. Some of you read this and you know who you are. ;) I had to bow out of one particularly entertaining conversation (seriously) because it was almost 11pm and my nails weren't just going to paint themselves.
Incidentally, or not, because this is such a terrific color, I'm wearing the same color I'm about to show you.
I would have to say that Rescue Beauty Lounge is top two of my favorite polish brands, though I've only become familiar with it within the past few months. The collections are so inspired, and the colors remarkably beautiful, and whenever I wear one I feel like I've got something as close to fine art as you're going to get in this industry on my hands. This is Piu Mosso, from Fall 2011's L'Oiseau de Feu collection, and a part of this year's BiB4. I've been lemming after this color almost since I knew it existed, and I jumped on it once the presale alerts were sent out.
Too many? Sorry, I'm just completely jazzed about this color. Piu Mosso is a very dark, murky, saturated midnight blue alit with red, orange, and gold shimmer. The shimmer is less visible on the nail than in the bottle, but that's how it's meant to be-- inspired by the stages of a hurricane and reminiscent of the last vestiges of the sun peeking through the darkened clouds. It's gorgeous, and I'm only briefly going to touch on the fact that it's also a terribly sophisticated shade. And, it's a one coater.
RBL's BiB4 sale has officially gone live, and Piu Mosso is available here.
