The gorgeous polishes concieved by die-hard RBL, brought to life by Ji Baek

Late last year when I had just gotten into RBL, I was able to vote for two polishes. Both of them made it into the final cut. As for which ones–that can wait. Considering at the time of this writing only about 16 precious hours are left for the pre-orderand if you don’t get them now, you will have to wait until late April.

Have you pre-ordered yet? Or did you miss it?  EIther way, let’s look closer at these four fabulous colors so you know what to order and what to get backup bottles of.  Please note descriptions and press photos of all shades are credited to the RescueBeauty.com website.

Halcyon (Fan Collection)

Danielle’s dream color is a soft, sage green with a pink glimmer of brilliant reflective shine, just like when the morning dew tenderly kisses a succulent plant. The beauty of succulents keeps her calm and serene.

Halcyon -- Shimmery serene green w/ pink shimmery goodness

Aqua Lily (Fan Collection)

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to visit the Kuda Huraa Island of the Maldives. The turquoise water is a crystal-clear sea green and what really had me spellbound was that it reflected a shimmery-pink hue from the shedding scales of the colorful, vivid, and exotic tropical fish. This color is Kay-Di Kat’s homage to her beloved mom, Lily, an Aquarius who swims like an enchanting mermaid. I imagine Lily swimming in this paradise with its mesmerizing water in the Island of the Maldives

Aqua Lilly -- Reminds me of an old-school fishtail 50's Cadillac. My 1st choice vote!

Cuprum (Cu) (Fan Collection)

The metamorphic moment when the presence of ammonia meets copper (II) transforms into a radiant blue. Cuprum is Latin for copper, and the dual nature of this element is what Neeta wanted to capture in a bottle.

Cuprum(Cu) - The geek in me saw the chemical symbol for copper first, then the gorgeous color! My 2nd place vote!

IKB: 2012 (Fan Collection)

A bright, vibrant, electric blue with blurple (blue-purple) in a jelly finish, hence, the creation of the most densely pigmented jelly-like finish I’ve ever made. Nora’s endless search for that Yves Klein signature blue (International Klein Blue) is finally over.

IKB:2012 - A crazy blue jelly that reminds me of Cobalt blue on crack

Due to an increase in raw materials and Ji’s determination to keep the quality of her polish to the standard we all know and are rabid about, these polishes will retail for $20 USD each. Like a good little RBL, I pre-ordered all four and will review them once I’ve received them in late April/early May. In the meantime, four lucky bloggers got their hands on these polishes and have reviewed them. So while you wait or wonder which ones to buy or are backup-worthy, check out the reviews from Scrangie, All Lacquered Up, Kellie Gonzo and Nails and Noms.

So are you planning on ordering? Any colors you just have to have?
