"Finding yourself in a sea of poppy fields, you toss your bike aside to lie down for a rest to swallow and inhale the beauty. Lusciously vibrant petals bob their heads up and down with the flirting wind. As a sign of approval, the glorious, piercing sunlight casts a spell and what you see is the electrifying vibrancy of a mysterious red with spots of color aglow with the sun."
Such is Rescue Beauty Lounge's own description for this gorgeous polish, Poppy, from their GOMM collection. I think it's quite fitting. It's been awhile since I loved a nail polish so immediately during and after application that I felt the need to blog about it right away.
Poppy is a gorgeous coral red that pulls a warm orange-red on me. What I loved about it was the absolutely amazing "hidden shimmer" aspect, the pink and gold microshimmer setting this polish absolutely aglow. In most subtle shimmer polishes, the glimmer only shows up under my LED lamp, but this one glows without it.
RBL's formula is basically to die for. The polish basically applied itself. Two easy coats, no staining during clean-up. I didn't need topcoat, I just did it out of habit.
Perfect "in between" color for me, capturing the warmth and glow of summer with the richness of fall.
This was a gift from a dear, dear friend and it will remain a treasure in my collection!
