Rescue Beauty Lounge Piu Mosso

As I said previously, I only ordered two of the Rescue Beauty Lounge “L’Oiseau de Feu” or Firebird Collection after examining the swatches on Scrangie, ALU, and AKA. I already reviewed Pizzicato. This appeared to be stand out shade of the collection. Poco a Poco made me think of the recent Essie Lion Around, so I'm waiting on comparison swatches on that one. Fortissimo just seemed kinda boring.
This mani is RBL Piu Mosso. Piu Mosso is a deep dark smoky indigo base absolutely loaded with red, orange, and pinkish shimmer (I swear there's even a little blue and green shimmer).
In low light, it just kinda looks like a black creme. A little more light makes it look inky with a bit of pinkish shimmer. In bright artificial light, the firey shimmer and blue base combine to make the polish look positively purple. The base and shimmer contrast is totally unique and interesting. The formula on this was great and really needed only one coat.
This mani is one coat Spa Ritual Lacquer Lock bc, one coat CND Stickey bc, two coats of polish, and one coat of Seche Vite tc.
These pictures were taken indoors with artificial light.


  1. Wow. I love that shimmer, it looks like fire radiating through the base colour. Quite beautiful.

  3. This is the star of the collection for sure! I love contrast shimmer so much! <3
