Scrangie by Rescue Beauty Lounge

The day is finally here! Today I get to reveal the color of the color I designed for Rescue Beauty Lounge!!

Here she is, Scrangie by Rescue Beauty Lounge. Please view the pictures full size!

Shade:
Isn't it beautiful?! It's a medium blue-based purple with green iridescence and green microshimmer. It's a combination of my two favorite polish colors, purple and green. The green iridescence in this is mesmerizing. It sits on top of the polish like fairy dust, and it lights up to a bright, glowing green in the sunlight. It has a near-duochrome effect, and when I wear it I can't stop staring at it.

This polish has been almost a year in the making and it's been worth the wait. My original vision was to have a polish that mimics the color of a beetle's wing with a base of bold violet, something to capture the green and multichromatic iridescence of beetle shell or butterfly wing while sitting on a vivid purple flower. I made change after change after change, I'm very impressed with Ji Baek's patience and understanding! I was very picky with this polish, even making changes to it up to the very last minute! Ji has been so understanding and accomodating through this entire process and all my pickiness, I really have to thank her for all she's done. She's made my dream come true! So, Ji, if you're reading this, thank you for everything!

I am very happy with how it turned out. Sure, it's not the Scrangie version of Clarins 230 that I dream about every night (hahaha! Someday!) but it is MY polish, my dream, my fantasy... And drop dead gorgeous, to boot :) You won't find a color like this on any salon's shelves!

Scrangie by Rescue Beauty Lounge is part of Rescue Beauty Lounge's fall collection of limited edition blogger-designed polishes. The other polishes were designed by Stephanie of Polish Addict and Michelle of All Lacquered Up. These will be available soon on Rescue Beauty's website, and I'll be sure to keep you posted on availability!


This collection also includes a MATTE TOPCOAT!!! I think matte topcoats are the way to go since you can transform ANY polish into a matte with one. I can't wait to show you Matte Scrangie!

After the other lovely bloggers reveal their creations, I'll have swatches of all three. I just know they're going to be awesome. Bloggers have good taste! ;-)

  17. Ok Scrangie, you are officially my nail polish hero.

    *bows head to her magesty with eternal gratitude and respect*

    I have never actually aquired an RBL other than swapping for it. However, I will not flinch at buying one (ok, 2 let's be realistic, maybe two) bottles of this polish.

  21. I have been fighting against the temptation to buy RBL. It's too expensive, over my price cap, etc. But now I HAVE to get this color. At least I'll have time to save up for a haul.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi Scrangie!

    In the last six months, I have become obsessed with nail polish and have been fervently reading your blog to catch up. I consider it my favorite resource for all things nail related.

    With this announcement of yours, I just couldn't be a silent reader any longer: this color is AWESOME! There is nothing like it and I cannot wait to place my order.

    Thanks so much for the energy you put into your posts and for sharing your lovely nails with us readers.

    Have a beautiful day! : )

  47. Hi Scrangie, this is such a pretty color! I have just found out about you!! I know... I cannot explain that, especially when I have been nail-obsessed since shortly after I learned to walk!! I have to ask, and I am sure you have answered this a thousand times so please just direct me to where I can find the answer - how do you get your application so utterly perfect in the cuticle area??
    Wow... I can see me spending tooooo much time on nails from now on *grin*

    ReplyDelete
  48. That is just awesome!! Lovely colour, and amazing that you have a polish all your own ... :)

    ReplyDelete
  49. Absolutely lovely! You deserve your very own color, and I love it.

    ReplyDelete
  50. I don't own any RBL polishes, solely because of cost, but dang I'm going to splurge on yours. Gorgeous.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Oh. My. God. My jaw literally dropped open the second I opened your blog. WOW and THANKS, SCRANGIE!!!! Can't wait to own it!!

    ReplyDelete
  52. oooohh pretty!! you must be so thrilled that your vision worked out really well :)

    ReplyDelete
  53. LOVE the color! It's so gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Whoa, that is AMAZING! Definitely have to get that when it's out! Congrats!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. I'd have bought it just so I could say, "I'm wearing Scrangie" but am overjoyed it's such a kick-ass color to boot!

    ReplyDelete
  56. That is STUNNING. Amazing job! When that comes out, I'll place my very first RBL order. :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. It's stunning!! So unique, a perfect reflection of you! ♥ it

    ReplyDelete
  58. you guys are so fab!! congrats scrange! you did an awesome job. can't wait to get the whole collex and i haven't even seen them all! love ya girl!!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Love it~such a gorgeous color!

    ReplyDelete
  60. I think you're going to convert everyone to RBL. It's sooooo expensive for a polish BUT I have to have this. It's like the polish mermaids would wear if they wore polish...or were real :). AMAZING!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh I Love, Love, Love! Congratulations! Such a beautiful polish colour :)

    ReplyDelete
  62. wow! very beautiful and original!

    ReplyDelete
  63. You have made a polish that consists of pure win!! I usually am not interested in RBL polishes, but I'm sooo getting this one :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. Wow! This color sure is pertty!

    ReplyDelete
  65. OOOOOOhhhh Myyyy Gooooooood! She's amazing! I'm so excited!!!:D

    ReplyDelete
  66. Congrats, Scrangie!

    I really expected a vampy, darkish color and am pleasantly surprised to see a lighter, brighter side of you!

    The green shimmer seems reminiscent of BB Couture's but with the added duochrome green flash, it looks distinctly Scrangie!

    ReplyDelete
  67. That is just beautiful Scrangie! :)

    ReplyDelete
  68. Gorgeous, love the colour, very unique and very you. Congratulations on such an amazing opportunity.

    ReplyDelete
  69. WOW. I rarely buy RBL as I rarely wear the same color enough to justify buying a $18 polish, but this is so pretty I may not be able to stop myself from buying two. Way hot Miss Scrangie!!!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Really pretty! Congratulations! :)

    ReplyDelete
  71. I don't have words for how gorgeous this is, so I'm just going to agree with what everyone else said! I'll definately be picking up a bottle of Scrangie (that sounds so weird lol) when it comes out!!

    ReplyDelete
  72. As I'm a sucker for duochrome nail polishes, I very love it. I can't buy it because RBL website requires like 50$ of shipment to my country but I would buy it if I could.

    ReplyDelete
  73. Sexy, sexy, sexy, Scrangie! That's one of the most beautiful colors that I've ever seen on a woman!

    ReplyDelete
  74. Just gorgeous! Would love to see each of you swatch all three as colours look so different against different skin tones. This is perfect though and I want it!

    ReplyDelete
  75. It is gorgeous, straight up beautiful.

    ReplyDelete
  76. That is what I'd certainly call a stunner. It's so mesmerizing that you give it a double-take. You should be very proud of your creation! Congrats! :)

    ReplyDelete
  77. That's such a gorgeous color! And also very unique. I can't wait to pick mine up.

    ReplyDelete
  78. congratulations. what an honor it must be for you to have a polish created for you! i've never tried rescue beauty lounge polishes, but i will now ;-) can't wait to try your new color!

    ReplyDelete
  79. AMAZING and Congrats!! You are awesome and so is that color!

    ReplyDelete
  80. Absolutely stunning! *licks screen*

  83. Your polish child has been born and she's a beauty. I will definitely be ordering one. I can't wait for her Christening! Congrats girl you deserve her.

    ReplyDelete
  84. I so love this colour. Great work!
    This was also what I thought all the time: A purple with green shimmer is what is missing in my nail polish collection.
    Unfortunately here in Germany I don't have the opportunity to get RBL...

    ReplyDelete
  85. omg LOVE this color!!!! Congrats!

    ReplyDelete

  90. Wantz! Sooooo beautiful!! Now how to get my hands on a RBL here in Holland :S Hhhmm...

    ReplyDelete
  91. Wow, that's really amazing. Great job Scrangie, and congrats. They should have bloggers make the colors all the time, because they know what's hot more than anyone else!

    ReplyDelete
  92. Exquisite! Do you know if it will be available for pre-order? If it mesmerizes me this much on my monitor, I can't even imagine how amazing it's going to be in person!

    ReplyDelete
  93. Well done dear Scrangie, well done!!! Congrats to you and to RBL for creating this beautiful polish :)

    ReplyDelete
  94. YOU GO GIRL!! It's TOO gor-jo.
    It'll be my first RBL, too!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Hi Scrangie,

    Love the polish. I visited the RBL site to see if it's there,m but is' not.. :(
    So, considering you have an extensive polish collection and connections with those who also have huge connections, can you think of any dupes to this colour: http://www.flickr.com/photos/24617799@N06/2400000003/ ?
    I bought it while in Japan years ago but left it there and now that my polish obsession has resumed, I need it...!
    Any suggestions would be welcome!
    Thank you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  96. Wow, that's a beautiful color, Angie! I had no idea you were so into polish, but I really like your site. Great pictures! I'm excited for you.

    ReplyDelete
  97. Wow wow wow just wow!
    I will order that one, love it!!!

    ReplyDelete
  98. I love this color,but is it the same as Orly Rio Nights & Pure Ice Heart Breaker combine do you think you can do comparison swatches?

    ReplyDelete
  99. That's bad ass. It makes me nostalgic.

    ReplyDelete
  100. I am the 111th person to this party (unfashionably late!). I am so excited for you. What a beautiful polish. A perfect choice. Can't wait to try it out for real. Imagine all your little readers with Scrangie nails, how cool is that?!

    ReplyDelete
  101. congrats! it is beautiful :)

    ReplyDelete
  102. This is drop-dead gorgeous! I have promised myself a one-off RBL International (gulp) order in September as I am celebrating a big birthday. Teal, Scrangie and Mismas are definitely on the list. Well done!

    ReplyDelete
  103. Love it, Scrangie, this will be my first RBL purchase too. Can't wait till it's available!

    ReplyDelete
  104. is there any way we'll be able to get this in the uk? :( it's beautiful

    ReplyDelete
  105. That is gorgeous! I love it!
    *drools/dies*

    ReplyDelete
  106. Aghh, why must RBL be so expensive. Love the color though!

    ReplyDelete
  107. This is gorgeous!! I just came across it on the Rescue Beauty Lounge site. Congratulations :) That is really exciting you got to design your own polish!!

    ReplyDelete
