Nails and Noms has a gorgeous tangerine orange base with pink and blue shimmer. Now I don’t normally swatch my nail polish in the sun because it’s just too hard waiting for the sun to come out and in winter, forget about it – BUT Rie told me I needed to see it in the sun so I swatched all of these indoors and out. She was right!

The formula with this was a little thick for me, but not too hard to work with. I did use three thinner coats because I got a couple small bald patches. No biggie (I blame my ridges mostly) and after three coats it’s just this luscious shimmery sherbet orange. Nothing like it out there that I have ever seen!

Scrangie 2.0 is SO complex it’s hard to describe! The base is a blackened olive green/gold and it has all this beautiful multi-colored fine rainbow shimmer. Sometimes it looks darker, sometimes lighter, sometimes green, sometimes murky, sometimes gold. This is a woman after my own heart because what her favorites are are usually mine as well. So gorgeous!

The formula was excellent with this one in particular. Super creamy, thick and manageable and nearly one coat but I used two.

And just a quick extra shout-out to her because if it wasn’t for Scrangie, I might not be in this business. She was always a HUGE inspiration and I really cherish her as a blogger and person. Ok I’ll stop now. ;)

Fashion Polish features a deep black base jam-packed with red, gold and green micro-shimmer. This is a serious beauty here! I am in love with black polishes with shimmer and this one is unique because of the shimmer colors.

The formula is really great as well. Another one that is really creamy, easy to work with and extremely opaque. I used two thin coats here. Gorgeous Sam!

Kellie Gonzo is a bright and cheery pink/coral base with pink and gold micro-glitter. This is such a pretty, feminine shade and I love it. It’s one of those colors that you put on and are catching yourself staring at it all the time!

The formula was really nice, it seemed thinner to me than the others here, but I still only needed two coats for opacity. I am currently heavily into pinky corals, so it’s perfect for summer!

Liberty (in sunlight)

Liberty is a soft mint green base with super pretty pink and blue shimmer running throughout. This one truly comes alive in the sunlight where you can really see all the sparkles. It’s a more subdued shade – the shimmer isn’t as obvious with this one as with the others. It’s kind of like a mint green version of Aqua Lily (one of my top favorite nail polish shades on planet earth or any other planet).

The formula was a little thick but not too hard to work with. I did wind up with one small bald patch with two coats so I added a thin third one and it all came out even and perfect.

Collection 2.0 Collage

Overall: I am loving each and every one of these for different reasons.

Not only are these bloggers all super cool ladies, but the shades they created are all unique and pretty. You won’t see any of these shades already out there, and you can tell each one was really thought about a lot. I love blogger creations because generally they are much more interesting than brand created ones. Bloggers have seen EVERYTHING and we know what’s been done a million times and what hasn’t.

Thanks ladies for these beauties and thanks to Ji for giving them the opportunity and letting us get a little piece of them. Is that creepy sounding?

Availability: Rescue Beauty Lounge this month.

Pricing: $20.00 for 0.4 oz.

Which of these are on your list or are you lusting after?

      Those are my favs, too! RBL always does such amazing collaboration shades. Scrangie 2.0 reminds me of if Chanel Peridot and Zoya FeiFei had an olive-gold love child. Gorgeous!

    Thanks for posting! The shades are beautiful for sure, and I love blogger collaboration as well! I only picked up Scragie 2.0 in the pre-sale, and I am so glad I did, as that shade is sold out and I don’t think will be available for public sale =/ But the others are beautiful – Nails and Noms’ beauty particularly strikes my fancy =) An Accidental Interloper is also a nice shade – this really cool blue-toned gray I was also considering per-ordering. Thanks so much for the gorgeous swatches!

  • July 12, 2013

    I love all of these! At $20 a piece though I think I’m going to just have to stick to one. It’s between Nails and Noms and Scrangie 2.0. Both are insanely gorgeous and nothing like I’ve ever seen before. Decisions, decisions.

      Well Scrangie 2.0 sold out in the pre-sale, unfortunately. It went so lightening quick! Nails and Noms is a beauty though – I’m thinking of picking it up as well.

    Liberty totally reminds me of Sonia Kashuk Fairy Princess.

    • July 12, 2013

      Yes it is a little like that!

  • July 12, 2013

    looooove liberty but they’re even more expensive than deborah lippmann, jeez!

    Good lord…now I need all of these, as if I didn’t have enough polish already! Thanks for your beautiful swatches as always! :)

  • July 12, 2013

    I ordered Kellie Gonzo & Liberty in the pre-sale and cannot WAIT for them to arrive. I actually squealed yesterday when I saw the email that they shipped!

    I missed out n Scrangie 2.0 on the pre-sale and was so disappointed. Your swatches just make me want it all the more!

  • July 12, 2013

    The ladies are awesome, but although the polishes are very nice, none are original enough to make we want them. Yet, anyway, maybe I’ll change my mind, lol!

    oooh actually I am hearing that Scrangie 2.0 might be coming back, per Ji’s facebook. So hooray. I was lucky enough to get mine during pre-sale, but now it means everyone won’t have to turn to ebay or some other drastic measure to obtain! ;) So, yeah, will have to stay tuned for Ji to confirm.

  • July 12, 2013

    Hmm, pass. The only one I think is pretty is Kellie Gonzo (I really don’t like green and can’t stand orange polishes) and I’m not willing to pay $20 for one nail polish.

  • July 12, 2013

    Nails and Noms along with Kellie Gonzo!!!!

    Wow. Even the shades I personally wouldn’t wear much, I still love. So well done! Nails and Noms is a really cute name, too

    All of these are absolutely amazing!!!

  • July 13, 2013

    How does Fashion Polish compare to Butter London’s Black Knight?

    Also, Scrangie 2.0 looks like it has some similarities to Nicole by OPI – For Gold Times Sake.

  • July 13, 2013

    Fashion Polish is the standout for me. They’re all pretty, but that one’s a wow and a half!

    Yay Kelly, I love your swatches!! I’m so glad you liked the colors. I have been darn near close to biting my own nails waiting to see what other bloggers think of the RBL Blogger collection, and NailsandNoms especially! ^_^

  • July 13, 2013

    These are all gorgeous but my absolute favorite is Kellie Gonzo! I just love how juicy and sparkly it is. Fashion Polish is another one that I really love.
