Rescue Beauty Lounge nail polish is one of my safest bets for great colors and excellent performance. I'm actually waiting for a couple of their newest shades to arrive at my door as we speak, but I thought it's as good a time as any to talk about something that didn't work for me.
There's nothing wrong with Om- it's pretty, subtle and a good choice for transition into warmer weather. The finish is creamy and very appropriate for just about every place and circumstances. I think I picked Om because it reminds me of some of my mom's favorite colors of yore- there's something nostalgic and relaxing about it. But in reality the color is warmer and peachier than it appears on the Rescue Beauty Lounge website (I hoped for something rosier), and apparently there's a reason I don't wear coral and peach nail polish. They clash horribly with my skin tone, emphasizing the green undertones and simply looking unattractive. I'm guessing Om would be very flattering for redheads and probably on most of you who are much paler than me. I tried everything - one coat (too streaky), two and three (made my hands look like a green mango). It was just not meant to be.
Bottom Line: no nirvana.
