Rescue Beauty Lounge - Fire Queen (2013, Fan Collection 2.0)

And here she is, the second polish I bought at Rescue Beauty Lounge: Fire Queen!
Like it is described at RBL:

“My color inspiration comes from Depression Era glass from the 1930s and 1940s—specifically, the pale jade color of the Fire-King line made by the Anchor Hocking Glass Company commonly referred to as “jadeite.” In a sea of imposters, no one has been able to capture the magic of the genuine Fire-King and thus it has become highly coveted since the 1960′s: a small decadence of lean times turned luxury. When you hold a piece of Fire-King up to the light it glows with history. This hue has a build-able jade jelly and the end result looks like milk glass veneers on your fingertips. Both edgy and full of vintage charm, this polish is the perfect fit for any 'Fire-Queen.’” Jaime’s desire.(RBL)

Well that just about explaines it all! Fire Queen is a lovely jelly that builds up in three/four coats and gives this lovely squishy, milky and shiny result. The formula is way better then the NailsAndNoms one. >thank heavens< It is self leveling and has a medium to long drying time in some lights it has a warm mint hue and in other light it is more of a cool colour (perhaps due to it's translucency?).

My camera makes it way too yellow here....but the pic shows that in some lights FQ does look more yellow.

This was four coats and I wore it for four days without chipping or any major tip wear.
Sooooo; RBL has redeemed itself somewhat, I am still not in love with the brand but I can appreciate the qualities of this very nice and fresh polish indeed!
