Rescue Beauty No More War (with extras!)

With the new Rescue Beauty collection for spring becoming available, I started thinking about my Rescue Beauty polishes and deciding what to order.  No More War is possibly my favorite of all–it’s a soupy, pea green with tons of yellow.  It’s so pretty and so weird, I hadn’t worn it in a while.

I decided it was high time to take some pictures of it-it’s somehow bright (I guess because of all of the yellow), and I don’t tend to reach for it during the fall and winter.  It goes on nicely with thin, glossy coats, but I do use three coats for opacity.  It’s a unique color, which is pretty rare.  Just as a note, it is much more murky and jangly, and flirting with ugly, than the Chanel Khakis that followed it.

I wanted to use crackle polish over it, and based on recent experiences, I think that crackle polish works best over a glitter polish.  I think it’s something about how the glitter creates a rough surface that allows the crackle to separate better.  So, I added a layer of Chanel’s Illusion D’or-it’s really nice over No More War, since it’s a golden, sparkly glitter that picks up the golden color in No More War.

Then I added China Glaze’s Broken Hearted.  This may be the crackle polish that I have used the most-it goes with a lot of other colors.  Over No More War, it’s a total contrast–girly, flowery color over dirty army green.  The sparkles came out just enough between the cracks to catch the light.  I was pretty happy with this-it’s a mid-spring, vibrant mix of colors and textures.
