RBL Plie

I picked up RBL's Plie during their big sale. It thought it would be a nice neutral pinky color. Perfect for when I want to keep my nails low key.

I had numerous problems with application (some being user error). Due to my health issues I've gotten incredibly shaky and that didn't help. In all honesty I don't think the polish agreed with my Seche Rebuild base either. Once I was done I ended up banging up 2 of the same nails over and over and having to redo them. (Don't you hate that??)  I was rushing, and it seemed like the polish just didn't want to dry. Ugh. (I was rushing because I was going to see Lady Antebellum last night and had to get ready.) Once it was dry everything seemed ok, and I just continued doing what I needed to do. I ended up chipping one nail last night opening a CD. Then I had another rouge chip on my ring finger. I also noticed numerous amounts of bubbling, which was probably my fault for rushing.
Anyhow the polish is very pretty. I blends with my skin tone nicely. It was that neutral pink I'd been looking for. I think when I have more time and patience I will have a better experience with this polish.

Now here are the pictures.

I still have a handful of RBL's to try, as well as a bunch of other polishes I've gotten and have yet to use. Now I'm eyeballing all the new collections for Christmas, as well as the Burlesque Collection by OPI. 

Thanks for reading!


  1. I just tried RBL's Opaque Pink and am kicking myself for not getting Plie instead. Also I had major bubbling and dinging when I used RBL's Moulin Rouge, but I am pretty sure that was because I was rushing!

  2. I was just about to comment on your post about bubbling. Drives me crazy. I'm guessing the dry time is a little slower on Plie so my rushing was no help at all, but it is super pretty!

  3. Cute pawprint and tat! I do like that color...I always swear I'll do a RBL haul one day, but I never do. Howeve,r when I one day do it haha this is on my list!

  4. Thank you! It's such a pretty neutral. I've never been able to find something quite like it.
    Oh yes this should be on your list for sure!
