Rescue Beauty Binge #3: Orbis Non Sufficit

When I first saw the announcement of the Rescue Beauty blogger colors, I was really impressed. How cool is that, to accomplish so much with your blog that a top company lets you create your own polish?!?

One of the colors I purchased during the recent 50% off RBL sale was "Orbis Non Sufficit," created by the blogger behind "The Polish Addict." I am not sure what the name means...er, the "world doesn't suffice??" But it is a very interesting and beguiling color. It looked like another dark green, kind of like Recycle. The descriptions said the color was "greyed out," and now I know what that means. The color is kind of close to a teal but not quite. I think it is kind of like the darkest green in a jungle camouflage: a dark jungly green with gray mixed into it to dull it down. If I were designing the camo, that is!

My pictures were taken in December partially overcast afternoon light.







Oh, and I can't be remiss in doing my research: "Orbis Non Sufficit" means "The world is not enough." I had to look that up, and I now remember reading that in the Polish Addict's post about her creation.

At any rate, the color is a lovely rich green in spite of being washed with grey. I don't think it's a must-have like "Recycle," but if you like rich, intriguing dark creme greens with a bit of a twist, "Orbis Non Sufficit" is worth incorporating into the greens in your collection!
