This week’s shade is from RGB Cosmetics Hipp x RGB collection in F2. I have become obsessed with RGB over the last few months, it all started when a local boutique had a huge sale in their beauty department. They were getting rid of the department altogether, so what started as a typical sale became a big blowout with bottles going for $5 and BOGO. Needless to say, I now have practically all of RGB’s shades.
This shade from the Hipp x RGB Nail Foundation collection is one of four shades designed to match and/or compliment your skin tone. Green celebrity nail stylist Jenna Hipp (remember peeking into her makeup bag?) and RGB’s Gina Carney came up with the idea of developing a collection of nail foundation: the perfect nude nail color that matches every woman’s skin tone. “We wanted to develop flattering nail lacquers that would seamlessly complement hands and nails.” Just as foundation smoothes and evens the face, nail foundation offers the same coverage for the nails – taking the concept of makeup to the hands. That’s how HIPP x RGB Nail Foundation was born.
I went with F2 even though it is darker than my skin tone because I liked the pink undertones in this shade. I have an important day on Friday so I opted to go with something that was neutral but still had a little bit of color to it. As for the formula, it is free of free of harmful chemicals. There is no Formaldehyde, Toluene, DBP, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor in RGB nail polishes. Would you expect the green nail stylist to be involved with anything else? Nope. I found the formula to be really easy to work with, two coats gave me fully opaque color without streaks and it leveled out nicely.
Here are swatches from the rest of the collection; F1, F2, F3 and F4 in order. Jenna Hipp teamed up with RGB founder Gina Carney to create this HIPPxRGB Nail collection. Upon meeting, it was only a matter of time until Jenna and Gina combined their taste and expertise to create a cosmetic approach to nail color. A custom base coat, “Primer” and topcoat, “Set,” formulated specifically for Nail Foundation and RGB nail color was created. As with the rest of the product line, Primer and Set are 5-free.
As I mentioned, I’m a little obsessed with this line so expect some swatches from the rest of my collection to come soon. So what’s on your nails this week? I’ll give you a topic to discuss. What shade would you wear to a big job interview? Do you think this shade works? Let me know in the comments.
