It’s no secret that we’re nails-obsessed around here, and we love that RGB Cosmetics makes planet-friendly, healthy nail products. All polishes in the line are “five free,” meaning they’re made without five of the most common nail polish toxins and irritants, cruelty-free and made in the United States!
No one does neutrals quite like RGB, the eco nail care and color line that has stolen the spotlight, along with the hearts of celebrities, major publications, and nail artists. And, of course, us! Which is why we’re so excited to welcome RGB to the Beautylish. Though her background was in fashion, founder Gina Carney saw some gaps in the nail product market that needed to be filled. She wanted healthier, carcinogen-free polish that felt upscale rather than crunchy, and also noticed a need for “nude” nail colors that would work on dark skin, light skin, and everything in between. So Carney created her own line RGB, launching with collection Ten—ten iconic colors with a modern edge—in 2009. Since then, RGB has blown up. To tackle the neutrals for all skin tones, Carney collaborated with green celeb manicurist Jenna Hipp on a line called Hipp x RGB. The 2011 collection started a neutral nail craze, and quickly became one of the most sought-after nail polish lines.
