RGB’s Blonde Ambition-------
After a successful partnership with celebrity nail artist Jenna Hipp that yielded a wildly popular nude wardrobe of foundation-inspired lacquers last year and a polish homage to jeans designed with the owners of the denim mecca Need Supply Co., RGB Cosmetics has not seemed to tire of the collaborative spirit. Its latest joint venture is with the platinum blonde co-owners of L.A.’s Tenoversix boutique, who, put simply, were on the hunt for a nail varnish that matched their icy flaxen strands. Brady Cunningham and Kristin Lee called their resulting polish Blonde on Blonde in reference to the Bob Dylan album of the same name, but the semi-matte, opaque, champagne-tinted cream color recalls a gamut of peroxide queens once it has gone on in two coats, from Debbie Harry to Lady Gaga. And since Redken creative consultant Guido Palau reassured us that the striking bleached-out hair color “never goes out of style” backstage at Balenciaga last season, its corresponding nail lacquer should have a lot of mileage.
