Last we checked in with Jenna Hipp, the self-proclaimed green celebrity nail artist was revolutionizing the world of nude polish with her Nail Foundation, a lineup of skin-tone-hued lacquers designed in collaboration with RGB Cosmetics founder Gina Carney. Her Nail Tints, sheer versions of the same complexion-matching shades, followed shortly thereafter, reviving the better-off-bare movement and causing many a style-savvy woman to give up on off-kilter colors in favor of neutral simplicity. Hipp is still championing statement-making subtlety, although she’s going for gleam this summer. Her latest HIPP x RGB creation is called Highlight, and it functions as both an illuminating topcoat as well as a simple contouring varnish when worn on its own. Multicolor shimmering spheres give the pearlescent base an iridescent quality that Hipp says works best when painted on in a single swipe down the center of nails. Add it to your manicure must-haves for June, July, and August.
