This was my first time trying RGB nail polish. I found them online after googling around, trying to find a unique, deep green color.
I saw a picture of Sea and couldn’t get it out of my mind. I bought a bottle of that and, two bottles of their nail foundation in F3 in the hopes of finding a replacement color for my favorite (discontinued) neutral.
Cool packaging! They come in these nifty little boxes, have rectangular shaped bottles and small, easy-to-hold applicator tops.
The formula is free of formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor and formaldehyde resin.
Pretty pricey. 18 bucks for one bottle! The price you pay for such nice packaging, and less (potentially harmful) chemicals, I guess.
Out the box, the color looked a bit separated. I’m not sure if I got old polish or if it’s always this way (not having the aforementioned chemicals in the ingredient mix and all). After a few shakes, it was good to go though.
After trying both colors, I would say the application is easy. It goes on smooth and the color is pretty opaque in one coat.
Sea is lovely. Can’t wait to use it again, next time on my fingernails.
F3 is more brown then I hoped for but, it’s nice enough. I used two coats here, with a basecoat (Orly Bonder) and topcoat (Poshe). I did notice a slight difference in vibrancy when adding the second coat, so maybe I’ll stick to one coat in the future for a more muted tone.
My manicure lasted about 4 days before it started chipping.
I did do dishes, so there’s that.
If you’re interested to try the nail foundation in F3 on your nails, I bought the second bottle to give away!
