ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – RGB Cosmetics “1996″ Need Supply Co

rgb cosmetics 1996 need supply co denim blue nail polish 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

When the boyfriend & I bought our house a few years ago, we started a tradition of hosting Un-Xmas parties. You see, I’m not big on Christmas but wanted to throw a party around the holidays with no presents, white elephant gift exchanges, decorations or goofy sweaters. And so Un-Xmas was born. Well now that we have our keg fridge and a fresh keg of Christmas Ale, we decided to inaugurate the Un-Xmas in July party.

The party is today and since dressing for the occasion means no holiday themed items, that includes my nails. I recently got my hands on a new shade from RGB Cosmetics called 1996, created to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Need Supply Co. and it seems like the perfect un-holiday shade.

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – RGB Sea

rgb sea nail polish bottle rgb cosmetics sea 365 of Untrieds is my personal challenge to weed through the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

It’s been a while since I’ve worn a rich, dark green. Green is my favorite color to wear but I seem to transition from dark to light & bright throughout the seasons. An emerald green just feels too Holiday in the middle of summer.

However, I’ve had RGB Cosmetics Sea sitting on my desk, longing to be worn, for way too long now and I just had to give in.

***Edited to add – this was supposed to go live last night but apparently I don’t know how to read a calendar. Apologies for the delay.

ALU’s 365 of Untrieds – RGB Cosmetics Dove

rgb dove nail polish bottle 365 untried rgb cosmetics Welcome to the launch of 365 of Untrieds my year long nail polish challenge. I’ve been inspired by one of my favorite bloggers, Melissa from The Daily Nail to take on the task of a daily blog project.  365 of Untrieds is just as the name implies, a series about all the polishes in the ALU stash that I’ve been wanting to try but just haven’t gotten around to.

Whether it’s something I’ve been meaning to wear but haven’t made time for, a polish I bought on a whim and forgot about or a color from a collection that I didn’t have the time to review, this will be my way of getting through my overwhelming stack of untested polishes to help me find new loves and weed out unnecessary bulk.

I’m kicking off the challenge with a nail polish from RGB Cosmetics that has been sitting on my desk for way too long.  It’s a shade I was so excited to try when it arrived in the mail but I kept pushing off in favor of other colors.  So to stop it from mocking me on a daily basis, I give you RGB Dove.

RGB-Minty-Holiday-9-bottle The mint green polish train isn’t slowing, are you still on board? I know I am! Give me more, give me more!! RGB Cosmetics announced their holiday offering, Minty, today on their Twitter account which makes it a great time for me to introduce it to you.If you recall, when I reviewed RGB’s Fall collection I was a bit let down by the lack of uniqueness as compared to the Pre-Fall colors.  Well Minty certainly piqued my interest.  As if a green exciting me is news, what really gets me is that I have yet to find any true dupes among the ones I own.  You won’t find me complaining about that.  Check out Minty along with its closest living polish relatives, after the jump!

RGB Cosmetics Fall 09 Swatches & Review

RGB Cosmetics, RGB nail polishI discovered RGB Cosmetics when I saw their Pre-Fall Collection polish, Steel, featured in Allure. Of course, “Pre-Fall” meant there would be more polishes coming our way for the season. The Fall collection recently launched and includes Cognac, Crimson and Doll.Quite a few Fanatics have inquired about the Fall shades and they have a more traditional feel than what we saw in Pre-Fall. With the popularity of dark green and metallics this season, I was hoping to see a bit more edge though I did find myself drawn to Cognac (far left). Check it out along with the rest of the collection after the jump!
