Borghese – Vignetto Berry

This one was swapped to me, so I had chosen it kind of randomly from a picture.

I was so surprised to find that it was a matte! And it looks so amazing with a clear coat on top!

(Clear coat on the ring finger)

I didn’t like the chunkiness as the matte, and when the top coat was on, it was sooo gorgeous but it reminded me of 2 other polishes I have, so I’m swapping it. I am seriously running out of room, so I’m having to really fight my urges to hold onto all of these!

Borghese – Castello Blue

This is one of the new Rapido polishes that have been out for Spring. It is a grayish blue like Eyeko – Rain, so I’ll compare them for ya!

Castello Blue

Borghese – Castello Blue (index and middle) compared to Eyeko – Rain (ring and pinky)

I prefer Rain because it has a more opaque base and kind of pops a little more.

I thought since it was a Rapido polish, it would be opaque and thick, but its actually a really glossy and not so thick polish.

Borghese – Mochaccino

Okay, after this one, I want to do pastels and Easter colors all week!

I just have to get this last one in, just in case you go nail polish shopping and see these Borghese Rapido on a shelf. I didn’t want you to miss out on Mochaccino or overlook it if you like the hidden shimmer taupes, because this one is so pretty!

On the nail it will appear a little darker, and the shimmer isn’t as apparent as Chanel’s Paradoxal…

But look what lies inside! How pretty is this!?

After I wore it like that, I decided to add some pink shimmer, so I layered Orly – Fifty Four over it. Its really sheer so it just added a tiny bit of pink sparkle. I felt more Springy I guess!

It really is a nice taupe creme in the shade or from far away. I kept thinking that it was almost a mauve-ish purple gray taupe cream when I’d look at it in the shade, if that makes sense? Probably not, you’d have to see it for yourself!

It isn’t a Paradoxal dupe, although some people might refer to it that way since it has the similar taupe and purplish tone with hidden purplish shimmer. I find the shimmer to more of a mauve-ish purple shimmer though, compared to Paradoxal.

If you like it, go get it before the new Borghese Rapido displays get raided! 🙂

My favorite duochromes

At least for right now, my favorite duochromes are Nailtini Amaretto Fizz and Borghese Stellare Notte!

It was REALLY hard to photograph Stellare Notte. If you hold the bottle, you see a purple halo around the outside of the bottle and straight on is a gorgeous blue/green color. It looks just like those pretty oil spills in the parking lot. haha!

From far away I just thought it was black, but it is so stunning, you’d just have to see it in person!

Here is Nailtini Amaretto Fizz! It looks purple/burgundy straight on but in the sun, it is a gorgeous rich brown!
