Today I want to show you my first Borghese polish, called Almondine. My pal Mae sent this to me, and it's a bit of a oddity. I really don't think I've ever seen a polish quite like this one, but the effect is quite subtle and will probably be appreciated by the wearer alone.
|Look cloooooser! Isn't that hidden shimmer interesting?|
Speaking of brushes, this one leaves a lot to be desired. Since it's my first Borghese, I'm not sure if it's typical of all their polishes but it was the first time where I thought, "Hmmm. This brush really hampers my ability to paint my nails neatly. Cheese and crackers, it looks like a gibbon tried to give me a mani." The brush comprised of stubby hairs that were all of uneven length that really made even strokes across my nail awkward.
So while I loved this clean, deceivingly complex color... applications and brush are terrible enough where I'm not sure I'd recommend it. I have a bottle of Stellare Notte in my untried polish bin, but now I'm apprehensive- I'd hate to use another brush like this one!
What do you think of Borghese polishes? They just came out with a new collection and I really want Euro Green... but not if all the brushes and formula are like this one.
Thanks Mae for this fascinating polish!
