|No flash, lightbox.|
About a month ago, Walgreens was having a wicked clearance on a few Borghese polishes and I picked one up called Stellare Notte. It caught my eye in the fluorescent aisle because I distinctly saw duochrome shimmer flashing at me out of the bottle. Sold!
Once I got it home though, it sat in my untried drawer until today. After trying another one of Borghese's shades (remember Almondine and that awful, terrible brush?) I put off wearing it.
My curiosity couldn't handle it though. Today I busted out this interesting dark beauty.
The application was fantastic, and the brush in this particular bottle was a bit better. No bad bristles but the cut on the brush was quite jagged and rough, like a piranha had chomped on it.
|Flash, lightbox. See how that shows off the teal?|
Stellare Notte has a blackened base, but the shimmer doesn't shift the way I typically see duochromes do. It's more like there's purple and teal shimmer coexisting in one polish, but you see one of the colors better depending on the lighting instead of a huge shift that depends on the angle at which you look at it. (Does that make any sense?)
|No flash, lightbox. Purple! Glorious purple!|
Anyways, it's really beautiful. If you like dark, sultry, seductive polishes that provide a wink of purple and teal- this is your lacquer. Not bad for a $2 score, eh?
All pictures were taken with 1x Essie First Base, 3x Stellare Notte, 1x CND Super Shiney.
Have you tried Borghese Stellare Notte? What's your favorite dark polish?
