Borghese Rapid Dry polish swatches

Borghese sent me a couple of their new Rapido fast dry lacquer to review
First I am sorry about my dry hands/cuticles, I had just removed an evil glitter polish.

Siena- a very pretty bronze with gorgeous shimmer
Do not adjust your monitor, as beautiful as this color is, bronze shades give me lobster skin
I love the shimmer in this, it's multi tones of bronze with green under tones and a flush of siena
Click this one to really see the shimmer
This is 2 coats with no top coat

Next Is Vigneto a beautiful pink toned purple
It looks like a bald patch on my ring finger but it's the lighting, this is very opaque
This is 2 coats with no top coat and you can see the shimmer so well
I can see this will get a lot of use from me...it's so juicy
Both of these have the fabulous borghese brush that I personally love!
It's similar to the OPI brush but not as thick so it fans out perfectly!
Application on both shades was a snap, very smooth and even coverage.
These have a great shine without top coat so if you are in a hurry it's no problem.
Dry time is much faster than the traditional Borghese formula but not so fast as the Sally Hansen super fast so you have time to smooth it on without rushing. It was about a minute to a minute and a half to be dry to the touch and about 8 minutes until fully dry. so I think it's a great hurry up and go polish.

Flaming Gelati?

This is what happens when nail art goes wild.

I used Borghese Tutti Gelati as a base  and T32 Chez Delaney plate.
I can't remember what colors I used to stamp.
I was trying to create a sort of flame look.....yeah didn't quite work.

I like the way it turned out  none the less.
This is why I love nail art, you can almost always make a mistake look intentional.

What does it look like to you?

Random Borghese swatches

Borghese has a nice variety of colors, so I thought I'd share a few.

Biscotto Beige is pretty close to maniquine hands on me but for most it would be a nice creamy medium beige.
Mezzanotte Blue is a yummy Navy blue jelly. I used 2 coats but I'm sure a 3rd would make it opaque.
Bella Berry is a shimmery wine. I love this shade!
Plumagio Purple is more of a deep blue with purple micro shimmer. It's a beautiful color and it's camera shy.
Stellare Notte is a beautiful duochrome that flashes from it's deep charcoal base with bursts of green, blue, purple and a hint of bronze.

Do you have any favorite Borghese colors?

Borghese Tutti Gelati collection

I love Gelati....yum!
The Borghese Summer 2010 Tutti Gelati collection is just as yummy!
6 beautiful Jelly/sheer shades of summer fun!
These are all sheer or jelly but they are Gelati so they should be. :o)
I admit I've only had a couple of Borghese prior to this, but these colors are so pretty.
I love the brush too, it's wide but not painting the barn wide and the formula is very nice.
All pictures are 2 coats no top coat and are taken in a lightbox.

Limoncello is a sweet pale cool tone yellow sheer with shimmer.


Pistacchio is a drooly slightly sheer jelly-ish medium green with awesome shimmer.

Tutti Gelati is a perfect bubblegum pink with silver shimmer. I love this one a lot!

Menta (My favorite) is a gorgeous sheer shimmer aqua green. It's an unusual color and although I love it on it's own I want to play with layering it as well.


Berry Confezione is a bright almost neon purple jelly. I love a purple jelly.


Maraschine is a fun coraly red jelly and isn't it just tasty looking!

I really think this is a fun summer collection and definitly unique in a great way!
Which is your favorite?
