Borghese Not So Stellare Notte
As soon as I saw the bottle of Borghese Stellare Notte I was smitten.
I mean look at it. It's like an oil spill in a bottle. It's got all those beautiful colors floating around in a dark base.
On the nail... not so much.
This is two coats. Yes, there is a blue/pink duochrome quality about the shimmer, but it's kind of weaksauce. The base is much too dark. It's very nice out in the sun, but unless you're going to be outdoors 24/7 I don't think this is worth it. The formula was nice, but I still can't help lamenting how beautiful it could have been! I mean just look!
*sigh* I really hate it when the beauty in the bottle does not translate to the nail. It's always disappointing. Looks like this one is going in the purge/swap/possibly eventual blogsale pile.I know it's happened to you, so tell me about your biggest polish disappointment. I'd love to commiserate.
P.S. The poll ended, and seeing my Breakfast Club frankens was the overwhelming winner. I'm so glad you guys love me! So that's what we'll be seeing starting tomorrow. Yay!
