Borghese Nail Lacquer - Stellare Notte

*Post originally written by Olivia J on The Unknown Beauty Blog. If you see this post elsewhere, it has been stolen!**

The name evokes a romantic dinner under a moonlit starry sky slurping the same string of spaghetti with your lovely and embarrassingly glance away as your lips meet.  Okay, I was thinking of Bella Notte from the animated film Lady and the Tramp but this polish actually conjures up romance and sophistication.  Maybe, because it comes from Borghese, a once cosmetic counter brand that now markets its nail products at drugstores.

You would think that once a line downgrades to a drugstore brand, the quality is gone.  Well, I did think this because I adored Borghese cosmetics when I was a teen and they had the greatest Christmas GWP's way back.  But that is another story and this is about the nail polish.  Is it good?

And, yes it is.  The polish has the quality of another high end brand which I adored-Versace.  Versace had that "rock and roll" look and feel to their polish while Borghese has that Italian romantic sophistication.  For about $8USD you get a polish with an extra-wide and firm but not stiff brush that easily allows a smooth and fast application even on the largest nail on the hand-the thumb.  The colors are clear, bright, and non-fading.  Two coats will give you great color and three coats would be too many especially if you use a base and topcoat.  Drying time is not super quick but quick enough to allow you to use your hands within a half an hour.  (This is without the use of a fast drying topcoat.)  I haven't had any problems with bubbling or chipping but your mileage may vary.

The color of Stellare Notte looks like a duochrome and really nothing exciting, at least to me making me skip it the first time around.  The second time got me but I wasn't really sure about it until I applied it.  The main colors are teal green and purple but with the changing of the light source, it can go from teal green to emerald green to silver purple then to purple.  Very mesmerizing and classy.
