Recent NOTD: Borghese Violetto

Rapido is the quick dry line that Borghese introduced a couple months ago (you can see the display in this entry). I just got around to trying my first one, Violetto, a lilac shimmer. This one wasn't in the introductory display but showed up in the regular wall display when my Ulta re-did the Borghese section.

Violetto seemed thicker than I'm used to Borghese being; whether that was the quick dry formula or just this shade I'm not sure. I liked the color of this but not the finish; it leans toward being frosty. I used two coats under top coat.





After a day or two I got tired of looking at the brushstrokes and stamped over it with Konad plate m63 and Sally Hansen Insta Dri in Co-Bolt Blue.





I liked it better with the blue on top.

  1. I've seen some pretty Borghese polishes on internet. Is this an american brand ?

  2. That is such a pretty and delicate-looking purple! It looks especially wonderful with the SH stamped over it!

  3. Pretty color, but I agree with you - it's a little frosty. I've never tried that brand because they always seemed a little high priced to me.

  8. I think you saved it with the stamping. It almost looks like a water marble piece.
