Borghese "Stellare Notte"

Ok, let me just start off by saying that you're just going to have to trust me when I describe Borghese's "Stellare Notte". I tried numerous times to capture it's incredibe duochrome in photographs, but I had no luck. Maybe if the weather was nicer (we got SNOW today!!!), I might've been able to get some pictures in direct sunlight. But I couldn't, so I guess you're just going to have to go buy this polish yourself and fall in love with it like I did! :-)

So, I purchased "Stellare Notte" about a month ago at Walgreens. It was on clearance for $1.99, so I knew I couldn't pass it up. And I'm so glad I didn't - this is without a doubt one of my top 10 favorite nail polishes, all around. And it's not a favorite just because of it's fabulous color; it also has a great small, easy-to-use brush, the consistency is perfect, it doesn't get streaky, and the dry time is actually pretty quick! Plus, no air bubbles! Score!

This is my first Borghese nail polish, but definitely not my last. I have to admit, a big reason I purchased it was because of the price. But actually, I've seen this brand at Ulta before, and their original cost is about the same as my OPI's and Essie's (so they're in my price range).

Like I said, the color is fabulous. In the bottle, depending on the light, it looks navy/black/green/teal/purple/gray. And fortunately, those same colors appear when it's on the nail. I can't stop moving my hands around, just happy to see all of the different color pigments this polish brings out depending on the lighting! Not only is this a fun color, but it's sophisticated, too. 

Bottom line: I LOVE this polish. Maybe I'm just a little excited right now because I've found a color and product that I'm 100% happy with, but I might even go so far as to saying this polish is...perfect. So perfect, I might need a back-up bottle!

(Again, I realize that in these pictures the polish just looks kind of smokey and dull. It's NOT, I promise! When the sun comes out, I'll try to get a picture of the polish in direct sunlight). For now, here's what I've got:
