Borghese Tutti Gelati Collection

    Good morning, Dear Reader!

    I was out and about taking care of some errands this morning, and I ran into the new Borghese limited edition collection, which I think is called Tutti Gelati. But who knows, I never remember the names of drug store collection correctly, do I? I didn't - I was corrected, thank you!

    Anyhow, it had six shades, three of which I have hear to show you. The others were a tealy blue shimmer that looked sheer and wasn't too unique, a melon creme that was totally not unique, and a six so forgettable I don't even recall anything about it an hour later.

    The sun was fading in and out for the swatches, and they're the best natural light I was able to get.

    Limoncello is a delicate yellow shimmer, and I used it over one coat of Orly White Out. I used three coats of Limoncello - is was okay at two, the third really gave it depth.

    Pistacchio is a great green shimmer, but it really needs to go over an opaque base. I did not use one, and it took five coats to completely eliminate VNL, which find just awful with a green.

    The one I'm wearing is Tutti Gelati, a pink with a really cool subtle shimmer. The base color is not terribly unique, but the shimmer is. It required three coats.

    These all applied really well and were easy to control, so I am happy with them. I just know that next time, Pistacchio needs a white base for me.

    The other thing I found while running around was Milani nail art pens, and I grabbed a couple. I'll show you how those are this week.

    That's what I have for you for now, Dear Reader. Until next time, love and nail polish to you!

    Added half an hour later:

    I added decals to my mani, and the sun popped out for a better picture of Tutti Gelati's shimmer, so I thought I'd tack it on here.
