Being a Nail Polish Matchmaker

Borghese Nail Polish as always struck me as a chic and cosmopolitan company.  Truthfully, I have no idea about them.  It’s purely on speculation.  It’s from the name, from the shape of the bottle and right down to the sophisticated colors.
Here’s ‘Bella Berry’…

Almost sounds like ‘Build-A-Bear’!  hee hee!

Just the slightest bit of tip wear after 2 days.  Enough to annoy me.  However, the polish applied easily.  I could have gotten away with 2 coats but I did three.  I have Seche Clear and then Vite on top.

A true vampy color, I just adore!

I know this will be annoying to some that I have failed to do a decent clean up.  I’m blaming it on not having enough corrector pens.  The only one I had at the time was smeared from a blue polish prior.  Eh, I’ll just admire the deep, velvety purple color instead.  I must say, vampy colors are truly the only creme polishes I love.

Before moving on to the next mani, I put on an overlay, just to play…

From one of Revlon’s newer collections, this is ‘Slipper.’  Created to be a top coat, this one WILL be showing up again later in the year on this blog.  Glittery goodness!!

Provided this had been a ‘fresh’ manicure, this would have been a complete success.  A happy marriage of Borghese’s ‘Bella Berry’ and Revlon’s ‘Slipper.’

Are you over all these ‘Twilight’ references as I am?  Do you hope vampy colors stay in vogue for a long time?  I think they are staples just like jeans and blazers; they’ll always be around.
