Recently, I introduced you to the new world of Borghese nail lacquers and their awesome double brushes. Since I'm such a fan, I thought you'd like to hear about the most recent Summer 2008 launch called Portofino Del Sole. The collection includes six shimmery shades that were inspired by the breathtaking landscape in Portofino, Italy — a Mediterranean port and destination for the rich and lavish.
I'm not much of a shimmer fan when it comes to my nails (especially reds or lavenders), but I'll rock just about anything on my toes. After trying out Florentine Gold, I'm smitten. Not only do I love the authentic, yellowy pale gold color, but I gave myself a quickie pedicure last night and was pleased that it didn't streak at all and that the polish dried relatively quickly. Also, I'll remind you again that the lacquers are free of DBPs, toluene, and formaldehyde — and they leave you with a long-lasting shine. What else is there to say besides, bellissima!
To read a description of each of the shades in the collection,
- Florentine Gold is a medium-toned, frosty gold.
- Portofino Gold is a shimmery pinky-gold.
- Bronzatta Gold is a pale bronze.
