Product Review: Borghese Nail Lacquer

Earlier this year, Borghese launched a nail care division, and they have created a collection of amazing products. Without going into each and every item, the main event is their nail lacquer ($7.59). The creamy and self-leveling polish (this means that it manages to somehow side-step streaking) comes in 48 shades that range from pale pink to deep melons and browns.

What's great is that they are free of DBP, toluene and formaldehyde, but what makes them stand apart in a crowd is the coolest brush I've ever encountered.

They call it duale curve tip, because it contains two brushes that are fitted side by side in the handle so that it covers your entire nail bed in one fell swoop. OK, so I'm exaggerating a little bit — it covers all of my nails besides my wide thumbnail all at once.

The polishes contain proteins (to hydrate and strengthen), olive leaf extract (to seal in moisture), ground up semi-precious jewels (for intense shine) and Vitamin E (for a silky texture). The lacquer is creamy, brilliant and dries fairly quickly. For the large bottles, I also think the price is fair. Think you'd be interested in trying out a new Borghese nail polish?

I bought some this weekend at CVS in a great coral/orange shade for my toenails. I love the brush and the polish dries so glossy and shiny. I heart it!

this sounds great! I love painting my nails, so a polish that make s the process easier (and therefore more fun), is definitely for me. anyone know how long-lasting/chip-resistant the color is?

The brush intrigued me and scared me! But if Bella gets the seal of approval I'm gona check it out! I hope it works. I have an issue with streaking or bubbles in my polish after it dries, even if I use thin coats..

I haven't seen the colors they have. That is really how I determine if I like nail polish lines, it's all about the colors.

I've never tried these, but I'd definitely be interested. I've seen them before at Walgreen's too. They come in a ton of good colors.

I don't think the price is so far out there, I just bought a Nars polish, and it was def way, way more, so if it is that good, it is def worth it!

I might try it if I see it. I don't like to paint my own nails because it always turns out bad, but I might try with this since it sounds so awesome!

I've glanced at these a few times but the price has been putting me off (esp since I'm able to get Essie, OPI & China Glaze for half-price)
