Borghese - Almondine

Ohhhh Almondine... finally back in my hands! I have been literally obsessing over this polish for weeks maybe months! & I'm happy to say I'm the proud owner of it and it is worth it, if you are into nude polishes!

Long story short, I used to own this polish way before I started my nail polish addiction "hoarding", but for some odd reason I got rid of it, I vaguely remember it was application issue, back in the day I expected nail polishes to cover in 1 coat and this one didn't make the cut! So it went bye bye and then I wanted it back and went in the hunt for it.. and here it is!





 BEST NUDE EEEEEVEERRRR!!!!!


I extended the mani by adding Orly Mermaid Tale from the Flash Glam FX Collection, this reminds me of a sandy beach with jewels..





Hope you guys have a great day!

Til next time...

    1. Yes, the texture is what makes its so special I think... I love it with the glitter too! I know I'm still trying to figure out what the problem is, someone told me to remove my blogroll so I will see if that helps

  4. I love the little brown specks it has. It does make you think of sand.
    I don't mind applying a second coat of polish, but three is my absolute limit.

    1. yes those little specs make it so unique in my opinion. I think I go up to 4 coats but it doesnt happen often, mostly 2 or 3.

  19. I like this so much! But I got the feeling it is pretty similar to Essence Breaking Dawn.. wish there was someone that owns both so it can be compared :(.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I don't think I have ever seen Essence Breaking Dawn, I searched for a swatch but was not able to find one :( Is it the one from the Vampire collection? The Dawn is Broken? If so, I own both of them, they are not the same,the colors are very different the finish is similar though.. but I can do a comparison if you like :)
