Borghese Mediterraneo Sea

I'm not usually a fan of Borghese. In fact, I've been very disappointed by their polish. There is something about the formula that I don't care for. I did get a great one though. I got this next polish from my friend Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes.

Mediterraneo Sea
Mediterraneo Sea is a medium blue base with silver, magenta, and silver glitter. This dries matte, but you can apply top coat.

I actually prefer this with top coat, but that's just me. I love this color. I have issues with Borghese formula it doesn't apply well to me personally, but I can always make it work. This color is worth the extra effort. I love a glittery blue, especially one that has different colored glitters inside it. You know China Glaze Flying Dragon the purple with the red and blue glitters? I want more polishes like that... a base color with different color glitters in it!

Happy Friday

P.S. I'm behind a few days on my comment replies. I'll catch up today! Sorry, I've been so bad at replying to comments. I hope you can forgive me. :)


  1. I agree, a pretty base color with crazy different colored glitter, so pretty!

  2. Beautiful! I'm a sucker for these types of colors! Thanks for swatching & sharing Steph! Also thanks for sharing about my giveaway in your side bar. :O)

  3. This is soo pretty. I only own one Borghese, Stellare Note and the formula on that was amazing. But that is the nly color I have found of theirs that was unique. I've never seen anything like this in stores.

  4. I'm glad it has a good home with you. I don't care for their formula and application at all. :P

  5. I got Vigneto Berry with this one on a B1G1F. Glad I didn't pay full price. I had no idea they were matte and the formula IS a huge PITA. Pretty with a good top coat but I think they'll be my first and last Borghese.

    PS. Don't worry about comments at this time of year. We're all just finally heaving a sigh of relief and catching our breath.

  6. This is really gorgeous! I love the base colour.
