Borghese Mediterraneo Sea

I wanted to revisit and oldie, but a goodie today. The downside to this is this isn't something you can find easily anymore. That being said I've seen it listed on ebay and Amazon for reasonable prices. I cannot attest to the reliability of the sellers, but I wanted to throw it out there!

I re-discovered this one thanks to my friend Alyssa over at Pretty Little Bottles. There are times when I can't decide what to paint my nails, so I'll text her and tell her to pick a number 1-19. I have 18 Helmer drawers, and one extra plastic container for odds and ends polishes (this holds polishes I only have 1-2 from a brand). The number she picks I'll pick a polish from that drawer. This time she picked #19, which was my odds and ends drawer of polishes, so I picked Borghese Mediterraneo Sea. I haven't worn this polish since it came out in 2010.

Meditteraneo Sea

Meditteraneo Sea is a medium blue base with multi colored small hex glitter throughout.

How could I have forgotten this beauty?!? This is a stunning polish. I don't know how to describe it. It kind of looks like sea glass with glitter, stained glass, or tiles you see in a Grecian or Roman bath? Whatever it looks like it's beautiful. This does dry matte, but I think it is so much prettier with top coat. A top coat allows the glitter and the base to really shine and sparkle!

Happy Tuesday!

    Such a pretty color!

  2. this is gorgeous! I've passed it up so many times but now I'm regretting that.

  3. This is so beautiful! I always admire glitter polishes, but just do not love the removal process. I generally shy away from purchasing glitter polishes for this reason. I do have some glitter polishes, but wear them very infrequently. This one is really very pretty.

  4. This is really pretty! It's very unique too.

  5. That's beautiful! And I love the way you described it!

  6. beautiful! i've never seen this one

  7. Oh wow, this is indeed so beautiful!
