Stellare Notte (and a funny video)

Hi ladies! This week is completely kicking my ass, but I've still made sure that I'll be able to have posts for you on my designated days. You know, because I love you and stuff.

Today's post is about one of the two Borghese polishes that I have. This one is called Stellare Notte, and according to Google translate, it's Italian for "Starry Night". I have never seen any kind of night sky that looks like this, but that's okay! It's still super pretty.

The picture above really shows the dark charcoal base, but it fails to show the gorgeous green/pink duochrome shimmer!

Fortunately, a wee bit of sunshine during my lunch break at school allowed my phone to take some pretty good pictures of it.

I know phone pictures really aren't the best, and I sincerely apologize for that. They're not that terrible though, are they? I've tried taking pictures of this polish in the sunshine with my real camera, but for some reason they just come out looking terrible.

I have no idea what's going on with the side of my middle fingernail, it looks like someone took a bite out of it. It probably happened in last night's caffeine-fueled paper writing frenzy.

The formula on this was pretty good, it was nice and opaque in two coats but I added a third because that's just how I roll. I only own one other Borghese and I've never worn it myself (I've used it on other people though) so I can't really comment on whether or not good formulas exist in the rest of their polishes, but this one was definitely easy to work with.

How do you guys feel about duochromes? Do you like this combination of green and pinkish?

Finally, I just have to share this with you guys. I was doing actual legitimate research for a school project and came across this little safety video from sometime in the 90s. If you're friends with me on Facebook or saw the tweet I made last night, you may have already seen it, but I think it's definitely worth another look.

Stay safe!


  1. As much I love Stellar Notte, I think the Stranger Danger video is slightly more awesome. The sunglasses guy from the "famous" trap is a such a creeper! I almost forgot about this video. Thanks for sharing. I'll be on the lookout for strangers now, even though they do have the best candy.

  2. LOL @Steph!!! I always fall for the 'hey, we can make you look pounds thinner! Come on over to my car and I'll show you this great product!' Baahaaa!

    I have Stellare Notte and some others from that collection. I like those inky colors!!

  3. A) I watched Stranger Danger and I laughed out loud in class..embarassing. Also I like this colour...and your phone took those pictures? My camera can't take pics that good Nicole, I'm jealous!

  4. LOL @ this video I forgot all about that video! Those creepers!

    LOL @ Steph and Kimberly!!

  5. I love the last one, threats. "or I'll kill your dog" I can only imagine what was going through that kids head! Lololol
