Normally I think $8 is expensive for a bottle of polish, so there has to be something else about it that makes me want to buy it. In the case of this Borghese polish, since I didn't have a coupon on me, and there was no special offer going on, what sucked me in was the color. It's a pearly cool medium pink, leaning toward cool, like an orchid pink. Great color for spring!
The brush is fat and lush. If you have narrow nail beds, you might be able to cover a nail with one stroke.
The heart-shaped bottle addresses a pet peeve of mine, which is that the brush can't reach most of the product at the bottom of many bottle shapes. Most of the polish in the Borghese bottle is contained at the top where you can get at it.
The color is incredible--it looks like a clear-coat finish even without a top coat! The pearlescence is the finest milled I've ever seen in a polish.
Borghese used to be an old-lady department store brand, but now the nail items are readily available at Rite Aid, Ulta, and I think Walgreens.
Cons: This color is quite sheer--I needed three coats to achieve the look I wanted. (Perhaps creme colors only need two coats.)
Wear isn't spectacular; any polish chips on me after two days, and this was no exception. I use Seche Vite base and top coat.
And as mentioned, $8 is a lot for a bottle of polish. However, you might be able to get a BOGOF or BOGO1/2 at Ulta or Walgreens.
Based on my delight with Giardino Heather, I would like to go back and try a Borghese creme color.
