Borghese Almondine

TGIF! Today I have an awesome neutral polish to show you guys, this was sent to me by my love Kirsten from Glitta Gloves. She sent me pretty much the most awesome package ever a little bit ago and this was one of the pretty polishes she included. I've had my eye on Almondine for a while, ever since Kirsten posted it and said it was her favorite nude.

I am SO glad Kirsten included this beauty for me, I went searching for it after she posted it and I guess Borghese is gone forever or something because all the Rite Aid stores near me cleared out all the stock and made their displays into other things :(

Almondine is a gorgeous beige nude with black shimmer/glitter/flecks (I don't really know what to call it haha) There is also a very subtle pink shimmer in here. It reminds me a bit of Cult Nails Cruisin Nude ...if Cruisin Nude had awesome black whatevers in it. The formula was nice, a little sheer at first but it built up so nicely! I used 3 coats for the photos below.

  2. I saw the same Glitta Gloves post and bought Almondine off Ebay! It just arrived yesterday and is so beautiful! The pink/purple flash does remind me of Cruisin' Nude, but this actually suits me whereas CN made my nails look really dirty!!! Gorgeous polish, not fond of the brush though!!

  10. I got mine on eBay for 6 bucks and free shipping. I LOVE it! I saw it on a blog somewhere - cannot remember where - and HAD to have it, now I am seeing it around a lot more :) I cannot wait to wear it! The black reminds me of vanilla bean creme brulee :)

  14. Loving this! Dang, and I don't even like nudes... that much :)
    I own Cruisin Nude and I have never worn it (poor thing's been sitting, I mean laying, in my collection for a year!) I might just whip it out and see if I like it now. It wasn't one I ordered, it replaced a polish that sold out before my order was processed, so she sent me the nude one instead - therefore, I internally threw a tantrum and ignored the nude polish. tsk tsk ;)

  15. Almondine is a long time lemming of mine... I like it because it reminds me of almond milk (if you ever tasted it, you'd know what I mean).  And I'm in the mood for nudes lately so it's probably the right time to buy it!!

  16. Love the color! What do you use as a top coat to make your nails so shiny? In fact, what does anyone use as a top coat? My nails are never shiny and smooth enough!

  19. Love this shade and the kind of 'stuff' that is in this nude. My little town has Rite Aide the only place for 20 miles at least to buy a bottle of polish. They just recently ax this line and brought in a few Nicole by OPI instead...which I hate - as I hate their bottles and won't buy them.

    This is a nice nude! Borghese has been 86ed but you can find it at Ocean State Job Lot in Massachusetts and Rhode Island for $2.00 each. I recently picked up Mente, Maraschino, Marino, and a couple of the Presto top coat (which is my favorite!) for only 10 bucks :)
