Borghese Mini's Swatches Serena Pt 2 of 2

Here is the second set of borghese minis that I picked up at Rite Aid for $9.99. This set is called Serena. The colors do not have individual names. So, I will make some up!

*Sorry about the less that great pictures. The sun was playing peek-a-boo. *
This is a super pretty deep purple shimmer. I love purple and I LOVE this color. I will name this color Grimace after the purple Mcdonalds monster...
This is a multi-colored glitter in a clear base. Ummm.... Thanks? I feel like singing the Sesame Street song about one of these things not being like the others! :) It's a pretty glitter but it is just not doing anything for me. I will call this color.... I think I will leave it nameless! :)
This color is a LOT like OPI's Holiday Glow. The base color is similar. This one has more pronounced glitter and there are little red glitter unlike OPI. I think it's pretty but I have a personal issue with sparkles mixed with brown. It's tough to pull off! I'll name this color Sparkle Poo Log.

This is a VERY pretty duochrome! It is a lot like OPI Glacier Bay Blues. Except, this one doesn't have the sheer application. It flashes green, purple and has a deep smokey blue base. My pictures do not show how pretty this color is! I will be calling this color Hot Stuff!

Ummm...Sparkle Poo Log is now my favorite because of your wonderful, yet Christmas-y, name. lol.

Angela: The duochrome is awesome. :) I wish it came full size!

JacieO: I might take better pics. These are not doing hot stuff justice! :)

gildedangel: Grimace is so pretty!

Cacauate: :) Poo is the best word ever!

Found Hot Stuff and Grimace, along with 4 other new colors at Rite Aid tonight. FULL size. They had names and I've forgotten them as I didn't purchase. Maybe next week...$8 for drug store polish is steep to me. Is the formula all that???
They have a gorgeous royal deep purple and a deep deep dark blurple in the collection along with 2 lighter colors in the peach/pink family

I am so glad the duochrome is full size now. I think it's called stellare notte?? I would say they are very good quality. I would pay $8 for a full size borghese. Especially the duochrome. :)

You should try Poo over a black nail polish: ITS AMAZING!!!!
(It looks brown but it's not, the base is a sheer black with small red shimmers)
I so wish this would have come full size too!!!

I'll keep wishing! At least Stellare Notte DID make it.
