Review: Borghese Rapido Fast Dry Nail Lacquer, Capriccio Blue

Drugstore
Price Range: $8
Rating: ☺☺☺

Pros
+Light-medium, toned down creamy blue
+Dries quickly
+Pigmented
+Tolulene, DBP and Formaldehyde free
+Not tested on animals

Cons
-Formula separates easily, which is a little questionable, but a few brisk shakes mixes it back up again
-Though it has a thick formula, it goes on kind of streaky and uneven for the first two layers; it takes three coats for a smoother surface
-$8 for a finicky formula? No bueno.

Notes
.This is a pretty close dupe of Essie's Lapiz of Luxury--if you have a good eye for color however, you'll notice it's slightly paler and not as vibrant; more subtle (which I personally like).
.The applicator has a wide and thicker brush, so it picks up a lot of product--if you don't tap off the excess, it'll apply on thicker layers, which can attribute to uneven areas. Once you master the brush however, you can cover your whole nail in about 3 strokes.
