Dolce and Gabbana Nail Lacquer: Stromboli
Happy Wednesday ya'll! Today I have a really fabulous shade to show you. Brand spankin' new, from the long awaited Dolce & Gabbana makeup line, Strombolio.
Described as a gorgeous black base with gold semi chunky glitter, packaged in a sleek and slim bottle with silver cap. The removeable caps are just like Dior's and Chanel's. I really loved the glitter texture in this one. It's not too over powering - yet not to mild at the same rate. Perfecto!
Application: Coming from Dolce & Gabbana, I expect nothing but the best and Strombolio surely pulled through. The formula was very rich and pigmented with only two smooth applications. Although, if you wanted to add a third coat for that ultra bling, it's just as fabulous. You know, I'm all for that!
The Wear: Today is my second day of testing and so good, so far! I'll keep reporting back.
Negative: The only issue I see is the price. At $20 (.37 oz) each, you'll want to stock up one by one - that's what I'll be doing. Saks often has free shipping, so make sure you take advantage of those if your interested.
One more swatch below.
In this swatch, it's not completely sun - about half and half. I wanted to show you guys how much visible the glitter is compared to China Glaze's Wagon Trail. One thing I love about Stromboli, you can actually see the glitter.
You can find the Dolce & Gabbana makeup line at Saks Fifth Ave. The nail polishes retail for $20.00/ea. What do you guys think?

Hi Styrch, Ooh, that's a toughie! I think it all boils down to personal preference here. If you have the extra cash, sure go for it - If not, that's ok, China Glaze's Wagon Trail will certainly do :) Hi Bella, I totally agree! :)

At first I though it was dark brown. Love the glitter but not the price tag. It is a beautiful shade.

This color is striking, definitely a shade I would wear.
