Going Green with Borghese Pistacchio

Borghese Pistacchio Nail Polish

Borghese Tutti Fruiti Collection

Happy Friday Divas! I'm so ready for the weekend, aren't you? Today I have a special green to share from The Tutti Gelati Summer Collection by Borghese.    

Pistacchio is light, blue based emerald green with shimmer. The formula is light and applies rather sheer. For full coverage, you'll need four coats to cover your nail line completely.

When first looking at Pistacchio, some might mistaken it for Essie's Dominica Green because of its sheerness, and radiating green glow - but it's actually more blue compared side by side.

What do you think of Pistacchio? How do you feel about Borghese polishes? Have a great weekend!

Dear Steph, I've seen so much beautiful swatches of borghese polishes around the net. Can you tell me a shop where I can buy these, which also ships internationally?

I got this yesterday along with 3 others from the collection: Menta, Maraschino, and Tutti Gelati. They're really pretty!

I really like this color, although it's really no where near what color I pictured for the name.

The color looks pretty, but 4 coats is too many imo.

When I first heard that Borghese had a color called Pistachio I was so excited. To tell the truth though, I'm disappointed in the color! I was hoping is was a creme. Your swatch is lovely though.

It's very rare that I see a green nail polish that I don't love. This one's no exception, so I'll be hunting it down. Gorgeous!

I like the color a lot. Unfortunately I don't own this beauty.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
