Borghese has a new line of nail lacquers out called Rapido Fast Dry Nail Lacquer.
These are quick-drying polishes that currently come in 12 different colors and finishes.
I haven’t reviewed a ton of Borghese on here because I don’t often come across colors that I feel the need to own. I did want to check these out though because I love anything that dries fast and I wanted to see how the formula was.
Overall yes, they do dry quickly but there is a caveat, at least with two of the three colors I tried. They were very sheer so you need three coats, which makes them take longer to dry. If they were one coaters, they would dry uber-quickly, but since you need three, it doesn’t make that much of a difference for dry time if you use a quick-dry top coat with them, unfortunately.
Mochaccino is a medium brown/purple taupe with light pink and blue shimmer running throughout. This is a good color once it’s built up but it was very thin and almost watery for the first couple coats. I do like the color, but don’t think it’s completely original anymore since there are sooooooo many taupes out there now.
Marino is a medium bright blue creme. I had expected this one to be super opaque by looking at it and was surprised when it was extremely sheer going on. However it did build up nicely after three coats. Nothing too original again though.
Chroma is a silver foil and the most opaque of the bunch. Very nice foil effect and this one was only two coats. Since foils and metallics tend to dry quicker than most polish anyway, and it took less coats, I can say this one did feel like a quick-dry polish.
Hard to judge a whole collection from just three, I would like to check out the green and purple ones to see how those colors and finishes work. I don’t think any of these colors here are very unique, but all still nice.
Pricing: $7-9 depending on what deals are going on
