I came across Borghese Stellare Notte one Thursday night at Chemist Warehouse, a discount pharmacy chain. A massively leaky lip gloss had coated all the polishes in the tub with a sickly sweet pink goo reminiscent of the goo in the Matrix human battery farm pods, but I grabbed two bottles of this anyway. Duo/multichrome addict, hello! As per usual with multichromes, I've taken way too many pictures:
Fitting, this polish is actually quite like the colour scheme inside the Matrix - in most lights it shows up as teal-tinted charcoal, with purple-tinted black playing around the edges, if you try you can also see a golden brown at extreme angles. It's a very sophisticated, understated, noir kind of multichrome, the kind of thing that a non-polish fiend (i.e. "civilian") wouldn't pick as a duochrome. It's the kind of colour you'd expect a sexy guitar or secret agent car to be.
The boyfriend approves of the un-obvious shimmer, but deemed it too camp for his own nails. One day I'll convince him to let me manicure him!
