Welcome! First up...Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

Hello everyone!

After thinking about it for several months, I’ve finally started my own blog – about nail polish! My goal is to share my love for nail polish with anyone who stumbles upon this little blog. In my opinion, the nail polish world thrives on creativity and inspiration...so why not add my two cents? I will do my best to post accurate swatches and critically review the formula, finish, durability, etc. Thanks for stopping by!

My first review is a nail polish I’ve been meaning to get my hands on for a while. It took me so long that Revlon changed the name of the polish while I pondered! Presenting – Revlon Facets of Fuchsia (original name) aka Scandalous (new name). Many of you may know this as a dupe for Deborah Lippmann’s Bad Romance.

It is a tinted black base with hexagonal fuchsia glitter suspended in it. Since glitter bases don’t tend to be heavily pigmented, I layered it over Wet ‘n’ Wild Black Crème. Here is the swatch:

I used 2 – 3 coats of Scandalous on 1 coat of Black Crème, finished with a coat of Seche Vite. The glitter wasn’t as fussy as expected and I didn’t need to individually pick up any pieces from the brush to spread them. The staying power was amazing – 4 days later, and yet no tip wear. I liked it most outdoors, when the glitter catches the sunlight. Glad I finally bought it!

If you have any comments/want to say hi, I’d love to hear from you below!

  3. I'm not sure why but this site is loading extremely slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a problem on my end? I'll check back later on and see if the problem still exists.
