I actually wore this nail polish almost a week ago, but decided to save the photos for a later post. Looks like “later” is now!
Facets of Fuchsia is one of three (fairly) new glitter polishes from Revlon. I was immediately drawn to this varnish because it looks identical to Deborah Lippmann’s Bad Romance. Until now, there was nothing that could measure up to the unique edginess of Bad Romance. Comparatively, they are pretty much the exact same lacquer. The only differences being: 1) Facets of Fuchsia has slightly less glitter 2) Bad Romance costs 3x more at $18.
I was also impressed with the black base. I guess I expected Facets of Fuchsia to be kind of gloopy and sheer because it’s a drugstore nail polish. WRONG! How could I ever think that? Afterall, there hasn’t been a Revlon polish I’ve owned and disliked. Plus, their varnishes are comparable - and sometimes superior - to higher end brands. Shame on you, Ingrid. You should know better! *slaps hand*
*Ahem* Anyways, even though I ended up using three coats, I absolutely adore this polish. The combination of small and large hexagonal glitter against the dark base is lovely. It’s one of those colors that makes me happy when I look down at my nails. So if you’ve had your eye on Bad Romance, don’t bother. Go with Facets of Fuchsia instead and save yourself a few bucks!
