Revlon - "Facets of Fuchsia"

Happy Sunday, everyone! Hope you've been enjoying your first Fall weekend of the year! Here in St. Louis, the weather has been absolutely gorgeous! As my mom always says, "If the weather were like this all year-round, we wouldn't be able to afford to live here!" Fall is definitely my favorite season of the year. I just hope we get a full Fall this year, and we don't get ice and snow too early!


Today, I wanted to share with you my mani of the day: Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia. I recently purchased this at Target for around $4. Except for wearing Revlon's Perplex, I don't have a lot of experience with their polishes. But let me tell ya, so far, so good! Talk about an all-around bargain! I just was amazed at their quality, and am quite impressed with their color selections! And you can't beat their price and availability!


Facets of Fuchsia is supposed to be a dupe of Deborah Lippman's Bad Romance. Now, I can't claim this to be true, since I don't own Bad Romance. Based on the swatch pictures I've seen online though, I think it's safe to say they're close to identical. If you like BR but don't want to fork out the $18 for a bottle, go get yourself a bottle of FoF - you won't be disappointed! But go quick - this is a Limited Edition color from Revlon and won't be around long!


I layered FoF over 2 coats of OPI Black Onyx. I didn't want any VNL and I was afraid it was going to be sheer, so I figured I'd be safe and just layer it over black. 


I do recommend using either Poshe or Gelous Top Coat (I used both for this mani!). They will smooth out your nail and give you a high-gloss shine! 


Application:
Deborah Lippman 2 Second Nail Primer
1 coat OPI Nail Envy, Original Formula
2 coats of OPI Black Onyx
1 coat of Revlon Facets of Fuchsia
1 coat of Gelous Nail Gel Coat
1 coat of Poshe Super-Fast Drying Top Coat
CND SolarSpeed Spray



Thanks for stopping by! 

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

  4. Hi Katie ! I bought this color today (and the blue glitter too) and I'm pretty sure I won't have to buy Bad Romance now since they're so similar. Yeah ! Also, I'll follow your advice and I'll put black polish under Facets of Fuchsia so it will take less coat. Anyway, great post as always, have a nice day !

  5. I'm so excited that you ladies like this and bought a bottle for yourselves! As you can probably tell by my posts, I'm not a big fan of glitters (*GASP*!!!!!), but this one is just different. I think it's a must-have for any polish collector! Plus, for the price, even if you only wear it once (I don't know why you'd only wear it once, but let's just say...), you've definitely gotten your money's worth. I think I picked this up for less than $4, so it's a steal! No need to get Bad Romance when there's a PERFECT dupe here! Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment! :-)
