Are you having a good week so far? It has been so hot here lately and to make matters worse I am feeling a little under the weather. Worst time ever to have fever.
I have had Revlon – Facets of Fuchsia for a while now. I picked it up in a Clicks sale and only because it immediately grabbed my eye. I immediately told acidicice about it and she managed to find something in her sale bin that was quite similar. She has Revlon – Scandalous. You can have a look at her post here and you will be able to tell that it isn’t exactly the same although it looks very similar in the bottle. I am indeed happy that I have Facets of Fuchsia though.
Revlon – Facets of Fuchsia
This is 3 thin coats with no topcoat. It is blackened jelly base with micro and larger hex glitter in purple – more so than fuchsia. It does dry a little uneven (which you can see here) but with a topcoat it really shines. How gorgeous is that? Gosh I don’t know why it has taken so long to use this. Here is what it looks like in the bottle.
I decided to pair it with some studs.
I used two coats of Sinful Colors – Black on black on my pinky and index. I have 3 coats of Revlon – Facets of Fuchsia with topcoat on my ring, middle and thumb. I then used some of my round neon studs from BornPrettyStore in a row over the black. I originally started with just one stud near the cuticle but after chatting to acidicice I decided to make the row. I wish I had decided that from the beginning as I then would’ve started the row closer to my cuticles. I also ended up putting topcoat over the studs and next time I definitely won’t. I think it looks quite nice without the topcoat. (Please excuse the overlapping stud on the tip of my pinky. I didn’t notice it had moved until later and at that point it wasn’t moving for love or money)
Thanks for reading!
