|Excuse my cold-looking fingers, it is freezing tonight!|
I had seen Revlon Facets of Fuchsia on a few blogs and thought it looked quite unusual and a little like some of the Deborah Lipmann polishes with their chunky glitter, but less than half the price, and therefore I had to have it! It was also on offer in Boots for £2 off the normal price at only £4.49 so it made it an even better deal.
In the bottle, the polish looks like it will be super sparkly and when on the nail, it doesn’t disappoint appearing as a dark, almost black-leaning purple with bright pink glitter in varying sizes. It took 3 coats to achieve this glossy, opaque finish and I added a topcoat to smooth it out a bit as it did feel rather uneven, as many glitters do. I don’t usually use a topcoat with polish as I like to change it every couple of days and I have usually moved onto another colour by the time it would have started to show wear. I have a low attention span when it comes to my nails! I haven’t tried any other Revlon polishes so I’m not sure if all are like this, but I did find the formula quite runny and difficult to manipulate on my nails without it going everywhere so I would suggest using several thin coats rather than a couple of thick ones.
I am pleased that I bought this and it is a relative bargain as I usually prefer OPI and Chanel polishes. I can’t comment on wear time as I only kept it on for a couple of days but there was no chipping or tip wear evident and it was certainly very different from anything else I own.
Price - £6.49
Where to buy – Boots although I can’t see it on their website at the moment.
