NOTD: Facets of Fuchsia

Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia had been one of my last year's most wanted nail polishes, which makes it a bit strange that I haven't published the swatch here earlier. You see, I got it almost a year ago. Fail.

To me, this nail polish looks a lot better in the bottle than it does on nails. It dries really strange on my nails and doesn't retain the glossy finish. Also, the glittery chunks aren't very visible unless you're in direct sunlight. I'm not saying that this is not a pretty nail polish, but I guess I expected more from it. Especially because of all the ravings. I'll try wearing it with my Seche Vite top coat next time. Maybe it will do the magic. :)

    1. Ja, sem vidla na tvojih slikcah, da ti ful lepo pride. Na meni pa mal čudno zgleda, haha. Mislim, da sem dala 3 plasti. Sej drugače je še vedno lep, ampak na meni skor črno zgleda, če ni na sončni svetlobi pa tak hrapav odsev ima. If that makes sense... :D

  4. I wear this with Seche Vite on top and I love the finish, I too found it was a bit flat without it. Nightmare to remove though haha xx

  5. Lak je lep, ampak meni ni bil nikoli jasna ta "norišnica" okoli tega laka, da so ga vse punce morale imeti. Jaz ga nimam in ga verjetno tudi nikoli ne bom kupila (leprav nikoli ne reci nikoli). Se mi pa zdi, da na tvojih nohtih izgleda isto kot v steklenički in ti tudi lepo paše. :)

    1. Mya, to je bolj kot ne zaradi flasha. Na res močni svetlobi zgleda ok, drugače pa bolj 'blah'.

  7. I felt the same way when I first used this. Have you tried doing a black base first? I find it looks a lot better with an all black base then you put a coat or two one. I find you see the glitter better. It's such a shame when you wanted something so bad and then it doesn't live up to your expectations of it.

  13. I always wear it on top of another polish so the glitter comes out more

  15. This colour looks so vibrant in the bottle. A pretty sparkly purple. Its a shame it doesn't translate to your nails - maybe a top coat would make it a little more vibrant

  16. This still looks really pretty on the nails! X
