What I wore in HK #3 - Facets of Fuchsia

Hi ladies :) While in Hong Kong, I was lucky enough to spy Revlon Facets of Fuchsia while bin diving in Sasa. Since it's a cheap dupe to Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance, I bought it to try. I found the polish to be thin and gloopy at the same time and applied three thin coats of the polish in the photos below. I had to wait awhile in between coats or the polish would drag and lump at the tips of my nail.

Even though I was super lemming Bad Romance when it was first released, I don't love Facets of Fuchsia as much. Since it's quite similar to China Glaze Mummy may I (minus the hex glitter pieces) I decided I didn't need both. I placed it on my blog sale page so someone who loved it more could welcome it into her home instead :)

What do you think of the polish though?

Thanks for dropping by.


  1. How strange! I picked up this same polish at a local store, but mine is called "Scandalous" instead of "Facets of Fuchsia" and it applies perfectly fine...

    my review of it here

    Maybe they changed the formula? I love mine, it works great on its own or layered over black/dark purple. 

  2. Gosh, I think it's gorgeous! Gloopy is often a problem with suspension bases I've found :( Hopefully in the next two weeks or so I'm going to have a play with some suspension base and work out whether there's an easy solution...

  3. I think they just re-released it under a different name. Nail polish companies seem to like doing that for some reason :(

  4. Ohhh, looking forward to a post about suspension bases soon! :D

  5. Hello fellow-Australian :) This colour is really pretty. I'm a bit biased though because I love black and purple so this is a great combo. Great find!! 

  6. Ohh, I like purple and black too, which is why the DL was such a huge lemming for me once upon a time. Too bad it's not so huge now :P
