I bought this ages ago - perhaps last summer - and wore it once, and didn't wear it again, because I was really disappointed with it.
This is Revlon's Facets of Fuschia, touted on a lot of the internet as a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance, a black jelly with stacks of bright fuschia glitter in various sizes. I didn't buy the Lippmann because it was £16, and this Revlon was under a fiver.
This is a thin black jelly with fuschia glitter in small and large sizes. The first time I wore this, I wore it on its own and it took at least three layers to be anywhere near opaque. This time I layered it over a black base (my standard Rimmel Black Out) and then added two layers of Facets of Fuschia. Application was ok; the Revlon brush is very thin though, so it needed quite a lot of brush strokes per nail. The finish felt very rough too, so I needed three layers of Seche Vite before it felt smooth enough to not drive me up the wall.
I feel a bit underwhelmed by this. I love the concept, but it just doesn't blow me away the way I want it to. It looks amazing in the bottle, but I think it just looks nice on the nails. I wish it looked more purple or more glittery.
I'm also annoyed with my nail shape. I had been experimenting with a squarer nail shape over the last month, and I was taking ages to get used to it. Having corners felt really odd, and when I tapped things with my fingerips it felt really weird! I quite liked how it looked, but last night they needed shortening anyway, and I ended up cutting them really short (shorter than I wanted) and back to the round shape I was used to. Now I've done it, I hate how it looks. They look very childish to me now. So maybe I'll grow them back squarer. What do you reckon?
