Before I even saw this product, I knew that I would be obsessed with it simply from the name – I’m talking about the Revlon Facets of Fuchsia Nail Polish. Fuchsia is just me, and if it sparkles then all the better! I was super happy when I actually saw the nail polish in question – it looked as gorgeous as I’d hoped!
It is essentially a black nail polish with specks of fuchsia glitter running all the way through it. It might be because I’ve been using super glittery polishes lately, but I wasn’t overwhelmed with the amount of glitter it contained; however, I thought it might be nice to have a more subtle shimmer for a change.
After one coat of the polish I begun to panic – had this purchase been a complete waste of money? The colour looked sheer and watery and there wasn’t a speck of fuchsia in sight! Thankfully, matters improved after the second coat. I apologise for the quality of the photo, but this is how the nails turned out:
So, what is my verdict? Well…I like it, but I don’t love it. Perhaps I’ve been spoiled with all of the OPI polishes I’ve been trying lately, but this product was underwhelming. I think I’d become a little too excited at the prospect of quick-and-easy pink and black nails, but in reality there is much more black than pink. Granted, it does make for a more subtle shimmery alternative to my crazy glitter polishes, but I wouldn’t repurchase.
The polish cost £6.49 from Superdrug – a mid-range price in my opinion. I will absolutely use this polish again (mostly to get my money’s worth!) but I think the price is a little steep considering it isn’t wonderful.
Have you used this polish? What did you think?
