Franken Friday Week 5-Facets of Fuchsia

Wow, that was a lot of Fs in the title.  Yep-it's another Franken Friday.  This time it's just a small tweak that was for the better.  Revlon Facets of Fuchsia was a favorite of mine as soon as I bought it last year.  A 3 coater due to its sheer base, my bottle had gone down significantly.  Last December, the formula became so thick and lumpy that the polish wouldn't even dry.  Instead of adding polish thinner, I filled the bottle with OPI Siberian Nights to make the base more opaque and lessen the amount of coats.  The finished result is a major improvement!!  Now it's a 2 coater, less lumpy, and the glitter is spread out and looks "suspended" in the base (which is now black and not sheer).  Facets of Fuchsia still dries matte and slightly lumpy, but it's not anything 2 coats of Seche Vite can't fix.


  1. OMG Cindy!! This is to dye for!! I am speechless! Wow. Great for Halloween!

  2. Thanks. Revlon re-released this color. I think it's called Scandilous, but I'm not positive on that name. I think all the Expressionists are now in their permanent line under new names.
