Revlon Facets of Fuchsia & Starry Pink Layering Combos
Hey dolls, I just realized that my giveaway is ending soon and I haven't shown you pictures of all of the colors. Today I'm wearing Facets of Fuchsia, a purple micro & hexagon glitter suspended in a black base. To avoid having to use a lot of layers, I first applied Aldo Hit the Pavement. This is a black polish filled with silver shimmer. I had no clue Also sold polish...I usually just go there for my shoe fix. I got Hit the Pavement during this haul a few months ago. I only applied 1 coat since I knew I would be layering it. The formula was good...not too thick nor runny. The brush was a little stiff, but not problematic. It looks pretty opaque in real life, but I do see a little balding on my pinkie in the picture.
Hit the Pavement is a nice black shimmer. I think it'll be awesome when I'm in the mood for black polish. I then added 1 coat of Facets of Fuchsia. The formula was great for a glitter. It wasn't thick or goopy. The glitter distributes relatively evenly, but you do have to manipulate the hexagon glitter a little bit if you want it all over the nail. If you are doing multiple coats, I would recommend waiting a few minutes for each to dry to avoid lifting the glitter. Unfortunately it has been dreary here for the last 2 days, so I don't have sun pictures. These flash shot shows the shade of the glitter best.
I love how much depth the glitter has to it. I think this polish would be a great addition to any stash. Compared to Starry Pink, I'm in love with this Facets of Fuchsia! Speaking of Starry Pink, I decided to layer it over a few colors based on some recommendations. Since it is Pink Wednesday, I'll include those pictures as well. The colors I chose to go under Starry Pink are Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On, Essie French Affair, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Hot Magenta, and Zoya Mimi.
I like it best over the second one, Essie French Affair. It just has more depth. The last 2 don't do anything for me since Starry Pink's base is so milky. I hope you all are having a good hump day...I'm excited for the season premier of Modern Family tonight and a new episode of Top Model!
