Friday Favorite with a Flair! July 6, 2012

Revlon Nail Polish
Welcome to Friday Favorites with a Flair.  This week's favorite is Revlon Facets of Fuchsia.  I bought this after searching for a dupe of Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance.  Don't get me wrong, I LOVE having certain high end polishes; as a collector, I feel like I am allowed a few splurges.  But when there is a dupe that is pretty much dead on, I'll go for the dupe.  That's my cheapness rearing its ugly head:)
I have only tried this a few times because I couldn't find a good base color...until now!  I was going through my collection looking for a dark purple - but it had to be the same type of purple - redish/fuchsia.  I have lots of purples, but one stood out as a perfect base - Zoya Yasmeen (below)

Zoya Nail Polish
Yasmeen is such a pretty purple.  Here is Zoya's description "Dark blue-toned purple base with very strong red-toned medium purple shimmer and hints of gold duochrome. The ultimate complex purple for maximum drama"  I love Yasmeen so I guess you could say my Friday Favorite is both Yasmeen and Facets of Fuchsia!

Zoya and Revlon Nail Polish
Revlon Facets of Fuchsia was a limited edition polish, but Revlon now has it in its permanent line and it goes by the name of Scandalous.
Have a great weekend everyone!

  1. Hi. Thanks for sharing! I love this look. Do I need the zoya base? Why did you use it? Or can I just buy & use the revlon on its own? Thanks in advance.

    1. You could do the Revlon on its own, but I feel like the contrast with the shimmer is better with a darker base. If you just use the Revlon on its own, the base is a kindof dark grey and not as opaque. A black or any dark purple would work for a base. Good luck!

    3. Yes, it's the same polish. It originally came out as limited edition with the name Facets of Fuchsia and then they re-released it with the name Scandalous. They have done that with a few of their polishes....but yep, same color:)

    1. Actually, this is the same as Scandalous. It came out before and then they discontinued it and then brought it back with the Scandalous name. So it's the same:)
