Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Friday YAY! I'm sorry about my totally erratic posting this week... I feel like I'm so low on time and I'm kind of getting thrown into panic mode. It's only the second week of school but I realized I already have three papers and a journalism story coming up, plus a couple of midterms... it's crazy how fast life piles up sometimes, isn't it? Ah well! What are your plans for the weekend? :)

I also just wanted to say thank you for the reactions to my last post. I waffled on posting it for five days and decided to just do it so I'd stop agonizing over it. The comments, Facebook messages, emails, tweets, DMs, they've all meant so much to me and I really loved hearing how other people were feeling too. I hope in the future I can keep this kind of dialogue up with you guys - I try to be as open as I can be and I hope that you guys feel comfortable being the same way!

OKAY END MUSHY. So today's polish is Revlon Facets of Fuchsia. I got this beauty from my love Jen and it was the first of the Revlon glitters that my roommate said I should try lol. I was really lazy when I wore it and didn't want to use three or four coats, so I layered it over black. I used my trusty one-coater Wet n' Wild black, then two coats of FoF. I initially only used one but I liked the slightly "submerged" look that two gave.

Fun fact: notice that I don't often show polishes layered over black unless the layering is pretty opaque? I always like how dark colours look on me in person but on camera they do weird things to my skin colour. I'm sure you noticed. Just look at the pretty polish, right?

So that's it for today. I'm trying to get back into the swing of posting but I don't want to force myself. I know it might sound difficult to believe but posting every day like I have been for... god, five months now? never felt like a chore to me. I was always excited to sit down and write. Even now, I'm full of ideas and talking to you guys in my head... I just don't have enough time between work and school and homework. If I build my lightbox that will change, promise! Right now blogging is feeling a bit like a chore, at least on an every day schedule. I feel better now that I said my piece on the Nails editorial but it still really brought me down. I guess I've lost my mojo a bit. I'll finally have a full day off next week so maybe I'll try stamping or something to get it back!

Anyway, what do you guys think? Have you scooped any of these glitters up? Thank you once again to Jenalen for sending this to me <3333

 Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!

  2. I am one of the few who just don't get the whole glitter love thing! I get excited over a beautiful dark creme or a hint of shimmer. I also am not a fan of the crackle polish-just looks messy to me! I'm guess I'm weird like that~your nails are always so pretty! Am jealous!
