Another toned-back glitter for me! Revlon Scandalous :)

I like relatively subdued glitters, such as China Glaze Some Like It Haute, and I've found another! Lise suggested Revlon Scandalous (Lippmann Bad Romance dupe) as a toned down glitter - it's magenta glitter in a black jelly base, which really gets rid of the super shine. To my eyes, it's as blingy as a flakie topcoat, i.e. not eyecatching enough for people to comment during a serious meeting. The black base really tones it down too. This is 2 coats over a coat of black. Of course, I couldn't leave it alone, so a few days later, I did some diagonal taping and painted ulta3 Twilight Fever, a Paradoxal dupe (purple shimmer in purple-brown creme) on half:

I really like Scandalous, much more than I expected to! One of my top 5 glitters so far, for sure.

That's odd. I think this is a repromote of Facets of Fuschia that they released a little while ago. That's the name that I have and it's the exact same color.

Yeah, I was going to say that this looks just like my Facets of Fuschia, and wondered whether they'd renamed it!

You made it look really good! I'm not a fan of it on my nails.

Yep this color, and a few others from the 2011 LE collection, have been renamed and cut into the core collection. A fun fact I wish I knew before paying $10 (including shipping) for my bottle of Facets of Fuchsia.

Im happy for the re-promote, as I didn't get my hands on FOF last time :)

I love love LOVE!!! This polish! I have had it for a while now, and at least once a month I use it! It's seriously one of my favorite polishes!

Absolutely gorgeous manicure... the combination of reflective purple glitter in a black base is a winner.
