Engagement Ring & Facets of Fuschia!


Today I am ecstatic to announce that I am engaged!!!!!  My boyfriend proposed to me on Thursday and I am currently the happiest girl in the land.  Truly I could not ask for a more wonderful man with whom to spend the rest of my life.

And so my first pic of Revlon's Facets of Fuschia is a very special one, as it shows off my engagement ring ^_^

Niiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ^_^

OK, I'll try to put the soppiness aside and get down to polishy business.  Today I am showing you Revlon's Facets of Fuschia which cost £6.49 - expensive for me, but I've seen so many people blogging about it that I couldn't resist picking it up at Boots.

I love this polish so much!!  And I found a fantastic base colour to pair it with - 17's Midnight Sapphire, a very deep shimmer blue.  The pics show one coat of Facets of Fuschia over two of Midnight Sapphire.

It is difficult to fully show off the polish in a photograph; because of the dark base (and the glitter in Facets itself is set in a black-ish jelly) it's not an incredibly loud glitter look, but it is deep.  So beautiful.  I actually wore this mani a couple of days ago, took it off to try out a No7 polish I bought, then put it straight back on after a day.  I am in love!

Happy hugs,

A Newly-Engaged Lisa


  1. I love F of F as well! It's really cheap here, about $3.75, so it's odd that it's expensive over there. But I LOVE it as well! I put it over a black base, and it looked really pretty too. One of my new favorite polishes!

  2. Oh, and Congrats again! Love the ring!

  3. Thank you!! And oh wow, that is lucky! I wonder why we're paying such a massive difference :-/ xx

  4. I know, so weird about price differences. You are in the UK right? If you don't me asking, how much does Rimmel go for there? It's between $2.79-$4.60 ish here. I'm just curious because I know that's one we brand both have as well.

  5. Rimmel... I think their cheapest polishes are £2.99, going up to maybe £4.50-£4.99. If you consider the exchange rate I'm paying over the odds but not as bad as Revlon!

  6. That's weird with Rimmel because I thought it was based in the UK. So confused with how polish prices are decided. and yes, Revlon is horrible in the price difference. :(

  7. Yes I'm pretty sure it is, because the bottles say Rimmel London. I think the UK just gets a raw deal in general lol!!

    Also with Revlon I'd been dying to get Starry Pink but we don't seem to have it over here :-(

  8. Congrats on the engagement!! Beautiful ring!

    And the polish looks so pretty. I so need to get myself a bottle of this!

  9. Congratulations! Gorgeous ring and nails!

    I really want starry pink too :( I don't usually get Revlons because they're expensive but I got F o F and I'd get Starry Pink if we had it too!



Thank you so much for reading! I love hearing from fellow polish addicts so comments are most appreciated. Just to let you know that I am unwell some of the time but will try my best to reply xx
