It is a multi sized fuchsia purple glitter in a black jelly base. It has small particles and large hexagrams of glitter and is said to be a pretty good dupe for Deborah Lippmans Bad Romance but I don't have that for comparison so I can't really comment on how close it is, but I do know that it is a stunner! It went on a lot easier than I expected, because I thought the large hex glitter would need to be manipulated into position, but it went on with no trouble and was opaque in 2 coats, over Funky Fingers Melted Popsicle a a base. I wasn't actually intending to use this as a base, it was just the timing. I had put on 1 coat when the postie arrived with this polish and of course I had to try it immediately so that's why its the base! It worked out well though. The dry time was OK, and although it was a little rough textured it wasn't as bad as some glitters. I went and slapped on a good dollop of top coat anyway for good measure. Here are the pics, isn't it yummy!

Then I decided after wearing this lovely for a day, I wanted to try and matte-ify it, so I went ahead and added a coat of e.l.f. Matte Finisher. I have to say I didn't used to be a fan of mattes at all, but I think I may have been missing out because they are growing on me, especially over textured polishes like glitters where they can give a really interesting effect. What do you think of it, do you like it and do you prefer it matte or shiny? I like both, I think I may have to get the blue from this collection and give that a try too now :) (Oh one more thing, please ignore the blue tinge to my pinky finger, I tried layering a blue glitter underneath on that finger!)
I don't have Bad Romance either, but it reminds me of WNW Night Prowler. Bigger glitter with the Revlon, but the black with the same purple glitter.
Love it matte! Not a glitter person myself, but matte glitters always look great.
Very pretty polish! I love the it both matte and shiny.
i still have mine on my toes i love it!
I'm waiting on all three of the new colors from a polish friend since I have no stores that carry them near me. That one is beautiful on you.
I went looking for this polish today. However, I had no luck. :(
I love the way you wear it. :)
Thank you for all the comments, it is lovely and I like it both matte and shiny too. It is available in Superdrug and Boots in the UK apparently, but I went to one branch of Boots yesterday looking for the blue one, and they didn't even do the Revlon range! Pah! Stupid small town, I will have to look in a bigger one I think! I neeeeeeeeeeed the blue one!
I might go on a hunt today for this polish! I love it!
It looks GREAT as a matte!
I have to look out for this one. I love purple!
Oh I just love this one and since we don't have it in Canada yet, I'm waiting for swap mail from a girl in the US. I didn't think of adding a matte top coat, I think it looks great that way.
Try holding them as long as possible. play bazaar
