A Scandalous Spot To Be Seen In

Happy Friday everybody! Are you glad it's the weekend? I am, I got post-vacation blahs.

Today I have the lovely Revlon Scandalous with some art to show you. Scandalous is a re-named Facets of Fuchsia and still completely fabulous. It has been said to be a dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Bad Romance but since I will probably never own a Deborah Lippmann I can't really say one way or the other. If you are interested however, go take a look at this wonderful comparison over at Fab Fatale. Scandalous is a gorgeous black/dark purple jelly base with some gorgeous glitter happening. On to the pics!

Look at mah bottle macro shot skills!

Now as usual, my pics are looking like crap to me, so I also offer you this pic from the always lovely Pointless Cafe.

All I know is I love this polish. All of my pics are with two easy coats. Of course you know I can never leave well enough alone so some nail art happened. I originally wanted to stamp on it but all the colors I tried didn't want to cooperate. Whatever, I showed them! Dotting tool to the rescue!

One with flash for good measure and maximum sparkle capacity.
Polishes used:

  • Seche Rebuild base coat / Seche Vite top coat
  • Revlon Scandalous
  • Sinful Colors Hazard
  • Essie Blanc
  • Pure Ice Don't You Wish

This whole thing overall is darker than I had imagined it would turn out, which is kind of stupid since look what I used for a base right? I still have vacation brain. Even though it's darker than I meant I still think it's cute and I love how sparkly it got. It was super hard to photograph though, I have sparkle and dark color issues. I think this weekend will be my build a light box weekend cause I feel bad making you guys look at some of these lol. Hope you all had a great week, it feels nice to be back ^_^


  1. Revlon Scandalous is so gorgeous, but I love what you did with the dots - they have a very retro feel to them LOL

    1. Thank you! I really need to keep this on until I build a light box because these pics sooo don't do all this sparkle justice. I wish you could all see what I see >.<

    1. Thank you! Scandalous is surprisingly hard to put anything over, it's just so pretty on it's own.

  4. Dude I loooove this color, have it (it even says Facets of Fuchsia) and never really worn it. I should fix that soon.

    I have the pre-vacation YAYS! We're in the planning stage so talking about stuff is exciting. Sorry, not rubbing it in on purpose :D

    1. Oooo you got the old school one! I've already used so much of my bottle lol.

      No apologies needed, I never get tired of hearing about NY! I'm in the initial shock stage of moving where I keep looking at everything and wondering whose feelings I might hurt if I just threw it out cause I don't wanna pack it :P It's not so much post-vacation blah as post-vacation ah crap now I have stuff to actually do laziness.

  5. such a great color! and those dots are cute! :D
