OPI Nail Lacquer - Flashbulb Fuchsia 0.5 oz - #NLB31
Flashy pink-purple that loves paparazzi.
Dark hot pink color, has blue and purple in it, and some shimmer. Very pretty and flattering. Compared to Pompeii Purple, Flashbulb Fuchsia is darker (more purple in the color), more "shimmery", and has less of the blue-purple flash. Pompeii is more of a hot pink (like Koala Berry) with the strong blue flash.Here is my warning, and the reason to add the review: It chips so easily (within hours) and the removal is tedious! I have to rub and rub. So annoying. Color gets 5 lippies. But the chipping and removal process knocks the rating down to 3 lippies. I've worn it several times, and have the same results each time. Now, I use it for toes only, and Altar Ego on hands.
Super-bright and super-shimmery, Flashbulb Fuchsia is one of my all-time favorite OPI's. This is a vivid, eye-catching purplish-pink that looks AMAZING on the nail. It's similar to Pompeii Purple, but slightly darker. Excellent formula. Opaque in two coats and no problems with application or wear. I love this one and I would buy it again and again. Recommended!
Love this color and formula! I can get away with a single coat. This polish isn't completely opaque, I don't know how to describe it, anyway I love it. I wish so bad this was a permanent color. I use it a lot during the summer.
OPI's Festive Fuchsia was a Trade Secret exclusive for the 2009 holiday season. In the bottle it looks to be a medium-dark raspberry with red undertones (along the lines of OPI's Meep-Meep-Meep or You Only Live Twice); however, it has microflecks of gold and fuchsia as well. Once applied to the nail, on my light complexion with slight yellow undertones, this polish turned to a warm Christmas-y redded fuchsia. While this was not the color I expected (other reviews and online blog pictures show it as a fuchsia or raspberry color), this was a very welcome surprise. My skin tends to pull more red if there are red undertones in any polish. The gold microfine glitter mixes with the other colors in this polish and gives it a microglittery, shimmery, glowy finish. Application was very smooth and even without any streaking; however, it did take four coats to complete opacity and bottle color. I was able to get a week of wear out of this polish with Seche Vite over the top. I would definitely buy this one again.
I have very fair skin, but I love bright pink colors. It can be really tricky to find colors that flatter my skin tone. My mom actually bought this for herself, and she let me try it. I'm in love with this nail polish.It is a bright fuchsia that is slightly shimmery. It applies very easily (which is really saying something because I'm terrible at doing nails). You only need one coat to achieve the perfect opaque color. It lasts a long time, it doesn't chip easily, and it's not that expensive. I definitely think it's better for people under the age of 30. It's fun and summery and bright. I will definitely buy this again.
