As close to Bad Romance I can get (Devil Woman)

Bad Romance (Deborah Lippman) or Facets of Fuchsia (Rimmel) has been on my wishlist since the first swatches I saw of them. I even got FoF on the shopping cart once on an e-tailer, but later got a refund for it was sold out. When my girls pointed me this glitter polish in the store I thought why not... The particles are not just purple but it mesmerized me. And it cost only 1 euro. This nail varnish is called Devil Woman and the brand is Mode4u.

No, you don't get the shade in the picture by just laying a coat or even five on your nail. But it worked well enough on layering. I did my share of trying on differend bases. It's very gooey so the base needed to have some action itself. On black creme it looked as cheap as it was and on purple base it left terrible strokes no matter how I tried to even it out with a top coat.

But then I found a winner combination. Here the base is Rich in Heart by Sinful Colors. Another sale find from some time ago (a year? two years?).

Devil Woman is very thick but on the bright side the glitter distributes well with the brush stroke. You don't need to pick the particles from the bottle to get them on the nail!

Here is two coats of RiH completely dry. Then one layer of clear top coat followed by a side swipe of Devil Woman while still being wet.

Indoors the base is almost black and it does lean more to purple than it shows here. On the pics the glitter looks more silver than in reality.

Cheap but still rich in heart?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Wow,lovely nails.

  2. Thank you! Nice to see you two here :)

  3. Ihana! Mistä ostit tuon Mode4u lakan?

    1. Tämä oli "Erkin Halli" nimisestä halpakaupasta.

      Merkkiä löytynee sellaisista kaupoista, jotka ei juuri kosmetiikkavalikoimansa laajuuteen (ja laatuun) satsaa... Tuokin on enemmän sekatavarakauppa kuin marketti :)


Great to hear from you! Thanks for taking time to comment :)
