Fuso: #56

By Thepolishwell @thepolishwell
Good morning!
Today I have with me a polish that I spotted at the stores while I was doing some Christmas shopping a few days ago.
Fuso: #56
Just have a look at the polish in the bottle! When I saw it in the store, I nearly shrieked! It looked like a possible dupe for Rescue Beauty Lounge's Black Russian! The best part? It costs only SGD 2.90. I very nearly missed this bottle because looked like an ordinary black creme. I was so glad I picked it up for a closer look!
Unfortunately, it is not a Black Russian dupe :(
But it's still very pretty...
Fuso: #56
It is a blood-red jelly with bright red (and some pink) micro-glitter. It is definitely red and took me four coats to get this almost-black look. The micro-glitter is really tiny but incredibly bright - it glows when it catches the light! Super gorgeous!
Since it was rather sheer, I tried layering it over black and *bam*

Does it look more like Black Russian now? I can't judge from the Black Russian swatches online but it seems to be similar! :D
I really love it over black. It is even more gorgeous! The red glowy glitter really stands out against the black background especially under the light.
Here's a brief comparison:

Fuso: #56

index and ring: fuso #56 over black
middle and pinky: fuso #56 (4 coats)

I am not familiar with this polish brand but I don't have much complaints about the formula. It was rather smooth and easy to apply. The color also builds up nicely and evenly. Although it's a jelly, it doesn't dry smooth and shiny so a top coat is a must. Needless to say, it didn't last me very long - there was some tipwear on the second day but no chips.
My major gripe? It really stinks - literally! It must be the worst smelling polish I have in my stash. I found myself holding my breath while painting my nails! I'm not too sure what's inside the bottle but this is what they wrote on the bottle: Nitrocellulose, Butyl Acetate, Toulene, Ethyl Acetate, Colour. Nothing too poisonous I hope!
In any case, I'm glad I picked this up from the shelves that day. I am kind of kicking myself for not getting these other two beauties too:

Don't they look gorgeous in the bottle?! I shall look out for them the next time I drop by the store again. *pinky promise*
What do you think of this color? Is the layering close to Black Russian?
