Here is part two in my series of reviews of F4 Polish, Mint Chocolate Chip! This is a lovely mint-green creme polish with brown micro-glitter, and it matches the name perfectly.
For the pictures I used three coats. The first coat was thin and streaky; with the second coat it was evened out, but I could still see a bit of my nail line so I added another. I think if I had done a thicker first coat I could have gotten away with two thick coats. When applying, the glitters tended to congregate towards the bottom of my nails, but the polish didn't dry too quickly so I was able to brush over the nail a few times to spread them out. I used two coats of Seche Vite; one on top of the polish was all I needed to make it glossy, but when I decided to add the rhinestones I had to seal them in with another coat.
This polish is very pigmented and bright, and my camera couldn't do it justice. It's much brighter in real life.

I must admit I was a tad bit disappointed when the glitters weren't reflective on the nail; you can see in the bottle picture that some of them catch the light, but that didn't translate onto the nail unless you count one single glitter on my index finger.
So far, I'm very happy with the polishes from F4. I only got mini bottles, but I think I'll have to buy some full-sized ones once they start "officially" shipping to Canada (which I'm told is being worked on).
You can buy F4 Polish at their Etsy shop ($8 USD per full-sized bottle), and get updates on their Facebook page.
