I can't tell you how excited I was when yesterday I got a text from my dad (who was working at home) telling me that I had a package from F4 Polish! This is my first review and I was anxiously awaiting the polishes they had sent me to reivew. Let me tell you, they certainly do not disappoint!
F4 Polish is still a relatively new indie brand, and I haven't seen much of their polishes around yet. I really hope their popularity grows, because these polishes are beautiful and the lovely sister who make them most definitely deserve it!
In the package there were four mini bottles packaged in bubble wrap; the bottles themselves are adorable with the pink sparkly labels and the jewel on the O. There was the two polishes I had requested, Chunky Cow and Mint Chocolate Chip, as well as two polishes they just added to their shop, Pink Salmon and Pink Penquin. Yes, Pink Penquin; I keep wanting to type Penguin.

It was a very hard choice which one to try first, but I finally decided on Pink Penquin, a mix of black and white matte micro-glitter with medium pink matte hex glitter in a clear base. Cue close-up bottle picture:
Beauty, isn't it? I chose to layer it over Orly Faint of Heart, which you can see a swatch of here. I chose a gray because I didn't want any of the white or black micro-glitters to blend in with the base colour.

Yep, that's only one coat, though the pink is brighter in person. Next time I think I'll try it by itself because it could probably be opaque in three coats. The formula was great,and the glitters spread evenly. It did require a bit of a heavy hand to transfer the glitters onto the nail, but it wasn't gloopy at all. After I had finished, I did go back and place a few more pink glitters with an orange stick because I'm OCD about bald spots, but I really didn't need to.
The polish dried very quickly, and I topped it with two coats of Seche Vite to smooth out a little grittiness. Picture time!
I absolutely love this polish, I can't stop looking at my nails! They remind of TV static but prettier. :)
You can buy F4 Polish on their Etsy shop, and you should also go like their Facebook page for updates on their shop. Their full-sized bottles sell for $8 USD, and are well-worth it if you ask me! I'll have reviews on the other three polishes spread out over the next few days, and I'm sure I'll love them just as much!
