F4 Polish From Etsy~ Pink Penguin and Mint Chocolate Chip Nail Polish


After being tortured and tormented (dramatic :D ) by Etsy polishes that I could never seem to get my hands on, I stumbled upon F4 Polish and they had these 2 colors that just looked so cool I had to try them!

Pink Penguin is a clear base with tiny black & white matte glitters mixed with matte pink hexes!  I am in love with the matte glitters- they are so pretty and different.  This color combo is fantastic! I used 2 layers on their own here and got great coverage:




Next is Mint Chocolate Chip which looks exactly like the namesake ice cream.  A semi-sheer minty base with teeny, fine brown glitter.  I used 3 layers here:



This is making me hungry...

I am so pleased with my first "indie polish" purchase.  F4 has some great stuff in their shop, and I am already planning my next order!  Definitely check them out!

Have you tried any Etsy polishes yet?

  2. While Pink Penguin looks like fun, I love the somewhat "cloudy" look of Mint Chocolate Chip -- looks like a sandwich mani! And yeah...I'm hungry too now, lol!

    Is it just me, or are Etsy polishes gaining in popularity? Some pretty amazing and creative things coming from those shops!

    1. You nailed it- it does have the creamy-cloudy feeling and I couldn't believe how shiny it was too! I went to my freezer and scarfed down some "Fried Ice Cream" (Omg, do you have Turkey Hill ice cream up there? It is so good!) since I was without any Mint Chocolate Chip!

    2. "Fried Ice Cream"? What in tarnation is that? And no, we don't have Turkey Hill Ice Cream here, but now I'm dying to try it!

      SO good! It's "Cinnamon ice cream swirled with cinnamon sopapilla and sweet tostada pieces". To. Die. For! It's limited edition and usually only comes out around Cinco de Mayo. Let's just say I've been kind of over-doing it because I know it won't be around long!
