F4 Polish "Summer Melon" & Julep "Courteney"





I cracked and ordered a few more mini polishes from F4 on Etsy (you can see more F4 here).  This one is called "Summer Melon". I first saw it when Lynn from "Oh So Lacquered" posted pictures of it over a lime green.  The combo was killer, and I love watermelons. I needed it immediately. I went straight to Etsy and couldn't find it in their shop. I asked about it on their Facebook, and they said that they were having trouble reordering one of the glitters, but they had a small amount left and would sell me one.  I was SO excited.  (Side note: This is the type of story that I usually would tell my husband, before I realized that it was sort of torture to him.  He likes that I like nail polish and blogging, but c'mon- I can only push it so far.  At least I know some of you will appreciate my backstory ;-)

I knew as soon as I ordered it that I would have to try to recreate Lynn's combo.  I had Julep "Courteney" (key lime creme) sitting in my untried polish box, and knew she would work perfectly!

Here's 3 layers of "Courteney" by herself:

Shiny!

I then did just one layer of "Summer Melon" on top.  This polish has a clear base and then teeny red, pink,and silver holo glitters, mixed with larger pink and dark green hexes, then big (but sparser for effect) black hexes:


So watermelon-y!


I love this combo and I love the sisters of F4! They are the only "Indie" polish I have tried, and I just can't say enough about them.  Be sure to check out their Etsy Shop!

  4. I love Courtney! What a green! And that story: that's me and my boyfriend. I get so revved up and then realize in the middle that he's so lost. Poor guy.

    1. It really is a super fab green! It applies so nicely too. I always preface talking to my husband now with, "I am going to talk about nail polish for a moment...". It lets him know he needs to at least pretend to be interested for a few minutes :)
