F4 "S'mores" Nail Polish w/ Essie "Like To Be Bad"

More F4!  The one I'm showing you today is "S'mores" and it's a really cool glitter (Side note: I love nail polishes that are named after food!).





I used Essie's "Like To Be Bad" (Wedding Collection 2012) as my base.  First, I did something I usually don't do- I added nail polish thinner to it until it was almost unrecognizable.  I love "Like To Be Bad" (although maybe not the name so much) but it is thick.  I felt like each time I went to use it, it was thicker and thicker.  I loved the consistency it became once I thinned it out.  I'd rather have a polish that is really thin and do multiple layers, than have a thick one that looks lumpy on. 
Here are 4 layers of my thinned out Essie. This dried SO quickly because it was SO thin:



 Then I did one layer of S'mores!  This polish has a clear base with teeny-tiny dark brown glitters, small light brown glitters, larger dark brown hexes, and even larger white hexes which of course, represent the marshmallows  :)



I LOVE this F4 glitter as well (see my other F4 posts here and here). You can find F4 polishes in their etsy shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/f4polish


I will leave you with a parting shot of the S'more I made on the 4th of July:

Have a super day!

    1. I had no idea what I was going to layer it over and I figured- I love pink & brown together so why not do that? I love it!

  2. Is it sad that I've never had a s'more before? =( I want one! I can definitely see why the F4's are so popular.

    1. You need to try one! You can even "cheat" and just melt the marshmallow in the microwave for a few seconds (if you don't have an open, outdoor fire handy!). As far as F4, I feel like they put a lot of thought into their glitter combos-they are so fun!

  7. What a yummy combo! I am not sure if I would like the pink on its own, but I LOVE it as a base to this glitter!

  8. Now I'm hungry.

    But this is a cool combo and really does look like a s'more. Shame about the formula for Love to be Bad; it's been on my wishlist but I may have to reconsider...
