F4 Polish Grape Escape swatch and review

Hello!!
I have a ton of F4 Polishes to show you in the next few weeks, so this is the first of many. The girls who run this Etsy shop are really the sweetest and very professional. Like them on Facebook to find the latest news and swatches.
I have Grape Escape on today..and decided to show it to you two different ways. It's just gorgeous on it's own, opaque in 3 coats, and just so pretty as a top coat!
 Really loving Grape Escape over this lavender, Sugar Plum from Ciate.
 From their description: "GRAPE ESCAPE is a clear base with purple fine glitters , purple holo glitters , purple square glitters and purple satin matte hex glitters." Those "purple satin matte" hexes are light purple and such a nice unexpected addition, making this not your typical purple glitter.
 Really pretty!! Ciate Sugar Plum, 3 thin coats.

 Grape Escape has no issues with application or formula. No fishing for glitters either. I used the brush from the bottle to do this.
 A second look with Grape Escape over SpaRitual Heliotrope.
 Heliotrope. Perfect in 2 coats. In this macro shot, it seems I could have used 3 coats, but in real life..it looks great with only 2 coats.
 I dotted with a dotting tool and Grape Escape and topped this off with my usual Seche Vite and had a hard time getting a good angle that wasn't TOO SHINY. I wanted to show the sparkle dots, but it didn't translate to the photos as well as in real life.

Grape Escape will fill any purple glitter lovers dreams :) Which look do you like better?

Hope you are having a great weekend!

  2. Don't you just LOVE F4? I love their polishes and those three ladies are just, ah! They're such sweethearts! I love Grape Escape over Heliotrope, it almost disappears but then you look at it again and glitter! I haven't seen glitters dotted like that before, so pretty!

  3. Well, they both look fabulous, but I prefer it over Heliotrope. HOW do you make bead manis AND glitter manis look fresh and exciting? You're truly something else, dear. <3
