It's been slow around here, I've been super busy with a few projects and planning my first family vacation in 3 years! Oh man...I cannot wait :)
Now, onto today's swatches. I have one of the first Indie brands I ever swatched for back up on the blog and I'm happy to say that their formulas are still wonderful and this collection rocks for the Summer!! I'm not a huge fan of neons, in general...but you know what? Sometimes you just need to go bright am I right? You can find F4 polish on facebook
and shop their collection at their Etsy
All swatches are 2 coats over 1-2 coat(s) of Zoya Purity (white makes neons pop more). HK Girl top coat. All have great formula, no issues in application except there were a few unhappy stars in the pink one, I'll explain when you get to it..
F4 polish Sunshine
- "Sunshine is bright yellow with pink small glitters, medium and large round glitters and hot pink stars." The pink glitters are more reflective, and pinker in real life :)
Neons are notoriously hard to photograph, so I did need to play around
with the settings and color correct for these. If my skin looks off,
that's why. I'd rather sacrifice skin tone accuracy in favor of a color
F4 polish Flamingo
- "Flamingo is a bright pink with small black squares, medium hexes and black stars." A few of the black stars in this polish, you can see...look a little bit mangled. Maybe just in the batch I got. You could easily pluck them off with a tweezer while the polish is still wet.
F4 polish Envy
- "Envy is a bright green glow in the dark with small white squares, small gold holo glitters, and green and gold circle glitters." This one somehow makes me think of drinks by the pool, and would also make a great St Patty's mani!
F4 polish Aruba
- "Aruba is a bright orange with small orange a purple matte glitters." This is the only one that I couldn't get quite right color wise. It's not this fluorescent in real life and the orange is a tad more orange, and less red.
So, what do you think? Will you be wearing brights this Summer? Neons even? Which is your fave? I'd have to say, for me..surprisingly it's Sunshine, the yellow neon that's my favorite. Love the hot pink glitters popping out in it :)
Hope your weekend is going well!
