Glitter Me Up Friday...on a Saturday...again

Better late, than never, right? Besides, I couldn't NOT post this beautiful polish! It's another indie glitter:  Space Mountain by F4. Let me tell you, F4's got it going on! If you haven't already, you MUST swing by their Etsy shop and check out all the pretties they have for sale!

(I thought this pic was funny. Yes that's Batman on my hand. It's a bandaid covering a booboo I got. It looks like he's flying up to snatch the bottle I'm holding. Why do I have Batman bandaids? Because I'm a mom of 3 little boys, that's why and you simply CANNOT find a bandaid in this house that doesnt have some kind of super hero or cartoon on it. It's all good though, cuz we all know Batman rocks...ok, random digression over)

Space Mountain is an awesome, fairly dense mix of white square, matte blue and violet hex, fine black and holo glitter in a clear base. This is one of 5 F4 polishes that I own and I absolutely love them ALL. Each one is packed with glitter and ALL the glitters come easily out of the bottle (no fishing for a certain size/shape/color) and spread out beautifully over the nail. I just love gorgeous, well behaved glitters! And the most remarkable thing is, despite the density of the glitters, all my F4 polishes dry amazingly smooth and they don't devour top coat like a lot of glitters tend to do. Just slick a coat of Seche Vite on top and you're done. 

The above swatches are 2 coats of Space Mountain over 2 coats of Catrice Purposely Purple, plus one coat of Seche Vite on top of it all. 

LOVE!! Speaking of love, go and show some to my GMUF sisters:

    1. i thought you might dig this mani--lots of purpley goodness in it. and glad you like my kids' taste in bandaids :)

  2. I generally don't buy cartoony band-aids because they cost more than plain ones, and I'm not so fond of the plastic type material. If I had kids, though, absolutely I'd buy all the cartoon ones because everyone knows that superhero band-aids magically make you feel better faster. I do like band-aids that have designs on them because no one's skin matches normal band-aid color. If it's going to be obvious that you've got one on, might as well have a brightly colored one!

    1. lol sometimes i think my kids fall down on purpose just so they can get to wear a Batman/Shrek/Spongebob/whatever character we happen to have on hand bandaid. And you're SO right. They do make everything magically better and brightly colored ones are so much better than ugly beige ones! I really like the 3M cartoon bandaids because they are made out of a soft, more fabric-like material. I hate the plastic ones because they never stick well.
