F4 Pink Penquin

I've got a quick post for you tonight- this is F4's Pink Penquin. I'm pretty sure I layered this over one of the Maybelline Colour Show for fall polishes (Auburn Ablaze, I think?). Anyways, the base colour is dark enough that you can really see what kind of glitter comprises Pink Penquin; a mixture of small white glitters and a few black glitters with bigger pops of pink. This is really fun! I love all the fine white glitter in this, and it kind of reminds me of static on TV. Just prettier. What do you think of Pink Penquin? 




The only thing I don't get is the name... why Pink Penquin instead of Pink Penguin? I feel like there's a reference I'm missing there. Does anyone know what inspired the name in this case? Let me in on the secret!

    1. Exactly! TV static would be so much more popular with pink in it. ;) Someone needs to get on that!

  4. Super cute! Love the big pops of pink glitter among the small black and white static glitter! I think this would look great over grey!

    1. I haven't been able to find out why it's spelled as it is, but I suppose it'll just have to add to the mystique of the polish. ;)

    1. Agreed! It's the perfect amount of white to balance the black and pink glitters.

  9. I have always read the name of this polish as penguin when I've seen it, and didn't realize until you pointed it out that its a Q lol. Now I'm curious!
