I saw THIS POST on Nailblog.net, and I absolutely knew I HAD to have "Day Glow" by Serum No. 5! It was like, the BEST glow-in-the-dark polish I had ever seen! So I trotted on over to the Serum No. 5 ETSY SHOP , and was in luck because "Day Glow" was in stock at the time. I debated the high (for me) price for just a minute before pressing the "purchase now" button, and I'm soooo glad I did. I understand this polish is selling out almost instantly once it's stocked. So, here's what I got for my troubles:
Pretty, right? This is 3 thin coats with top coat. Each coat dried pretty quickly, and although it's still a little streaky, it's not too bad. It's a nice bright frozen-lemonade yellow which I liked wearing alone. But it was just a little too plain for me.
So I did a water marble. I used Sinful Colors "Black on Black" and a Sally Hansen top coat I had...apparently it's the only one I own which is not "Fast Dry". Still, it was kind of sketchy, and I'm going to have to find a nice clear polish for water marbling (I'm open to suggestions!). And yes, I am purposefully stringing you along before I bust out the awesome glowing pics ;-)
Like I said, kind of sketchy. But I think it looks a little spooky, which is pretty cool!
OK, OK, I put my hand in the sun for about 5 minutes, locked myself in the bathroom, and this is what I saw:
These are UNEDITED pictures! This stuff is AMAZINGLY bright. Cool, right?
"Day Glow" is currently sold out, but according to the Etsy Shop announcement, it will be re-stocked on October 1. I got mine for $12 + $3 shipping at the beginning of August. I suggest shop-stalking to get your hands on some! :-)
