Gettin' my glow on

Who says glow-in-the-dark polish is just for Halloween? I had fun this week trying it out with American Apparel's glow-in-the-dark colour, Moon. This goes on sheer and glows the traditional fluorescent green. I used two coats over two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I haven't tried layering with other colours, but I'm fairly certain the base needs to be light for the glow to show. I originally had one coat of Moon, but I found two gave it extra glowing power.
I had some fun and painted little skulls on each nail. Looking back, they kinda look like some kind of skull jellyfish. Moon gives a semi-matte finish, and I really liked how it looked. After I painted on the skulls, I put a coat of Gosh matte topcoat over to mattify everything.
On my other hand, I had a different type of glow going on. One of the NEON variety! This is two coats of American Apparel's Neon Red.
My camera had a hard time getting the colour right. The second picture is more colour accurate, though it makes my hands look really red. I really loved the colour. Bright, but not eye-searingly so, and a very pretty shade. The consistency is a jelly/creme hybrid, and also dries to a semi-matte finish.
I've been doing really simple stuff lately as I'm going through exams. Please stick with me, I hope to get back into the groove of things soon! See ya!


  1. Oh thanks! I was always wondering if the (Glow in the dark) AA polishes were any good. I wish they were a bit stronger. :/ My glow in the dark polish from Serum No 5 is the best I've owned so far. :D

    But you made a cute design anyway (just as usual ;))

    1. Aww thank you! Ahhh I have heard and seen pictures of the amazingness that is Serum No. 5. I'd love to get my hands on a bottle, but it's not easy!

  2. You're my favourite nail blogger ever haha! =) I nominated you for a Liebster Award here: =)
