At a recent trip to Ulta, I got drawn in by the Halloween display from Wet N Wild (and who wouldn't?! How cute are these bottles??) I saw that they had a glow in the dark polish, and I figured for $1.99 it was worth a try.
The bottle suggested applying three coats. So I did that, and then turned off the lights. And nothing happened. But then I remembered that sometimes you have to hold glow in the dark things under a light for a bit to make them work. So I tried that, and hot damn, my nails were glowing!
My camera had a hard time capturing it, so here's the best I could get! About 10 minutes later I turned off the lights again, and they were barely glowing. So unfortunately I don't think these would work for all night glowing nails. But they're cool for a quick effect.
And, the polish barely has a color to it, so you could easily layer 3 coats over another color.
All in all, this was not as cool as I hoped, but for $1.99 it's a neat effect!
