Ah its feeling so great to have my mojo back! Today I have a bright and fun post to share with you consisting of three Serum No. 5 Glow in the dark Neons paired along with some fun Pueen Stamping using their new Encore plates which I love! With these neons I decided to use a white base to help them pop out a little more resulting in only needing one coat. They did also show full opacity in 2-3 coats.
I Gleam in Pink is an eye searing pink neon cream that glows and orangey-pink in the dark. This one had the least glow effect of the three I tried but under the black light it looked banging. This also had a textured finish due to the glow pigment but with topcoat it smoothed out nicely.
Black and white were really the only colors that stood out nicely as a stamp on this bright color so I went with some black hearts using Cult Nails Nevermore and Pueen SE02A.
Solar Power is a yellow neon cream that glows lime green in the dark. The glow effect was very bright and was probably my favorite for this reason. Using this color over white helped with the application as yellows can be streaky at times.
I used Rescue Beautys ‘Become One’ and Pueen SE03B for a sort of lemon lime type of feel. This is the manicure I ended with and am still wearing right now!
Orange You Sunny is another eye-searing color with a nice orangey glow to it in the dark. It glows a little brighter then what I was able to capture. Pair this with the other two colors and you’d have a perfect summer mani!
I wasn’t feeling most of the colors I tried to use over this shade so I settled with Cult Nails ‘Love at First Sight’ and some nice flowers from Pueen SE02A. I really loved the look of this under the black light!
All in all I was impressed with these colors and their glow effect. Serum No. 5 does it once again with their GITD polishes! I love my growing collection of creams from them!
