I have a very cool review for you today! A swatch of one of the Born Pretty Store glow in the dark polishes! I hugely love glow in the dark stuff, and these polishes by ChNail are really fun. Born Pretty Store sells a total of 12 different shades ranging from blue to yellow to red and more. I have one of them to show you, a minty green (what else!) which you can find on the site here.
ChNail #02 – Here is 3 coats of the glow in the dark polish over 1 coat of white BK matte nail polish (my fav white polish!). Just one coat of this polish will give you a nice glow in the dark effect, layered over a design or solid shade. Since I was after the mint green colour I layered this over white to achieve the effect you see pictured above. The formula and consistency of this polish is a bit different, it’s more like a gel, I wouldn’t call it gloopy or thick since it’s quite easy to even out on your nails, but it is something entirely different to regular nail polish formulas. I didn’t experience any troubles with it in any case! The polish also has a dull finish when it dries, so I added a layer of topcoat to add some shine.
And this is the effect in the dark! You charge these under a lamp, and then the glow in the dark effect will gradually start to fade.
The thing I love most about this is how it looks layered over white. The mint green almost turns into this pastel neon shade. It’s utterly gorgeous! Sometimes sheer doesn’t always mean bad news and that’s definitely the case with this polish in my opinion. You can find this glow in the dark polish, ChNail #02, at Born Pretty Store for $4.99.
