That Special Glow

Ok I just can't contain my excitement about having my first glow in the dark polish that I'm posting again - hey don't  laugh at me, I gotta get in while I can! :-)
Let's just get to business, shall we?
This is Strawberry Glow from Polish Addict, a beautiful glow in the dark polish. I think the full bottle might have accidentally jumped into my shopping cart after I put the sample on my nails! :-/
Strawberry Glow is a beautiful girly pink sheer polish with silver holographic flecks that glow in the dark. The best way to get this polish to really turn it up in the dark, is to 'charge' it by holding your nails under a light, kind of close to the bulb for a minute to two. Be careful not to burn yourself!

This is three regular coats of Strawberry Glow with no undies, and a coat of HK Girl topcoat. This is a really great polish for a light look, as it gives just a slight amount of color and sparkle to your nail without completely taking over with color. I would anticipate that it would make a lovely polish for pink lovers that would need a conservative office polish, but still give you the satisfaction of having a lovely polish.

 

Here is a lovely macro to show you the holo pieces

Now this is three regular coats of Strawberry Glow under Butter London's Nail Foundation, which is a wonderful nude base. While the Nail Foundation is not completely opaque, you can see it doesn't take much to change the depth of the polish. On my ring finger, I used a no name baby pink I had from a sample polish, which has really made Strawberry Glow pop. I'm looking forward to layering other pinks/berrys under Strawberry to really have some fun, and did I mention that it's glow in the dark???? 
  
Let me tell you, I had a heck of a time trying to photograph the glow of the polish in the dark. I even used my black sheets and comforter to make it completely dark when I snapped this, and even then this is like the seventh photo I grabbed before I was satisfied.
Seriously, I just can't stand how fun this polish is, I love waving my fingers around in the dark, and my daughter's eyes about fell out of her sockets when she saw it! Guess what I'll be doing today?!?!
