Spell Polish ~ Turn off the lights and I’ll glow



Spell Polish ~ Turn off the lights and I’ll glow
Neon green glow in the dark

Here’s the other Spell Polish I received in my latest monthly package from Norway Nails. It’s so much different than Troll that I showed you in this post.

The formula is gloopy but not difficult to apply anyway. It dries a little bit faster than average. At first I thought it dried fast, but don’t let the dry looking surface fool you like it fooled me! I wasn’t content before I had applied three coats. The polish dries up semi matte, but I needed to apply a layer of topcoat to smooth out the little irregularities I had. Oh, and I have to mention the smell too – it smells odd. Not bad, just odd.

So here’s what three coats and a layer of Essence Top Sealer looks like in the sun:


It was way more neon in real life, but it got too much for the camera! :D


Here’s a picture from my lightbox. That shows the neon just a little bit better.


And! This polish glows under UV light. I haven’t got any UV-lamps though so I couldn’t take a picture of that. But it’s also a glow in the dark-polish, so I obviously tested that out.

It’s my first attempt to take pictures of a nail polish in the dark, so please bear with me, okay? Here it is: 


Here's the matching card, that came with the polish: 



The glow in the dark effect is not going to keep you awake at night, but it’s cool that it’s there.
                                        

Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Average
Finish: Neon that glows in the dark and under UV-lights
Overall impression: I love the colour and I’d wear it just for that. Forget about the glow in the dark, that’s not this polish’s greatest feature
Buy again: No

  1. Colour is great, the glowing is funny, but I don't like odd and strong smells. Ferity has them.

  2. It's really cool - and if it's even more neon green in person I'm guessing you needed sun glasses :D

    1. Uh, that's amazing to hear! I've become fond of neons lately as the formulas get better and better too :)

  4. What a bright and bold colour! I like these sorta shades. It is cool that it glows too - I've got the Essence glow in the night polish, that I must try at some point. Not really thought about how to photograph it though! :-)

    1. Photographing it was a challenge, because I've never tried photographing in the dark before. It was fun to try! I'm looking forward to seeing your attempts with the Essence :)
