Serum No. 5 FW14: Light Speed Glow in the Dark Polish with Skull and Crossbones

Happy Belated Halloween! If you follow my Instagram you would have seen these nails on actual Halloween, so don't judge me.  I blame it on the fact that I need a new computer.  Once Black Friday comes (which btw is my FAVORITE shopping day of the year) I am gonna get me a shiny new laptop w00t!

Light Speed is my very first polish from the FW14 collection of Serum No. 5 , bought during my llarowe haul, and I have to say I am in love with it!  I mean, how could you not be?! It is green shimmer in some light, teal shimmer in another, purple shimmer at a (very) deep angle, and it glows in the dark! Win win win.  I used 4 thin coats for these swatches because I wanted it to be completely opaque, but you can also do 1-2 coats over black polish.

I then freehanded the skull and crossbones using L.A.Colors Art Deco in White.  I used the actual striper brush that comes in the bottle for the shafts of the bones, a dotting tool to make the heads of the bones, and a small detailing brush to make the skull.  I am SO proud of myself that these turned out so well, maybe I am finally getting better at freehanding nail art!

I did find it hard to capture the glow but after a bajillion tries I grabbed a decent shot.  What is weird is that I could hardly see the glow when I was at work holding my fingers under bright fluorescent lights, but in the dark in my bed they were totally glowing (even though I had the lights out for a good while)...creepy...
