Serum No 5 Fall 2014 Collection Releases Swatches & Review

Press Sample

I have 11 new Serum No 5 shades to show you tonight, plus a rerelease!  7 of these shades released this month September 5th and 5 will release in early October.

Some of the shades are glow in the dark, and I did my best to capture them.  Trust me though when I say they do glow even brighter than I could capture (and some were pretty bright!)

I’m going to start with the 7 September releases that are already available, then I will move onto the upcoming October releases.

A Class Act

A Class Act

A Class Act is a medium toned rose pink holographic.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

A Class Act CU

A Class Act AL

First Colors

First Colors

First Colors is a white crelly base with a mixture of red, yellow and blue glitters in multiple sizes mixed in.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Tassel’s Worth The Hassle

Tassels Worth The Hassle

Tassel’s Worth The Hassle is a deep charcoal jelly base with a gorgeous assortment with gold and silver holographic glitters in various sizes and gorgeous shimmer mixed in.  This is also a glow in the dark polish that has a nice green glow.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Tassles Worth The Hassel CU

Tassels Worth The Hassle Glow

(ok so this one I couldn’t capture, so you can only see a faint glow, it is more vibrant in person I swear)

Work Hard Play Hard

Work Hard Play Hard

Work Hard Play Hard is a milk chocolate jelly base packed with shimmer as well as aqua, blue, gold and magenta glitters.  I used 3 coats for these photos.

Work Hard Play Hard CU

Fractured Rainbows

Fractured Rainbows

Fractured Rainbows is a sheer pearly base with iridescent shred glitters.  I used 1 coat over Pink Lantern.

Fractured Rainbows side

Now the mistake I kind of made was using a glow in the dark shred top coat over a glow in the dark base.  This top coat has a pale bluish white glow to it ( as you can see in the bottle!)

Fractured Rainbow Glow

Leaves You Breathless

Leaves You Breathless

Leaves You Breathless is a perfect Fall top coat. This is a clear base packed with gold, green and red glitters.  I used 1 coat over a brown creme base.

Sleepy Holo

Sleepy Holo

Sleepy Holo is a beautiful charcoal grey holographic.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

And that wraps up the shades released in September, so now we are moving onto the shades that release in early October!

The next 4 shades are part of the Glowmeleon finishes.  They are chameleon (duo and multi chrome polishes that also glow in the dark)

Beam Me Up

Beam Me Up

Beam Me Up is a gorgeous gold shimmer with hints of a reddish coppery shift.  This was a surprising favorite (but not my #1!)  It’s really beautiful for this time of year.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Beam Me Up Side

Beam Me Up CU

Dark Matter

Dark Matter

Dark Matter is a deep chocolate brown with golden pink shimmer throughout.  Another gorgeous Fall shade.  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Galactic Rainbow

Galactic Rainbows

Galactic Rainbow is a reddish brown base with beautiful aqua blue shimmer throughout.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.  Galactic Rainbow has a nice blue glow to it.

Light Speed

Light Speed

Light Speed was my favorite of the bunch!  This is a greyed out purple base with blue to green shifting shimmer.  It has a nice blue glow to it in the dark.  I used 3 thin coats for these photos.

Light Speed side

Light Speed CU

Light Speed Glow

And the rerelease shade…

Pink Lantern

Pink Lantern

Pink Lantern is a vibrant pink creme that is gorgeous on it’s own and while in the dark!  I have always heard amazing things about the Serum No 5 GitD cremes, but this is seriously something you have to experience!  I used 2 coats for these photos.

Pink Lantern will only be available in October for Breast Cancer Awareness and Halloween.  How does Halloween and PINK tie in?  Well in the dark, it glows orange!

Pink Lantern Side

Pink Lantern CU

Pink Lantern Glow

The camera picked up a yellowish orange, but it’s actually VERY orange in person!

Overview

All of the shades that have released this Fall and that are releasing shortly are beautiful!  All of the glow in the darks look so much better in person than I could ever capture with my equipment, but really, they are SO worth it!

Price: $12.00 – $13.00

Where To Buy: Serum No 5 Website | International Stockists

Release Dates: The final 5 shades I showed you will release October 1st, the top 7 released September 5th and are currently available in the Serum No 5 shop.

Social Media Links: Facebook | Twitter | Instagram

Serum No 5 has also released some Cut It Out Nail Vinyls which I will be showing you in an upcoming post!  They are super cute for Fall and for Halloween, so keep an eye out for that one!
