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

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.

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.

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!

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


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

  1. This is a gorgeous collection. Leaves You Breathless and Sleepy Holo are my faves but I wouldn’t throw any of them out of bed.


    Love First Colors! I am going to get myself some, thanks for such great swatches!

  3. Beautiful swatches! Every time I see swatches of Leaves You Breathless, my resolve weakens. It is so perfect for fall! <3

  4. I can’t even pick a favorite! As I kept scrolling, I was like…”wait, I love this one more!” LOL!

    • I do that as I’m posting! I have favs set in mind, then after looking at all the pics in one spot I get confused!

  5. Two gorgeous collections! Your swatches make me want them all, but especially Tassel’s Worth The Hassle! (sorry if this comes through twice, it timed out on my first attempt…)

  6. I’ve never tried Serum No. 5 but I am really admiring these unique polishes right now! Light Speed, Dark Matter, & Leaves You Breathless are my favorites.

  7. Tassel’s Worth the Hassle is my favorite from this group! I think it is so unique and beautiful. Lisa, I have to say, your nails are so perfect all the time!

  8. Omg what are you doing to me??? My bank account is going to be very unhappy because I want all of them! The whole collection. Gosh those are beautiful. I definitely want Tassle’s Worth The Hassle though, I don’t have anything like it at all.

  9. What a beautiful collection of polishes. I love the Leaves You Beautiful polish. SO gorgeous!
