Now are you ready for some glow in the dark goodness that Serum No 5 is well known for? Good because you are in for a treat!
Serum No 5 is releasing her SS15 Part 1 collection on May 1st (just a couple more days!) and there are 7 shades that make up this collection. 6 are glow in the dark which are softer shades in daylight but have an intense glow when it gets dark, while 1 is a softer shade that ties into almost a wedding theme (along with a few more older shades I’ll be sharing with you tomorrow!)
Budding Light is the only top coat in the collection. This is a mix of micro green and turquoise flakes in a glow in the dark base. This glows green in the dark. You’ll see the glow in the dark shade below and with just 1 coat there is a faint glow, but the bottle kind of overtook the photo, but if you look at my nails, you can see they are glowing a bit.
The bottle definitely wanted the spotlight though.
Guiding Light is a sheer white shimmery polish that glows light blue/white in the dark. I am in love with the glow on this one. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
Highlight is a sheer beige with shimmer glow in the dark. I used 3 thin coats for these photos and as you can see, there is still VNL. This is a lovely neutral though. It glows aqua in the dark.
Moonlight is a sheer light grey with shimmer that glows green in the dark. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
Starlight is a sheer shimmery baby pink that glows purple in the dark. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
Twilight is a sheer bluish grey with blue and silver shimmer that glows blue in the dark. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
Something Blue is a pale sheer grey blue crelly base with blue micro glitters and white small hex glitters. I used 3 thin coats for these photos.
This shade does not glow in the dark and actually ties in with various shades from past SS collections that have a wedding like theme.
All 7 shades were lovely to work with if you are okay with sheerer polishes. They were created with a softer look in mind and I used very thin coats when I paint, but they will have more opacity if you are a little more heavy handed than I was in application. All of them look VERY sheer on first coat but they do build up nicely. The glow on all of them is really nice and I like that they all pretty much have a different glow color!
Release Date: May 1st, 2015
Serum No 5 has also released some Cut It Out Nail Vinyls which I will be showing you in an upcoming post!
Are you a fan of glow in the dark shades? What about shades with a softer look such as these? I’d love to hear about it in the comments!
