Heya! Are you ready for a triple threat? Because I have swatches, a review, AND nail art with a video tutorial, and it's all done using Serum No. 5 Infrared! It's also glow in the dark, click to see more!
Infrared by Serum No. 5 and it's a neon red glow in the dark polish.
I thought it would be more of a fire truck red, but it's leaning towards coral. This makes it fit right in the line of neon polish in my opinion, more than a regular red would!
Opacity is great for a neon polish, I used 2 coats and that was that! It's also really easy to work with, something you might not expect from a glow polish. Sometimes the pigment makes it hard, but that's definitely not the case with Infrared.
review of 5 other Serum No. 5 polishes I did!
Nonetheless, when charged under a UV light, this glow is beautiful and it's a deep magenta hue. It's a color you rarely find in glow polishes, so it's a definite must-have if you're into that like I am :D
Have you ever tried Serum No. 5 polishes? Tell me in the comments!
'hands making a heart' nail art.
Atomic Peach, it was a match made in heaven! It's way more neon and bright than the 'hands making a heart', but my lighting and picture quality has improved since I did those.
The fairies were a spontaneous idea I got because of the magical glow. I call them my musical fairies :D
I have a video tutorial for you guys, so you can learn how to do this! First, apply your base color and let it dry thoroughly. Tape off your cuticles to minimize cleanup afterwards, I use scotch tape and medical tape (it's nice and pliable).
This is the best part: take some white acrylic paint and paint your silhouette. I'm using my Basic One Gold Detail Brush from Christrio Scotland. Make sure not to get too much on your brush or your lines will be too bold, and use a longer brush and let it sweep over the nail naturally to get the best lines. Top coat and you're done!
