X-ray nail art (glow in the dark)

Wouldn't we all like to have X-ray vision sometimes? I used to think my mom had the ability to see through walls, she always, ALWAYS knew what I was up to! I painted some X-Ray nail art for laughs, plus a video tutorial! Click to see more!

The great glow in the dark effect is achieved by painting outlines with clear glow in the dark top coat. It's hard to see in the light, but when it gets dark, woohoo! I did this with some homemade glow in the dark top coat that I made with supplies from Misfits On 8th. I bought the supplies maybe two years ago already and I'm only now starting to enjoy it fully.

If you're interested, I made a tiny instruction video on Instagram, showing how I made the top coat!
All of it, except for the glowy outline, was painted with acrylic paint, a piece of makeup sponge to do the background and my two favorite brushes: my Basic One Gold detail brush from Christrio Scotland and my Roubloff 00 from Adnails Manucure. You can actually see me switch between the two brushes, in the video while I'm painting the shoes. I needed more precision and smaller lines.
