Glow in the dark table lamp nail art
I know, it's not my usual creepy kind of glow in the dark nail art that you're used to... It's an adapted recreation of one of my own designs, the 'plugged in' 3D nail art that I did back in May. This time I used Serum No. 5 Sky Lights to light up the lamp with a pretty blue glow, and I have a video tutorial that will show you how to make this! Click to see more!
It also bothered me that the design was neither detailed, or pretty, so I decided to remedy that as well. I gave the lamp some context, added a floor so the electrical outlet didn't just hang in empty space, and I gave the lamp a nice little see-through lampshade. So fancy!
I swear, half the time I don't know how anything ever appears on my nails. It's like magic. It was all painted with acrylic paint and my Roubloff 00 detail brush.
Instinct and it's just the most perfect shade of happy happy blue!
This also clears up the confusion about Instinct being glow in the dark or UV reactive. As you can see, it does NOT glow in the dark (which is what I thought when this polish was first released). It IS however UV reactive, which means it lights up really brightly under a black light. If the light goes out however, the glow is gone, while the lampshade, which is actually glow in the dark, stays glowy. Does that make sense to anyone else but me?
