It’s the stuff of nightmares. The lights go out and you can’t find your fingers! What is a girl to do? You need your fingers. You actually think of your fingers as your 10 little helpers. The good news is this: No matter how dark it gets, we know exactly how you can always locate your digits: glow in the dark nail polish. Funky nails are hot again; keep your nails in trend with a glowing manicure.
Nails that Glow are Always in Fashion
That’s right, ladies. Two or three coats of this polish will help you keep track of your fingers in the darkest of situations. No more wondering where your fingers have gone once the lights go out! Not only will you be able to find your fingers, but you will be one of the most fashion-forward girls on the block. You don’t want to buy just any nail polish; you already know this from your years of experience. Follow these tips for finding the perfect nail polish.
Don’t Be Cheap
Let’s face it: You get what you pay for. That phrase is as old as it is true. Cheap nail polishes are thin, requiring more than the average number of coats. The more coats you have to apply, the more likely you are to experience smears, dings and chips. Sure, you can pay a buck for a bottle of glow in the dark nail polish and cross your fingers or you can spend a few dollars and get something better. We suggest going the ‘few bucks more’ route.
People are more than happy to share their opinions, especially negative ones. Read several online reviews regarding the various brands of glow in the dark nail polish. You will quickly find the ones that people love and the ones that they hate.
Keep in mind that you can’t please all of the people all of the time. Take what you read with a grain of salt. That said, if a polish has more negative reviews than positive ones, you can confidently pass it by. If, on the other hand, the polish has several stellar reviews and very few that are negative, it’s probably a safe buy.
Look for Name Brands
Some of the best nail polishes have names that you know. For example, Sally Hansen and OPI always deliver. These manufacturers have glowing nail polish that is absolutely fantastic. That doesn’t mean that unheard of brands don’t make fab polishes, but when you stick with a name that you know, you are more likely to be satisfied.
Can’t find the polishes in your local drug store? A simple Google Images search will lead you to stores that carry glowing polish by popular manufacturers. Simply click on the links provided and you will be taken to sites that either sell or tell you where to buy. You can also find glowing polishes on eBay, Amazon and Etsy. Sign on to any of the sites and conduct a quick search; you’ll find glowing polishes in a variety of colors.
Make Your Own
No buying guide is complete without telling you how to do it yourself. Buying the right supplies will let you make a fantastic glow in the dark nail polish. In fact, for just a bit more of the cost of a bottle, you can purchase the needed supplies. By making your own nail polish, you also get the change to further enhance your own nail designs.
Buy your favorite brand of clear polish. Again, we like OPI nail polish and Sally Hansen. Buy a glow stick or a pack of glow sticks. Open the polish and set the brush to the side. Hold the glow stick over the bottle of polish, snip both ends, empty the glow stick into the bottle of clear polish, and replace the brush. Shake well and apply to your nails. Just two or three coats will give your nails a fabulous sheen and a gorgeous glow.
Keep Your Fingers Glowing
Glow in the dark nail polish is fashion forward. Those in the know have seen it on the runways, in fashion magazines and everywhere in between. You don’t have to be a supermodel to get the super look! You also never have to lose track of your fingers again. With just a small amount of research and shopping savvy, you can easily find the perfect nail polish. Remember: If you can’t find it, you can make it!
