Wicked Web

Today’s post is inspired by the creepsters that hang outside my kitchen window. After first considering the go-to Halloween orange for the background, I opted for a sky blue (Nubar Blue Hydrangea) to mimic my view.

And I finally made use a Nite Lites polish from the Diamond Cosmetics set currently on sale for Halloween, Moonglo, which gave it a shimmery finish, and reminded me of dew on spiders’ webs in the mornings.

Here’s the best glow-in-the-dark shot I managed to get. The Nite Lite polishes give off a good glow if you hold them up to a light first, but it fades really quickly to a hazy green. Additional coats boost the glow-ability some. In the picture above I used two.

Who else has been playing with glow-in-the-dark nail art recently? Let me know about any fun you’ve been having in the comments below.

Peace & love,
Sonja

  1. I love this! It’s so hard to take glow in the dark polish pics! It turned out really pretty both in and out of darkness!

  2. Great photo! I tried so hard to photograph mine…I caught a bit, but not as great as yours! And I love spiders :)

    I just posted my “Glow” mani on my blog (manicuredslayer.blogspot.com). I hope it’s ok that I posted it, if not I understand if you delete this comment.
