Polish Days: The Number 5

Apologies for cutting it really close this month by posting this up now. I know being sick over the weekend isn’t a good excuse, but I nearly gave up on this manicure because I just couldn’t get it right. After three days and over half a dozen attempts, I’m glad to say I’m finally done.

To tie in with the theme, the polishes I used are from Serum No. 5. This gradient was inspired by slacquerr because of this. Isn’t that amazing? I wanted to take things a step further and stamp over it but I didn’t have enough time.

I won’t bore you with my story because it past 3am here! All GitD shots were charged under a fluorescent daylight bulb for 5 – 10 seconds. I must say, this was worth the effort because it’s absolutely gorgeous. Plus, this entire glow in the dark business appeals to the kid in me. Thanks for reading!
