Serum No 5 SS15 (partial collection review)

Good evening all!  I am so tired and my knees hurt.  Sometimes I feel old.  I know I'm not but really, why do the outsides of my knees hurt after I run a long distance?  Sigh.  Ok, enough of my shining.  Since it's night time I thought it would be fun to share some glow in the dark polish with you.  And who makes the best glow in the dark polish?  Serum No 5 of course!  What I have to share with you now are 2 polishes from the Spring/Summer 2015 collection.  I think it is so cool that Victoria has so many different glow shades!  I definitely don't wear enough glowing the dark polish, and it's just so darn fun.  Victoria has tons of glow in the dark polishes in her shop right now and they are $13 each.  Head over and I bet you'll find one you want!

Coral-ectric is a beautiful coral full of gold shimmer.  This is a color combo that is so perfect, it always looks fabulous!  Coral-ectric had a great formula and applied easily and smoothly. I used 3 coats for full coverage.  I did notice a bit of a "textured" feel to Coral-ectric (typical for glow in the dark pigment) so I slapped on a layer of topcoat.

Victoria suggests using a white or light base for maximum glow effect but look how bright Coral-ectric is all on it's own!

Guiding Light is a nice bright white polish full of soft silvery and iridescent shimmer.  Guiding Light was a bit more sheer and I ended up using 4 coats to completely cover my nails.  But you know what?  The white glow is so stunning I don't even mind having to paint 4 coats!  Guiding Light dried with a slightly gritty feel so I used a layer of topcoat to smooth it out.
