Serum No 5; Don't Peek, All of the Lights

Good evening lovely readers!  I have another post to share with you tonight and it's got some fun glow in the dark, flash in the lights excitement of you!  Tonight I have a couple fab polishes from Serum No 5.  These are both older colors - from last year I think?  But both are still available in the shop.  I found them both fun and pretty and original.  So let's jump on in and check out these awesome Serums!

Alrighty then, up first I have Don't Peek, a nude crelly full of green, gold, brown and copper glitters.  What an interesting blend of colors, and it works!  It's subtle and pretty and a great option for those that can't have overly flashy nails in the office.  The formula was slightly sheer but built up well in 3 coats (as is normal for most crellies).  Don't Peek dries slightly gritty so you definitely want some topcoat to smooth and shine it up.   Don't Peek is available in the Serum shop for $13.

One thing Serum No 5 excels at is making glow in the dark polish.  Victoria must have some type of magical powder in her supplies because her polish glows brighter than every other brand I have tried. Barely any charge needed and these babies were lighting my way through the dark house.

If you remember the hub bub over Flashing Lights then this polish should interest you!  All of the Lights is a similar reflective topcoat but it's made with multi chrome flakies.  It's a really lovely polish all on it's own.  Though it is sheer - and it's recommended that you only use 1 coat and no topcoat (and this polish has a gritty feel when dry).  I do feel the reflective nature was slightly less awesome than Flashing Lights.  The only way you actually see this work is if you have a flash on your camera. So my pictures below are 1 layer of All of the Lights and no topcoat.  All of the Lights is available in the Serum shop and is $14.50.

All of the Lights with flash.  You can see how the polish catches the light and reflects it back.  Like I mentioned before, it's not as strong as the effect Flashing Lights had.

And just for kicks I decided to try All of the Lights with 3 coats and topcoat.  Of course the reflective nature won't work since I have so many coats and topcoat.  But look how pretty it is!  It's much deeper, more shine, more color shift.
