The one with the glow in the dark watermarble?

hahah Yes, the post title ends in a question mark. I guess it's really up for interpretation if the mess on my nails can be considered a watermarble! haha I'm not a good watermarbler. I've tried TONS of times in the past, but I've only had one success. So what made me try to watermarble this time? Curiosity. I wanted to know if glow in the dark polishes could be marbled and still glow.

DISCLAIMER: THIS POST IS NOT MEANT TO BE PERFECT. CLEAN-UP FOR WATERMARBLES IS HARD EVEN WITHOUT THE ADDED HORRID GLOW IN THE DARK ASPECT. THERE IS NO NEED TO BE MEAN OR RUDE.


In preparing for this adventure, I chose two of the most pigmented GITD polishes I know of - Ninja Polish Howling Blue Moon and the orange pumpkin polish. I laid down a base of white, figuring having the extra glow-y component of white couldn't hurt! Here's what ended up on my nails...
Not a perfect watermarble by any means. But it does get the point across :) You can see blue and orange. So how does it rate on the glow scale? Charged up under the black light, you can see everywhere I missed in clean-up!

CHECK THAT OUT. At least we know it works under the black light :) So shall we see if it actually glows in the dark?
YOU CAN ACTUALLY TELL THERE'S DIFFERENT COLORS THERE. You can see the blue and you can see the orange. Is it perfect? No. But it works! I'm already planning my next GITD watermarble. I'm going to try to incorporate a green if I can find one pigmented enough!

Want a Howling Blue Moon of your very own? GO HERE and get put on the e-mail list for when it comes back in stock! Retail is $9 a bottle, and it's worth every freakin' penny! Buy some of the other Ninja Halloween collection, while you're at it...I picked up the orange pumpkin polish at Rite Aid, and all of those polishes are well worth the $1.99-2.99 I paid for them!


**DISCLAIMER** I was not paid for this review by anyone. I either purchased these polishes myself or were given gifts as friends because I could not find the particular shade I wanted myself. I am not a professional nail tech, nor do I want to be. I'm just someone who enjoys polishing my own nails :)
