Glow in the dark nails - Essence Rock Out!! Top coat - review

Hello everyone!

Today I want to show you a manicure I wore for almost two weeks (11 days) because I loved it that much! It's one of the most fun and awesome manicures I've done in a while and I still can't bring myself to erase my nails. *blushes*

I recently acquired a new glow in the dark nail polish (actually, a top coat) from Essence, the "Rock out!!" collection, called "01 Biggest Fan" and I was thinking of a good way to use it.

The writing on the bottle says that the nails would get a milky touch from it, so, of course, I had to try it over a few different colors to see what the result looks like. It gives a gray-ish touch over a back nail polish, but it's barely noticeable over red, pink and light blue. Of course, it works best over a white base.

I used two coats of a white nail polish from Farmasi and two coats of the Essence glow in the dark top coat over it. Afterwards, I painted black stars using black acrylic paint and pink neon dots with Moyra no. 64. In the end I applied some stars from the top coat's bottle and a glossy top coat (I'll explain why, later on).

What I like about it

It's a great top coat and it really has an awesome glow in the dark effect. My nails glowed for about 10-15 minutes in the first days and up to 10 minutes over the second week. 

It was very easy to apply and, unlike other nail polishes where you have to "fish" to get the glitter or shapes out of the bottle, the little silver stars stuck to the brush each time I dipped it into the liquid. 

I'm sorry for the bad quality of the picture, I don't have any better ways to take pictures in the dark and show you how awesome the glow in the dark effect is, but you can look at this post for better pictures.

What I dislike about it

The only thing I can complain about is that because of the matte effect of the top coat, the stars don't stick to the nail very well. But I solved this problem using a normal top coat over them. the top coat did not affect the polish's glow and I think it even helped preserve it better.


If you want a glow in the dark top coat, I advise you to get your claws on this one. It does exactly what it promises to do and it lasts a long time on the nails. ^_^

What do you think about this top coat? Have you tried it? 
If not, would you like to play with it? :D

Foarte draguta manichiura si imi place ideea ca ai folosit o oja glow in the dark. Eu nu detin nici una in colectie desi ma tenteaza foarte mult cate o data sa-mi cumpar.
