Black Cat Lacquer - Paranormal

Another cool Halloween inspired polish from Black Cat Lacquer! This one is filled with opalescent/iridescent medium sized squares and tiny hexes in a glow in the dark base. I chose to layer it over a light base color because glow in the dark polishes tend to work better that way.. and it did! (see pic further down). A beautiful subtle glitter by day, and totally awesome by night! :D

This is 2 coats of Paranormal over Kleancolor Pastel Yellow (which can be seen by itself at the end of this post), followed by 1 coat of topcoat.

There was no sun in sight today, so I had to take pics indoors. Unfortunately I've got severe lobster hands in some of these photos (I swear they didn't look that way in person!).

I held my hand under a lamp for about a minute to "charge" the polish, then took this picture in total darkness by adjusting my camera's exposure to it's highest/longest setting:
pretty cool, eh? ..though it was brighter in person.

Kleancolor Pastel Yellow is.. you guessed it - a pastel yellow. This polish was a pain in the butt to apply. I ended up doing 4 coats just to get it looking smooth and streak free.

I purchased Paranormal from the Black Cat Lacquer Etsy page, and the Kleancolor from Amazon.com (it came in a multi-pack of pastels).

Thanks for stopping by! :)
