Claire's Blacklight

Last time I was out at Claire's, I spied this purple with silver glitter polish that is labeled only as Blacklight, so I jumped on it.  The Zumba class I go to turns on the blacklights and party lights on Thursdays, so I was excited to try it out.

Okay, first disappointment, this polish was SUPER thick.  I didn't want to add any thinner in case I messed up the blacklight properties somehow, but I did add 3 ballz to help shake it all up.  I used a base of Seche Natural and it took me 3 coats of polish to just have an even surface to work with.  I did not use a top coat.  The formula was very messy (and thick) and it dried matte and very gritty.

Here's my semi-sunny picture.  The glitter looks silver/blue which is cool but you can see hot gritty it is.

Shade picture - more grit, more purple...

Okay the worst part?  Under the blacklight, this polish did nothing.  No glow, nada.  I was really disappointed.  :[

  3. I'm also interested on where to buy polish balls. Cute color, shame it didn't work and was a pain to use.

  4. Whoomp whoomp. That sucks. I hate when you get the opposite of what you were expecting.

  5. I just buy regular Daisy Ammo BB pellets like these: http://www.walmart.com/ip/Daisy-6000ct-BB-Ammo/15729973

  6. Thanks for reviewing this. I will not waste my $ on this one. :/

  7. LA Girl has really nice black light polish that actually works. I have worn it to concerts, black light miniature golf, and most recently the dark rides at Disneyland....it was super bright!!
