…You don’t Glow me, Gurl!
So y’all know I love the glitter. I love the colour. I love the puns. But there’s one thing I love more than a good HARD pun, is glow in zee dark. Ah-mah-zhing!
In the spirit of puns and upcoming HUMP-day, I present the Official Party-Hard HUMP-day attire. For all my Darlings, to confirm: Neon talons pop when black lights are added. Glow in the dark talons pop… non stop… when the lights are out.
I’ve been rockin’ out with these SO HARD, that it’s drastically affected my sleep patterns. I have gotten my glow on previously, but between ADHD and co-habiting with another Raptor – who doesn’t necessarily appreciate my level of Fabulous D.R.A.M.A. at 2am on a work night – these are hard work, to werk.
All week I’ve been nerding out with this look. During the daylight hours, they look very… demure… *evil laughter*
if only they knew. Nominally and without “charge” they’re white with a neon orange talon, all accented with black graphics. Black finishing graphics used are Indian henna flower split across 2 nails, Pacman de-constructed and geometric lines with intersecting planes. Simple, as these aren’t the main feature!
During the bewitching hours, these little piggies come to life… similar to what happens in the delicatessen after hours… Zombie piggies. No. Not really, Jeez.
There’s never any meat left over. I staggered the colours used for the glow accents to give a noticeable contrast and nod to the graphic prints used. Feature talon changes from orange to yellow (Wakka-wakka Pacman). Flower talons are a silky violet colour (think luxurious bolts of fabrics). Geo’s are the strongest of all the colours a vibrant green (like the reverse side of a neon panel).
Daylight hours – they’re reserved Reporter Clark Kent – fairly boring. After hours – these talons are the mischievous love-child of a lightsabre, TRON, Liberace and Downtown Tokyo – a very complicated spliced embryo – a few broken eggs and all that.
To confirm, these aren’t any one specific product and this look has been created using numerous techniques and materials. More like a psudo-indie polish, that’s mixed on the nail and not in a pot and I’m really just having a lot of fun experimenting.
Beyond fun and remarkable amount of detail during the day, thanks to the covering graphics. Stupendous amount of colour pay-off after-hours, thanks to the glow in the dark – however, my waking hours are not thankful. They are slightly more mellow, subdued. I’M SO TIRED, NO TODD, NOT NOW!
So what you think, Darling? Share your experiences with the glow in the dark shenanigans. Have you ever had any awkward bedtime arguments; due to the impracticality of your glow in the dark nails…? I have. It was anything but relaxing before bed. One might even say Stressful. Yes. Stressful, the opposite of Relaxing.
