OPI Glow-Ink in the Dark


OPI Glow-Ink in the Dark

I am not entirely sure if this was a big waste of money or not. On one hand, interesting color (a dusty shade of blue) with an interesting finish (satiny, with glow in the dark particles that look like shimmer but are more like speckles). On the other hand, super sheer: six coats is pictured above. SIX. And I spy with my little eye... VNL. It also wasn't some super thin polish that you can layer until the cows come home. Kinda goopy. And it didn't really glow for all that long in the dark (I tried taking a picture but was wholly unsuccessful). Would've been worth it if I paid etailer prices but I paid retail (+ shipping) for this. So... kinda not worth it.

Where did you get this one?I'm looking for it everywhere but since I'm an intrnational I can't seem to find it anywhere!I really like the colour did you try to layer it over something else?I et it would look good over another blue!

Wow, I actually really like this. Where did you get it?

aww flinty, retail + shipping for VNL and SIX frakkin' layers? I feel you. Sorry. {{hugs}} otoh, it's a pretty color. Not enough, eh?

Thriszha: happy to help. :)

Katie + gildedangel: haircarechoices.net. I haven't tried layering this over anything yet but I should definitely try it. I dunno why but I feel like this SHOULD be opaque on its own, as opposed to some jelly glitter polishes that seem to be "made" for layering. :)

Duffi: It's gotta be a special type of awesome if I'm going to pay retail for things. It's a very pretty color but kinda not worth the trouble of trying to achieve it. Maybe it'd be easier if I thinned it out.

I've been lemming this one for so long, but six coats is a lil too much...especially with the goopy formula. :( It's a really pretty polish though, with the shimmer and satiny finish! : )
Maybe I'll just get the mini set with the tattoos! Teeheehee! :D

Yeah, this was my exact experience with this. I wasn't happy about it, even tried to layer it over something else, that ended up looking like crud.

That is a nice looking color. I almost ordered it and now I'm glad I didn't. It's so pretty on you. Darn, why can't they make something opaque.
