Does It Stamp? ~ Glow In The Dark Polishes!

Hello Dahlings!
One could say that I've become a wee bit obsessive over glow in the dark polish of late...and one would be correct! One of my earliest polish buys was a Halloween gitd I bought in October of 1982. Yes, that's da year nineteen hundred eighty two. LOL I was in 9th grade & rather punky at da time. Who am I trying to kid? I'm still punky, tho' these days I'm also chunky! LMBBO
Anywho, with all da great gitd polishes I discovered this fall I though to see if any of them could be used for stamping...
 This is Born Pretty Store BK brand Hello Kitty gitd #'s 27 & 17. In general, this line of polishes don't glow very well, but these 2 did ok & passed my stamping test...
 ...& they do show up under black light! Especially 17. It was da best gitd of the bunch to start with & now I have another use for it.
 Blue Cross Pumpkins. I tried all the colors of these I have (pink, orange, white, white w/glitter, blue, green, yellow & a pale green w/glitter & these three stamped da best. Da others failed my basic test of showing up over black tho' they work ok over white polish.
 These showed up very well under da black light!
 I found these 3 Republic Nail gitds in a set at TJ Maxx for $5. I'd have bough them even if they hadn't been gitd cuz da colors are very me. Both da plumy purple & pink have micro glitter in them & da silver is a nice foil...
 ...and they glow very nicely under black light!
 Black Heart Beauty Major Ranger, China Glaze Ghoulish Glow, Rubie's GITD (from the Spirit Halloween store) & Sinful Colors GITD. (Da BEST gitd I've found so far!)
Oh yeah, they glow!
I tried moving da testing pebbles to da sink to show them glowing in actual darkness, but getting them moved & then getting a pic before the glow faded too much was not working out. Good thing I got a black light as it's a good way to test polish, show gitd nails & get pics with out having to deal with trying to take said pics in da dark. 
Tomorrow I'll show you what I did with what I learned from this round of testing.
Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Can't wait to see what you did! I never thought to stamp with GITD. May have to try this for a lighted Christmas tree?

    1. You're giving me ideas...again! I think either stamping or filling in lil xmas lights with gitd would be too cute.

  2. Smart to use the black rock. :)

    1. Thanks, but this stroke of genius wasn't mine. I really wish I could remember which blog I saw it on so I could give them well deserved credit!

  3. Ooooh I love the I love Nail Polish Birefringence Holo and would love to see more holo swatches as you make them look GREAT! Are those your natural nails? Love your kitties, have 4 myself. :)

    1. More holos, got it! Thanks. Yes, they are my own nails. I have five cats myself. Makes for lots of entertainment with that many. lol
