Weird Wednesday Comparison ~ Green Jelly, Tint or Sheer

Hello Dahlings!

This week I have 3 green jellies that also glow-in-the-dark!

 The line up ~ Emori White 24, Emori Green Light 04,
Nabi Green 04 & Princessa 540-04.
04 must be standard code for neon green?
I got all of these in sets on Amazon,
but only the Emori polishes are currently available.

They may look identical in the bottle, but on the nail all is not the same.
I started with 2 coats of the Emori White for undies as jelly gitds work best
when they have a light background to help reflect the glow.
You can wear them commando, they just may not glow as brightly.
I then added 2 coats of each color, followed by a coat of Seche Vite.

Index ~ Emori Green Light 04
The palest of the 3 at more of a light spring green
than the neon it looks like in the bottle.

Middle~ Nabi Green 04
The color of this one is more saturated than the Emori
& slightly more warm toned then either the Emori or Princessa.

Ring ~ Princessa 540-04
Of the 3 gitd collections, this one is my fav
as the colors are well saturated & lean towards cool tones.

All 3 look a wee bit streaky with the 1st coat,
but smooth out with a 2nd coat.
They can be used as is or for gradients, lead lighting, splodging
& other techniques where sheer, blendable colors are desired.

Time for the glow review portion of this comparison!

The Emori on the left has the softest light
& leans towards a blue green glow.

The Nabi in the middle is the brightest with a neon green glow.

The Princessa on the right is almost as bright as the Nabi
& has a neon green glow.

 I know the Nabi & Princessa gitds aren't available on Amazon right now,
but these brands are available on line
& can sometimes be found in indie beauty supply stores.
They are worth the hunt if you like wearing glow in the dark polish
& want ones that are versatile with a strong glow that has a long shelf life.

The Emori's are currently available on Amazon
& at a reasonable price for the set.
They're just not as pigment saturated
as the other 2 brands & don't glow as strongly.
That said, they aren't a bad polish, just not as good as the other 2.

 If she can't see it, it can't eat her.

Thanks for stopping by!
