Are you ready for more awesome from Anne Kathleen? This might be the awesomest awesome that ever lived in Awesometown. I've been hinting and teasing about these for nearly a week...maybe I should just get on with it?
Or maybe not. We have some time to kill here. I feel like this post, more than any previous, has taught me some things. I made a list.
- I like shiny things even better when they glow in the dark.
- I am not too old to play with flash lights. Especially black lights.
- My house isn't as dirty as I thought
- Cats are scary under a black light.
- I am not as good at cleaning up manicures as I thought I was.
(bear with me on this post. My camera was on a tripod for the glow-in-the-dark shots, so I had to give myself over completely to the upside down pose. I actually don't hate it, and it is far more comfortable. Opinions & critiques are welcome in the comments.)
Ok, really. before we begin I have some promises to make. Well, mostly one. I promise that there is no editing of any kind going on here. I haven't gotten crafty with the lighting or photoshop. I will send you copies of the originals if you want or tell you the exact settings I used, just drop me a line. I will say that a remote and tripod are indispensable here. These polishes will glow normally if you charge them with a 60w or higher bulb. I used a little black light flashlight because ain't nobody got time for that.
Tl;dr the glow is legit. No shenanigans needed.

This one is a true-red jelly packed with glitter. It is pretty neat...even without its secret. I would wear the shit out of this color...I do love a good vintage red. The glow is softer than the others, but no less amazing. Two coats + topper and you are G2G, which is fabulous. I need a car in this color please.
A lovely pumpkin orange jelly drowning a metric ton of glitter. Another two coater, and I'm in love. Normally, I have a hard time wearing orange. I LOVE it, but it doesn't love me back. WHY ORANGE?! WHY DON'T YOU LOVE ME?! Ahem...yes. Orange and glowy. Yes darlings.
A proper, bright, glowing lemon yellow jelly that is shoved full of glitter. Who doesn't want this? Honestly, I figured that the yellow would be my least favorite...until I put it on. Now I am obsessed, and it is going right back on as soon as I am done with the swatchathon. Two coats + topper below, and everyone is happy. Also, please ignore how messy I am. I had no idea until shit started glowing.
I love this. LOVE. St. Patrick's Day, watch out. This is a super bright kelly green and silvery glitter jelly-ish polish. Like all the others, I only needed two coats.
Cobalt, glowmagic, and glitter. How can anything involving all three of those things be bad? HOW?! It can't. I love this color...maybe my opinion on blues is changing as I get older? That would be weird, for sure. Again, I only needed two coats for complete coverage here, and one layer of Seche Vite made it look like a tiny blue universe on my fingertips.
You may notice that I am missing a color. My bottle got a little...weird. I'm waiting for a new one so I can finish the rainbow. Until then, check out the shop (if you are reading this on BlackCyberMondayFriday then there is still a sale going on).
FYI: AnneKathleen.com will be closed from 17 December until 15 January for the holidays. The girl deserves a break, but lets make her work for it a little?
