Halloween Week: OPI Pair'em Scare'em

This is my second time around swatching the OPI Pair'em Scare'em set that I received from the girls at Glambo. Earlier this week I could not get a photo of the glow in the dark effect no matter how hard I tried. I finally found a nice tutorial that is meant for photographing glow in the dark polymer clay, but it worked perfectly for me.

This is three coats of Zom-Body to Love with no top coat. It is very sheer with visible tiny glow in the dark particles. It would probably work well layered over a nice lime color, but since I was planning to cover it with a shatter, I didn't bother. Application was very nice with this one.

UPDATE: I forgot to mention that to get a good glow you have to "charge" it by holding it under direct light otherwise the glow is pretty faint...

Lights out time... fun!

Topped with Black Shatter, which cracked very well even with my rather thick coat on the middle finger...
(Oops, looking at these photos I just realized that I forgot to apply a top coat. Oh well, I'm too lazy now :P)

Lights out time again... look at it glow! I must be getting better at photographing it :D
