NOTD: Hidden Skulls

Hello Everyone!

It's finally October, my favorite month of the whole year. I love everything about Autumn, from the cool crisp air, getting to wear cozy sweaters and boots, the smell of the grapes ripening on the vines. I especially love all the changing leaves, and Halloween.

This Halloween season NYC ( New York Color) released a UV glowing topcoat called Demon Glow. Admittedly, I purchased my bottle for the name alone. When I got it home I did a bit of research and discovered it was a glowing topcoat. I have another UV glowing topcoat, and I've tried glow in the dark polishes and I admit I've always been a little disappointed.

Upon learning Demon Glow was a UV glowing topcoat I asked my husband if he'd dig out our black light so I could test it. I did not expect the awesomeness I was about to experience.

Using my Chez Delaney XL K stamping plate and Demon Glow I stamped a skull design over Avon Black As Night.

How freaking awesome is that?! The great thing about this is you can stamp over any color of polish as long as it's not a neon, or white the UV topcoat image will show up as well as it does here over black. I could totally see this being handy for someone that wants to go out and party Halloween night, but works in a conservative office and doesn't have time to redo her manicure.

I must say I am extremely impressed by the way Demon Glow well, glows.
