Glow in the dark lightning nails are just so cool:
For this design, I used @picturepolish Black, @serumno5 Blue Blazes and Pure Glow Getter, a flat brush from eBay and the Pure Color Glamour #1 from @stylishnailartshop Use a black polish and a light blue (glow in the dark) polish to make a one stroke design from the cuticle to the tip of the nail. Then paint a lightning bolt in the same direction, on top of your one stroke ‘ribbon’, using a blue (glow in the dark) polish, and when that’s dry, go over it again with a white (glow in the dark) polish but try to make thinner lines. Top coat when it’s dry, and you’re done! A video posted by Narmai Nan (@narmai) on
