Glowing Pumpkin Fun

Oh, my goodness!  I love a good treat and only a fun, harmless trick.  I got a little of both with these polishes.

These two are glow-in-the-dark polishes.  I’ve had them for several years.  Truly, the polishes barely glow but I love these stinkin’ lil’ pumpkins.

 Sally’s had some Savvy color collections this summer and the colors were just yummy!  However, what’s in the bottle does NOT translate onto the nail.  I knew that, since that seems to be the Savvy way.  I’m really glad that I didn’t pay pull price for this one.  It’s ‘Fairy Twinkle’ I have on here.  {They had a ‘Fairy Tinkle’ but it was a terrible yellow; not appealing!  😉 }  Very sheer and something I wouldn’t hesitate to let a young child wear.

I knew better than to get my hopes up but, crap!  Look how pretty this bright pastel pink is with the gold micro-glitter!  It still looked very ‘gossamer’ on my nails though.

The Savvy summer collections had shimmers too.  I got this one, NOT on sale.  I couldn’t resist this color…

‘Orange You Happy’ did make me happy.  I feel it’s a summer orange but, it does work well for Halloween too.  I like the yellow color veins through this.

After 3 coats, this color is almost opaque.  Very high shine.

So, with the couple of pumpkins I showed at the opened of this post, I think you see where I’m heading.

‘Fairy Twinkle’ got a hint of some iridescent sparkles from the pink pumpkin polish.  The iridescent color just blended into the faint pink.

It didn’t change the ‘Orange You Happy’ much either, save for giving iridescent sparkles.  Faint but there.

You might wonder if these pumpkin colors really do glow.  I went to my friend’s house with these so I could paint her 8 year-old daugther’s nails.  Just as I had done, one hand was orange, the other pink.  She held them up to the window for a bit, then we ran into the laundry room, lights out and they gave off a hint of glow.  Enough to put a smile on a little girl’s face.  Her almost 4 year old brother wanted his nails painted so bad.  But his mommy didn’t want a little boy to have polish one.  I talked her into letting me put orange on  just one toe nail.  We ran into the laundry room and he was as pleased as punch to have one glowing toe.

As far as the Savvy polishes, I’m going to keep ‘Orange You Happy’ because I am happy with it.  ‘Fairy Twinkle’ will be tested as an overlay someday or, go into a box for later frankens.

One last thing: my latest giveaway ends tonight at 10 PM, EST.  Check it out and enter!!!
