Review: Born Pretty Store Luminous Polish

I've got a couple of great polishes for you today...
CH Nail Luminous Polish #12 & #5 from Born Pretty Store!


These two polishes were sent to me for review, and I have to say I'm very impressed with them...



For starters the brush is awesome, it's shorter than most polish brushes and wider which made it very easy for application. Both polishes also dry VERY quickly which made it easy to apply multiple coats (which is often needed for glow polishes).

I decided to do a comparison with China Glaze Ghoulish Glow:
For the record, #05 is the pale orange and #12 is the pink



As expected the polishes glow much better over a white base. I forgot to add that Ghoulish Glow is two coats over a white base as well. When I paint with Ghoulish Glow I usually do 3 or 4 coats to get that streaky-ness to go away, I was impressed that two coats of the other two was plenty. The BPS polishes also dried much faster so painting multiple coats was easier than with Ghoulish Glow.

Charging the two polishes before photographing took longer than GG and they weren't quite as bright at first. However, they held the charge much longer. Typically when photographing Ghoulish Glow I have to recharge the polish between each photo, but after a few minutes the CH polishes were still glowing strong...



My favourite of the two is #12 (pink) I love how it actually glows pink instead of green or blue :)

So I did a full pink manicure...


In regular light it is a gorgeous hot pink, and it glows pink in the dark... you can't beat it :) This is two coats over white, and I stamped with a fauxnad plate and Finger Paints Black Expressionism. 

Each glow polish retails for $4.99 and you can find them at the following links...
