Valentines Pt. III... Can you say NEON?!

Hello again lovelies!

I was thinking how bright my nails are.. would they glow under UV? 
Well being the Darkling that I am - I can answer that for you right away as I have UV and actinic lighting in my bedroom!

I didn't take any under UV as that is a menace to photograph, not to mention I would have to stand very precariously on the back of the couch so you'll have to settle for actinic! [Actinic lighting is often seen in aquariums or in some seedy nightclub bathrooms - this is that really blue light that reacts like blacklight - this is because it emits a light spectrum from blue to UV! :) ]


I wanted to play with the UV and I thought it would be annoying if i set up the actinic and it didn't glow! So I added to my nails in case - this way if the pink wasn't UV then I would still have something to show you!
I used Stargazer's Nail Art Pen in UV white - under UV this usually glows like a white shirt in a club - but the pink overpowered it a bit!

I'm sorry for the terrible pictures - actinic light is really hard to photograph under - especially when you're holding the camera with the wrong hand!

Also, please excuse me for not doing any clean up at all today, I was too excited to show you everything!
