Kabocha is fairly sheer. This photo shows four coats of it alone. Thankfully the formula is on the thin side, so four coats doesn't feel or look like a lot on the nail. It dries semi matte but can be made shiny with the addition of topcoat.
Here's a photo of the glow! Since the base is orange, the color of the glow is a bit altered. It's almost...a dusty green glow? I'm not sure how to best describe it. The glow effect is visible but not ultra strong. This is also probably due to the orange base (since glows work better when combined with lighter colors).
Here I've shown two coats of Kabocha over white. If you don't want your nail line to show, or you want to use less coats, you can layer! I had to do some post processing to correct the color of this one, and it's still not quite right. It's a bit darker than what I've been able to show here.
Layering the polish over a light color also makes the glow brighter.
Neko is basically my dream polish. It's a black glitter topper with shreds and various small shapes of glitters. This is one coat of Neko (plus a bit of spot filling) over Kabocha layered over white. I found that it applied really easily. It's super dramatic and fabulous.
Neko is also great for blocking out cool glow in the dark patterns. :)
