Serum No. 5 - Day Glow

Today I have another Serum No. 5 lacquer to share with you: Day Glow. Day Glow is the most popular lacquer in the Serum lineup -- and it's not hard to understand why! This glow in the dark polish will knock your socks off!

By day, it is an unassuming pale yellow with hints of green. Application was a bit tricky for me; I thinned my bottle out a bit and still had to go slow when applying. However, I did only need two coats for the photo below! Day Glow dries quickly and matte, almost with a bit of grain to it, and smooths out flawlessly with topcoat.


This next photo was taken just by shutting off the lamp that I use with my lightbox. I didn't hold it up to the lamp directly to charge it like I do with most glow polishes, and there is still ambient room light coming into this shot. It's essentially a dusk or shade type situation, and it's already glowin'! You can see where I'm going with this right...?


Then I walked down the hall a bit further and stuck my hand into my dark office from the doorway. The hallway lights were still on, so you can see my fingers are lit up a bit as well. The glow was insane!


Finally, I did a photo of Day Glow in my usual glow in the dark polish setup -- a pitch black room. The glow was crazy, and it just lasted and lasted... It didn't fade out nearly as quickly as most of the other glow polishes I've tried. It's so strong and bright that it almost seems to have overexposed the shot!


I was so entertained that I even made a video of my floating fingers.


Day Glow is sold in the Serum No. 5 Etsy shop and Mei Mei's Signatures. It's very popular, so it's out of stock now, but there will be a restock on Monday! Be sure to like Serum No. 5 on Facebook and follow on Tumblr to keep up with restock information. 20% of all Serum profits go to charity.

In related news, Serum No. 5 is taking a poll on Facebook to help decide on a new, upcoming glow in the dark shade! Go sound off if you have a chance!

  19. I got this today and I can only get a few streaks in my bottle to glow (after 15 min under my Ott Light and intense shaking) Guess I'll have to try it on to test it.

    1. I'm totally late to the game here, but I got this as well and wasn't happy with it. I needed about four coats and it still looked uneven, and then it barely glows even after charging for a long time. I see all of these blogs have amazing photos of it, but I swear they're sending a better version to them...

  21. Hi Parker!

    Wished I saw this much earlier, but this bottle has a ridiculous glow and if yours doesn't, I'll be happy to fix it! Can you send me an email to hello@serumno5.com? Thanks!

  22. Hi Rachel!

    I'm sorry I didn't see this sooner to address this. I'm definitely not sending better bottles to bloggers :) Glow pigments can be fickle and your bottle should definitely glow like in the pictures (it can take a couple coats though, but over white should minimize that). If you can send me an email at hello@serumno5.com, I'd be happy to fix this for you!
