What makes a Glow in the Dark Nail Polish Design work?
Before we get in some examples of nail polish designs, let’s look at some of the fundamental characteristics of good glow in the dark designs and why they work to capture the eye of onlookers.
Since you are only really working with two tones (glowing green and black), you will have to look at designs that work well with two colors only. Also since on all occasions you will have to showcase the designs in the dark, you can’t have too much detail in the pattern. This really leaves good contrasting patterns like zig zags and designs that cross over several nails.
Another way to utilize the glowing features is to have the glowing polish gradually fade. This gives what we call a gradient effect and can produce really stunning results. Try using a complementing color that will look good when you have the nails in daylight or well lit areas.
Studs or Gems
Another common feature in glow in the dark designs are the use of gems or studs. Not only does it provide a great contrast against the glowing polish, it also looks great in naturally lit areas as nail art – giving great effect for both night and day showcasing.
