Glowin Glitz by Lavish Polish

It's Autism Awareness day! I decided it would be a great day to wear and review this blue polish, "Glowin Glitz" by Lavish Polish, which I purchased for review.

The slogan for Autism Awareness is "Light It Up Blue." And what so you know- this polish is perfect for that.

On Emely's shop website:
"Glowin Glitz" is described as:
Glowin Glitz is a glow in the dark blue jelly with fine blue & silver hex
and silver & teal medium squares.

The silver squares tend to be holographic, from my experience. The polish definitely feels glitzy on the nails, full of sparkle! I used two coats over a white base. The glitters don't seem chunky, but for some reason with only one layer of top coat it wasn't completely smooth, so you might want to use two.

Dry time was normal. The glitters dispersed well. The jelly base isn't as dark blue as I thought by the description, but I really like it.

Oh, and, uh... It glows in the dark. Light it up! It's a glowing bright aqua-esque blue!

Now, normally, I wouldn't jump at the idea of a glowing polish, but I thought Spencer might get a kick out of it, and I also thought that as a reviewer, I could stand to be out of my comfort zone occasionally.

At first, Spencer (29 months old) was creeped out by the polish and screamed when I reached out to touch him. But then he thought it was "cool dude blue fingers!"

I don't know a lot about glowing polishes so I can't really say if it's better or worse than one should expect, but the glow has been noticeable now for 40 minutes as I sit in the dark as Collin finishes his bottle (it's nearly midnight-thirty), though its starting to be dimmer. It was really bright blue at first, but now more a pale blue. It's definitely a unique effect! It's distracting, but not in a bad way, other than Collin would rather play with my fingers in the dark than drink his bottle at first.

Overall, this is a fun and quirky polish. I do in fact like it!

Update: at 4:40am, after being in bed for three and a half hours, when Collin woke, I could still see my nails glowing in the dark room. They aren't bright enough to capture on cell phone cancer, but they are still quite visible to the eye. That's pretty awesome, no? They look a very light blue/white.
