Atomic Peach is a special effect, glow in the dark polish. It is described as a "peachy nude [creme] with subtle shimmer". I feel like when you're looking for a peach polish they always seem too orange or too pink, this one is spot on PEACH. I really like the gold shimmer it has. In the dark this polish glows a bright green. Serum No. 5 is always spot on with her GITD polishes. They glow bright and do not take long to charge.

This one was a little on the balding side and took 4 coats to reach full opacity. Due to the 4 coats it had an okay dry time. The application was smooth and presented no issues (besides the balding).

Pink Lantern is another glow in the dark polish, only this one is a limited edition! Pink Lantern is only available during the month of October for breast cancer awareness month - so if you like this polish... you better go buy it! This polish is a mash up between BCA month and Halloween with it's bright orange glow.  The pink is a bubble gum shade in a creme finish.

It took 3 coats for opacity with Pink Lantern. It had an okay dry time, but dried quicker than Atomic Peach. It had a great, smooth application and I didn't run into any balding issues. By the way, I wore this on my toes for a week or 2, I didn't want to take it off haha it was fun coming in from checking the mail and having orange GITD toes :P

Acai of Relief is my favorite of today's 3. It is a deep colored, strong duochrome polish. This polish flashes different shades of blue and purple and looks different at any angle. It's a lot of fun and I'm a big fan of strong, reactive duochromes.

I did 3 coats of Acai of Relief. It was sheer with the 1st coat but builds up better than I thought it would! If you prefer, layering it over a dark color would also work too :] I didn't have any issues with the application and the dry time was perfect.

These are all a part of Serum No. 5's Fall/Winter Collection. You can find them on sale in her shop now! Don't forget, Pink Lantern is LE and once it's gone, it's gone.
