Radioactive

I hope everyone is enjoying their Thursday! I have what I consider an interesting layering combination to show you today. 


Radioactive nails! Or at least I see them as radioactive. My mom commented that they looked mossy and spring like. I did a bit of layering to get this effect.






I started off with one coat of Wet n Wild Nocturnal, next a coat of Funky Fingers Stage Dive, and finally two coats of Nfu-Oh NFU JS18. Nocturnal is an almost black blue jelly. It applied opaque in just one coat. Stage Dive is great glitter with different sizes of silver hex glitter. NFU JS18 is a sheer jelly with amazing application. I have never worn it alone, so I'm not quite sure how many coats it takes for opacity.

Nocturnal is part of Wet n Wild's Craze line, which has been discontinued. As with any discontinued line or collection, there was usually bottles to be found online. If you're lucky, you might be able to purchase them in a set from a store that still has some in stock. I got mine in a set of six for four dollars at Dollar General during Christmas time. Funky Fingers retail for $2 or 3/$5 at Five Below. Stage Dive is part of their Heavy Metal Collection, so I'm honestly unsure if its still available in store since there are no Five Below stores located near me (if anyone knows, please let me know so I have accurate info here). Nfu-Oh retail for $12.50 from Fabulous Street, the distributor for that brand in the USA.

  2. This is so unique! I really like the combo of nocturnal and stage dive! I never would've guessed that was what was under the nfu oh, hah! You should throw some glow on the dark on top and then it'd be super radioactive looking lol

    1. Thank you! From first looking at it, I don't think anyone would guess dark blue was lying beneath that green. Glow in the dark would be fun! :)
