A Glow-In-The-Dark Topcoat? Okay, We'll Bite


While there's clearly nothing wrong with a traditional manicure, recently, we've found ourselves entranced with polishes that do a little more than just sit there and look pretty. Holographic, multidimensional, oil slick, sparkly — we're pretty much into all of it. This glow-in-the-dark topcoat from Ciaté was no exception. Using photoluminescence technology, the nifty polish absorbs the energy from light, and then glows as it releases the energy in the dark. The question: Does it actually work?
We had Sharon test out this potentially game-changing product. Check out the video to see what happened, and let us know what you think about nails that glow.
Ciaté Afterglow Glow in the Dark Nail Polish, $15, available at QVC.
