Skeletons in the Closet

Like, say, these skeleton nail strips from Incoco that have been sitting in my closet for the past three years? Pretty sure those aren’t the kind of skeletons the expression is referring to, but I’ll take potentially-useless nail strips over repressed secrets any day. ūüėČ

But somehow, wonder of wonders, these nail strips were still in perfect condition, applying cleanly and easily, adhering well and giving off the¬†craziest glow-in-the-dark effect I’ve ever seen in a polish product. ¬†Praise Jack, it’s a Halloween miracle!

This design, long since out of production, is called Bone Rattling, and features cute little black skulls on a glow-in-the-dark white background. ¬†And I needn’t have worried that these nail strips would be dried out – safely tucked away in their unopened package, they were in perfect working order, adhering to my nails neatly, with no rough or raggedy edges. ¬†The chubby, three-toothed skull design is also so adorable – a cute alternative to the more realistic skull designs that tend to dominate at this time of year.

And how about that super cool glow-in-the-dark effect? ¬†It’s bananas! ¬†So bananas, my camera could hardly capture it. ¬†Or maybe it captured…something else? ¬†Those little streaks sure do look like ghosties, do they not? Although, actually, that would mean my hand is haunted, and that never works out well for anyone – just ask Ash (or Anton of Idle Hands, my favourite possessed-limb flick.)

    • Yeah, these turned out really surprisingly well! I was so happy they were still functional, and the glow effect is bonkers – it’s super overcast today and they’re kind of lighting up my livingroom right now!

    • I was so super impressed with the glow-in-the-dark effect – you could see it even in dimly lit rooms. This design is discontinued, but I know they released a few other glow-in-the-dark designs this Halloween, and they’ll probably put them on sale soon. They’ll definitely last until next Halloween!

    • Thanks, these nail strips were pretty great. I’ve wrapped them up tight in the hopes the leftovers won’t dry up and I can use them again, because they were awesome (and discontinued, although Incoco has other glow-in-the-dark designs.)
