Magic Bakery ✨

I'm back again! Not for good, but temporarily at least.
Today, I have another really fun design to share with you. I called this "magic bakery", because this design glows in the dark! (I need a lot more glow in the dark stuff - I'm getting bored by the same 6 colors over again)

This was inspired by another trip to my favorite vegan bakery. Today, she's hosting another baker and their theme for the day is inspired by blooming flowers, among other things. So I thought I'd do another design dedicated to her! Check out my cupcake nail art if you haven't already! (I must really have a sweet tooth this year - this is my third candy-inspired design this year!)

I started out with the gradient over a white base - I believe this amplified the glow of the finished product! Then, I freehanded all the rest on top of it. I used a glow in the dark topcoat to make the plate and coffee cup glow, as well as the vase (which was actually supposed to be a white bucket, but it doesn't really look like it).

I also incorporated some (not very) hidden words on my ring finger and pinky. You can see them quite clearly in the picture, but I simply didn't have a closer match to the green I used.

Here are all the colors I used (and there are a lot - hope I didn't miss any!):

  • Serum No. 5 - Krypton-Brite (neon green, glows in the dark)
  • white
  • essence - grey zone (light grey)
  • LOOK - street (medium grey)
  • black
  • Serum No. 5 - Orange You Sunny (orange, glows in the dark)
  • dance legend - Termo Trio 1 (purple thermal)
  • Serum No. 5 - Indi-glo (sapphire blue, glows in the dark)
  • Serum No. 5 - I Gleam In Pink (neon pink, glows in the dark)
  • OPI - Skull and Glossbones (off-white/bone)
  • China Glaze - Kalahari Kiss (sand)
  • China Glaze - Mahogany Magic (chocolate brown)
  • China Glaze - Drink Up Witches (neon green)
  • China Glaze - Happy Go Lucky (yellow)
