I used Orly Ridgefiller as my base coat, which right now, I'm not loving - it applied a little streaky. Then I added 1 coat of Essie "Cloud Nine," a milky white - which isn't streaky at all. China Glaze "Ghoulish Glow" had a good glow after 3 coats, but I added a 4th for good measure. Since it dries fast, this wasn't an issue. I finished with 1 coat of Seche Vite.

"Ghoulish Glow" looks like a milky (very slightly green-tone) white on my nails in bright light. It really just looks like sterotypical 80s glow in the dark color - a somewhat mottled, translucent, faint greenish milky white.

Like most 80s glow-in-the-dark items, the polish glows strongly after being in direct light, then its glow quickly diminishes. I took one picture, then I took another less than 30 seconds later, and the glow intensity had already diminished significantly.

I'm still wearing my glow-in-the-dark manicure from Thursday. Today is Saturday, and there is minimal tip wear (and I'm rough on my nails).
Earlier in the week, I had another Halloween mani/pedi.
