Serum No. 5 Flashing Lights and Cuticle Serum Review

Press Sample

Today I have a one-of-a-kind polish that I have not seen from any other brand. Flashing Lights is a light reflective polish that is crazy loud under flash but simple and delicate in normal lighting. Along with Flashing Lights, I was able to try out Serum No. 5 Cuticle Serum and White Tea Lime Ginger sugar scrub.  So check out this polish that will be perfect for Halloween trick-or-treating or a night out!



Serum No. 5 Flashing Lights
Flashing Lights is a very unique polish. For the polish to be light reflective, you must only use one coat over your nails and no top coat. This reveals a delicate look in the daylight, but you will have some vnl (visible nail line) as you can easily see my nails. I will probably try to remove some of my staining when wearing this again. It's great for a fun night out!

I then tried a little experiment. On my index nail, I used OPI This Gown Needs a Crown and topped it with one coat of Serum No. 5 Flashing Lights. On my ring finger, I did three coats of Flashing Lights on its own. My thumb, middle, and pinky had one coat of Flashing Lights. You can see they look nice in normal outdoor sun, but with flash, Flashing Lights absolutely does not work. This polish will only react when it is one coat over the bare nail.

The cuticle serum comes in a handy pen-style dispenser. It's super easy to use the cuticle oil this way as you can hold the dispenser like a paint brush and simply brush it on. The brush is very soft too. Simple twist up the bottom to dispense as much as you need. The scent is very light and delicate.

I also got the chance to try the White Tea Ginger Lime sugar scrub. I love the adorable heart mold too. I got almost three uses out of this sample, but that is because my first use, I used it as a solid scrub. The second use, the heart began to crumble and I used it as a normal sugar scrub. The smell is divine and it was moisturizing and removed dead skin. It left my skin very soft. I don't see this in the shop, but I hope it is available soon!  You can even see the lime zest! EDIT: Serum No. 5 says these sugar scrub cubes will be out in November or December! So stay tuned!
