Carefully cut your glow stick in half with sharp scissors. Be careful not to spill any of the liquid out.

Squeeze the glowing contents of the glow stick into your nail polish. If you're having trouble getting it all out, you can also cut the top end of the glow stick to allow the liquid to flow down more easily.

Step 4: Shake it up!

Thoroughly mix your nail polish with the glowing solution by giving your nail polish bottle a quick shake. Make sure the glow is evenly distributed through the polish.

Step 5: Apply your new glow-in-the-dark polish

Apply your newly mixed glow nail polish to your nails. If you are using a dark base like I am, you'll probably need 3 to 4 coats to get a good glow. If you're using a lighter color base like white or a neon color, 2 to 3 coats of polish should be enough. You should see a little bit of the glow in your nail polish almost immediately. Your nail polish may take a little longer to dry than usual, so try to apply it in thin layers.

Step 6: Get in the dark
