Serum No. 5 Fall 2016 Collection Swatches & Review


Hi guys! Today I have the brand new FW16 Collection from Serum No. 5 to share with you! This collection is made up of 6 polishes that all glow in the dark. There is a nice mix of finishes, from cremes to shimmers, glitters and holos. These will be available starting tomorrow! Check out the swatches after the jump.


All of the photos in this post are shown with top coat. Because of the glow pigment these polishes dry down dull with a touch of texture. I usually use 2 coats of top coat to smooth them out and shine them up!

Beets Don't Kale My Vibe is a dark berry toned red creme that glows blue in the dark.  The formula was ok, it was a good consistency but a little bit sheer and patchy. I used 3 coats to even it out and get it opaque.



Fifty Shades of Earl Grey is a dusty blue with a subtle holo, this glows aqua blue in the dark. The holo in this is subtle but not so subtle that you can't see it. The formula was great, it was a good consistency and it had great opacity. I used 2 coats for my photos.



I Love You A Latte is a light yellow toned beige with gold microglitter/shimmer, this glows green in the dark. The shimmer is a little bit more noticeable in real life than it shows in photos. The formula was great, it was a good consistency and easy to apply with great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.




Let's Avocuddle is a medium green with holographic micro glitter, this glows light green in the dark. This was my favorite in the dark...the glow is super strong...I could even see it glowing in the low light when I was walking down the hallway in my house. This is a bit of a jelly so its sheer but its easy to apply and it builds up easily. I used 3 coats for the photos below.



Plum Luck is a plum holo that glows green in the dark. The holo in this one is really gorgeous, out in the sun its a nice strong holo. The formula was good, it was a good consistency with fantastic opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.



Pumpkin Spice Girls is an orange base with gold micro glitter, this glows yellow in the dark. This one was a little disappointing for me, mostly because the micro glitter got eaten up by the base...I was hoping it would be more noticeable on the nail. The formula was good otherwise, it was easy to apply and had great opacity. I used 2 coats for the photos below.





The FW16 Collection from Serum No. 5 will be available starting 10/14/16 at Noon PST at http://serumno5.com

  1. Finally, colors from Serum No 5 that I can actually use. Ordinarily, their colors are horrible. I really like the Plum swatch. The last nail polish I purchased from Serum No 5 was a bad batch, it turned out to be very gloopy and thick. I had to return it back to the manufacturer.

  2. Nice swatches, as always, thank you. :)
    Doesn't "Fifty Shades of Earl Grey" look a lot like "Zoya Skylar"? What do you think?
