  • Step 1

    Crack your glow stick until it cannot crack anymore. Then, take the glow stick and cut the bottom and top with scissors. Each cut should be about a centimeter away from the tips of the stick.

  • Step 2

    Quickly place the glow stick over the opened bottle of clear nail polish, and let the juices leak out until the glow stick is empty. If the juices aren't coming out of the glow stick well enough, you can blow on the top of it. Make sure the juices don't get on your lips though.

  • Step 3

    Put on cap, Shake, and apply to nails!

  • Step 4

    enjoy!

Make sure you use glow sticks with strontium aluminate, which is generally regarded as safe. Other substances can be toxic. More info on glow sticks here: <a href="http://www.glowinthedarkproducts.net/going-to-party-buy-some-glow-sticks/">link</a>

I tried this today and the glow does NOT last. I used 2 pink glow sticks from dollar tree and it wore off
