Hello nail art enthusiasts! I am doing a swatch and review of the UR Sugar Neon Fluorescent Spider Gels. They are spider gels that glow in the dark. They are a gel formula so they do need to be cured in a UV/LED lamp. Since they glow in the dark, these aren’t just your standard spider gel and makes things a little funner to create looks with! We carry these in our store for $3.49 a piece. Keep reading to see my thoughts on these spider gels.
So for all of the colors, I swatched them over a black and white gel base. I used a small dotting tool to apply the spider gel. None of swatches are top coated. All of the colors are shown glowing in the dark at the end of the review.
First up is yellow and green. In the daylight, the yellow is a bright yellow over the white base, and over the black it takes on a greenish tinge. The green is a bright primary green over the white base, and over black it is a little darker. Both colors in the dark look like a highlighter yellow with a green tint over both the black and white base. In fact, in the dark you can’t tell the difference between the yellow gel or the green gel.
Second up is blue and orange. In the daylight, the blue is a darker primary blue over the white base, and over the black, I could barely see it. In the dark, it’s a bright light blue and over the white base and a light teal over the black. In the daylight, the orange is a bright primary orange over the white, and over the black it’s still bright but a little darker. In the dark, it is a bright orange over both the black and white base.
Third up is indigo and hot pink. In the daylight, the indigo is a dark blue-purple over the white base, and over the black, I could barely see it. In the dark, it’s a darker blue/teal than the blue gel was. It looks about the same over both black and white base. In the daylight, the hot pink is hot pink over the white base, and takes on a little more red over the black base. In the dark, it’s hot pink over both the black and the white base.
Last up is purple and red. In the daylight, the purple is a dark royal purple over the white base, and over black it is darker but you can still see it. In the dark, it’s light lilac over both black and white base. As it loses its “glow in the dark” effect, the color fades to a peachy color. In the daylight, the red is a primary red over the white base, and over black it’s a little darker. In the dark, it’s a bright reddish-orange over both the black and white base.
I put all of the nail tips in a lid to put them in my nail lamp. It is the quickest way to activate the glow in the dark effect. The first picture is of the nail tips before going in. The second picture is of the tips in the lamp while curing. The third picture is just after the lights went off and the glow from the nails is bouncing off of the top of the lamp. The final picture is just after I pulled the tips from the lamp. All of the lights in my room were off when I took this picture and the glow was pretty bright.
These are some pretty neat gels. A few of the colors are harder to see over a black base, but you’re getting them because they glow in the dark right!? Each pot is 7ml and all of the gels had the typical spider gel consistency. They cured in 30 seconds in my led nail lamp. Pick up your favorite colors to create some glowing looks!
