Creative Nail Design Black Light (2005)


In the late ‘80s/early ‘90s, the Club Kids were infamous New York City dance club regulars.  They were known for their outlandish costumes, crazy behavior and rampant drug use.  The best-known Club Kid was Michael Alig, a party promoter.  If you’re interested in more information about Michael Alig and the Club Kids, you definitely need to watch Party Monster with Macaulay Culkin as Alig.  It tells the story of his rise and fall, which culminated in Alig murdering a fellow Club Kid.  It’s a very campy movie, but enjoyable.

Creative Nail Design is best known for their professional lines, such as Shellac, but I have a special place in my heart for their actual polishes.  In 2005, they released the Black Light collection, 3 colors and a glitter topper which glow under a black light.  Unfortunately, I don’t own a black light, so I don’t know if these will still glow.  The Black Light collection is named after infamous New York City clubs:  Dance USA, Danceteria, Limelight and Studio 54.  The first 3 clubs were the ones that the Club Kids frequented.

Dance USA (two coats):  tomato red jelly

Danceteria (three coats):  fuchsia pink crème

Studio 54 (three coats):  bright purple crème

Limelight is a glitter topper and contains blue-to-green color shifting flakes.

If you’re interested in these polishes, they’re all still available on Head2Toe Beauty.
