The fashion industry has been collectively experiencing some serious 90s nostalgia for a while now. And the launch of a new UV-glow nail polish would seem to indicate that rave fashion is on its way back--along with grunge, hip-hop logo-mania, and Angela Chase's fave lipstick.

Illamasqua, the UK beauty brand known for innovative and often peculiar color palettes (and this amazing speckled polish), just released a summer makeup collection that includes polishes that glow in UV light. Yes, you can now turn your fingertips into club-worthy glow sticks.

There are three colors--Omen, Ouija, and Seance--which glow under black light, even if you use a regular top coat over them. There's also a UV top coat (called Geist) in the collection, which will make your plain old boring nail polish glow.

The UV top coat is perfect for covert nail art, too. Paint designs of your choice on top of your staid, office-appropriate shell pink mani, and when you hit the club (or its modern-day black light equivalent, SoulCycle) later that day--instant nail art! (See examples from Illamasqua’s nail art ambassador, Fleury Rose, below.)

The polishes go for $17.00 each and you can snag them at Sephora starting April 30.
