I got some glow in the dark shells. Are they safe?

Quite frankly in the world of land hermit crab care, we don't know for certain. However, I wouldn't recommend them as they may become a nuisance if the hermit crab wants some darkness and its shell keeps glowing.

I've not seen them but I assume they are painted with something that glows? Painted shells are not good for them so I would think these would fit in that same category.
