Today I have for you my all time favorite Halloween nail polish. Please welcome China Glaze Zombie Zest! It was released as one of three polishes in the Awakening collection back in 2010, which probably is the best Halloween collection ever for me! Zombie Zest stands out for me because it is a glass fleck polish and it is one of those unique ugly, yet pretty colors. Think Butter London's Wallis or China Glaze's Trendsetter. The colors are weird, but that is why I like them so much :) Let's have a look at Zombie Zest now!
Zombie Zest is a mossy green with tinges of yellow to it. The glass flecks sparkle in the same yellow-tinged green and a pretty intense emerald green at extreme angles. The base itself is a bit sheer so I had to apply three coats to get it opaque. But that is fine, because it dried quick and smooth. I finished it off with one coat of INM Out The Door and I was good to go. Also, this wore really well on me! No cracks or chips after three days, just a teeny-tiny bit of tip wear.
Last year's China Glaze Halloween collection called Haunting did not really wow me, so I don't own any of these polishes. I am however looking forward to trying some of their recent Halloween collection called Wicked. The swatches I have seen so far look promising.
What is your favorite Halloween polish? Or are you rather avoiding such "weird" colors? Let me know!
Have a great Saturday,<3 Sabine
