China Glaze - Zombie Zest

I love Autumn.  Everything about the season is wonderful to me.  The weather is changing, the days are getting shorter.  I think that everyone that gets to experience Fall to the fullest looks forward to the beautiful transformation in the leaves of the trees, and savors the crisp bite in the morning air.

Of course, Fall also means that Halloween is coming.  I'll confess to not being in love with Halloween, but it always brings fun along with it.  And it really wasn't until getting into polish that I realized that I'd been missing out.

The title of this polish alone had me completely hooked before I even knew what color it was.  Zombies have always been a favorite of mine.  Groaning, mindless hoards with a single purpose.  Braaaaaaaaaiiiiiinnnsssssss.....!!!

Wonderful boyfriend just bought us a game called Zombie Fluxx.  It's a great game with endlessly changing rules and gameplay.

It's a really good time!  There's even a card in the deck that demands you moan like a zombie whenever you draw one from the deck.  If someone else catches you not doing it, you have to draw another card! :)

The title of this polish had me thinking a little too in depth, though.  I mean, really...

Did anyone else think about it this way?  Haha!  On to the polish pictures~!!

 This is three coats of Zombie Zest with a top coat of Seche Vite.  I LOVE this color!!  Look at all that shimmer!  Just look at it!

Without a doubt, this color is being worn again.  And again, and again.  I love this ugly-pretty green shade.

Just out of curiosity, I decided to paint up my right hand with both Zombie Zest and Orly's new It's Not Rocket Science.

As you can see in the bottle picture above, it looks like Zombie Zest would be less shimmery.  But can you tell the difference?  I hardly can.  I can't tell at all in person.  In the picture, there's a very subtle difference.  Index and ring fingers were painted with Zombie Zest and middle and pinkie were painted with It's Not Rocket Science.  I really like both, but gosh.  The Orly cost twice as much!  So if you've been thinking about buying It's Not Rocket Science, you should just grab a bottle of Zombie Zest instead. :)

Did you get your ghoulish hands on Zombie Zest?  How much do you love it?

Thanks for reading!


  1. I haven't done my Zombie Zest yet. It's pretty wicked, isn't it?

  2. It is! I think I wore it for four days, which is a pretty unusual relationship between polish and I. :) Only a bit of tip wear as well! It was wonderful!
