Zombie Zest NOTWeekend

Hey Kids!
Boy, am I ever glad I bought this polish! China Glaze Zombie Zest was not a planned buy, but more of an afterthought. I got it before the release date, when I picked up Orly Space Cadet and Galaxy Girl. I think I subconsciously chose Zombie Zest over It's Not Rocket Science because of the cool, Halloween inspired name. At any rate, I love it so much I stopped by Sally's to get Orly's version...better cap and more polish for the $. Once there, it didn't take long for China Glaze Mummy May I,  Ick-A-Bod-y and Nina Ultra Pro Love Struck to jump in my basket, along with more boards and thinner.

Not a very good week for my wallet...Just the other day, I wiped out a whole display of my favorite, iridescent, fine glitter top coat- Love My Nails Dazzling. In addition to that, I grabbed 2 of the new Borghese matte glitters- Purple Confetti & Mediterraneo Sea, a few Claw Polishes (for the bottles) and a few beauty incidentals (wtf??? $17.99 for BigSexyHair hairspray?). 2 days, 2 bags, $200  :(

China Glaze Zombie Zest is great on it's own, however, I think layering it over black brings out the duochrome in the flecks. Mani is 2 coats Zombie Zest layered over 1 coat of Color Club Where's The Soiree? I put this on Saturday and aside from melted corners from pulling hot clothes out of the dryer and a bit of tip wear, it still looks great!

Close-up macro...Pretty, isn't it?



















Here's a pretty of a different kind...
Nipple markers I had to wear for my mammogram today.
Being a mammogram tech has to be the best job ever. Large boobies, small boobies, young ones, old ones, sagging, perky, lop-sided...doesn't matter- they're all so beautiful.
My paternal grandmother was a breast cancer survivor, and so is my mother.

Ooh super cool color.  My daughter and I are excitedly awaiting the arrival of ours.  I was bent on getting this color specifically and after seeing your pics, I am assured that I made the right choice.  I was thinking it would be good layered over black too.  Glad to hear your thoughts on it. 
Thanks for sharing.
