It’s that time of year again…time for The Walking Dead! Woot, woot!
I am not the type of girl that likes horror in any form. Haunted houses? No, thank you. Horror movies? Pass. Scary novels? That’s okay, not for me. Blood? Gross. Pop out at me from around the corner? You deserve it if I hit you in the face. Pride and Prejudice…and Zombies? How dare you desecrate that book in that manner. What I’m saying is that I have no idea how my hubs convinced me to give this show a shot, but somehow he did. Throughout the first episode my reactions alternated between “ew,” “this is highly implausible,” “these people seem stupid,” and “that’s freakin’ disgusting, why are we watching this.” The next episode rolled around and hubs asked if I wanted to watch. And somehow I found myself sucked in. Now October 13th is just around the corner and girlfriend is pumped up! So pumped up that she may or may not have bought two Walking Dead themed polishes from Dollish Polish…
Okay, so that “may or may not have” is a definite “did.” Today I have Zombie Flesh and the new, limited edition Walker Bait to show you. Eeep!
First up is the original Dollish Walking Dead polish, Zombie Flesh – “Blend in unnoticed with your local zombie horde with this sickly Gang-Green shade, bursting with small & medium Black hexagons and ultra fine glitters in various shades of green & gold….or is that just some body pieces that fell into the polish? Ewwww! *** WARNING *** This polish does not protect against zombie attacks!” What an alternately gross and lovely description.
Zombie Flesh actually is a fantasmic polish. It’s a murky, olive green shade with the perfect speckling of black, green, and gold glitters. The polish applied easily and the glitters spread out wonderfully without any fishing or placing required. I used three thin coats of Zombie Flesh on its own so that I could get some depth as well as the true polish color. I’m so tempted to buy a back up bottle because this shade is usually sold out.
Now for Dollish’s limited edition beauty, Walker Bait – “…this holographic/duochrome shade has been zombie tested, and Daryl approved! A Deep rich Olive green, with a duochrome finish flashing from a forest green to burnt orange, has a strong scattered holo effect, worthy of any zombie apocalypse.
Kick some zombie ass & take names with this epically awesome polish available now thru October 13th. ” Is it any wonder that I could not resist this polish from that description alone?
Where do I begin with this beauty? I applied two coats of Walker Bait indoors along with base and top coat, and the polish applied like a dream. The formula and application were smooth and even. Indoors, this polish looked like a color-flecked charcoal gray. My reaction was that it was a really pretty polish. First up is a shade photo so that you can get the idea.
Then I stepped out into the sunlight and had my mind blown. The holo effect explodes in the sunlight and I could catch the duochrome charcoal-olive green shift, although my camera struggled to catch it. Droolworthy. You could lure me around with this polish on your nails now and I’m not even a Walker. Click to enlarge for a better idea, although my camera doesn’t do this polish justice (seriously. My camera tried to focus, freaked out a little, and then threw in the towel on me).
Now here’s the catch – this polish is limited edition and stops selling on October 13th, the day of the premiere. Bottles are numbered for this reason; I’d suggest snagging yourself a bottle if you’re tempted.
If you’re a fan of holos, olive green polishes, unique glitters, and/or zombies, go order these beauties before they’re gone! Are you as pumped for polish as me? As pumped for The Walking Dead? As pumped to see Daryl? October 13th is so close!
