The first polish I've chosen for Fug Friday is one of my favorite Halloween polishes of all time, China Glaze Zombie Zest. It is from the 2010 Awakening collection which, as you may know, is probably one of the best Halloween collections that China Glaze has ever done. Zombie Zest has a murky greenish-brown jelly base packed with yellowish-green glass flecks. I feel like the overall effect is a cross between baby poop and zombie flesh. So fugly, yet so awesome at the same time. Whoever thought to cross this dingy, swampy base color with the bright glass flecks is pure genius. Zombie Zest is the perfect color for Halloween and a perfect example of what fug polishes all around the world should aspire to be.
Zombie Zest is a bit on the sheer side, so it took three coats to cover my visible nail line. The overall fugliness of it probably stands out better at two coats so maybe one day when I have nubs, I will wear the polish again and let the base show through a bit more. Overall, the formula on this polish was fantastic. Application was easy, the consistency was great so there was no worry of cuticle flooding or anything like that. Even though this polish came out in 2010, it's still relatively easy to find from online retailers. In fact, there are several places that still have it for around $3 a bottle.
Here's 3 coats of China Glaze Zombie Zest. Enjoy! And don't forget to check out Rach's Fug Friday post over at stuff i (s)watched!
