Walker Bait + If I Were a Zombie, I'd Eat You The Most

Hai-o!
Pretty obvious that I did this mani waaaay back in October for Halloween, I mean, I have the square nails and everything (which I really miss, but can't have due to work). I've had the pictures ready and edited, but only just typing up the post, I know, I'm terrible!


I started with two coats of Dollish Polish's 'Walker Bait', which is a very coveted polish amongst many in the polish-verse. I do have to say, it is not one of my faves, although I can see why so many wanted it. 

It was fully opaque with the two thin coats that I applied, and the consistency was the same as many holographic polishes-slightly on the thicker side. It dried as a very dark silver, which headed towards dark green, and had a lovely linear holographic effect which makes it more unique! 

I however, did not love this polish on its' own (which I don't think I've ever said about a Dollish) and therefore decided it needed some glitter to spruce it up. I do have to say that it is a great 'graveyard' polish, and was very appropriate for Halloween, when I originally did this mani.

One thin coat of Glisten and Glow (HK Girl) 'Stuck on Blu! Basecoat' - £6.55 from Rainbow Connection
- Two coats of Dollish Polish 'Walker Bait' - $5/10 from Dollish Polish
- One coat of Dollish Polish 'If I Were a Zombie, I'd Eat You The Most' - $5/10 from Dollish Polish
- One coat of Glisten and Glow (HK Girl) 'Fast Drying a Super Shiny Clear Topcoat' - £6.55 from Rainbow Connection  

I then covered it with 2 very thin coats of Dollish's 'If I Were a Zombie, I'd Eat You The Most', which is a very long name for a polish, but definitely appropriate for the glitter effect it leaves. I loved the subtlety of this glitter over the top of Walker Bait and thought it definitely gave it more oomph, you can't really tell from the pictures, but the polish is made up of fine glitters in different shapes, that are 'Zombie colours'; black, green, etc. and on top of Walker Bait, I thought it made my nails look like textured Zombie flesh, which was great as a Halloween mani! I love the holographic glitters that shined differently colours when the light hit.

Usually when I use glitter polishes, I only apply one coat so that the glitter applies sparingly, however, with this look, I wanted more glitter, and better coverage, so I therefore decided to apply an extra thin coat so that the fine glitters would cover more and stand out better.
