China Glaze Zombie Zest Nail Polish and Revlon's Va Va Violet Lipstick

I went to Sally's the other day (rare for me) and saw the Halloween China Glaze colors and of course had to get one. I was there to get purple, but couldn't resist Zombie Zest! Since the theme colors of my costume are green and purple, I figured why not put them together? The result wasn't exactly how I pictured, but it's really pretty! The purple I used is China Glaze "Grape Juice."
The mixture of the two kind of looks brownish in these pictures, but it's not at all. It's sort of a dark gold but you can definitely see the green glitter from Zombie Zest. I love it!

I was on the hunt for some purple lipstick as well. (This is all for my Halloween costume.) I would have just ordered from Fyrinnae or Morgana, but I waited too late and wouldn't have gotten it in time so I was just looking in Walmart. I had no idea how hard it is to find a purple lipstick! Browns, plums, pinks, and reds. That's it! The closest thing to a true purple I could find was Revlon Va Va Violet.

Looks red to me! It's a really lovely color and I don't regret getting it, especially for just $5, but it doesn't look like it does in the tube. I was expecting a really dark purple. Oh well. I'm thinking of mixing it with Morgana's Serenity (blue) to get more of a true purple, we'll see how that goes.

  2. That color kind of reminds me of Clinique's Black Honey Almost lipstick, super dark in the tube but a different color on the lips!
