OPI 'Zom-body To Love'

Happy Sunday! Since I live on Long Island and basically everything is closed today due to Hurricane Irene I figured I would do a second post for the day. Yay!  Parts of Long Island are flooded due to the tropical storm (she was downgraded) but where I am we got lucky. It's still windy but the rain has stopped and I'm completely stir crazy and need to get out of the house. I'm lucky my power is still on because I know other areas in the same town are still without power.

This post is dedicated to OPI's 'Zom-body to Love' which is the new glow in the dark polish from their 2011 Halloween Collection. I was so excited to get my hands on this I didn't mind paying full retail price.

'Zom-body to Love' has the same particle-like pieces in it as China Glaze 'Ghoulish Glow', which is what I think gets it to glow in the first place. It's pretty sheer and I needed three coats to get to the swatch below. I was disappointed by how sheer it is since I really like the shade of green. I hate that at 3 coats you can still see my VNL. I'll be layering this in the future.

As mentioned above the swatch below is 3 coats of 'Zom-body to Love' with no top coat.
Now for the disappointing photo. I couldn't get my camera to capture the glow in the dark effect - this is the best I could get. I can assure you that it does glow though.  :(

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. So cool! How long did the glowing effect last for?

  2. Not that long, unfortunately. When I held my hands up to the light it was super bright but faded pretty quickly. The photo above was probably about 30 seconds after I held my hand up to the light for about 15-20 seconds (I'm impatient lol)

  3. What if you try putting china glaze-ghoulish glow over it?

  4. Ooo, that's a good idea. I may try that! I wonder if Ghoulish Glow will make the green look milky?
    I broke a nail today and it's a really bad break so I'm going to have to give it a few days to grow out. :(

  5. Ooo!!! I love how it glows AND it's green, like really green! :D Thanks so much for posting a swatch - I was wondering what it looked like on by itself. :D

  6. No problem. I would be head over heels in love if you couldn't see my VNL.
