ZOMBIFIED NAILS: Rahlman & Sympath

Pin It Today I have some pretty glitter top coats for you guys!

Zombified Nails Rahlman and Sympath

I'm sure you've seen Zombified Nails floating around the Etsy scene for awhile now. It seems that she has revamped her polishes and entered the world of glitter! Check out my swatches for Rahlman and Sympath after the jump!
I remember finding Zomified Nails on Instagram back at the beginning of the year, we have talked here and there and shared nail ideas and tips. I remember her polishes were some darker, some shimmer and some duochrome polishes. Through the IG world, I have seen her work on and test a bunch of polishes recently. Since then it seems her polishes are more glitter focused now! Check out these bottle shots:

Here are the swatches for Sympath:

Sympath is made up of light purple matte hex, purple squares and purple shards. If you're a purple lover, this is the top coat for you! I did 1 coat over both Wet n Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint and Essie Power Clutch, a light and a dark, so you could see how different this polish can look! The application was good, I did need to spread it out every now and then, it tended to be a little clumpy - but nothing unmanageable. There was no need to dip and dab and Sympath provided great glitter coverage. And only 1 coat of Seche Vite was needed :]

LOL And in case you're just as in the dark as I am, I googled what Sympath meant: "A prophet. An adept who is particularly attuned to Standing Stones. Sympaths are authors of the Book of Standing Stones." - www.savageearth.net/glossary.html Which I guess makes sense when Zombified Nails refers to Sympath as being 'inspired by the Reverend and his beautiful eyes."

Next is Rahlman:

Zombified Nails refers to Rahlman as "inspired by a relatively new character, who I don't want to give too much away about", hmmmmmm. Rahlman is made up over matte pearly white, black and yellow hex. I'm not sure if I like it over Aruba Blue or Exotic Encounters yet... I'm kind of leaning toward the green but they're both such pretty combos! In the swatches above I did 1 coat of Rahlman. There was no need to dip and dab, there was still some clumping of glitter (like Symph) but, it was easily smoothed out with a few strokes. Rahlman also had great glitter cover and was good to go with 1 coat of Seche Vite!

What do you guys think? What's your favorite color combo from above? I'm still leaning towards the ChG Exotic Encounters and Rahlman combo!

Want to find out more about Zombified Nails? Visit Alaina's Etsy shop to see all her pretty mixes! Her glitter mixes start at $8.00-$8.50 and you can find some of her older polishes listed for $3.50.
