I have to say I'm pretty impressed overall how well the polish actually held up! I could have kept it on longer, but as beautiful as Zombie Zest is, I was absolutely dying to put something else on after almost a week!

I know that the rules state that 10 blogs should be tagged for the awards, but I'm cheating and nominating 3 for each award, I hope there will be no hard feelings!
Top 10 Award
I was tagged for this award by Opinionated Little Finger, So Nailed and Varnish Me. Thank you so much ladies!
The rules for this award includes listing your top 10 cosmetics, and for me my must have products are:
Seche Vite. No explanation needed, right?
Cuticle Butter - home made or Lemony Flutter from Lush
Cuticle remover - I use Blue Cross (Bought from Tiffany Nail Supply)
Lucy Minerals Mineral Foundation, custom blended. I love this stuff, it's the only foundation I use. Plus Annie who owns the company and makes the makeup is so nice.
Natural Lip Balm. I'm a total lip balm addict, and my substance of choice is natural and preferably organic. I love Badger Balm, Crazy Rumors and Honeybee Gardens. I buy them all from Supersmoocher.
Mineral Blush from The All Natural Face. Super cheap and amazing (amazing!) colours that suit my difficult pale skin tone so well. I love Every Day Is a Good Day in particular.
Mirror Shine Lip Stick by 17. I'm not a lip stick gal at all, so this sheer, glossy lip stick is perfection for me!
Wild Curl Mascara also by 17. My all time fave. Easily rivals L'Oreal Voluminous, and unlike L'Oreal it's cruelty free.
Laura Geller Baked Cake Eyeliner. This is a super pigmented baked eyeliner that I use either dry or wet with an angled brush. It's my all time fave eyeliner for the upper lash line.
Last but not least, the most obvious one - Nail Polish!
Mini Nail Blog - What this girl can't make in acrylics isn't worth making!
Addicted To Polish - Beautiful nails and fun colour choices.
Acetone and Old Lacquer - There seems to be something in the water in Finland, making some of the ladies there super talented? This is no exception!
Then I got tagged for no less than four awards by the talented Minnie from Mini Nail Blog
For this award you are supposed to share 7 random facts about yourself, and fill in a form.
I have already shared 10 random facts with you all, so I'll go straight to the form :)
The Nail Addict - I hope this doesn't sound patronising, but the fact that this super talented blogger is only 16 completely blows me away! Her nails are master pieces!
Beauty By Kayla Shevonne - A lovely mix of things, but above all really fun and pretty nails.
Oooh, Shinies! - I love how pretty and neat, yet creative her nails are!

I actually didn’t pick up any of the polishes from the China Glaze Anchors Away collection until very recently. There wasn’t much that stood out for me, but eventually I did get most of them.
I’m particularly happy I picked up Sea Spray! It’s such a unique colour in my collection, a lovely storm grey with a subtle micro shimmer that prevents the polish from looking like putty.
This is two coats and the application was perfect.
