Pizazz & Wulung and Hauls Pics

Morning Y'all! 
This week I had to do a mani that was cute and quick for a birthday dinner for my SIL Saturday, and a car club meeting Sunday.  It took me FOREVER (like 2 days) to decide what colors/styles/techniques to use.  I ended on China Glaze Pizazz and Goldie Wulung.  
This is one coat Wulung, and one coat Pizazz. On my left hand the glitter came out a little more dense but this stuff is crazy glitter packed even in one coat!  on my accent nail I did a stripe with it, & I pretty much just laid the brush down and that's what I got. I don't think it would be hard to build this color to opacity.

I also made my first visit to an Ulta store this weekend!  I picked up OPI Stay the Night (one of the Liquid Sand shades from the Mariah Carey collection), Orly Rock It, & Zoya Aurora.

OPI Stay the Night
Every review I saw of these polishes seemed to favor the Blue and Purple Liquid Sand shades, then the Red/Pink, then Stay the Night.  However, from the moment I saw the collection, THIS is the one I wanted.  I think it looks like lava :)  This is two coats, and you can see how well those pinkish glitters pop.  The bottom half of the nail swatch shows 2 coats of my normal top coat.  Also, I know a lot of people are concerned about the roughness but I tested it on my hair, face, clothing (including materials that grab at rough skin) and it didn't grab anything, its just not smooth. I think it felt like a matted glitterbomb.

Orly Rock It
This is one I didn't plan on but saw it on the clearance rack and fell in love. Its a pinkish red with a golden shimmer. It reminds me of a material used in Indian clothing and decor. Zoya Daul also reminds me of Indian clothing and decor.

Zoya Aurora
This is one I think everyone has, and I've been wanting for a while.   I finally got around to getting it and I can't believe I waited so long! This is a gorgeous purple holo, and I think its a shade that will work year round.

Here's nail wheel swatches of all three...

I also won a bottle of Silly Bee's Chickadees Mystery Mix Volume 1!
She describes this as " Here’s the deal: I keep a jug in my polish “lab” and pour in it any misfit polish mixes that just didn’t come out quite right. Once the jug is full, I bottle it and start all over again" You can also find her on Facebook :)

I also just received 2 Jindie Nails polishes

This is Burrrberry, it's a milky white base with several sizes of glitters in "berry colors" such as blue, magenta, strawberry, raspberry, blackberry (wine colored) glitters

This is Be Someone Cute, its a slightly pink tinted base, with neon pink, white and black matte glitters and hot pink micro flakies.
