China Glaze Pizzazz Nail Lacquer
China Glaze Pizzazz Nail Lacquer

Add a Little Pizzazz to Your Holiday Nails

China Glaze Pizzazz Nail Lacquer ($7.50 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “twinkling multi-dimensional glitter blend.” It’s a mix of light blue, green, orange, yellow, fuchsia, and pink medium-sized glitter particles. It’s definitely not too similar to Glitter all the Way. This is a bit more pastel, and the size is more confetti-like as well as more are uniform. I couldn’t think of a dupe, so I’d love to hear any suggestions you may have!

It’s glitter suspended in a clear base, so it’s best used as a layering polish; particularly because it’s really sparse. I layered one coat over China Glaze Blue Bells Ring, and then I did two coats of the glitter on its own on my thumb nail so you could see the coverage. It’s not a glitter that ever gets close to being opaque. ┬áThere was something about this polish that didn’t translate well no the nail–I think the thicker, almost gel-like consistency wasn’t helping, because the glitter didn’t spread evenly, which resulted in almost bald-looking spots in areas. ┬áThis shade required some pushing and pulling and patting to get the glitter to space out evenly.

I wasn't keen on the application--it was just extra thick, even for a glitter-in-clear-polish. It didn't apply evenly with ease, so it wasn't the best layering glitter I've come across. Sometimes the glitter composition can be worth the extra effort, but that is definitely going to come down to the individual.
