Ceramic Glaze Botanical Oasis Collection - Review and Swatches #myCGnails

Oooh, do I have a good one for you today!


One of the many things I love about summer is the bright nail polish collections that come out.  Granted, I'll sport colourful nail polish during any season, but I love seeing what fun colours brands will put out.

Today I have swatches of the latest collection from Ceramic Glaze.  Behold, the Botanical Oasis Collection, a limited edition 8-piece collection that features an array of shades that scream "Summer is around the corner!".  Let's get into the swatches.

First up is 'Surf's Up', which is a beautiful tiffany blue that makes me dream of surfing the waves in Hawaii.  This one was probably my favourite colour of the bunch - it has such life to it!  Below is 3 coats.

Next is 'Impulsive', a dark orchid purple with blue and purple microglitter that dries to a matte finish.  I wish that this colour was more similar to the lighter colour in the bottle.  Below is 3 coats.

Of course, I had to see what 'Impulsive' looked like with a glossy topcoat.  Below is 3 coats, with topcoat.

'Perfect Peony' is a jelly neon pinky coral.  For a jelly formula, I was pretty pleased that I achieved full coverage, without doing a thousand coats.  Below is 3 coats.

'Heavenly' is a sheer iridescent pearl that leans green and pink in the right light.  I'm not one for sheer colours that show the free edge of my nail, but I imagine that 'Heavenly' could lend itself nicely to being layered over another colour.  Below is 3 coats.

'Petal Pusher' is a lovely heather purple.  Not to be confused with Essie's 'Petal Pushers', which is a light grey.  Below is 2 coats.

'Seize the Day' is hot magenta jelly, with a similar formula to 'Perfect Peony'.  Below is 3 coats.

'Urbane' is a peach sandstone with a very subtle silver microshimmer.  This is another one of my favourites.

Finally, we have 'French Riviera', which is a denim blue that has blue microshimmer.  Similar to 'Urbane' the microshimmer is extremely subtle (you have to look super close to see it).
