Ceramic Glaze Fall/Holiday 2015 Collection: Review and Swatches
For Fall and Holiday 2015, Ceramic Glaze has released a gorgeously vampy and festive polish collection perfect for complementing your chic trench or dazzling your tips at a holiday party. To see some swatches of the polishes, click.......
This is an inky dark teal cream. The formulation is super rich and creamy, two coats gave a beautiful and smooth coverage.
Sorcery, two coats with no top coat.
Diamond Dust:
This is a holographic micro-glitter top coat suspended in a clear base. The polish has plenty of glitters so I only needed one coat for a nice and even scatter of glitters. This is a great dupe for the famous "Fairy Dust" from China Glaze.
Diamond Dust, one coat over Sorcery.
This is an inky dark blue cream. Similar to Sorcery, it is also super rich and pigmented; I used two coats for the swatches below.
Regal, two coats with no top coat.
Snow Queen:
This is a clear base sparsely filled with medium and large hexagon matte white glitters. The base is quite thin so hardly any glitter gets carried out of the bottle. I used two thick coats for the swatches below and I still had to do a lot of glitter-fishing. All in all, this one was very disappointing.
Snow Queen, two coats over Regal.
A rich berry plum filled with tiny light purple shimmer specks, this is a really nice fall and winter polish. The formulation is decent but I wish it was more self-leveling. I used two coats for the swatches below.
Applause, two coats with no top coat.
This is a purple/green/gold duo-chrome shimmer. In the bottle, this shade looks a lot more purple but on the nails it comes off more olive-gold. The formulation is a bit sheer but not difficult to work with; I used three coats for the swatches.
Wonderland, three coats with no top coat.
This is a really gorgeous winter collection, the formulation all across the board (with the exception of Snow Queen) is really smooth and pigmented. My personal favorite is Sorcery (dark teal), Diamond Dust (holographic glitter top coat), and Wonderland (gold/purple shimmer).

Ceramic Glaze is available in stores at Shoppers and Pharmaprix across Canada.
