ceramic glaze- let it glow


New nail polish alert! New nail polish alert!

New to me, anyway. I'm not sure how long Ceramic Glaze has been on the scene, but it's totally new to me. The same week I was sent this bottle from their Holiday Collection (Shimmer & Sparkle, one of two collections actually) I spotted them at my local Shopper's Drug Mart. A new polish brand to love is never a bad thing in my book! 


Ceramic Glaze- Let it Glow*  14ml $10.99

'Bring a little ornamental bling to your holiday nails with the Shimmer & Sparkle Collection, by Ceramic Glaze. Choose from 4 shimmery shades or 4 tinsel glitters. Each shimmery shade has a complimentary tinsel glitter: you can wear the shimmer alone, or overlay the glitter for an even more festive look! For holiday fetes, or the perfect little stocking stuffers.'

Let it Glow is a shimmering golden-champagne foil that is flat out g-o-r-g-e-o-u-s! It doesn't look like much in the bottle, to be honest, but it really shines once on the nail. The formula is thin and was quite sheer on the first coat, but it built up to opaque with three thin coats. The formula doesn't allow you to apply thicker coats- polish ends up flooding the nail- so thin coats are necessary.

Having never used a Ceramic Glaze polish before I was quite pleased at how shiny this was when it dried. The finish feels durable and almost like you've already applied a topcoat. I found I only got three days of wear before I had minor chipping, but you know what I always say- everything chips on me.

Overall, I'm pretty happy with my Ceramic Glaze experience and have a feeling I'll be spying their display again next time I'm in Shopper's. In Canada, Ceramic Glaze is exclusively sold in Shopper's Drug Mart and PharmaPrix stores. Have you tried Ceramic Glaze? Recommend any shades?
