For Summer 2016, Ceramic Glaze released the Botanical Oasis collection featuring 8 shades that would be great all over the nail or to create elaborate nail art.
Ceramic Glaze is available exclusively at Shoppers Drug Mart in Canada. All nail polishes are free of added formaldehyde, toluene, and DBP, and has a special non-thickening formula, ensuring an even application. The collection is inspired by the whimsical greenery and flowers that fill our gardens in the summertime. I have 7 of the shades to share with you guys today! So read on if you want to find the perfect nail color.
Surfs Up- I've been searching for a mint green since I ran out Essie's Turquoise & Caicos and this is a gorgeous bright mint turquoise with a cream finish.
French Riviera- Blue polish is all the rage recently and this is a true sky blue with a slight shimmer.
Petal Pusher- Love at first sight, I knew this was going to be my favorite! My favorite color is lavender and this has a blue base mixed with lilac.

You can't forget about the pink polishes for the summer! They would be beautiful on fingers and on toes.
Perfect Peony- This color is like Coralista on your fingers. It's a bright but lighter shade of pink coral.
Urbane- This shade looked boring in the bottle but is a beautiful peachy nude with some shimmer. It actually pulls way more orange on me than what is shown in the bottle.
Seize The Day- Very similar to Perfect Peony, this one takes it up a notch. If you want a vibrant pink fuschia, this is it!
Impulsive- Truly unique, this shade is a berry with pink and blue shimmer. However, the formula dries matte which gives it an unpolished (pun not intended) look.

The one shade I do not have is Heavenly which is a sheer pearl color that would be great as a base layer.
I love the shade selection of this collection! Overall, I find Ceramic Glaze polishes to be very smooth and almost always opaque in two coats. However, the brush is very small and long which makes it harder to control especially for beginners. The smaller brush may make it easier for nail art, but harder to get fast application for the whole nail.
