This collection is mostly creme finishes, but does include 2 with really unique finishes! Most only needed 2 coats of polish, and all are photographed in natural daylight with unedited pictures so you can see the true finish! Here is a look at each polish:
Ceramic Glaze Heavenly Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

Heavenly ~ this has a beautiful iridescent white and pink finish! This was the only polish that needed 3 coats. This was a little sheer but is a very beautiful, subtle shade!

Ceramic Glaze Urbane Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews
Urbane ~ this is a great peachy, orange neutral creme! I only call this a neutral because it is my type of neutral - it is a very natural colour that adds just the right pop! 

Ceramic Glaze Surf's Up Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

Surf's Up ~ How gorgeous is this colour?! Ahhh... I love how perfect and bright it is! This is a great mint green that is just a hint more blue than a true green! This is absolutely gorgeous and screams Summer! You will be seeing this on my nails frequently! 

Ceramic Glaze French Riviera Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

French Riviera ~ this is a great bright blue creme. I have to admit, blues are not normally a colour I reach for, but this shade is stunning and again, is perfect for Spring and Summer. This is a really a classic, go-to blue that would look great on everyone! 

Ceramic Glaze Petal Pusher Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

Petal Pusher ~ this is a beautiful medium-toned purple! This is gorgeous creme polish and it glides on nice and smooth. This is beautiful for Spring time and I think this shade would be flattering on everyone! This is great for those who don't want their nails too bright but are still looking for colour in their mani! 

Ceramic Glaze Seize The Day Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

Seize The Day ~ hello pink! This is another stunning polish - it is bright without being crazy or neon. This is a perfect colour for me - I LOVE a perfect hot pink polish, and this is it. This is nice creme polish that goes on smooth like all the rest! 

Ceramic Glaze Perfect Peony Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

Perfect Peony ~ this shade photographed a little darker than it appears to me - it is a lighter, peacher, coral pink. This is another great bright creme polish for those that need a coral for Summer! 

Ceramic Glaze Impulsive Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

Ceramic Glaze Impulsive Limited Edition Botanical Oasis Collection Swatches and Reviews

Impulsive ~ this was the second very unique shade in the collection! I was very surprised when I applied this polish and it was very matte - it was a little harder to see the blue and purple micro-glitter! I applied a top coat so you could see it finished as well - this is a nice and bright colour with a great hint of glitter in it! 

Overall, I am loving the shades included in the Botanical Oasis collection from Ceramic Glaze - they are stunning and are perfect for Spring and Summer! The creme polishes all applied very smoothly and were great with 2 coats. This iridescent polish did need 3 coats and was still slightly transparent, but was gorgeous! And the polish with glitter was a little patchy when applied, but did smooth out in 2 coats and looked great with a top coat! 

These retail for approximately $10.99 (could vary per store). Ceramic Glaze formulates their polishes with adhesives and plasticizers to prevent chipping and includes a special clay that hardens the nail and extra pigments for saturated, even coverage. Ceramic Glaze polishes are free of DBP, Toluene and added Formaldehyde.
