I thought I had gone through all the summer nail polish I was going to get until I had a surprise package arrive from Ceramic Glaze. I love Ceramic Glaze so I’m always happy to get more but we’d already gone through Stunning Soiree (spring) and Summer Bloom (summer) but I had no idea Tahitian Sunset, a summer neon collection, was even a thing. This late summer collection has four new polishes (we received two) and four older polishes. Of the older polishes we already reviewed Watermelon Cooler, I’m On Island Time and Exotic Dragon Fruit in last summer’s Island Paradise collection. Here are two of the new shades and one that’s new to me.
This neon lime green is one of the brightest shades I’ve tried all summer. It’s almost blinding but very cool at the same time. Two coats got me full coverage but the formula is a little on the chalky side.
One of the things I’ve come to expect from Ceramic Glaze is a flawless formula. It’s Electric is one of the exceptions. It was really difficult to work with. There was patchiness and uneven spots but two careful coats later, I got a decent looking result. This neon coral really grew on me and after wearing it for almost a week, not only did I love it but there was zero tip wear.
How long has this neon turquoise been in stores and how have I never tried it before? This is one of my favourite shades of the whole season. It’s very sheer so you have to build up to the opacity you want (swatch is three coats) but it’s a satin finish so it dries extremely fast and you don’t have to worry about it getting clumpy.
I love a surprise collection and since this one included Mermaid’s Tale that made me even happier. Ceramic Glaze can surprise me whenever they want.
