Celanaste Nail Polish Swatches & Review

Saturday, November 14, 2020

Purchased by me

 I will admit that I have curbed my nail polish spending significantly since about 2017. I used to buy ANYTHING and EVERYTHING I liked. Even if I wasn't sure I liked it that much. Nowadays, I try to spend money only on polishes I believe I will truly love. So, I surprised myself when I splurged recently on these polishes from the Russian nail polish brand, Celanaste, by nail blogger Nastya @u_nona on Instagram. I follow a few Russian nail polish lovers on Instagram and noticed their swatches from the brand. I was always very intrigued and excited. Celanaste is based in Russia and so when the opportunity to participate in a group buy with some fellow Canadians, I jumped at the chance. I don't see many reviews, videos or otherwise online so I hope having some more will help others decide if these polishes are for them. 

A big thanks to Yulia (@vicerimus) for making it possible for me to try these beautiful polishes. 

Overall, I think these polishes are perfect. The formula is incredible with most polishes only needing two coats. The finishes are beautiful, unique and absolutely gorgeous. I can't say enough positive things about these polishes. This brand is Russian so that means these polishes are only available by mail and it takes a loooong time to get to North America. These polishes worked out to about $20 CAD each so they are definitely a luxury brand and they do feel very luxurious in terms of their packaging, bottle weight and formulation. 

I have also never seen swatches of these polishes on anything other than a white skin tone which is definitely not okay for me. I do only want to support brands that show their polishes on a diverse array of skin tones. This is something I commit to doing moving forward - only supporting brands that are BIPOC-friendly and supportive. 

As for me, if you want to see these nail polishes on my white girl hands, then please read on and watch the live swatch video on the Streets Ahead Style YouTube channel.

Celanaste Monarch swatch nail polish

Celanaste Monarch (3 coats) is a deep wine red filled with so many tiny hex glitters as well as iridescent and multichrome flakes. This was the only polish that gave me any issues. And it wasn't even much of an issue. I just expected it to be opaque in two but it needed three because the base is quite sheer.
