I really wanted to love this polish. Gunmetal, with shimmer, this polish is great to wear in the fall and winter. However, despite using a good base and top coat, this polish chipped almost immediately and kept chipping after that. Love the color, but I'd look for a longer-lasting dupe.

While this is a very nice charcoal shimmer it is a nightmare to apply well. The pigmentation is great but the application is difficult and somewhat gloopy, something I have never encountered with a chanel nail polish before. The price does not bother me and the application and drying time are usually excellent. the drying time of noir ceramic however, is terrible, you can still be waiting for it to dry hours after applying and thats just two coats!

The color is a charcoal w/ fine mult-shimmer. The multi-shimmer lightens it from a black to a charcoal. The shimmer is fine, and dense. People complain about the wear, but it totally depends on the person, the basecoat/topcoat you're using. At $20-25, it's very pricey -- you're paying for the Chanel brand, but if you want to go cheaper, try Misa Wishing On a Star. Pretty much the same in every way except the shimmer isn't as fine.

I waited long time before writing this review but the reason is: I hardly use this NP. It's still the Chanel NP quality that I like (no chip for 4-5 days on me - hence 2 lippies) but everything else with BC is just off. Unlike with other Chanel NPs I have issues with the brush and further the application of product. Perhaps it's the consistency of this particular color, but the brush gets so narrow and feels flimsy - so the first coat is usually streaky and tricky to apply nicely (so for that 2 lippies off). The other point I had to take off for the color itself: It's really off-black, kind of faded-looking. Slight shimmer might be the culprit, or maybe it's just less pigment concentration. I much prefer the smooth deep black-blackness of Black Satin.

Eh, the brush is way too small. The product is rather thin, and the color is best with 3 coats. I think I will stick to cheaper brands. I like how this is not a harsh black, but I think I'd have been happier if this were cheaper. I think I might have been happier with My Private Jet, or one the the Rimmels or Coloramas.

Yesterday I had fun at the Chanel counter !!
You can pics in my gallery, you see on my hand : Ballerina, Rouge noir, noir ceramic and black satin. All colors just one coat.
The green background pic is in sunlight, the white one in with flash.
About noir ceramic: no no for me.
It says: I would like but I do not dare.
I prefer black satin. Black is wonderful in all its black glory.

This is too glitzy & glittery for me. A black NP should be nothing of the sort. I use it on my toes just to humor myself bc this NP is super expensive. If you want a real, true no fluff black I suggest MAC Nocturnelle.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE this polish!!! Normally I would not spend this much on a nail polish but this one is amazing. First of all, the color is beautiful. It is a deep dark charcoal with a fine sheen running through it. It looks so pretty when you catch it in the light. It's nice and dark without being garish.
Secondly, the lasting power of this polish is great! So far I have had it on for three days and I have no chips *knocks wood*. I am really impressed!!

I think this colour is stunning. It is my 2nd favourite polish after Chanel's Rouge Noir. I also find that it lasts slightly longer than Chanel's other shades, although not quite long enough.It is quite thick but not sticky -remember to shake! I would definitely recommend this for the colour but please please please do not wear it on long nails girls!!!!

This is very deep charcoal, almost black shade with very fine silver glitter. I found the consistency very thick and this made application quite difficult. You need a very steady hand to apply this otherwise it can look a real mess. I donít think that I would repurchase a black nail polish again but it is fun whilst it lasts.

I love this. I used to wear Vamp all the time (in the winter) but got this in the mail yesterday and am in love! It isn't gothy and looks sleek and chic. I am actually a social worker and it looks really good on my short nails. I have already gotten compliments on it from my husband from all people!!!

I was sooo surprised that there was a Chanel counter still selling this! The microsparkles keep this black from looking gothy and instead gives a very chic look on short, rounded nails. It's very distinct too. I was ringing up a customer wearing this color and I could instantly tell it was no knock off Wet'n Wild or something. It's a great, fun, long wearing color. A nice change from my usual nude-pinks.

I love this so much it hurts! This is my new favorite black, and I mean I like it so much I've only worn it once (what if I run out???). I think this is what people, including me, expected Black Satin to be - it's a unique black with visible shimmer. The shimmer is mostly silvery, but I catch the occasional pale blue sparkle or two from it, as well. It's definitely not gunmetal, like OPI Black Satin - it's black, with shimmer. I think people will either be madly in love with this look, or find it totally odd and off-putting. It took some getting used to for me, but I do love it. If Noir Ceramic were a man, and if he would have me, I'd marry him.
This looked great with just two coats, and I had no issues with streaky or troublesome application. (I'm guessing three coats would give both the intensity of the black and the shimmer a little more oomph, but I haven't tried this yet.) It wore very well, too: With Chanel, I can usually go for three or four days with almost no wear, maybe just a little at the tips, and then it all goes to chippy, flakey hell pretty fast afterward. I'm not sure why, but since I change polish pretty frequently, it's not a big issue for me. I always use a base and top coat, incidentally, although the brands and combinations thereof always vary.
As a final note: Yes, this is overpriced. (It wouldn't be Chanel if it were affordable!) I know some people are willing to spend a lot of money on nail polish just because, whereas other people balk at $5 as expensive. This is one case, however, where I think the uniqueness of the shade definitely justifies the price tag. Or so I tell myself... :D

I think this is different enough from Black Satin to own both. Noir Ceramic isn't not a dark jet black like Black Satin and I think this is because of the microglitter/sparkles in it. One coat actually looks grey, two coats and it's black but still not a pure black. If you found the shimmer in Black Satin to be too subtle, try Noir Ceramic. As for wear, I didn't find this to last as long as Black Satin for some reason. Still, it's a great shade and a more fun alternative to a jet black.

I'm getting tired of squinting at all these "satiny black" polishes trying to see if they are different from one another, so, Noir Ceramic - Thank you for being everything I hoped you would be and saving me from squinting once again. This is truly a unique black. It is a thinner formula, not so black black black and inky where two coats erradicate any micro shimmer that might be there. There is glimmer in this polish, and you can see it! The wear is incredible, which is 1) a confort since when black chips there is no hiding it and 2) it should be for $18! Whoooey... never thought I'd pay that for a polish, then I got this, loved it, and followe dup with Madness - the spring chocolate color, and my hands down favorite polish. But about Noir Ceramic - this is a great black. It's unto itself, and while mildly pearly blacks need a magnifying gass to really matter, this is an out in the open unique black. Seriously.
Oh - darn Chanel and the uuber skinny brush? What's the deal? Thicker brush please - dark colors go on straky enough as it is. For $18 please add 10 bristles to the little brush-lette.

I am loving my new noir ceramic. i love first of all that the color has a little more play than my black satin. i also love that the texture is fairly thin and thus layers easily and dries quickly. think of this as black satin with enough shimmery flecks in it to lighten it up for spring. wear with pink shades on lips & cheeks. the jury is still out as to how well this wears.

I picked up the last one at Macy's. I put it on right away and LOVED it. It's like a super dark charcoal grey w/ super fine sparkles. I like how its basically a black..but softer. The sparkles make it ultra chic as well. If I could track down another one..I'd buy it!

I'm not usually one to buy into a "must have" product craze, but this stuff really is worth all the hype (unlike Black Satin, which is totally regular)! At first I wasn't sure if I really needed it, but I tracked it down anyway. It looks dissapointing in the bottle, like any old black nailpolish with sparkles, but once you put on a couple of coats you can see the gorgeous, unique color shimmer. On me it actually has a tendancy to look forest green, but I hear other people say it's blue shimmer. There's really nothing else out there exactly like this, so if you can find one and you love dark polish, don't miss out!

I found this and was super excited to add a metallic black to my collection. This just isn't as good as the black satin. It looks black inside but in light its a glittery grey. It reminds me of when I would paint a coat of glitter over nailpolish. It looks good as far as metallic black goes, but I don't love it. Fair skin/warm/dark blond/blue eyes.
