The Body Shop’s Got Something New Up Their Sleeve

Look at what I got spoiled with! The Body Shop is launching their new Colour Crush polishes next month (so get ready!) and I got a sneak peek at 18 (!) of the 24 shades. And get this – the polish is free of all those nasty, harsh chemicals we don’t need in our lives, like Formaldehyde (yuck), Dibutyl Phthalate (what? Ew), Formaldehyde Resin (gross) and Camphor (bye). Plus, they’re vegan. Yay!

I have to say, overall I’m super impressed with these little bad boys. For $6 each, you get a pretty solid brush and an easy-to-apply, high-quality varnish. But just in case you don’t believe me, find my swatches of all 18 shades I got below. Each swatch is two coats with no top coat. Enjoy! XO

Pink Cream

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Pink Cream

Pink Cream is way too sheer for my taste, but it left my nails looking nice and girly, polished and clean. I can’t see myself grabbing for this on the reg, though. Too light for me!

Frosting Fancy

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Frosting Fancy

I was fully expecting this shade to suck because we all know how white-tones cream shades can be (aka a pain in the ass) but surprisingly, this was pleasantly easy to apply and opaque in two coats. It has just a whisper of pink in it and I kinda love it.

Gorgeous Grey

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Gorgeous Grey

I apologize for the horrid photo, I don’t know what happened with this one. I didn’t find Gorgeous Grey to be all that gorgeous, but maybe it’s due in part to the fact that my fingers were radiating a blue hue from a polish you’ll see later on…

Meet Me At Dusk

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Meet Me At Dusk

How pretty! While this reminds, just slightly, of a total grandma colour, I’m thinking I can defs make this chic. Great in two coats!

Peach Babe

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Peach Babe

Luuuhhhhhv this peach shade. It’s super bright and was the easiest to apply. Now if only the sun were still beaming down on me, I could wear this on the reg. Someone remind me why I live where I do.

Cupid Pink

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Cupid Pink

What a pretty pink, no? Not much else to say about this one ‘cept it’s nice.

Rosy Cheeks

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Rosy Cheeks

Cute!!!

Red My Mind

The body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Red My Mind

An orangy red I can get with.

Relish the Moment

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Relish the Moment

Super nice and super perfect for fall.

A Grape Affair

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - A Grape Affair

Yay, lilac! I love this one because it’s my favourite colour but also because it was nice and easy to apply. I love me some lilac.

Got The Blues

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Got The Blues

Meh. I mean, this shade is nice but it’s just not doing it for me. Great application, though, if this shade is you!

Mint Cream

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Mint Cream

Minty perfection in two coats. I like.

Minty Amour

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Minty Amour

UGH. Stay away from Minty Amour. I had this one for literally maybe three minutes and it stained my nails and skin. Do they not test the polish beforehand? Really? Do not buy.

Big Smoke

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Big Smoke

For a smokey green-grey, I’m really into this shade. Hello, fall.

Crimson Kiss

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Crimson Kiss

I am majorly falling for this crimson shade because it’s what I’m digging at the moment and I think it’s the perfect wine colour to wear this season. Love!

Crazy for Blue

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Crazy for Blue

You all should know by now I love my deep colours, so this rich blue is p-e-r-f.

The Body Shop Green

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - The Body Shop Green

Yup, I’m into this one too.

Smoky Rose

The Body Shop Color Crush Nail Polish - Smokey RoseThis black you see right here is just one coat, and it’s pretty awesome. For $6, it might just be one of the best black shades I’ve ever tried.
