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 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!
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.
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
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!
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.
What a pretty pink, no? Not much else to say about this one ‘cept it’s nice.
Red My Mind
An orangy red I can get with.
Relish the Moment
Super nice and super perfect for fall.
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
Meh. I mean, this shade is nice but it’s just not doing it for me. Great application, though, if this shade is you!
Minty perfection in two coats. I like.
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.
For a smokey green-grey, I’m really into this shade. Hello, fall.
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
You all should know by now I love my deep colours, so this rich blue is p-e-r-f.
The Body Shop Green
Yup, I’m into this one too.
