Last week I wore The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Polish in #620 Got the Blues, which I got during the makeup 50% off sale back in May.
This normally retails for $8 for a 6.8ml bottle.
I’ve done a review on the Colour Crush nail polishes before, as one of the first posts on my blog where I reviewed my first Body Shop polish, the shade Almond Kiss (the quality of the photos were terrible and I have toyed with the idea of redoing those older posts but I think it’s better to leave them as they are, to show progress…)
Got the Blues is a denim-y blue with a bit of a periwinkle leaning. It’s dusty enough that I don’t feel like I’m wearing BLUE nail polish to the office. Plus, I thought last week was a good week to bust out a more colourful mani since 1) my boss was a away (which is funny I’d even care since my boss actually wears more outrageous colours that I do) 2) it was a short work week since we had Monday off 3) it’s full on summer weather here 😛
I found the formula to be a bit on the thinner side, here’s the first coat:
But I achieved opaque coverage on the second coat:
The polish applies ever so slightly darker than how the polish appears in the bottle:
After 7 days of wear, this is what it looks like:
Oddly, I experienced a chip on the index finger on my right hand on Day 7 – I hardly ever get actual nail polish chips like this. I don’t fault the polish since it’s likely I was picking at something (probably a sticker).
I really should apply hand cream and / or cuticle oil before I take these photos! 😛 This is right after I had finished cleaning the kitchen. 😳 Keeping it real here…
My overall rating and review still holds true from the Almond Kiss review. The Body Shop Color Crush nail polish is a solid performing polish but the fat cap still bothers me, and it is expensive on a per ml basis compared to other polishes – I’d only ever buy these when there’s a 50% off sale.
Are you a fan of The Body Shop nail polishes? What’s your favourite blue polish?
By the way, I’ve determined with 97% certainty that the mystery shade from OPI is Venice the Party? based on comments on here and on Instagram.
