This month The Body Shop launched their own range of nail products including Colour Crush Nail varnish containing 24 vibrant colours, a nail art pen and a Sweet Almond Oil Nail Varnish Remover. Great mix there, love it!
The Colour Crush Nails collection is a ‘3 free-from’ formula – no formaldehyde, formaldehyde resin or camphor. I’m not sure why it’s not a 5 free-from’ formula but who am I to complain when I rarely take notice of what’s in my polish oooops!
I wasn’t sure what to expect from these polishes in terms of application or wear but they really surprised me. The colour pay off is perfect and they lasted about 4-5 days without chipping…even on my daughter’s nails who climbs trees and other mischief!
I did some very basic dots on her nails with the nail art pen, a double-sided stick with a big ballpoint on one end and a smaller one the other. I couldn’t master the stripes with it though, I think I’m more used to brushes for lines. It’s perfect for doing dots but let’s be real, most people use a pen. I suppose it is a pretty tool to have in your nail kit instead of a boring looking pen haha!
Next is the nail polish remover which of course smells like almonds 🙂 There is still a strong smell like other nail polish removers but it’s a conditioning and acetone free formula so not drying on your cuticles and nails which is really the last thing I need on my dry cuticles and brittle nails! 😮
Overall I’m very impressed and the prices are good too, €7.50 for the polishes, €8.95 for 100ml nail polish remover and same for the nail art pen.
