The Body Shop Colour Crush Nails - My Picks and Nail Art

I was so excited when The Body Shop launched their new nail polish collection last month. The Colour Crush Nail Colour Collection was introduced with 24 shades, although a couple of new ones have now been added for Christmas. The formula of these polishes are fantastic, you only need two coats of colour and they are very fast drying. They are long lasting especially when used with the base and top coat and that has been tested with the processing of a rather large retail delivery!

These are the shades I have so far. As an employee I was allowed to choose one when they first arrived in store and I went for the lilac shade called A Grape Affair. I get so many compliments when I wear this shade, it is lovely and bright and perfect for all seasons.

When pay day arrived I decided to pick up three more and chose the pastel green shade called Mint Cream, the dark vampy red/purple called Deeply In Love and the Top and Base Coat. I already know that Deeply In Love is going to be the one I reach for almost daily this autumn/winter.

Not only are the shades and formulas great but these polishes are also 100% vegan and animal cruelty free.

Here is an attempt at some nail art. I decided to try a simple floral design using A Grape Affair on all my nails and then painting the flowers with Deeply In Love and the leaf detail with Mint Cream. I used a thin nail art brush and used a Natural Collection White nail polish shade to highlight certain areas of the design to add some depth and detail.

I absolutely love the shades I have so far and already have a few more on my list of things to buy this pay day!

The nail polishes are only £5 each and you can see the full range here - link

As an employee I received one shade for free when the collection was launched but bought the other three with my own money using my staff discount. I have not been asked to write about these products but chose to do so because I enjoy using these products regularly.
