The Body Shop has been clearancing their nail polishes, so I couldn’t resist picking up a few more at CA$2 a pop. I’ve reviewed a few other Colour Crush Nail Polishes in the past, and they’re pretty nice polishes for the price (CA$8 but of course sales would make them about $4).
Here’s Meet Me at Dusk (820), a very conservative and office-friendly shade of soft brick rose in a cream finish. It runs warm, though it would probably still work quite nicely on cool-toned skin. My warm skintone probably makes it look a bit peachier.
As usual, the pigmentation is good and the polish was easy to apply. It’s fully opaque with two coats.
It’s not the most exciting color, admittedly, but it’s perfectly pleasant and I can’t complain about the formula.
As for these polishes being clearanced, I do not know whether these are being discontinued. I’m hoping the line is merely being revamped/repackaged, because it’d be a shame for The Body Shop to stop making one of the few products of theirs I really enjoy!
The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Colour is 0.22 fl oz / 6.8 mL and retails for US$8 / CA$6 / GB£5. The formula is 5-free and vegan. The website does not state what the 5-free ingredients are, but typically the five are: toluene, formaldehyde, dibutyl phthalate (DBP), camphor, and formaldehyde resin. The product is made in France. The Body Shop remains a cruelty-free company.
The Body Shop was founded in 1976 by Dame Anita Roddick. It is headquartered in Littlehampton, England. In 2006, the company was acquired by L’Oréal.
