Make Up Monday - Body Shop Nail Polish

Hello, hello!!

Welcome back to A Mascara Moment!!

I hope you all had a lovely weekend.  We were busy with errands and family time.  My husband went back to work after a nice long break.  It is always sad to see him off knowing he won't be home for 20 days.

Today we are talking about nail polish!  I love a good nail polish.  Shiny, long lasting and pretty are my main parameters when picking nail polish.

I received some Body Shop nail polish for Christmas and thought I would give it a try and report back to you all.

Here are some swatches and a review on two shades of the Body Shop Nail polish...

Swatches



Colour Crush:  Meet Me At Dark, Peach Babe

Meet Me At Dark
Peach Crush



Both Colours In Action


Review

Colour:  The colours are beautiful and looked great on my nails.  Meet Me After Dark is a great almond nude that worked well with my pink toned skin.  Peach Babe was a bright coral that looked so fun as an accent colour.

Application:  Both colours had the same consistency - thin and watery.  They went on patchy and very thin and pooled in the cuticles.  It took three shades for opacity and I probably should have put on one more.

Longevity:  For three days my nails looked great.  Then on the forth day, the polish looked awful.  It was chipped and flaking and gross.  I did a touch up coat and they looked great again for another two days and then overnight just looked terrible again.  I did not add a top coat so that I could test just the nail polish.

Recommend:  I loved the colour and finish on these polishes.  The consistency was terrible and it felt like I was using half the bottle just to paint my nails.  I would probably not try any new colours but I liked the colour of Meet Me After Dark so much, that I would purchase that again and just deal with the crappy application.

Have you tried these polishes?  Do you like them?

Thanks for stopping by and let me know if you pick up any Body Shop Nail Polish!

Take care and I will talk to you tomorrow!
