The Body Shop Nail Polish ~ Crimson Kiss Swatches and Review

Hey everyone! Hope you are enjoying your day. Previously I shared with you all the lovely Minty Amour Nail Polish from the The Body Shop Colour Crush collection. I have another shade from the same line to show you all, Crimson Kiss. It’s a dark red color polish which looks so amazing on my warm skin tone. Dark colors are totally my thing, I don’t wait for fall in particular to wear dark colors. Every now and then just to vamp up my look a bit, I love to have a dark color nail polish on my nails.

The Body Shop Nail Polish

  • Pigmentation: Crimson Kiss is a very nicely pigmented polish. Still, applying two layers is necessary to get the full opacity. This polish would be a perfect dark shade for warm skin tones like mine.
  • Formula: The formula is good but I feel the consistency is thick. It spreads evenly on nails though. Gives  enough time to work with it and then dries pretty quick. It glides on so smooth with the flat brush provided with the nail polish. It is Enriched with Community Fair Trade marula oil which keeps your nails moisturized.

The Body Shop Colour Crush Nail Polish is 100% vegan and 5 Free Formula (Free of Dibutyl Phthalate, Toluene, Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, and Camphor). Most nail polishes contain these chemicals that can cause health issues over time.

  • Finish: Crimson Kiss has high glossy finish. With two coats of this polish on your nails, it gives you gel like finish. But this shade looked a bit dull on 2nd day onwards. I had Minty Amour, another shade from this line on my nails for a good period of time with the same gel like finish. Looks like finish differs in some shades.
  • Staying power: Staying power is just ok. It was on my nails for four days and then started to wear off around the edges. I came across some reviews mentioning it stains the nails after removal. I did not notice any staining. I generally use a base coat before applying any polish to prevent staining.
  • Where to buy: You can buy this nail polish in The Body Shop stores or on their website.

  1. Hey,
    I love women who have their nails painted nicely. This color looks awesome. Might have to get my girlfriend to look at this post! I’m sure she’d love it.

  2. I too love dark colours! This colour you have here is quite nice, I’m glad you mentioned this Body Shop nail polish had “harmful” ingredients because this is a concern of mine. I don’t have any nail polish from this brand but will try in the future. Do you know of any other brands who keep these ingredients out their formula? I don’t do my nails very often but I’d like to skip these health concerns.

    Hi Demi,

    Very nice article, I love the color of the polish , I definitely should try this on!
    I think it’s an art, all the beautiful designs on nails are just a amazing!!

    Thank you for this great blog

  4. hi demi
    I really like the sheen and gloss of this crimson polish! What’s the point of a polish if it has no sheen right? I also like that it has a gel like finish and texture it seems. Wearing dark polish on my finger nails is basically impossible though. it usually chips within one day! So I guess that’s why I wear shellac 🙂

    1. I agree with your point on not wearing dark polish. On a lighter note, don’t you think its worth to wear a glossy sheen polish, even for a few days? 🙂

  5. Hey Demi,
    I love this color, Crimson kiss! It is just beautiful. I wanted to tell you that I was having an activity with the youth at church several weeks ago. We had a spa night where we did our nails and toes. I used some of your advice and we all had really nice nails for over a week. The base coat is so much more important than I ever thought. Thank you for your tips!

    1. Thanks Heather. Glad that was of any help! spa..looks like you are having fun at church! 🙂
