  • The product comes in a transparent glass-bottle that has a silver cap made up of plastic
  • The shade can be easily identified if we have more than one shade from the Colour Crush nail paint collection
  • The details such as shade name,number,quantity,shelf-life are mentioned on the bottle
  • I like the packaging and its's sturdy,compact plus travel-friendly
  • The applicator-brush attached to the cap is a flat one
  • The length of the applicator-wand is a little shorter than the usual wands
  • The silver-coloured cap of the bottle comes in very handy and gives control to the user while applying the product on the nails

Formula & Texture:
  • The formula is not very runny or thin.I actually like the consistency of the product.
  • Product is very pigmented and gives full coverage to the nails in two coats.Do not layer up the nail-polish it will start looking patchy and gloopy on the nails
  • The formula is nice and the nail-paint has a satin and elegant-looking finish
The nail-polish lasted for about five days straight.After that it started chipping off from the tip of the nails slightly.Glossiness of the nail paint was still there intact(98%) even after five days.Of course the sheen had faded(2%) just a little bit after five days ,but, nothing to bother as such.I am happy with the formula of the nail-polish.


Will I re-purchase?

Overall,I really love the shade Apricot Kiss and I suggest that you check out the entire shade-range of Colour Crush nail polishes as they have everything ranging from the nudes to the bold greens,pretty pinks to ravishing reds! Vibrant shades...I must say.
