Hi Beauties 🙂 Welcome to BeautifulHamesha. How are you all doing? I am back with another review post – Lakme True Wear Color Crush 02 and 08 Review. Summers are setting in different parts now and forcing us to use Fans and ACs deligently. Down south its in full swing and we prefer staying indoors during the day. The use of sunscreens, sun glasses and umbrellas are in full swing to protect the skin from sun’s damages. And I use Sundays to do all the skin therapy of facials, scrubs and masks to get over the skins damages that has happened over the week and to prepare it for the upcoming week. In other words, Sunday is my beauty therapy day if I am at home 🙂 One process that I have been following diligently for years now is to apply fresh nail polish every Sunday. That way I get to use every nail polish that I own and also get a fresh look for my nail every week.
It also gives me ample time to do any nail art if I desire to do. Today I am going to review two such nail polishes from Lakme Color Crush range. They are Lakme True Wear Color Crush 02 and 08. Its been in the market for quite some time and has faired quite well. Lakme True Wear Color Crush 02 is a beautiful cobalt blue color while Lakme True Wear Color Crush 08 is pure white. They are semi glossy or almost matte finish types according to me. Scroll down and read my Lakme True Wear Color Crush 02 and 08 Review to know more.

My experience with Lakme True Wear Color Crush 02 and 08
Let me start with the one I love the most of the two shades. Yes you guessed it right, its the Lakme True Wear Color Crush 02 which is the blue shade. The nail color comes in a square glass bottle which makes the color visible and has a silver colored square cap with the number of the shade printed on the top. I personally like square caps as I find they have a better grip as compared to the round ones. The brush is a long one with neat soft bristles. Its quite broad and helps in easy application. The blue color is actually a cobalt blue one. The consistency is quite thick and a single swipe gives a good opaque finish to the nails. The finish is semi glossy which looks matte after few hours of application. I generally prefer two quotes of the nail color for the richness it offers. The color dries quickly and stays put for 4-5 days without getting chipped. It however stays longer when applied with a top coat.
The next color is Lakme True Wear Color Crush 08. I picked up with color with lots of expectations. While the packing of this one is the same as the blue one. The consistency of the color is thinner and hence when a single coat is applied it gives a sheer white coat to the nails. One needs to be careful to let the first shade dry completely before applying the consequent layer of shades or be prepared to get a messy finish. It is not an opaque color and if one desires to get it out of this bottle at least 3-4 coats will be required. It however is an excellent base shade for any glittery top coat or nail art. It chips very easily with in a couple of days thus making a top coat mandatory. I use a glittery coat myself as shown in the pic and it lasts easily for more than a week making my nails beautiful too.
Overall, Lakme True Wear Color Crush 02 is a beautiful cobalt blue shade and is a must have for all blue lovers. It is definite to pull up the spirits even on a Monday morning. While Lakme True Wear Color Crush 08 is a plane white shade which is sheer one and looks nice with a top coat. Both are long lasting with top coats.
