Crabtree & Evelyn, who we love for helping to keep our hands looking and feeling wonderful, has now taken that a step further and introduced new Nail Lacquers! I’ve been a Crabtree & Evelyn fan for years, so I was excited to be able to preview the new line. Read on for more…
The Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer Collection includes 21 gorgeous colours, from neutrals to lights and darks to brights. The colours I tried have good pigmentation, applied beautifully with a nice, manageable brush, dry fast and are formulated without the toxic chemicals sometimes found in nail polish. I also love the chic, square bottle.
I tried 3 shades including Pomegranate (above, a sophisticated deep red), Mica (charcoal with a touch of silvery shimmer) and Blueberry (deep blue accented with sapphire shimmer). I selected the Pomegranate to swatch, because the color was just so striking. I really like the formula; it’s chip resistant with only minimal wear on the tips. I will definitely buy more colors, especially Clementine (above, creamy orange with subtle shimmer), Raspberry (above, deep pink creme) and Pistachio (glistening green with shimmer) for summer. Nail Polish Remover Wipes ($4.95) are also available.
To keep hands moisturized, I love the new Tarocco Orange, Eucalyptus & Sage Hand Therapy. This thick, luxe hand creme is super-hydrating with shea butter, moisturising macadamia nut oil and myrrh extract to help condition cuticles and nails. It’s lightly scented with citrusy Tarocco blood orange and herbal Sage and Eucalyptus.
