Crabtree & Evelyn – Nail Lacquer in Wisteria
This post may contain affiliate links.
OK, so did anyone know that Crabtree & Evelyn did nail polish? No, me neither until I attended their Garden Celebration Blogger Event in York a few weeks ago, and I was lucky enough to receive this Nail Lacquer in Wisteria in my goody bag that evening so I wanted to share it with my readers.
Crabtree & Evelyn offer 21 different shades of Nail Lacquer (all formulated without camphor, dibutyl phthalates, formaldehyde or toluene), plus a wide range of handcare products.
Wisteria is a two-tone shade that looks dark blue in some lights and purple in others and it has a subtle silver shimmer to it. It dries with a bit of a dull finish and maybe looks a little old fashioned when compared to today’s current trend for glossy gel finishes, but you could add a couple of coats of clear polish over the top if you want more of a glossy shine.
The brush is quite long and thin so you have to apply the polish carefully in several strokes, but the coverage is good – in the image above I have applied two coats, but you could probably get away with just one thick coat if you’re in a rush.
I managed to wear Wisteria Nail Lacquer for three days before it started to chip (and that was only when I was doing some gardening!). It does take a little bit of rubbing to remove the Nail Lacquer, but nothing too bad (it’s nowhere near as difficult to remove as glitter polish).
