Yes that’s correct – I just discovered that Crabtree & Evelyn do nail colours! They had a 3 for 2 offer and I was impressed by the opacity and quick drying time so I simply could not resist.
Following testing the Gardener’s hand scrub and receiving a hand massage using the Gardener’s hand cream, I still resolved to buy some nail polish. There is a good range to choose from. The sales person told me that it’s just like Shellac which I didn’t believe because if I could get a 2 week manicure without the Shellac process, Shellac would go out of business, but I thought maybe he meant the colours are hi-shine and relatively long lasting compared with other nail polish.
I tested a few colours in the shop so I ended up with a ridiculous looking manicure! I tried Pistachio, an amazing metallic green but it was too optimistic looking for now and totally clashed with the weather! I’ll get it in summer.
I eventually settled on Clear/Crystal to use as a base coat and top coat to get the full Crabtree & Evelyn experience, Mica – a metallic grey and Avocado – metallic olive green.
And I only went in because of the hand cream amnesty!
