Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer in Avocado

This Crabtree & Evelyn Nail Lacquer in Avocado is not currently on the website so I assume it is popular!

To get the full Crabtree & Evelyn benefit, I applied the clear shade as a base coat and top coat as according to the website.  The site says that the nail colours are fast-drying, glossy, and long-lasting if two coats are applied.

Unfortunately I disagree.  In the shop, the nail colour dried quickly over my existing nail polish but when I did the full on manicure, it took a long time to dry – I tried to air dry them out of the car window (yes, that is what you read) but when this failed I sprayed on some Elegant Touch Rapid Dry for Nails. The colour was glossy for a day or two then this faded! As for long lasting, the colour did not last any longer than the other brands I wear.  Taking all this into account, I’m not sure why the shop assistant thinks this is anything like Shellac.

However, I am not deterred,  this is a gorgeous colour – a multi-tonal metallic olive green.  I have no idea why it is called Avocado – the name is completely detached from the colour.  It complements my skin tone and goes with everything.  It’s easy to apply and the bottles are cute.  Also, they only cost £6.

This colour has now become one of my favourites, and despite what I see as failure on all of the claims, I will go back for more! Next time I wear this I’ll stick to my usual OPI Nail Envy and quick dry topcoat combination!
