Crabtree & Evelyn Launch a Nail Polish line!

Orange juice and toothpaste, a vegan at a BBQ, Miley Cyrus and a touch of class. Some things just don’t seem to want to go together do they?

Crabtree & Evelyn and nail polish?

Hmmm…

To be honest, I always think of Crabtree & Evelyn as a bit of a nanna-brand, aimed at garden potterers and people who use talc.  What are they doing with a new line of fashion-forward nail lacquers anyway?  Does it fit their target demographic?

Well, whatever they’re doing with it… it’s here. Launched this week into stores nationwide. Let’s have a look at them…

Not too shabby, I think you’ll agree.  Don’t underestimate those Crabtree & Evelyn shoppers, Nanna’s everywhere have their fingers firmly on the pulse it seems.

The range includes a total of 19 polishes, I’m missing a few from the pictures above… including a rather fabulous-looking olive green that I’d really like to check out sooner rather than later.  Also, in the lineup (but omitted from my picture) is a clear top/base coat, and a box of nail polish remover wipes that have been formulated with an environmentally friendly soy-based formula instead of your usual hydrocarbon solvents!  All rather innovative stuff from a brand that, to be honest, I didn’t think had it in them.

By now, you will be whooping with delight when I tell you that all of these lacquers are formulated without camphor, dibutyl phthalates, formaldehyde or toluene, and get this…

…each 15ml bottle is priced at only £6.00 each.

Available instore and online at crabtree-evelyn.co.uk now, made my weekend this has!

    These are available at C&E here in the U.S. I’m so excited, as there are eleven shades that I would like to try. Thanks for bringing these to my attention. I hope the formula applies smoothly and lasts.

    I picked the gold and black cherry colours up recently after a visit to their London Store, and my I am impressed! They give such a glossy finish. They will be featuring permanently in my makeup bag from now on!

    Thanks for bringing these to my attention! I look forward to more of your posts.

    I bought 3 polishes from their line today. Gold, Sand, and Clementine from one of the outlet stores. They were on clearance included in a left over holiday set. As a huge polish lover and collector I had held off on buying polish from this line only because I already have colors so similar but it was such a bargain I couldn’t pass it up. I swatched all 3 and chose to wear sand. It is a stunning neutral and goes great with the lilac colored zoya polish I am wearing on my accent nail. It did take 3 coats to become completely opaque but so did the zoya polish. The polish dried quickly using thin coats. overall I am impressed by the quality and look forward to buying more.

    As far as Crabtree & Evelyn as a brand I am not shocked at all at the quality. I too had written them off long ago as being a bit pricey and aimed at an older demographic. But do not pass them up! Since trying many of their products, about 2 years ago, I have become obsessed and visit the outlets whenever I’m in the area. They have the best, and I mean the BEST, anti-bacterial hand gel. I won’t use any other. Their powders are talc-free as talc is a pretty nasty ingredient. The jojoba oil lotion is also great and gender neutral. They offer a lot of great stuff so please do not write them off as a nana brand.
