Now that I’ve suddenly on a whim decided I can be the next Van Gogh of the nail art world, I’m investing a lot of time and effort into home manicures – you know, practice makes perfect (and plus I can’t quite sit still when I’m watching my dramas / movies – I must multi-task!).
Crabtree & Evelyn is usually known for its bath & body stuff as well as its home fragrances, but now, they’ve branched out into nail colours (and skincare!). It’s perfect timing I tell you – the stars (and R&D dept of Crabtree) are aligning to match my current nail craze -maniacal diabolical laughter-
Crabtree & Evelyn’s Nail Polish Remover Wipes are said to have replaced highly damaging hydrocarbon solvents with a gentler, soy-based formula and also contain nourishing oils and moisturisers to help condition nails and cuticles.
Now even though the sheet itself isn’t soaked and dripping in remover, it somehow manages to release quite a decent amount of remover onto my fingers, so don’t be touching other things when you’re removing your nail polish, cos you’ll stain your stuff.
Now this shade is clearly not to be used on its own (see my middle finger). Instead, I layered (from L-R) on white, pastel lilac, and black. I think the best effect will be on black, cos it creates the whole galaxy constellation feel. The polish dries fast (thankfully), and surprisingly isn’t a pain to remove – yes, glitter polishes are always amazingly and stubbornly resistant to removal.
Overall, it’s not a bad range to try out – I’d recommend the coral shade as well as the deep rich purple-blue that I have my eyes on. 😀
