Crabtree & Evelyn Orchid, Beauty Berry, Cranberry, Wine

I'll be honest, when I think of Crabtree & Evelyn I don't think nail polish. I got an email asking if I'd like to try out their 2015 Holiday set (sadly received too late so I couldn't get this up sooner!) but I'm pretty surprised! My nail polish ventures just rekindled itself in late 2015 and I feel like I have to relearn how to reapply everything again however I've been buying polishes like mad lately so I've experienced just how important polish formula can be.

They sent me four shades:
Orchid - a deep lavender purple shade
Beautyberry - a pink-red shade
Cranberry - a crimson red shade
Wine - a deep red shade

One coat, no top coat

What I'm most shocked at is how shiny these polishes are with one coat. Whaaat! Wine and Orchid apply the best in my opinion, they're both opaque and shiny right off the bat whereas Cranberry and Beauty Berry need at least two coats to achieve the same results.

How long did the last? I didn't apply a top coat to really test them out and they lasted 3 days before I started seeing chips. This is actually really good for me because I'm constantly washing and using my hands!

I'm impressed, I'll definitely start thinking of them as more than a lotion company now! I've already seen other colours I'm now eyeing..

So tell me,  have you tried any of their polishes??
