Nail Polish Find - Crabtree & Evelyn Nud-est Nail Lacquer Collection

Last week I shared with you the latest nude lipstick line I love (Click here to read it if you haven't seen it!).
Today I want to introduce you to a lovely nude nail polish line, Crabtree & Evelyn Nud-est Nail Lacquer Collection.  These shades are not only perfect taking a break from bold brights for summer, but will all transitional easily into Fall.
From L to R: Alabaster, Peaches and Cream, Almond, Mocha
There are four shades in the collection, with Almond (shown, at the top) being the one I loved the most.  For me, Almond is the perfect nude for nails where you want the shade to most closely resemble your actual nail bed - enhancing them, yet still looking natural.  

All the shades look great on a wide variety of skin tones as well - they either compliment skin or the natural nail bed shade very well.
Almond is an opaque beige with the perfect blend of cream/light brown/pink in the base.  There is no shimmer, glitter or metallic finish.  With two coats I got the exact shade in the bottle, with full shine. With an application of top coat every few days, I got 5+ days of wear before chipping.
Another beautiful shade in the collection is Peaches and Cream (shown, above).  This is a great color for when you want a peachy-pink with a bit more dimension, given its light shimmer 
(seen mostly in sunlight).  The other two shades are Mocha, a cool mocha brown with platinum shimmer and Alabaster, a classic creamy opaque ivory.

Since these are such a great buy, try mixing/matching them.  For example, adding a coat of Peaches and Cream atop Alabaster for a neutral shimmer effect - or just mix and match between fingers and toes for a refreshing, neutral summer look.  I liked Almond on my nails and Peaches and Cream or Mocha on my toes. - RLB

Love these nudes! Didn't know that Crabtree + Evelyn got into nail polishes. I'll have to try the out for myself now. Could you also review Vain Pursuits btw? I'd love to hear what you have to say!
