Crabtree & Evelyn Black Tulip

Crabtree & Evelyn Black Tulip coverI introduce you to the reason I had to try Crabtree & Evelyn nail polishes; Black Tulip. I saw the promo image for this polish and HAD to have it. I was persistent and I’m glad I was. Black Tulip did not disappoint!

Crabtree & Evelyn’s description of Black Tulip is truly a work of art:

A budding hint of colour or a rich shade in full bloom – the choice is yours with our Black Tulip nail lacquer. With each additional coat, this translucent base with shimmering purple sparkles deepens on its way to the strikingly opulent purple shade of its namesake flower.

I don’t think I can top that but I will try! Black Tulip is a deep purple packed with serious shimmer. It is on the sheer side though not difficult to work with. I used four coats in my swatches and loved how it turned out. With each addition coat the polish showed more depth.

This polish is straight up gorgeous. I’m so happy it is part of my collection! I want to try it over Crabtree & Evelyn Eggplant!

Crabtree & Evelyn polishes are available from, at Lord & Taylor and on Amazon. They can also be purchased from the Crabtree & Evelyn website where they are currently running a special on their polishes; 3 for $12.

Make sure to check out the swatches under the jump. The pictures I took in the sun are AMAZING!
