Keeping digits polished is a must..
Let’s not forget about keeping them healthy too.


LONDONTOWN was created to support healthy nails. The formulas combine nail care science with nourishing and restorative properties. There are two parts —>

Lakur(s): color
Kur(s): top coats, base coats, nail hardener, drying oils, etc.

All of the Lakur’s and Kur’s are “5-Free” (Formaldehyde Free, Toluene-Free, DBP-Free, Formaldehyde resin Free, Camphor-Free). But they are chalked full of minerals, essential oils, and extracts that promote health nails! Multitasking at it’s finest. 

Fun side effect of ‘good for you' polish, the Lakur's are so rich with minerals, you only need one coat (though two works too if you prefer). I'm not sure if this is an effect from minerals but the Matte Protective Finish dried almost instantaneously. Which I love. 

Does This: Keeps digits polished and healthy
Is This: LONDONTOWN Lakur and Kurs
Get This: Lakur at B-Glowing, Kur at B-Glowing
Price: Guarded Jewel Lakur (pretty berry color above) $11; Protective Matte Coat $25

Getting caught with bad nails = getting caught sneaking into the fridge, possibly in the nude, definitely with cupcake in hand face.

We’ve all been there. But, best when avoided.


Butter London has a new dual purpose polish that I had to try: Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat.

One coat takes care of the little lines and ridges that occasionally peek through flat polish. And ensures polish will stay put longer. I tried it with the aquatic Thames Nail Lacquer as part of my mermaid alter ego, great look.

Unexpected use two - the basecoat alone works as a polish. It’s a light nude, and it has a gorgeous matte finish. In my opinion this is THE solution to the I-have-20-minutes-and-gross-nails bind (a situation that happens all to often).

QUICK TIP: Next time after painting your nails, run your hands under cold water. It helps the polish set, removes bubbles, and makes things extra shiny. 

Does This: Smooths ridges, adheres polish, and looks great alone
Is This: Butter London Nail Foundation

I have literally been googling “when will it get warm” … I cannot wait to wear less clothes and white nails (with tan-ish hands).
