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

Happy Monday all! I’m feeling pretty optimistic about the new week. But in case you are suffering from Monday moodiness, might I recommend treating yourself to a manicure. Or perhaps a new polish.

Because you can never have EVERY color you might need. 

                    

On my quest to find polish that almost never chips, I have become another step leap closer. It’s called SinfulShine from the SinfulColors collection, with gel tech(nology). Consider this your at home alternative to the Gelish manicure, minus mini UV ray machine.

The new SinfulShine collection lives up to its name. The polish is impeccably shiny - even without top coat. And it can be worn for about a week with minimal to no chippage. ! Depending on your preference, one coat is sufficient. If that makes you feel a little iffy, two works great as well.

For optimal results, make sure you take about 10 minutes in between coats. I advise not falling asleep with your hands under a pillow soon after drying. You will wake up with a textured mani. 

Rookie mistake. 

Does This: Leaves nails super shiny and chip-free
Is This: SinfulShine Gel Tech by SinfulColor Professionals
Get This: Your local Walgreens
Price: $2.99 (!!)
