Recently I was introduced to a new nail polish brand (new to me at least), Londontown USA. Don’t let the name fool you because in addition to the United States and Canada, Londontown USA also ships their luxury treatment-infused ‘KURS’ to Germany, France, and the United Kingdom (yippee!).
Smudge Free Manicures?
The first product that I tried out is Londontown USA’s new KUR: INSTANT SMUDGE FIX. When I first heard about it, I was intrigued by the name in itself. Claiming to ‘instantly smooth nail polish leaving a flawless finish’, I have to admit, at first I was skeptical.
Do you ever polish your nails, get up too quickly and nick one of your fresh manicure? I don’t know about you, but I do this all the time. Taking off the nail polish and starting over is frustrating and time consuming and this is where Smudge Fix comes in.
Like I said, I was dubious at first, but I’ve tried it out and it’s really neat! It’s much thinner than a topcoat and applying one or two strokes to a fresh smudge helps smooth the existing polish on your nail. It’s definitely not like doing a completely new manicure, but it’s pretty close and it’s a HUGE time savour. For only $14 USD, I think Smudge Fix is perfect for anyone who is usually in a rush when they do their nails (ummm all of us?).
FALL/WINTER 2015-2016 KURS
I had so much fun pairing the 4 KURS from the Londontown USA fall/winter collection with my new rings from Stella & Dot! If you missed my earlier post, ‘m working with a really chic and trendy jewelry company Stella & Dot to offer my readers some of my favourite jewelry (because in addition to beauty products, I’m a serious jewelry junkie!).
