I know, nail polish isn’t for the face, but it is part of our beauty routine. I had never thought about nail polish and animal testing, and I did not know how many bad ingredients are in drugstore brands. Now I know, and I shop for nail polish very differently than I used to.
If you aren’t familiar with butter London, they started in nail polish and expanded into cosmetics. Here’s some of their story from their About Us…
“We are butter LONDON the bon vivants of beauty…cultured, confident, expertly curated, divinely distinctive, and authentically inclusive.”
“Here’s the clincher… butter LONDON is an American brand. Yep. Infinitely inspired (and a ‘lil obsessed) with rebellious British creativity and the allure of LONDON-in all its energizing, eclectic, eccentric, glamorous glory. Doesn’t everything sounds better with a British accent? We bring you imaginative London-inspired luxury (so you can skip the 14 hour flight).”
“By the by, we love demanding darlings who insist on color without compromise. butter LONDON is luxe you can trust. Only the best for the best, expect nothing less.”

Nail Polish that doesn’t harm your nails?
I love the cheeky spirit of this company plus, their nail colors are fantastic. What’s better is that it doesn’t include Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, DBP, Toluene, Camphor, Ethyl Tosylamide, Xylene or TPHP, yup I don’t want that. Makes me cringe that when my daughter was small and I’d occasionally let her have painted nails and those were the ingredients, yeeesh!
10X nail Lacquer colors range from Piece of Cake, an opaque light pink to Earl Grey, an almost black and every shade in between. There is a reason this has a cult-like following. Great color, 10-day wear with a gel-like finish, it’s fade resistant and most importantly contains Bamboo extract which helps to promote strong nails and prevent breakage and peeling.
Don’t forget to check out the Trend line. The colors are WOW! Instead of Bamboo extract, this line contains Hydrolyzed Silk, Horsetail Extract, Vitamins B, C, and E to promote strong and healthy nails. It is high pigment for one-stroke coverage, quick-drying, high gloss and chip resistant.

Polish lovers are downright giddy over this. Glitter nail polish that you can easily peel-off without scrubbing your nails with harsh acetone and leaving behind stubborn sparkly leftovers. This is the no-fuss, no mess glitter polish you?ve been waiting for in 6 glitterific shades.

Pure Cure Manicure System
Love your gel manicures but hate what it does to your nails when it’s scraped off? I feel your pain. I completely destroyed my nail beds and had to let them grow out completely. I haven’t been back to gel since. This could very well be the answer you’re looking for too! It’s called Pure Cure Manicure. It gives a glossy cushion finish, fills in ridges and doesn’t stain your nails. It’s applied similarly to gloss but instead of UV light it uses LED (better for your skin) and when you want to take it off…..a quick soak in water, and it peels off. Don’t worry it doesn’t fall off after a bath. Your nails are healthy and happy, no scraping or solvent soaking needed. The starter kit comes with everything you need to give yourself a beautiful manicure and remove it. Amazing!
A full line of treatments from cuticles to nail strengtheners. the unique Nail Tinted moisturizer, it’s brilliant. It contains Vitamin E, Tea Tree Oil (to revitalize brittle nails), Keratin (helps strengthen nails) and Arginine (helps prevent nail breakage). The reviews say it may be a bit too yellow based for some skin types so keep that in mind when choosing your color.
Find Your Savings on butterLondon
One of the best things about butterLondon is the sales but, you’ve got to shop carefully. Not all discounts and coupons apply in Canada and sometimes deals come and go quickly. I do my best to keep up with the happenings on the Monthly Specials page. Make sure you look there before you shop!!
