Butter London Nail Foundation Base Coat

I am bloody awful at doing my nails. I have shaky hands, no patience, and drip the polish everywhere. But I hate getting manicures even more, so from time to time I am forced to do the painting myself. Usually when I realise my hands are going to appear on film, and the pending embarrassment caused by my scaly claws becomes over-powering.

So I have assembled a group of products that make the whole task simpler. I’ve discovered that a good base coat makes the whole exercise a lot simpler, and I particularly like Butter London’s Nail Foundation Flawless Basecoat. They promise that it gives a “matte, smooth and silky finish on your nails, whilst also hiding any tiny ridges or imperfections in your nails”, and it does exactly that.

It’s also stain-resistant, so you don’t get colour seeping into the nail, and in a fix it works just fine on its own, making unvarnished nails look a little more groomed.

Given that keratin is porous, it’s good to know too that it is formulated without parabens, formaldehyde, toluene and DBP.

Great review!! It’s my pet hate that my nails can stain in summer when I wear brighter polishes so this is a must buy!
