You get home from a long day of work, having barely made your 8 pm spinning class. The clock’s approaching 9 and you still have to eat. You throw together a random concoction of whatever you can scrounge up in your kitchen and as you catch up on Facebook posts you realize, you’re not quite ready for bed yet. Your nails are a mess, and as a self proclaimed manicure addict, you can’t possibly go to work with the chips you’re sporting. So here’s a quick fix when you’re stuck in just such a predicament.
Butter London makes a fabulous base coat called Nail Foundation that acts how it sounds. It’s foundation for your nails (but far more sheer than RGB X Hipp: which happens to be another must-have collection). It creates the perfect base for any manicure but is especially perfect for this one. The best part? It practically dries the second you are done. Use three coats for the best coverage. Top it off with Butter London’s equally quick-drying Hardwear P.D. Quick Topcoat. You’re almost there!
Dust a layer of OPI’s Flurry Up! just above your cuticle line, covering the bottom half of your nail, and leaving the top clean.
Voila! Now you can start your day looking like you’re a lady of leisure who had time for a 2 hour mani with nail art. It’ll be our little secret.
Nancy is a fashion publicist by day and self-proclaimed beauty addict by night (well, shopping addict in general). A secret not well masked by the shelves of nail polish lining her bathroom wall, the overflowing coat rack of bags, her crowded coat closet and carefully arranged stacks of shoe boxes. Always plotting her next big splurge, the only thing she loves more than shopping is food. So she couldn’t be in a better city than NY, where her shopping list is only matched by her ever-growing list of must-visit eateries.
