butter-london-manicure-set

I already love Butter London nail polish, so getting this set wasn’t about knowing how the polish went on and how long it lasted. I really wanted to know what this new “Waterless” Manicure was all about. I was also excited to try out some of Butter London’s other nail products.

Butter London’s Waterless Manicure System is a 7-piece kit for those just starting to give themselves manicures at home. Honestly, I’m not sure what “starters” they mean. Girls start playing with nail polish at a young age. I think this set is more a stepping stone into full on nail enthusiast.

The person who will appreciate this kit most is someone who knows the salon manicure process well, but doesn’t necessarily enjoy it. The idea behind the waterless manicure is that the soaking and cutting of your cuticles may not be that great for your nails and your manicure. Since I’m not professionally trained, I can’t speak to that. I do know that when I am at home, there is no chance that I’m going to be getting out a bowl of water to soak my hands in. That is too much work!

This kit includes Melt Away Cuticle Exfoliator, a nail file, Scrubbers 2-in-1 Prep & Remover Wipes, Nail Foundation Priming Basecoat, Hardwear Shine UV Topcoat and one small bottle of Butter London Nail Polish in Trout Pout pink. I wasn’t crazy about the colour, but it’s spring, so it’s time to get back into pretty pinks!

The steps are pretty simple. Walking through the instructions, I’m not sure what makes this so different from most other at-home manicures. The cuticle exfoliator may be a new step for beginners, but those of us who are well versed in nail products will be very comfortable with the steps.

I am so impressed by the other nail products from Butter London. The Scrubbers get all of the grime off your nails in a swipe. I didn’t even know my nails felt dirty until I knew what they like clean. You can get them on their own and I am going to be investing in a LOT. I am obsessed. The basecoat is also amazing. It gives your nails a quick dry matte finish. You can feel how this is going to help your polish stay put!

If you are thinking about making the plunge into a nail obsession this kit is a great way to get your feet wet. If you are already crazy about nail polish, I recommend finding the individual pieces that you want to try and investing in those. Either way, you are bound to find something you love.
