    Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

    I like to use it with Essie gel underneath makes for the perfect long lasting color. I'm hard on my nails, regular polish lasts me less than 1 day. And the evening of the fourth day I only have 1 small chip on each index finger.

              Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

              This is a great product, healthy for your nails. The best part of it is that the formula remains true until the last drop. Other polishes when you get half way done with them, they get clumpy or thick and are hard to use. This formula doesn't change and that's what makes it a great value.

                Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

                The only way I can use any nail polish, is to get it professionally done. The nail tech had a hard time applying so that says a lot to me about the product. It is a pretty color once you get all the coats on though.

                Comments about Butter London Nail Lacquer:

                I have bad nails, they chip and peel and have bad ridges that make it impossible to go natural, EVER. They split and grab my hair in the shower. Even shellac doesn't seem to do the trick and is expensive. This, so far, has done a great job. Just as good as shellac and I apply myself, take off myself and save lots of money.
