Nail designs are all the rage, but it can be hard to find the time (or the cash) to hit up the local salon for an intricate, professionally applied nail design. This is where butter LONDON comes to the rescue with its latest innovation: stick-on nail skins. Remember the space-age cartoon “The Jetsons”? When the girls put on nail polish, it was applied in an instant and dried just as fast. This is kind of how nail skins work.
As of February 2012, butter LONDON offers three nail skin designs: Leopard, Give & Take and Black Bird. The Leopard nail skin features the traditional animal print, with black spots on a yellowish-tan background. Give & Take is a skin with a beige background color and black letters that spell out the words “give” and “take.” Each letter is on an individual nail, and the extra nails have bird silhouettes. Black Bird has a black background with bright flowers and outlines of butter LONDON’s signature bird.
If the nail skins are too narrow for your fingertips, paint your nails first in a butter LONDON polish that matches the main color. After the polish dries, apply the nail skin and voila! You’re good to go.
First, choose your favorite design (it might be hard to make up your mind). Use nail polish remover to wipe any excess oil off your fingernails. Then press the nail sticker on your nail and cut away the excess material with small manicure scissors or nail clippers. That’s it – you’re done!
Drinking eight cups of water, eating a balanced diet, wearing sunscreen and washing your face at sunup and sundown are the tried-and -true skin care rules passed down throughout the ages. But there is more you can do to care for your skin, and it doesn’t involve purchasing a new cabinet for a plethora of skin creams. The latest skin care secrets come in three small bottles:
Developed by Linda Rodin, Olio Lusso is a face oil made from 11 essential floral and botanical oils, making it a must-have for your home apothecary. Before you dismiss this product because the words “face” and “oil” are together, know that this highly acclaimed skin care product will make your face the opposite of greasy. Instead, using a couple drops after you wash your face will balance your skin tone and leave skin looking radiant.
