NEW from the makers of our favorite nourishing nail treatments, LONDONTOWN has released a line of fabulous nail lakurs! These stylish polishes are formulated using the same restorative nail science LONDONTOWN is famous for.
Starting with 8 shades, 3 staples and 5 seasonal colors, each lakur was inspired by and named after a London mainstay. All polishes are 5-free, vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free, and developed to reinforce nail strength, preventing nails from breaking, cracking, and splitting.
We love how easily lakur applies, and how pigmented and shiny the polishes are after only 1-2 coats. We also appreciate the blend of vitamins and minerals infused into the product, enhancing and healing nails at the same time.
Discover the 8 fun lakurs below!
Chelsea Porcelain (white): Named after England's most distinguished fine porcelain crafters.
Chim Cher-ee (black): An ode to Mary Poppins' Bert profession.
Teatime (nude): Named for the long-standing British tradition.
Thames from the Eye (teal): Namesake is the London Eye, a giant Ferris wheel situated on the banks of River Thames.
Guarded Jewel (ruby red): Inspired by the crown jewels, located in the Tower of London.

You may have come across terms like 3-Free, 4-Free, or 5-Free in the past when shopping for nail polish. But what does that mean? b-glowing.com is here to give you the 411 on what your lacquer is leaving out!
3-Free: When you see 3-Free on a nail polish, it means it is made without the use of: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), or Formaldehyde.
4-Free: When you see 5-Free on a nail polish, it means it is made without the use of: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, or Camphor.
5-Free: When you see 5-Free on a nail polish, it means it is made without the use of: Toluene, Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde, Formaldehyde Resin, or Camphor.
What are these ingredients? Why are they used in the first place?
Toluene: Helps polish go on smoothly. Also found in gasoline, rubber cement, and shoe polish. Inhaling products containing toluene causes light-headedness, nausea and even unconsciousness and sometimes death. It's also linked to developmental damage for pregnant women.
Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP): Prevents your polish from chipping and cracking. Also found in adhesives, printing ink, and plastics. It's been designated a reproductive and developmental toxin.
Formaldehyde: Makes polish tough and resistant. Most commonly found in nail strengtheners, not polish. It's also directly linked to nasal sinus cancer and the development of leukemia.
Formaldehyde Resin: A less toxic version of formaldehyde, this ingredient is still considered a skin allergen that can cause dermatitis.
Camphor: Helps polish adhere to your nails. Also used as a moth repellent, used in the embalming process, and found in fireworks. While it is less hazardous than the "Toxic 3", it does cause skin irritation and is poisonous when ingested in large doses. Nail biters beware!
