I was intrigued when I came across this nail care product from Butter London. Foundation? For your nails? I was well and truly bemused. Upon further investigation I found it was in fact a base coat. Designed to prep and prime your nails for any colour and texture, this nude coloured formula gives a matte finish which enables your polish to glide on effortlessly.
The bottle says you can wear this alone but it’s a little too sheer for my liking. I prefer my nails to look a little more ‘done’ whereas this gives a natural look with a dull shine and barely any colour coverage. It’s such a good idea to compare the product foundation as it essentially does the same job, just not on your face.
My manicure lasts a lot longer when I use this base coat, which is now religiously as I won’t paint my nails without it. I’ve not experienced any discolouration or stains since using it and I’ve put a lot of deep, dark colours to the test. Even my navy blue didn’t stand a chance. I am very impressed.
