Our Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer loves your skin, and it’s good for the environment, too! At butter LONDON, we aren’t just cheeky and fearless, we’re also an industry leader in clean beauty. Want to make the switch to products that help beautify the planet while they beautify you? Here are some tips from butter LONDON on how to celebrate Earth Day by cleaning up your beauty routines.  

Check Out Those Expiration Dates!

Got some nail lacquers that remember Ben and Jen’s *first* engagement? Do some Spring cleaning in your nail lacquer collection and cull the colours that are past their expiration dates. Nail lacquer typically keeps for about two years, but it can dry out and be tough to apply if it hasn’t been closed tightly. After you toss your toddler-aged nail lacquers, check your beauty and skin care products for a little open cream jar with a tiny number in the middle—that’s the expiration date. Here are some useful rules of thumb when it comes to products for your eyes, face, and lips:

Keep it Clean with Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer!

Love the Earth by loving your skin with butter LONDON’s 10-Free nail lacquer !

Being kind to the Earth means being kind to its creatures, too. butter LONDON’s Patent Shine 10X nail lacquer formula is always vegan and always cruelty free.

Be a Multitasking Maven!

A sustainable beauty routine is a multitasking beauty routine! Investing in beauty products that have more than one trick up their sleeve can help cut down on waste. Try 2-in-1 Plush Rush Blush & Lip! This mistake-proof multitasking stick is made with skin-conditioning Mango and Shea Butter to give cheeks and lips a dreamy, natural-looking monochromatic look with a decadent Champagne scent.

Upcycle What You Can, When You Can!

You and your butter LONDON nail lacquer have had the time of your lives together—don’t let it stop just because the bottle is empty! Give your pretty packaging a second life as a travel-size container of polish remover, a ring holder, or a teensy flower vase to brighten up your space.
