Welcome to the last day of Treatment Tea Time with butter LONDON. Today we are spilling the very last drop of tips and tricks to help make your at-home waterless manicure last longer!

Just because you can’t pop into your local nail salon doesn’t mean you can’t achieve a salon-worthy manicure that lasts. With all the work our hands put in, butter LONDON understands the appeal of a manicure that aims to withstand handwashing, meal prepping, and daily cleaning—which is why we’ve made it our mission to create brilliant nail lacquers and nail treatments that are anything but ordinary. If you want to know our secret to a longwear, chip-resistant waterless manicure that can be achieved from the comfort of home, check out our recommendations below:

Choose a Polish with a Gel-like Finish

While typical nail polishes might chip, flake or peel after one-day wear, our butter LONDON Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer collection is formulated with good-for-nail ingredients that truly shine. Featuring Diamond Powder, UV Absorbers, and a Shock Resistant Polymer Technology, our nail lacquer delivers a gel-like finish and high-gloss shine that lasts up to 10 days. No need for a dip powder or LED light here, because this radiance curing nail polish easily dries and hardens in natural light, allowing you to easily achieve a chip-resistant, long wear manicure right at home.

Speed Up Dry Time with Quick Dry Conditioning Drops

Have you ever proudly completed an at-home manicure only to look down an hour later and find a dozen air bubbles sitting on the surface? Many things can cause air bubbles to form on your nails, including the way you choose to dry them. Sure, shaking your hands in the air and blowing on your nails might speed up dry time, but these methods can also lead to a lumpy manicure that peels or cracks within a few days. Help make your manicure last and accelerate dry time the BETTER way with the help of the butter LONDON P.D. Quick Dry Conditioning Drops. This innovative dry oil serum is formulated with Rose Seed Hip Oil to help strengthen and nourish cuticles while accelerating your nail lacquer dry time. Simply dispense two drops on each nail, allow it to evaporate, and quickly get back to your day!

Restore Your Mani with a Top Coat and Cuticle Balm

Don’t put away your protective top coat and cuticle care just yet, because these multi-tasking nail products go beyond a good nail prep and polish. If you really want to make your at-home waterless manicure last longer, continue applying our best-selling butter LONDON Hardwear Shine UV Top coat and Quickfix Moisturizing Cuticle Balm to your nails and cuticles, as needed. The high-performance top coat will act as a barrier for your nails by sealing in your nail polish colors, while our Quickfix Moisturizing Cuticle Balm helps keep cuticles hydrated, strong and nourished. Easily store these products in your nightstand or add them into your morning routine for a quick pick-me-up that will keep nails looking refreshed and help your at-home waterless manicure last longer. And that’s the tea!
