Butter London Handbag Holiday Cuticle Oil


 A tropical paradise...

If you're having one of those, "I really want to buy myself a new beauty product but don't feel I can justify it" kind of days, then I have the perfect thing for you!
Butter London is a brand which has been making a serious name for itself over the last few years as a leading light in ethical, safe nail varnish. I'd never used a nail oil before, but as my nails have been looking horribly neglected of late I figured it was time to start!
The oil comes in a bottle exactly like the brand use for their nail varnish, with two caps. I'm not entirely sure if that's added protection against leakage in your handbag or it's simply a design feature, but it works on both counts!
 

When you unscrew the inner cap you'll find it contains a brush, just like a nail varnish. This is a great feature; not only does it distribute the oil evenly across each nail with one sweep, but it makes it almost impossible overapply and spill oil everywhere. I've used this quite a few times now and I've never spilled a drop. Obviously, the idea of this product is that you can carry it around with you and use it on the go. I'll admit, I don't actually use it when I'm out and about; I tend to apply it before I paint my nails as a pre-treatment which I leave on for as long as possible before washing off. It really rehydrates dry nails, helping soften your cuticles so you can push them back painlessly.


I have to say, though, the absolute best thing about this is the heavenly coconut and pineapple scent, which makes you feel like you're on a tropical beach...even if you're actually sitting at a desk in your office!

So, if you're in need of a pre-payday pick-me-up, this is a great contender. I got mine here; with the 10% off treat code it'll work out at a little over £10.

How are your nails looking right now? Are there any treatments you love that you'd recommend?
