Hello friends! Today I have swatches and some simple nail art for you, from a new-to-my-blog brand, Londontown Lakur! They have sent me four polishes for me to show you today! They asked me what colors I like, and I responded that I am currently loving neutrals, but my favorite color is blue... and I really fell in love with all the colors they sent me. I didn't have anything similar in creams to the three neutral polishes they sent me so I was happy to see these colors.
I would also like to say that they sent me their Protective Top Coat and Instant Smudge Fix from their kur: nail treatment line. I will discuss the top coat here, since I used it with these polishes, but I am saving the Instant Smudge Fix for another post, as I am planning on sharing a demonstration video ;).
So, their nail lacquers are described as:
The bottles come in 12 mL, so it's a bit less that the 15 mL that I believe is standard, but still is a good amount. The brushes are thin.
All swatches are topped with their Protective Top Coat. This top coat is quick drying, but it is a bit thick. It is not thick that it is goopy, sticky, or unworkable. It goes on pretty smoothly, actually, and it dries very glossy. I look forward to trying it with chunky, or bumpy glitters to see how it smooths them over. I will probably also show this demo with the next review, so please look out for it :).
Londontown Lakur: Chimes of the City
This is a light camel brown cream with a slight yellow undertone. The polish looks slightly more yellow in the photo than it is in person. Formula was easy to apply. Dry time was about 3 minutes per layer. Polish dries shiny, but I recommend top coat for full glossy effect. Shown is two thin coats plus top coat.
Londontown Lakur: Foglifter
This is what I would call a camouflage brown cream with a grey undertone. I really, really loved this color. This was the best formula for me from the three cream polishes. It was only slightly thinner than the previous one, went on very smoothly, and dried a bit faster than the previous one. Also dried very shiny on its own, but the top coat makes it glossy. Shown is two thin coats plus top coat.
Londontown Lakur: Mauve Over
Oh gosh... it only gets better with these cream polishes!! This is a dusty rose cream polish that is probably my favorite shade of pink ever. Formula was the same as the first one, and dry time was about 3 minutes with each layer. Also dries shiny. Shown is two thin coats plus top coat. I think this color is the equivalent of what Kylie Jenner wears on her lips... or at least wore on her lips during the Spring time. I REALLY want a lip stick in this shade!
I am so giddy to shoe you this mani... I mean, look at this color mattified!!! I am sorry but I am obsessed. I also used Mauve Over to make the roses.
Londontown Lakur: Beau Of The City
This is a royal blue jelly polish! The formula for this jelly polish was thin. If you put too much on your nail, you will get slight pooling while you wait for it to dry. Dry time was about 2 minutes between layers. I did 3 coats plus top coat for this swatch. My nail line is more visible on this picture than it was in person. The lighting on here just makes the nail line pop, but in person you can barely see it. It is easy for me to say that I love this color. This polish dried very glossy on its own, but I still applied top coat for the photos.
I really wanted to try to pair this nail art with this color from a mani I saw @missgoob's IG years ago. I used ILNP Electric Carnival and Sinful Colors Nail Junkie for the glitter accent. For the gold accent I used OPI Comet Closer as my base.
And here's the closeup of that glitter magic!
If you have ILNP Electric Carnival and Sinful Colors Nail Junkie, you just HAVE to pair them up! It's such a beautiful combination... at least over this blue polish it was.
As far as the wear on the polishes, I was not able to test the wear, since I only wore them to swatch, then removed and went on to the next polish. Will probably try to include that in the video as well.
I hope you enjoyed this post. Thank you so much for reading!
