Achieve Salon-Worthy Nails at Home with Londontown’s Expert Tips

By Shannon Sparks

If you’ve ever attempted a DIY manicure or pedicure at home, you know the struggle — chipped polish, uneven coats, and brittle nails that seem to crack just when you least expect it.

It’s disheartening to spend hours on your nails only to have the polish peel or chip in a day or two. But don’t worry! Londontown provides clean, high-quality products to rescue your nails from disaster, allowing you to achieve salon-quality results at home. They also have a step-by-step process to make sure your nails turn out perfectly.

1. Nail It from the Start

Healthy, clean nails are the key to a stunning manicure, so begin by washing your hands and removing any existing polish with Londontown’s kur nail polish remover. This remover is acetone-free, so it quickly removes old polish without drying out your nails. Once your nails are clean, it’s time to hydrate those cuticles with a nourishing oil that will keep your nails healthy and strong, prevent breakage, and ensure they’re ready for the next steps.

2. Build Your Base

A good base coat is like makeup primer — it creates a smooth surface for your polish and helps prevent staining. While Londontown’s nail polishes contain Florium Complex, a botanical blend that strengthens and moisturizes your nails, a good base coat will still add that extra protection and durability your nails need. Think of it as your insurance policy for a longer-lasting manicure.

3. Find Your Perfect Shade

Choosing a nail color can be overwhelming, but Londontown’s lakur line makes it easy. With over 120 shades, there’s something for everyone. These polishes are vegan, gluten-free, and cruelty-free, so you can enjoy vibrant colors while feeling good about the formula. Whether you prefer classic reds, soft pinks, or bold blues, Londontown has you covered. And if you want something fresh, check out their seasonal collections like Soft Safara — they’re always on trend!

4. Brush on the Magic

Applying nail polish can be tricky, but with the proper technique, you’ll be painting like a pro. The key is to use thin layers and let each coat dry completely before adding the next. Try the three-stroke method: Start in the center, and then fill in on both sides. For a polished finish, don’t forget to “cap” the ends of your nails by lightly brushing the edge. It helps prevent chipping and keeps your manicure looking clean and crisp.

5. Top Coat — The Cherry on Top

If you thought the job was done once the polish was on, think again! A top coat is crucial for locking in your color and adding a shiny (or matte) finish. Londontown’s top coats are fast-drying, reducing wait times and offering long-lasting protection. It’s the difference between a manicure that lasts a day and one that holds up for a week.

6. Mistakes Happen — Don’t Sweat It!

We’ve all been there. Just one stray brushstroke is enough to make many people start over, and a smudge on your nails while they’re drying might make you feel like your hard work was all in vain.

No worries! Londontown has you covered. Take a cotton swab or a fine brush and use Strengthening Lacquer Remover to clean any polish mishaps. If you dent your nails while drying, the Instant Smudge Fix can save the day. Remember, practice makes perfect, and even minor flaws can add a bit of a character.

7. Nail Care Doesn’t Stop Here

Your nail care journey doesn’t end with the perfect manicure. Londontown’s oils, creams, and scrubs keep your nails and cuticles hydrated and strong between each new style. Regular moisturizing can also prevent dryness and breakage, ensuring your nails stay fresh and vibrant.

Finally, you’ll want to apply a top coat every few days to keep your manicure looking new, and you’ll enjoy salon-quality results for longer.
