Butter London Hardwear

When I do intricate nail designs, such as the one shown here, and after my nail art has dried, I want a topcoat that protects, shines, and makes the manicure last longer. That is exactly what the Butter London Hardwear Pretty Darn Quick Topcoat does. Last week, I showed you what the Butter London Basecoat can do, this week I'll show you how good their Topcoat looks. If you love both, you can get them in this set, which I think is a better deal. They both come in a bigger size than regular-sized nail polish (0.6 fl oz instead of 0.5) and the packaging is very appealing. I experienced no shrinkage whatsoever, no smudges nor bubbling, and it had just the right consistency, not to watery or too thick. The pictures really speak for themselves, this shines like glass.
