What is all the Fuss About Londontown Kur Smudge Fix?

I live for the days that I find the time for a mani/pedi in my hectic schedule. And, nothing bums me out more than picking my favorite color, sitting at the salon for 2 hours and then leaving too soon (because I am always pressed for time) and smudging my fresh manicure. To make matters worse it always seems to happen when I have a special event, or an important work thing – and, lets be real, I’m a beauty blogger, so, yes, you know they are looking at my nails (and hair, and makeup and skin – you get the point).

When I was at IBS/IESC NY 2018 I came across the Londontown booth and out of the corner of my eye I spied the demonstrator painting her nails, and then intentionally smudging it…..what the? I bee-lined right towards her to see for myself the madness that was ensuing, I mean who intentionally smudges their nails?

And, like magic I watched her correct it as easily as she destroyed it. Two blinks, and I re-focused my eyes – was it really fixed, or did I just imagine that? Hmm, what’s going on here?

Londontown Kur Smudge Fix, I mean how did they do that? Where can I buy it? And, why do I sound like I’m on their payroll (I’m not – but seriously they should hire me, because I love their stuff, but maybe they shouldn’t because I’d probably just end up painting my nails all day).

All jokes aside, this stuff really is great because it can fix smudges, chips or dents whether they are new or old. Best part, it doesn’t matter what brand of nail polish it is – it works with any brand! And, it is Vegan, Gluten-free and Cruelty-free.

To explain this simply Kur Smudge Fix contains 5 different solvents in correct proportions that will smooth out polish whether it is fully, semi-wet or completely dry. It can smooth out a dent or smudge easily and dries quickly. To correct a chip, simply apply polish on the chip and then apply a thin coat of Kur Smudge Fix over it. It will level out the polish as if it was freshly painted, rendering the chip seamless.

The instructions for use are really simple, here’s what the Londontown website says,

For smudges

For minor nicks and dents

I got my own bottle of the kur Smudge Fix and I have been having a lot of fun testing it out. I have used it with Londontown nail lacquers as well as other brands and I have to say that it performed equally well whether I was using Londontown products or not.

While I was testing out the Smudge Fix, I also conducted some informal testing on 3 of their nail lacquer shades, True to Form, Portobello Plum and London Calling all of which are gorgeous, by the way. I am pleased to report that they hold up very, very well. I washed dishes, cleaned my house, went swimming and gardened while using the polishes and they really did last for a good 7 days under some harsh use. I did fix a couple of chips along the way, but that was totally expected. Also, unlike other brands I have tested I did not notice a difference in performance based on the colors I tried – which was a big bonus as far as I was concerned.

One of the best parts about Londontown Nail Polishes is that they hydrate your nails, while being 9-Free, Cruelty-Free, Vegan and Made in the USA – talk about multi-tasking!

Londontown Lakur is the only brand I am currently aware of which is 9-Free. Which is free from: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, formaldehyde resin, camphor, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, and acetone.

Londontown also has a line of nail treatment products which I totally plan on trying since I am always on the hunt for products to improve the look of my digits.
