MANI THAT LASTS
New to M&S, Butter London’s gel-effect polish combines nail-loving benefits with up to 10 days’ chip-free wear, says beauty editor Emma Robertson
Ilove the glossy longevity of gel manicures, but I also like to give my nails a break from the salon. Thankfully, the new Patent Shine 10X Nail Lacquer from hip backstage nail brand Butter London (an exciting new arrival at M&S), gives me both. With a phenomenal 10 benefits, it takes inspiration from gel nail treatments but hardens using natural light, rather than under a UV or LED lamp, for up to 10 days’ wear – helped by patented shock-resistance technology to prevent chipping. Strengthening bamboo extract stops breakage and peeling, while smart UV absorbers prevent colour fade. Choose from nine trend-led colours (including Jolly Good, shown here), each free from toxins and allergens such as formaldehyde, toluene and camphor. You’ll be wowed by their smooth, high-shine finish, too.
