LONDONTOWN Kur and Lakur Swatch and Review

Happy Thursday Everyone!!

Today I have a new to me brand called LONDONTOWN. A beautiful collection of treatments "KUR" and polishes "LAKUR". First, lets see what LONDONTOWN is all about......

A new to me brand may also be new to you. Read more on the background behind LONDONTOWN:

"The story of LONDONTOWN begins in Radlett, England in my grandmother’s garden. Using handpicked botanicals and a blend of flower oils, she would create a healing remedy that would be massaged into my hands and nails to hydrate and ensure protection from the crisp, dry English air.
Years later, I was reminded of this cherished memory as I began noticing negative effects the chemicals in UV gel were having on my nails. This revelation motivated me to inspirit my inherited family remedy and develop kur, a naturally derived nail treatment system that is a thoughtful holistic approach to restoring, strengthening and hydrating nails and cuticles.

With a modern and sophisticated concept in mind, our formulas combine nail care science with the nourishing and restorative properties of Britain’s rapeseed flower oil, chamomile, cucumber and other essential oils and extracts.  Our philosophy goes beyond the nail surface by providing care to your entire nail.
 At LONDONTOWN, our dedication is to product excellence and the British traditions we were founded upon.  Today, my grandmother is proud that the remedy she passed down has been made into an effective and nourishing solution that is now accessible to everyone."   

I was sent a few products from LONDONTOWNS KUR line.

KUR Nourishing Cuticle Oil smells fresh but almost an outdoorsy, grassy scent. It's pleasant!

Works to replenish the nail's natural oil balance while hydrating and moisturizing dry, raw, cracked skin at and around the cuticle area.Created with Britain's rapeseed flower oil, an essential source of nutrients, and a unique blend of natural extracts and vitamins to heal and nourish the cuticle and nail root. Price $25

Nail Hardener (Left) is a base coat, works to replenish strength and maintain healthy nail protein (keratin) and natural oil balances to protect against cracking, chipping, splitting and peeling nails. Price $25
