At Cosmoprof, I came across the LONDONTOWN booth and was given two lovely colors and a sample of a new product that they have available for sale September 1, 2015.

Instant Smudge Fix, sounds simple right? Well, it is simple to use and to fall for because it is one of those things that we all need at some point in our lives or careers as professional nail tech’s.

Instant Smudge Fix from LONDONTOWN

Necessity is the finest form of invention right???

Following is a pictoral of how the product works.

Smudged nail lacquer :(

The directions for smudges are as follows.

For smudges:
• Gently brush a thin layer over entire nail to smooth polish.
• Allow to dry for 10 seconds.
• Apply kur Protective Top Coat, kur Gel Genius Top Coat or kur Protective Matte Coat, if desired.
• Wait two minutes and apply one drop of kur Accelerating Drying Oil.

After my smudge, I brushed on a thin layer of Instant Smudge Fix to the entire nail but here was my first mistake. I applied too much brush pressure and took off the lacquer near the end of my fingernail.

too much pressure = removing lacquer :(

Ah, no problem I thought. I will just add another coat of lacquer! That’s what I did and then my second mistake! I proceeded to give my lacquer job a nice dent while I was trying to remove the over flow on the side of my nail…..(heavy sigh!)

….really???? lol

But wait, there are instructions for more disastrous nicks in your lacquer. Here they are.

For minor nicks and dents:
• Fill in ruined area with polish. Allow to dry for 10 seconds. Gently brush a thin layer of kur Instant Smudge Fix over entire nail to smooth polish.
• Allow to dry for 10 seconds.
• Apply kur Protective Top Coat, kur Gel Genius Top Coat or kur Protective Matte Coat, if desired.
• Wait two minutes and apply one drop of kur Accelerating Drying Oil.

I followed the instructions by filling in the nick,

before top coat

I didn’t have any of their top coats so I applied a coat of Seche Vite to finish the nail.

I will tell you, I am impressed that this product works as it states and the finished product looks like I didn’t even have a nick or smudge in it at all!

with a top coat

Pretty great right????? What do you think?

The color is gorgeous and Instant Smudge Fix should be in everyone’s cupboard. Because, I can’t be the only one who ever smudges or nicks or dents or destroys nail polish, can I???

Again, it is available online (pre-ordered only before Sept 1) at http://www.londontownusa.com/product.php?productsID=86 for only $14.00 With the small amount that you actually use to fix your smudges, this will last forever.

And while you are there, make sure to investigate the wonderful restorative nail cream and eye popping color selection!

PS. This delicious creamy medium/dark mauve color is called “Save the Queen”
