Moore Swatches: Londontown – lakur and kur


Hey Sugas!!! I have a new-to-me brand to share with you today, Londontown!!! Please give them a warm Queendom welcome!

Londontown began in Radlett, England in a quest to find a solution to hydrate hands and nails. The brand is comprised of both kur, the luxe nail care system, and lakur, the superior nail color collection. The family remedy, now known as Florium Complex, is an exclusive blend of vitamins and botanical oils restores, hydrates and strengthen nails from within, improving nail quality and manicure length with every application and is infused into the kur and lakur products. 

I had the privileged to select products from both the kur and lakur lines, let’s take a look!

The Queens Critique: Wildflower Lacquer – Wax Melts


Hey Sugas!!! Anyone who knows me, knows that I have a passion for candles and wax melts. I believe this is because I have a strong sense of smell. Jason and the kids tease me about being able to smell things that are miles away…lol! I can’t help it, I was born this way.

Nevertheless, candles and wax melts are my thing. I use to spend hours in the candle/wax isle smelling all the candles and those high-end shops…. forget about it. Jason and the kids would just leave me in the mall, run their errands and come back for me. To me smell invokes memories and memories, good or bad, are life lessons. For instance, the scent of warm apple pie reminds of me being in my grandfather’s late wife’s diner. She made the best homemade pies. Vanilla will always be a classic and reminds me of the warm vanilla sugar scent I used to wear all throughout high school. 

I love that I can support indie brands and purchase wax melts, a cleaner and safer alternative to the traditional candle. Wax melts are totally on trend right now and are budget-friendly. Today I have 3 scents from Wildflower Lacquer, Celebrate Good Times, Creaming For You and Spa Day, all of which are currently available online.

The Queens Critique: Anchor & Heart Lacquer – Nail Care Essentials


Hey Sugas!!! We all know that every great outfits starts with the essentials, right? You remember mom saying “make sure you have one clean underwear when you go out!”, it’s because it’s important. When you hop out of the shower and get dressed, what’s the first piece of clothing you put on? I’m 99% sure its some sort of under garment. Now…. if you don’t put anything on, that’s a conversation for another day, so let’s assume you do. Underclothing is the base.

Your manicure should be no different. The essentials are extremely important. #basecoatsmatter!!! To me, the base is just as, if not more important than the top coat. The base gives the polish an anchor, something to hold on to. It will help reduce chipping and wear AND if you apply one that has nourishing ingredients, you can even start to see an improvement in growth and overall appearance. For me, I NEED a fast drying top coat because as a busy woman, I’m always on the go and don’t have time to sit for 30 mins while my polish dries. Who does???

Introducing the complete, new Nail Care Essentials line from Anchor & Heart Lacquer. Now while you’re shopping for great polish, you can purchase everything you need in one order to take your mani over the top. The Nail Care Essential line includes, a matte topcoat, strengthening base coat, cuticle oil, fast drying top coat and a conditioning base coat.

The Queens Critique: Le Petite Indies Box – The Ultimate Man-a-cure


Hey Sugas!!! Now that Mother’s Day is over is time to start thinking about that special man in your life. For me it’s my amazing hubby Jason. He works so hard and tirelessly for his family and he never complains. As a truck driver, Jason is constantly in and out of his truck on his feet handling boxes all. day. long. So rather than treat him to a t-shirt of coffee mug that says “World’s Best Dad”, I thought it would be nice for a change to treat him to a spa day. Why not pamper the man who pampers me and take of his hands and feet for a change.

For The Ultimate Man-a-cure, the collaborating makers behind the Le Petite Indie Box thought of EVERYTHING!!!! And what makes this box so great, is that it’s unisex. Yes, I did say pamper him, but I didn’t say only him… LOL. Go ahead treat yourself too!!  

The Ultimate Man-a-cure Box includes: 

    • Strong Bond Base Coat from Fanchromatic Nails
    • Purrfect Matte Topcoat from Sassy Cat Lacquer
    • Ego Boost Pumice Scrub from Alter Ego
    • Helios Beard Oil from KNI Beauty & Bath
    • Emory board and cuticle pusher

For a live look on how I used these products for Jason’s man-a-cure at home, join us this evening, May 13th, at 7pm est on my Queen of Nails 83 FB page (direct link to page below).
