Lush Lemony Flutter

If you have read my blog previously you'll know how much I love nail polishes and I'm rarely seen for longer periods with nude, bare nails. In fact, this only happens about 3-4 times a year and that is when I do my regular nail detox. Wearing polish every day, and using nail polish remover can be tough on the nails and cuticles so I regularly take time out for my nails when I don't wear any polish, except a clear treatment polish for whatever my nails need most at the moment. For the past 2.5 weeks I've given my nails one of these breathers and the only products that I've used are Sally Hansen Miracle Nail Growth Treatment and Lush's Lemony Flutter.

Lemony Flutter is an ultra rich and thick cuticle butter that will help to nourish and soften the cuticles. It contains a long list of ingredients like thick oils from soya, avocado, coconut - butters from shea and mango that together with the beeswax form this delicious whipped and thick butter. It has an amazing strong and refreshing smell of creamy, sweet lemon - it's like rubbing lemon mousse into your cuticles and nails.

You only need a very little amount for each nail, and when you massage it in, the oils and butter heat up and melt beautifully into the skin leaving it feeling a tiny bit oily, but nourished and smelling absolutely fantastic. If you want to apply polish straight afterwards, you should probably wipe the nails clean, but since I've gone "nude" I've really enjoyed the feeling of the oils sinking into the nail properly. For the past weeks I've massaged in this gorgeous butter every morning and evening and it's really revitalized the cuticles that now look healthy and supple, and the sweet and zesty lemon scent has really been a wonderful pick me up to restore my mood. In addition my nails feel stronger and have definitely grown a little bit thanks to the Miracle Growth treatments that I've re-applied every other day. I absolutely love this nail and cuticle butter and it smells so enticing that even Him Indoors has started to use a little bit every now and then. 

The past weeks of my NPP (No Polish Policy) may have been a great and well needed break for my nails, but it has also been exceptionally boring from a nail polish point of view and I can't wait for the 3 weeks to end, so I can start wearing all the wonderful shades I've bought recently. I wonder which shade I should start with...

  1. This sounds lovely, I just love Lush products and find them just as good as much higher end products for a fraction of the price! I've not tried this yet but think I'll add it to my list :) Great review! x

  2. I'd love to try this out, currently I just use the body shop lemon body butter and it does the job nicely but I think I should try out the real deal from Lush! x

  10. I love Lush and this does sound amazing! I've been having the problem of unhealthy nails from wearing too much nail varnish and from using harsh sanitisers etc at work so I'll definitely be investing in something like this after reading your post because I haven't really known what I could do about it :)
