Does Anyone Remember Carnate Buffing Cream?

Years ago, I used to use a product called Nailoid Carnate Buffing Cream. It gave my nails an amazing shine and was a natural way to achieve polished fingernails without the polish. As someone who seems to be constantly washing my hands, nail polish does not stay on for long and I wanted my nails to look nice without having to worry about chipped polish.

I recently went in search of this product here and no-one had heard of it. I tried online and discovered that it is now called Nailoid Results Carnate Buffing Polish. It is still made in England and I thought that it would be easy to obtain. How wrong can I be?

I found it on a couple of U.S. sites ~ one does not ship to Canada and the other charges a phenomenal amount for shipping; obviously designed to avoid the hassle of shipping across the border ~ so much for the free trade agreement.

Then I decided to ask my Aunt in the U.K. to get me some and mail it ~ she could not find anyone who had even heard of it and was eventually told that the company concerned (Boots) hadn't stocked it in years. So if it is still been manufactured, where on earth are they selling it?

Am I the only person who has ever used this product?
