Mani and Lola - February 2018

Hello! Today I have February's Mani and Lola box to share with you. If you missed my unboxing and swatches for January's box, you can find that post here. I've really enjoying Mani and Lola so far, so have been looking forward to what this month treated us to. Similar to last month, we recieved 7 items in total. Read on to see them all and for my full swatches!

Mani and Lola - February 2018 @acertainbeccaa

First up we have Essie 'Rock the Runway', a bright red creme from Essie's gel couture range, along with a full size bottle of the gel couture topcoat. I only have one other gel couture polish, and typically it's this shade! It is smooth and easy to apply, and builds up in three coats. Below is cheekily my old swatch, as I gave the brand new bottle to my mum.

Next is OPI 'Made it to Seventh Hill!', described by OPI as a 'golden rose'. This is from the Lisbon Collection for Spring/Summer 2018, so is a very recently released polish! It starts off a bit sheer so I did find myself needing a third coat. It is also quite brushstrokey due to the metallic finish. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Next is Maggie Anne 'Aileen', a pinky purple base packed full of holographic flakes. I've actually had my eye on this for a while! The formula is super smooth and easy to apply. The base is on the sheer side to let the flakes shine through. You could probably get away with two coats, but I added another to build it up a bit more. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Last up for polishes is Nails Inc 'Mermaid Parade', a shimmery iridescent aqua. This is from the very recently released mermaid duo, so again I was impressed to see such a current polish. Due to the finish, this is sheer, however I did find it built up nicely on it's own. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Finally, we were given another Mani and Lola file, and a bottle of acetone free remover from Salon System. The file is a lot softer of a grit, and is intended for a quick buff to shine your nails. Acetone free remover is always good as it is much gentler and much less drying.

What do you think? Another fabulous value for money box! I say this in every Mani and Lola post, but I just love how they manage to spoil us with such recently released polishes - it really does make it that little bit more exciting. I think my favourite this month has to be the Maggie Anne, although I do have a soft spot for the Nails Inc mermaid shade!
