Mani and Lola - May 2018

Hello! Today I finally have a look at May's offering from Mani and Lola. If you missed April's box, you can find that here. My swatch pile is quite big at the moment, so unfortunately I am a bit later sharing my subscription boxes than I'd like. This post was also supposed to go live yesterday, but I ended up seeing The Rolling Stones with my Grandad instead! Nevertheless, here it is.  Read on for my full swatches and a look at everything inside!

Mani and Lola - May 2018 @acertainbeccaa

First up is OPI 'It's a Boy!', a pastel baby blue creme. This is from last years Soft Shades Collection, and one I've always liked the look of. The formula is super smooth and easy to apply. Being a lighter colour, this does start off a bit streaky. It built up pretty well after a second coat, but I did need to add a third to even it out completely. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Next is Butter London 'Fancy', a dusty purple. It has a smooth, easy to apply formula, though I did find it to be more of a crelly. It started off quite sheer, but built up nicely and dried glossy. I could see myself needed a third coat on this depending on the day. Below is two coats with topcoat.

Next is Jessica Cosmetics 'Boho Babes', a pastel peach creme. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. Being a lighter pastel colour, this is streaky. I still had some fairly considerable streaks after my second coat so did need a third. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Last up for polishes is Morgan Taylor 'Rule the Runway', a slightly purple toned grey creme. The formula is slightly thin, but it was still easy to apply. It starts off a bit sheer and streaky yet builds up really well in two coats. Like the Butter London, I could see myself needing a third. Below is two coats with topcoat.

First up for extras this month is a Sparkle Like a Unicorn facemask from INC.redible (by Nails Inc). I was a bit surprised to see this in a nail polish subscription box. That being said, I will still use it!

Last up this month is a full size Cuccio 'Butter & Scrub'. Mine is in the scent Milk & Honey. I love a good scrub so will definitely get good usage out of this. I seem to be getting quite the collection of Cuccio's hand and body care products - and I do like them!

What do you think? As usual, this is great value for money, and full of great products. I'm not entirely sure this screams Spring to me. Both the OPI and Jessica are definitely what I'd consider spring polishes, the Morgan Taylor and Butter London not so much - I do still like them though! This months box actually arrived yesterday, so I need to get a move on and post it sooner this time!

Hope to see you in the next post!
