Mani and Lola - September 2018

Hello! Today I have September's Mani and Lola box to share with you. If you missed my look at August's box, you can find that post here. Mani and Lola packed September's box full of seasonal shades to 'welcome the beauty of Autumn with open arms'. Read on for my full swatches and a look at everything we recieved!

First up for polishes is OPI Infinite Shine 'Tiramisu for Two', a slightly peach-toned nude. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. It is a bit streaky to begin with. I could see how this could be a two coater for some people, although I did need a third to even it out completely. Below is three coats with topcoat.

Next is China Glaze 'Haute & Heavy', a gunmetal with a hint of blue. The formula is slightly on the thick side, but it is smooth and easy to apply and is completely opaque in one coat. I don't think there's any way you could need a second coat with this. Below is one coat with topcoat.

Next is Zoya 'Dree', a dusty olive green. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. The first coat went on a bit sheer and streaky, but a second evened it out and brought it fully opaque. Below is two coats with topcoat.

Last for polish is Jessica 'Cinnamon Kiss', a deep blackened base full of red shimmer. It has a smooth, easy to apply formula. The first coat is a little bit light and patchy, but a second evens it out and deepens the colour. I added a third out of curiosity, but it made no visible difference. Below is three coats with topoat.

We also recieved three nail/skin care products for September - a sleeping mask and 50ml nail polish remover (a mild acetone mix) both from Mavala, and a Mani and Lola nail shaping file.

What do you think? It's a great box in my eyes, and all of the polishes are perfect for Autumn - I'm definitely in the mood for lots of leaf manis and cosy days. I did do a couple of quick nail art looks using a few of the polishes in this box. I'll be sharing those in my next post.
