Mani Catch Up - May 2019

Hello! Today I have my May mani catch up post. How is it the end of May already?! I started my catch up posts last month, so if you missed that post you can find it here. I've had a lot of fun with nails this month, and have plenty of posts already planned for June, so let's get stuck in. Read on for a closer look at each mani and more info!

Mani Catch Up - May 2019 @acertainbeccaa

First up is Sally Hansen x Jelly Belly 'Berry Blue', a blue creme. I have already shared my swatch of this along with the rest of the collection (post here), but I added a matte topcoat to it for a nautical mani (post here) and loved it! Below is three coats with Barry M matte topcoat.

Next is some quick stamping over Fair Maiden Polish 'Under The Sea' from the March For The Love Of Polish box (swatched here). I stamped using UberChic Beauty plate Mermaid Life and a Born Pretty Store metallic silver stamping polish.

Next is a mani I did for redheadspaintitbetter's recent birthday collab. I smooshed five of my brightest Esmaltes Da Kelly creme polishes ('Kaa', 'Cleo', 'Kiki', 'Chili', and 'Bruce') over a white base before adding Barry M matte topcoat. I then stamped some balloons and a birthday message using UberChic Beauty plate Party Time and Hit The Bottle 'As Black As Night'.

Next up is a quick swatch of Zoya 'Wednesday', a pastel turquoise/aqua creme. The formula is smooth and easy to apply. Being a lighter shade, this does start off a bit sheer and streaky. It was almost there in two coats, but I did add a third to even it out completely. Below is three coats with topcoat.

What do you think? What's your favourite from May's catch up? I love the birthday mani - it's so bright and fun! I've definitely been appreciating having a bit more fun with nail art and trying to be more creative (and using matte topcoat a lot!). Hopefully I'll have some more bright manis to share with you throughout the month of June.

Hope to see you in the next post!
