POTM...May Edition

As most of you probably know, we started our Polish Of The Month posts back in August as seen here and we love showcasing a special polish or polishes (because sometimes two is better than one) every single month. There are so many awesome polishes out there that they really do deserve their own post! So without further adieu, we bring you...

May Polish Of The Month

Jayme's Pick - Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Lively Lilac and Essie's Kisses and Bises

Normally Lively Lilac lives on my toes as I think it's such a gorgeous color on my piggies, however I thought I'd show her some love this month and I'm so happy that I did. It's the perfect shade of purple and has the most subtle sheen. But I wanted just a tad more so I added Kisses & Bises which is extremely sheer and is iridescent so it's a perfect layering polish. It just amps up this purple a tad which I love. I keep finding myself staring at my nails!



Mendi's Pick - Color Club in Clambake Coral (via my May Birchbox)

My pick this month is courtesy of Birchbox. You guys know how easily pleased I am when it comes to nail polish, so when I tore into my May box, I was thrilled to see this bright coral-y orange number. It's just the right shade to sport on my nails as we begin transitioning from the spring months to the hotter summer months. And did I mention that it makes me want to host a clambake? I've been dying to try this Shrimp Boil Kebabs recipe from Cook Au Vin. Soon...definitely soon!



Now it's your turn! Drop us a comment to let us know what polish(es) have been residing on your digits and piggies this month!

  2. I just rediscovered a bottle of pink nail polish from Wet N Wild that I got a year ago and I'm in love with it! I didn't even know that I liked pink-ish nude back then ;) Oh and I also don't know if they still make that shade - I checked their site and didn't find it there!

  5. I've been really attracted to those 2colors lately for this season! Although I can't wait orange clothing....an orange mani is a great idea!And I don't have to think twice about the lilac color!

  46. Love how bright both of these polishes are and what a nice finish they both have. What do you use as a top coat? I've got a very similar orange on my fingers and Essie's Ole Caliente on my toes. Thinking of putting blue on tomorrow to change it up :)
