Who’s ready to see another post on the Girly Bits May 2017 Color Of The Month Duo? There is less than 24 hours left to snag it at the Early Bird price, then it goes to normal pricing until the last day of June.
For the Girly Bits May 2017 Color Of The Month Duo we have a “Mom” theme because of Mother’s Day being in May.
Not sure why, but this little story popped into my head about my son. When he was little (about 2 or 3) he was in the “no” phase. It didn’t bother me because he never went through the terrible 2’s or 3’s – so if him saying “no” was the worst thing, I could deal with it. Anyways, since he said “no” all the time, I got use to saying “Don’t you say no to me” while pointing at him so he knew I was talking to him. He’d always give a little giggle.
Then one day he asked for candy right after breakfast and I said “No” and he pointed his chubby little finger at me and said “Don’t you say no to me!” and I couldn’t stop laughing because he looked SO SERIOUS. Then we both went into a fit of giggles.
Just wanted to share that. My baby is 11 now, so when I tell him these stories he finds them hilarious.
Ok back to what you are really here for, the Girly Bits May 2017 Color Of The Month Duo!
Let’s take a look!
Because I Said So
The name of this polish I think is what reminded me of the “no” story above. I have used the “Because I said so!” phrase a lot, but that didn’t start until Jacob turned 10. Then everything is SUCH a chore and God forbid he has to *gasp* do work.
Because I Said So is a medium blush creme. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos. There are some gorgeous peachy tones in this creme and I just bought a purse that matches it.
I’m on a Spring blush kick right now.
Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya
Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya is a sparkling purple scattered holographic filled with holographic flakes, pink shimmer flecks, pink flakes and purple flakes. I used 2 coats and a glossy top coat for these photos.
Depending on your top coat, you might need 2 coats for a completely smooth finish. There is a slight texture to it because of the flakes. I used Girly Bits Glitter Glaze and only needed 1 coat.
Girly Bits May 2017 Color Of The Month Duo Overview
As usual, the fan voted names are perfect for the May duo! We all know I’m a purple lover, so Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya was a guaranteed love, but being on a blush kick made Because I Said So a shoo in as well, plus Pam’s cremes are incredible and dry with a gorgeous glossy finish.
No application issues to mention, but as I said, you might need 2 coats of top coat for Shake What Ya Mama Gave Ya.
Because the May Duo was launched late, it will be available until the end of June!
CoTM Duo Promos will run from the 1st to the 10th each month. May is a bit different because it was released later! Pick up the duo at a discounted price of $1.00 off each bottle from the Duo Early Bird listing during this time. After that, they will continue to be available for purchase individually at full price only.
