Mentality Greyscale Mattes

Mentality Greyscale Mattes

Hey dolls! Today I have photos for you of some of the Mentality Greyscale Mattes. I previously reviewed several polishes from this collection here. The formula on each polish was exactly the same; well pigmented, applied easily, and was opaque in two coats. These polishes also dry relatively quickly and self-level quite nicely (mattes can sometimes leave brushstrokes). Mentality Storm

I’ll have a full post on that tomorrow, so today’s post is all about the Mentality Grayscale Mattes collection.

Mentality Pink Mattes

Mentality Pink Mattes Collection

Hey dolls! This evening I have photos for you of the Mentality Pink Mattes collection. This is another ombre set and I just love it. The formula was great on each polish. They applied nicely and were opaque with two coats. I would recommend trying to apply the polishes as evenly as possible to avoid visible brushstrokes. Contessa is the

Mentality Mish Mosh Mani

Twinsie Tuesday ~ Mish Mosh

Hey dolls! I’ve missed two weeks of Twinsie Tuesday themes and I’m glad to be back today. The theme for today is mish mosh, where we were supposed to use a different technique on each nail. I wanted to keep each nail relatively simple, so I started with two Mentality mattes. Ruffian is a bright blue matte filled with silver
