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

Mentality Nail Polish Spam

Hey dolls! I have a few Mentality polishes to share with you that I didn’t include with other collections previously. I only have two more posts to go from the massive box that I was sent from them a few months ago. Mentality Black Holo is deep black holo polish. The formula was sheer, but not at all runny. It
