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 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

Merry Christmas to all of you who celebrate! I hope that all of you are feeling loved today and spending time with the ones you care about most.

Mary Kay Tempting Teal & Radiant Red

Hey dolls! Today I have photos for you of my first Mary Kay polishes. Most people are aware that Mary Kay sells beauty and skin care items, but they also sell limited edition polishes at times. I’m not a big make up fan, but I do use Mary Kay’s timewise skin care line and lip glosses regularly. One of my
