Mentality Bon Bon Holographic Matt Polish

Hello friends,

Loving the sunshine πŸ™‚
I have a bone to pick with Mentality Polishes.. This is as serious as I sound .. I have loved their polishes but they are making sure that I don’t buy any other brand .. I have one more polish I swatched today and ended up Loving it as well (so did my husband!) ..

This is a Matte finish holo polish , the holo is noticeable during application but on drying not really a holo .. Although I love the color !! It’s a blend of pink and bronze .. πŸ™‚
The pictures are 3 coats, no top/base coat. Formula very easy to work with and extremely quick drying !!

OVERALL : I Love this brand and the polish!! Sorry about so many pictures , I didn’t want to delete any because I couldn’t stop admiring it πŸ™‚
I won’t call it a “hello I am A flashing holo”, but the Matte and the color is a must have !!

Mentality Fervor Holographic Polish

Hello dear ones !!
Today was a very pretty sunny day .. And I was praying for sun to swatch the very gorgeous holo from Mentality polish..friends .. Meet FERVOR !!

This is a silver based holo, great formula (although it looks a bit runny, it’s super easy to work with and slides super smoothly) .. It’s definitely comparable to the OPi formula .. It can be used as a double coater but I got greedy looking for more holo and used 3 coats. The swatches show no top/ base coat .. Pictures Taken in direct sun πŸ™‚

This is a comparison, pictures taken in direct sun and shade:

Now I was too excited about the holos but wondering if these polishes last, The pictures show polishes 2nd and 3rd day after application, notice a little tip chipping and that’s all I got after 3 day wear .. Well worth the $9.25 USD (and did I mention free shipping, no minimum) … Also checkout the holo !! Pictures taken at night and indoors:

OVERALL: I can’t say that I am not impressed by the price and the quality of the polishes ! I am now eyeing some of their matte finish polishes, they look too good to pass πŸ™‚ .. I guess I am just a little greedy :))
Also don’t go by the swatches on their Web Site, they don’t do justice to the polishes !! Give these a try and I am sure they will be a permanent in your addition. BTW, my mom fell in love with the Rosalyn and the Shadow I swatched earlier and so I don’t own them anymore 😦
Let me know what you all think ?? (Judge the polish and not my mom who took em :), I totally love her )

Mentality Rosalyn

Hello dear ones,
Today I have another Mentality nail polish to share, called Rosalyn

Although it’s defined as

Rosalyn is a soft red polish with gold flash. This polish dries to a semi-gloss finish.

I find it more of a blackened/ grey rose color with pink undertones, with a golden finish. It finishes frost with (true to the finish) visible brush strokes.

The application was super easy, these are two coats no top/base coat. And pretty Quick drying ! Pictures are taken indoors on a cloudy day, with lights in in the room and window open.

The polish is quite pretty although the pictures don’t quite capture it’s depth. Also the crappy weather didn’t help with the lighting 😦

And look who came over to take a closer look ..!!

OVERALL: At $6.50 and free shipping in USA, it’s a good polish to add to the collection.

Mentality Shadow & EstΓ©e Lauder 69 Frozen Fantasy

Hello dear ones !!

It’s been a sunless, cloudy, gloomy day and I am most disappointed for I really wanted to share some pretties!!
But since the impatient me couldn’t wait, I went ahead and sat by the front house window and voila !! (So glad I did)

This is Mentality Shadow.The most apt description is from the maker..

Shadow is a blackened rose metallic creme nail polish.

I had never heard about this brand before but they have an ongoing promotion on Facebook and twitter till 4/20/2014 for a daily free holo polish giveaway.. And I was interested!

The particular color is from their Metallic Cream Collection and retails at $6.50 USD. The first impression is that the smell is a bit “nail polish(y)” , I don’t mind but I know few people are quite particular about it. The formula was a little thin but surprisingly easy to work with ! Opaque in single coat although the swatches show two. No top/base coat. For best comparison, I would rate it at par with Opi formula.. Thin but surprisingly great ! (I know, I was a bit surprised too ESP comparing the price)
I noticed that the color is not true to the bottle, it appears a lot darker in the bottle than on application: (In a good surprising way):)

The brush is easy to work with , it’s a pretty quick drying polish so that’s a big plus for me. I did see myself needing to go back for a re-dip into the bottle after each nail was covered , this made sure I never over applied or dragged the brush from the last nail to the fresh one. (If I make sense here)

I compared it to one of my oldest polishes , it’s Frozen Fantasy 69 from EstΓ©e Lauder , and I own this polish since 2006!!! It’s been a great formula and a color and still great condition πŸ™‚ for sure worth every bit of $21
You will see the visual reason of comparison right now :
Pointer/Ring finger : EstΓ©e Lauder
Middle/ little finger : Mentality

Yes, they are not dupes but the application and finish is similar.

OVERALL I feel that the quality is very good and worth the price. My favorite part is that the company has free shipping all over USA , my packet came within 4 days and that’s pretty neat. Personally , I don’t think that the swatches on the website are accurate or do justice to the polishes, but surely they have something for everyone and the best is their attitude, depending on your preference they will recommend the best product for you. I love it when you get a great product at a great price and have the bonus of excellent experience.
