Review: Mentality Polish

Products reviewed were self-purchased.

Good afternoon! I have 4 absolutely beautiful polishes to review for you today from Mentality Polish. This is a new-to-me indie brand, and I have to say that I’m impressed. I purchased Sunny, Tempest, Sailor, and Foggy, and I think I chose rather well. All four are polishes that dry matte, not shiny. Warning: lots of pretty pictures ahead. (Please note: I no longer support Mentality Nail Polish, if you’d like more information about this, please read my open Facebook post.)

Let’s start with Sunny. This is a gorgeous shimmery white polish. Application was a bit tricky; I think perhaps I did not let each coat dry well enough before starting another because it dragged a bit, but it’s worth it to me for how pretty it is. When I applied top coat, I could really see the golden shimmer. Clean-up on this was NOT fun, though. It was really hard to clean up around my nails and took a good scrubbing to get off. This is 2 coats.

Next up is Foggy. Application was also a bit tricky on this, a bit of dragging, but really no biggie. There is a golden and green shimmer in this, that is drop-dead gorgeous. My favorite of the four! Clean-up on this was a bit easier than Sunny, but still left behind sparkles. This is also two coats.

Next up is Sailor, a deep denim blue. I have to say right off the bat that this has become my absolute Holy Grail deep blue! I absolutely love it and it is gorgeous. With top coat, it looks like different colored blues that shimmer through, and purple as well. Application on this was perfect. You will need to double up on your base though, since this left my nails stained a bit, even with one coat of base. This is also two coats.

Lastly is Tempest. I wasn’t sure if I was going to like Tempest, but it really is a pretty brown/red color. With no top coat, it really does look more brown. But with top coat on it, the red shines through. It’s definitely a vampy color. Clean-up was the easiest with this polish. This is 2 coats as well.

Again, I am very impressed with Mentality Polish – their prices are so reasonable for an indie – hell even for a mainstream brand; prices start at $6.50 (I think). Shipping is FREE for U.S. The shipping is also FAST! Be sure to like them on facebook, and check out their store here. I look forward to more purchases from them!

You know I couldn’t leave it without doing some sort of nail art, right? I did a pedicure today, with Sunny and Sailor.

  1. Each one is great in it’s own way. Maybe I like Foggy the best? I adopted a cat named Foggy but I renamed her Fergie and she didn’t notice. So that one would have special meaning for me LOL.
    Their prices sound really good!

  2. I love each of them! Sailor and Tempest are most likely tied in first place though! Sigh unfortunately I don’t stay in the States so I can’t enjoy free shipping…but I really need to get some Mentality polishes! 😀
