Today I have four matte holos from Mentality Nail Polish: Betty, Mairead, Wangari, and Black Holo. The matte holos were an “oops” from Mentality originally, but they are part of their line (for now). There are so many pictures today, so click after the collage if you want to see more pictures of these beauties! (Please note: I no longer support Mentality Nail Polish, if you’d like more information about this, please read my open Facebook post.)
As usual, the formula on these polishes are typical of Mentality – smooth and easy. They do dry a bit fast because of the matte finish. I’ve used OPI base & top coats on all of the polishes, and each shows 2 coats. They can be a bit brush-strokey though, so just take your time applying the polish.
Mentality Betty is a blackened purple with a red/pink sparkle. Showing here no topcoat, lightbox:
Mentality Mairead is similar to Betty, but it is more of a dark purple rather than a blackened purple. It also has more of a red undertone than Betty. Showing here no topcoat, lightbox:
Mentality Wangari is a golden brown/champagne color with pink undertone. It was the surprise polish in this bunch to me! Showing no topcoat, lightbox:
Mentality Black Holo is a silvery black. Showing here no topcoat, lightbox:
I honestly love each and every one of these and plan on buying the rest of the matte holos! Have you bought any of these from Mentality yet? Don’t forget that U.S. orders always have free shipping, and keep up with updates on their Facebook page.
