Mentality The Jelly Collection Swatches & Review

by Lisa Heath

***Added 7/23/15 – please read this announcement ***

If you have purchased from Mentality from April 2015 – June 2015 and you are experiencing sensitivity, itchiness or burning, please contact Mentality directly to have your polishes replaced. Their email is [email protected]

I personally did NOT experience any reactions when using these polishes, but many did. Please know I would have been fully transparent had I known the damage that was being caused. Again, please read the announcement above and by clicking on it, you will be taken to Mentality’s initial statement regarding the issue.

Ready for more swatch spam from Mentality Nail Polish?  I have so many of their new pretties sitting on my desk I couldn’t decide where to start!  Finally I settled on The Jelly Collection!

Jelly Collection Collage

The Jelly Collection consists of 9 brightly colored jelly shades.  These vibrant hues built to full opacity in just 3 coats, but if you want to play with jelly sandwiches or have a little more VNL – you only need 2 coats.



Tyler is a red toned purple jelly.  One of my top picks in this collection.

Kacy is a blue toned purple and the deepest shade in the collection.

My heart just stopped when I put Rachel on!  Rachel is a bright blue jelly shade.  So vibrant and gorgeous!  Just make sure to use a good base coat, you may experience very light staining.

Rachel CU



Nina is another beauty!  Nina is an aqua jelly shade.  Has a glowy look to it.

Nina CU



Mona is a medium green jelly shade.  This is a very wearable green for me!

Cara is a gorgeous golden yellow jelly shade.

Shalon is a warm toned orange jelly shade.  Orange is a tricky color for me to wear, but this one works well with my skin tone.

Shalon CU



Jennifer is a gorgeous pink with red tones in it.  Another glowy jelly shade!

Jennifer CU



Jill is a coral jelly shade. I’m a sucker for coral (almost as much as for purple!) and love this polish!

Jill CU


Another great collection from Mentality!  I like that these have the squishy look of a jelly but with a buildable opacity of a creme.  All of these photos were taken without top coat and are very shiny on their own.  As I said earlier, it you want more of a jelly sheerness, you can just use 2 coats and still have VNL or even glitter layers between the coats.  All of the shades are incredibly vibrant and fun.

Tbh, I’m not familiar w/ this brand, I’m no biggie on nails that’s why. But I like the colors and jelly finish!

I didn’t use to be big on nails, and nails wasn’t my point of focus when I started blogging, but then I got addicted to polish!
