***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.
I went back and forth all day figuring out how to do this post. On one hand, it’s 18 polishes which makes it a long post so breaking it up makes sense. On the other hand, I personally want to see a full collection within 1 post so I can scroll through when I decide what I want to buy rather than swapping back and forth between posts.
I decided to post all 18 in one shot.
Each photo will show the shades with the solid color painted on 3 nails and the ring finger painted with Mentality Rascal and then the Metallic Creme shade stamped over it. This is to show each polish on it’s own as well as show off it’s stamping abilities. I decided on a black base to stamp over because it’s the darkest polish and you can see how opaque each Metallic Creme is over it.
Each Metallic Creme shade is almost a 1 coat polish. I used 2 for each photo as usual though.
Let’s get started!
Memento is a deep metallic creme with a tinge of reddish lavender in it.
Tactful is a deep gold metallic creme.
Imply is a blackened green metallic creme.
Trace is a blackened blue metallic creme.
Innuendo is a blackened purple metallic creme.
Shadow is a blackened rose metallic creme.
Allusion is a blackened brown metallic creme.
Discreet is a blackened silver metallic creme.
Element is a silvered reddish lavender metallic creme.
Glow is a lavender metallic creme.
Prudent is a silvered gold metallic creme.
Hint is a silver toned green metallic creme.
Touch is a silvered blue metallic creme.
Whisper is a silvered lavender metallic creme.
Tinge is a silvered rosy pink metallic creme.
Overtone is a light silvered taupe metallic creme.
Delicate is a light grey metallic creme.
Tint is a light silvered light pink metallic creme.
The Metallic Cremes are interesting. They have the look of a metallic, but the consistency of a creme when applied. Like most metallic polishes I’ve come across, brush strokes are visible to some degree in each shade. The lighter shades definitely showed them more than darker. All 18 shades are close to being 1 coat shades, a few are – but I did use 2 for all of these photos. All of them stamped BEAUTIFULLY. They all covered Rascal easily and were opaque over the black.
