***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 info@mentalitynailpolish.com

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.

It’s the final day of Mentality Week!  Of course I had to save my favorite Mentality Nail Polish for last ;)

Today I have Mentality Lisa to show you!  This polish is my namesake and was created basically for me.  Lisa is part of the Luxe Textured Glass Holo collection.


Lisa is a super dense red-purple holographic glass fleck nail polish.  It dries with a slight texture, but 1 coat of top coat smoothed it all out.  I used 2 coats for this photo and I’m in LOVE!

This is one of their more expensive collections.  Each bottle is $13.00 because the ingredients to make it are pricier.

You can find this shade, and view the rest of the collection on the Mentality Website
