***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.
Here we go with another post to celebrate Mentality Week on the blog! Today I have the Pastel Mattes to show you!
If you love matte shades like I do, Mentality is THE site to check out. From pastels to deep dark shades, and almost everything in between – Mentality pretty much has you covered! While the shades look amazing in their natural state (matte) they also dazzle with a glossy top coat if you aren’t a huge matte lover.
Ready for the Pastel Mattes? I am missing 2 Pastel Mattes for this post. So to see Amy and Virginia, make sure you visit the Mentality Website to see the creators stunning swatches of those 2! I will have them up on the blog soon to show you as well!
The first photo in each set is without top coat, and the second photo in each set is the same shade but with top coat!
Elizabeth is a light pinkish nude shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo
Mae is a pretty pink matte shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Mary is a pastel matte pink shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Alice is a pastel champagne matte shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Sarah is a pastel fawn matte shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Jane is a pastel ecru matte shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Laura is a pastel chartreuse matte shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo
Karen is a pastel sage matte shade with a subtle silver shimmer. This is one of my favorites and I LOVE the look of it with top coat! I used 2 coats for this photo.
Jackie is another favorite of mine! Jackie is a pastel indigo blue with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
Angelina is a pastel lilac matte shade with a subtle silver shimmer. I used 2 coats for this photo.
As you can see, all of these look really light and dainty both with and without top coat. For some I love them in their natural matte state, but others I adore with a top coat. All of the Pastel Mattes are completely wearable both ways! As with most matte polishes, dry time on these are pretty quick. You don’t have to move super fast for application, but you don’t want to be a slow poke or they will start to dry and drag. One thing I will say when applying these, when you first put them on, they almost apply like a creme or shimmer polish would – very smooth and fluid and then they dry down to a matte. So even if you have problems applying mattes (and I know some that do!) these are definitely user friendly.
