Mentality Nail Polish The Blue Mattes Swatches and 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.

I have another set of Mentality Nail Polish Mattes on the blog today!  I reviewed The Pink Mattes over the weekend, but they also released a gorgeous set of blue matte nail polishes!  These 5 shades are perfect for an ombré manicure or even gradient nails!



Pilot is a light blue matte.  One of my favorites!  I used 2 coats for this photo.



Hero is a medium dusty blue matte shade.  Again, I used 2 coats for this photo.



Tough is a vivid matte royal blue.  Another favorite!  I used 2 coats for this photo.



Brute is a shade I’ve shown on the blog before!  Brute is a dark royal blue and I wear this shade a LOT!  I used 2 coats for this photo.



Sailor is a deep navy blue matte.  I’m still wearing this today!  When I was done swatching I put it back on.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Ombré using all 3!


If you are a blue fan, this set is for you!  I will do a post for both The Pink Mattes and The Blue Mattes soon with top coat on them so you can see how fabulous they look with top coat as well!

My Top Picks:  Pilot, Tough and Sailor!

You can purchase all of these shades from The Blue Matte Collection on the Mentality Big Cartel Shop for $6.50 each (not a bad price at all!)

Like all 5?  You can purchase all 5 shades $30.00 if you buy the set.

Want some from this collection and some mattes from other collections?  Purchase their Matte Collection Set  and pick any 5 mattes Mentality carries for $30.00

Mentality Nail Polishes are 3 Free and each bottle has 2 stainless steel mixing balls.
