Mentality Nail Polish The Matte Collection 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 told you on Facebook last night that I had a FABULOUS matte collection to show you today!  Mentality Nail Polish has a matte collection they sent me for review and it has a wide range of colors to choose from.  When I received these for review there were only 10 in the collection, but they have since expanded to even more colors!  I absolutely adore matte polishes so I was excited to get these!

I don’t want to be too repetitive in each description, so I will just say now – all 10 colors were 2 coaters.  All of them were close to full coverage on just 1 coat though!  I did not use a top coat for them at all.

Feast your eyes on these gorgeous colors!



Ruffian is a gorgeous cobalt blue shimmery matte.



Vicious is a soft red shimmery matte.  I swear these apply like butter!



Bandit is an emerald shimmery matte beauty!



Another favorite!!  Rowdy is a purple matte with shimmer, but the shimmer is less obvious in this one than in the rest from the collection.



Mischief is a deep grey shimmery matte.  I really loved the look of this one.  In some lights you can see glints of green in the shimmer.



So when I pulled this one out of its bubble wrap, I got the song stuck in my head…

Desperado, why don’t you come to your senses? 
You been out ridin’ fences for so long now 
Oh, you’re a hard one 
I know that you got your reasons 
These things that are pleasin’ you 
Can hurt you somehow

Ok, Desperado is a bronze-brown shimmery matte!



My hands down favorite of the collection.  Matte Black.  I have already used this a number of times!  PERFECTION.



Sparkplug is a shimmery burnt orange.  This will be a Fall favorite!



Bohemian is a denim blue shimmery matte.  I didn’t have any staining issues on the blues in this collection which surprised me.  Usually I have some slight staining even with a base coat!



Brute is a deep royal blue matte.  If you are a blue lover, you NEED this one (you need all of them really).

I love this collection!  It has a great selection to choose from and it’s still expanding!  Since I received this set, 5 more shades have been added plus Mentality created a Pastel Matte collection!

My top picks for these are Rascal, Brute, Rowdy and Sparkplug!

Each polish in the Matte Collection is $6.50 or you can buy any 5 of them for $30.00

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

These are really pretty!! I usually prefer a shiny look, but these are nice…and I bet they’d all look really great with top coat too! Gorgeous swatches, Lisa!
