Mentality Nail Polish The Pink 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.

Mentality Nail Polish has released a gorgeous set of pink matte nail polishes!  These 5 shades are perfect for an ombré manicure or even gradient nails!

I am a lover of all things matte, so I’m always thrilled to expand my matte collection!



Contessa is a baby pink matte with the slightest hint of shimmer throughout it.  I used 2 coats for this photo.



Duchess is a pale rosy pink matte.  I used 2 coats for this photo.



This is my favorite of the 5 shades!  This is a beautiful rose pink.  There is a pretty subtle shimmer throughout Empress!  I used 2 coats for this photo.



Sorceress is another beauty.  This is a purple toned pink matte.  I only needed 2 coats for this photo.



Maven is a beautiful steel pink matte.  Another favorite!  I used 2 coats for this photo.

My Ombré Manicure:


Much like other Mentality matte’s I own, these have great application!  You don’t have to rush when applying, they dry fast, but not as fast as OPI mattes do.  Make sure each layer is dry before applying the next as well for best results!

My Top Picks:  Contessa, Empress and Maven!

You can purchase all of these shades from the Matte Pink 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.

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

Make sure you check out Mentality Nail Polish on Facebook HERE for updates as well as more swatches!

I do have the Blue Matte Collection to post soon as well!  Same concept of this set, just a different color family!  You will LOVE them!

THIS IS FANTASTIC! I’m not a huge fan of mattes on myself, so I’d probably top coat it (I’m a party pooper) but the ombre effect is just stunning!

Lisa July 28, 2013 - 8:17 pm

Aww lol – they still look good with a glossy top coat, so its ok ;)

Emily Lacquerologist July 28, 2013 - 6:00 pm

And PS: I can’t wait to see the blue mattes…those are going on my wishlist!

Lisa July 28, 2013 - 6:00 pm

I’m hoping to start on them tonight and have them posted by Wednesday at the latest!

Wow ok I think I need all of these except Contessa…..then again if they stamp I might need that one too ;)

Lisa July 28, 2013 - 8:08 pm

I’ll have to test that out when my stamper comes in!
