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.
Looking to add a little pizzazz to your manicure? Adding a gorgeous top coat usually does the trick! Lucky for you, Mentality Nail Polish has you covered.
I have 8 different top coats to show you tonight from Mentality which range from a nice gloss to a gorgeous holo!
All of the following swatches are done over Mentality Scoundrel which is a semi gloss black creme polish (which is also a great stamping polish!). I wanted to do the same base for all of them since this is about the top coats. I only used 1 layer of top coat for each photo over 2 coats of Scoundrel.
Blue Flakie is a translucent blue jelly polish loaded with blue flakies that also give a slight pink flash.
Gold Flakie is a translucent yellow jelly polish loaded with gold flakies.
Red Flakie is a translucent pink jelly polish loaded with red flakies.
Multi Flakie is a translucent orange jelly polish loaded with multi colored flakie.
Holo is a nice silver linear holographic top coat that transforms any polish into a linear holographic.

What’s that? A MATTE holo? Yes indeed! This is the matte version of the Holo Top Coat! Turns any polish into a matte linear holographic. This is the only matte holo top coat I’ve seen before!

Suede and Regular
Suede is a shimmery matte top coat. For those who aren’t aware – when a polish is labeled as “suede finish” it generally means that it’s a matte polish with some shimmer in it. This is the only suede top coat I’ve seen – so instantly turn any shade into a Suede!
Top Coat is a clear glossy top coat. This is not a fast dry top coat and took about 8 minutes total to dry for me. Very glossy and it does apply clear even though it looks cloudy in the bottle!
Mentality does have one more top coat that I don’t currently have in my possession, which is Matte Top Coat. As it implies – it’s a top coat to turn any polish into a matte finish shade.
My Favorite Top Coat: Matte Holo – it’s completely unique to my collection!
Holo – $7.00
Matte Holo – $7.50
Flakies – $6.50
Suede – $6.50
Top Coat – $6.25
Scoundrel – $6.50
I really hope you enjoyed this post! As I said before, each top coat was applied over 2 coats of Mentality Scoundrel, only 1 coat of each top coat was used per photo.
You can purchase all of these shades on the Mentality Big Cartel Shop
