Mentality The Red Mattes Swatches and Review

by Lisa Heath

I have another fabulous Mentality matte collection on the blog today!  I know I’ve been quiet a bit more than usual, but work is picking up (tax season!) so I’ve been super busy!

Today I will be showing you the Red Mattes Collection!  These 5 shades are perfect for Valentine’s Day – or for any red lover!

As usual, the first photo in each set will show the polish as a matte and the second photo is what the same shade looks like with top coat on!



Lovely is a pretty deep pink matte with a hint of red shimmer.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Grace is a medium soft red matte.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

Beautiful is a bright medium red matte.  I used 2 coats for this photo.

The Red Mattes Ombre Mani


Here are all 5 shades used in one mani!  Such a beautiful set!

Ombre TC

And of course – with a top coat!


All 5 of these mattes were almost 1 coat polishes.  Each one looks great with or without top coat and the shimmer that comes out with top coat is just magnificent!  I had no staining issues, and like with all of the Mentality mattes, application was easy, dry time was quick and the pigmentation was excellent!

Price: $6.75

It’s almost worth getting the whole Red Matte collection just to be able to reproduce your amazing ombre mani! I’ve been eyeing Beautiful but this post makes me think I may need Stunning and Allure as well. Do you have a favorite amongst these five? Great post and I LOVE your new Swatch Gallery!

Stunning was probably my absolute favorite of the 5, but it’s hard to choose! So glad you love the gallery as well! Nick put a lot of work into it :D

These are so beautiful! I looooove how you can wear them as matte or glossy….I would probably top coat them myself :)
