Hi ya'll! Today is my first post, and I'm a little nervous so bear with me. I'm excited to show you my mani using Mentality Virginia and Majesty.
I've been participating in a summer of untrieds challenge that my friend Julie from Wishes of a Blue-Eyed Girl created. Yesterday's theme was matte so I decided to use Mentality Virginia, which is part of the pastel mattes collection and is described as a light teal matte polish. I think it's more of a mint green on me though, and Majesty which is described as a light-medium red purple matte polish.
I'm not usually a fan of matte polishes on me, but I do like both of these. I had some issues with the polish looking cracked so this is three coats of each over Nailtiques formula 2. I think if I used a ridge filling basecoat I would have only needed to do two coats.
I decided to have some fun with this mani and add some dots.
I used my largest dotting tool to get this look.
Finally, I wanted to see what these polishes look like with topcoat. I used one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.
There isn't much of a difference with the topcoat, but you can see some shimmer in them which is nice.
What do you think of this mani? Are you a fan of matte polishes? Let me know!
