My First Post! Mentality Virginia and Majesty

*purchased by me*

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! 

Mentality polish can be purchased at mentalitynailpolish.com

Thanks for reading!

    1. My nephew said my colors looked very '90's, but he liked it. I'm glad you do too! You should definitely get some Mentality polishes. The few that I've used have a great formula and they really aren't that expensive.
