One of my favorite manis from early on was ruined by two things: 1) the lack of a black matte polish, and 2) my inability to clean my cuticles. This mani officially solves both of those problems.
The main solution came in the form of a recent impulse-buy, Rascal by Mentality. I had been craving a black matte, and I wanted to try Mentality polish! Luckily, some of the polishes (including Rascal) went on sale, so I grabbed it! It only took one coat to cover all my rainbow colors, dried nicely (as mattes tend to do) and lasted a whopping two days without cracking (which is impressive for a matte polish).
I kept running my fingers over the textured goodness! I had covered the rainbow base layer with top coat, to increase the shiny factor. The black was wonderful and velvety.
I was hoping for nails with blue/green/purple as the central colors, but sadly, my yellow and orange seem to dominate. Darn bright colors! As you might have guessed, this is what my Rainbow Stripes mani that I posted a few days ago ultimately became. If you would like a list of colors, check out that post!
Ok. At this point it is just photo spam because I love rainbows, and I think the texture contrast looks awesome.
Last one I promise. Hope you enjoyed!!
