Falling Leaves French

THE 31 DAY CHALLENGE IS OVER! Unfortunately, I am almost out of nail art! I have todays and tomorrows…and that’s it. I need to get some painting done! For your viewing pleasure today is a fall-themed quasi-french manicure with branches and falling leaves.


All 4 polishes used in this bit of art come from the Textured Earth Tone line by Mentality (and all were sent for review). This was a very straight-forward design, and took maybe 20 minutes. Yay for fast drying polishes!


The base is Arriccio, a pinked-out yellow (if that even makes sense). It is a yellow color with a pink tinge, but it is stubbornly NOT orange! Shown here is two coats of Arriccio, slightly textured and fast drying. I might add that so far all of the Textured Earth Tone polishes that I’ve tried have been very easy to remove (unlike conventional textured polishes). I’ll give a further review when I go through all the polishes in a week or so!


~ Yellow: Mentality – Arriccio
~ Cream: Mentality – Gesso
~ Black: Mentality – Asphalt
~ Pink: Mentality – Cocciopesto



I will say this, I have trouble with the names of these polishes! I love the matte slightly textured finish, but all the “earthy” names are wrecking havoc on my memorization skills! I take pride in knowing, by sight, the names of 97% of the polishes that I own. I am going to have to take that number down a few percent after this :-/
