Dancing Dots

So, I promised you busy a comparison post, and here it is! I keep my promises 🙂


We have, from pinky to pointer, a “true” matte+textured polish (Emotions by OPI), a Mentality matte+textured polish (Asphalt by Mentality), a true matte polish (Rascal by Mentality…best polish ever), and a black creme (Black on Black by Sinful Colors). As you can see, Asphalt is ever so sightly textured, which is to say it doesn’t have the velvety smooth finish of the true matte. It is, however, NOTHING like the “real” textured polish! As a result, it is much easier to remove and applies more like a matte polish. It does not glitter though.


If left to my own devices, I would probably stray towards true mattes and true textured polishes, but some of the Mentality textured mattes are really cool. I am putting together a swatch post for this weekend for you guys, and I’ll include there the colors that I really think are unique and worth getting with this finish.


Because I can’t NOT do art (really, if I walked into lab with plain nails I think I would die of shame at this point), I added some various sized pink dots in matching tones and finishes! The textured one is Make Him Mine by OPI, the matte one (middle and ring nails) is Coccopesto by Mentality, and the creme one is Private Viewing by Wet n’ Wild.


Anyway, I hope you enjoyed this little comparison! Mixing textures is fun 😀
