Henna Allure

This was a super simple manicure, but I have been wanting to try a henna pattern on my nails for a while and I wanted to play with my Mentality polishes before these sale went away to give you guys some ideas!

So, here we have Allure by Mentality (with no top coat or anything…just the lovely deep red polish by itself) with a henna-inspired design for an accent. This mani was FAST. Like, 30 minutes or less from start to finish.

Allure (which I bought myself) is a deep wine red/pink polish which dries insanely fast (work quickly with it!) and is opaque in two thin coats. I had no trouble controlling the polish (it needed almost no clean up) and it is STUNNING. The other two colors used here are Chantal and Louise by Zoya, with a matte top coat and a little gold glequin for some sparkle.

My inspiration for this design came from @polianaalvess, and I really think I did a pretty good job!

Remember, you can use the code EVA to get 20% off any order from Mentality from now until the new year! Allure can be picked up for $5.40 with my code. Enjoy!!
