Fade to Jade

I have been plotting this mani for three weeks…ever since I knew Mentality was sending me a jelly polish! Meet Mona, a beautiful slightly shimmery green jelly polish. Isn’t she squishy?!


Mona covers nicely in three thin coats. At two I could still see visible nail line, but by 3 everything was gone. She has a nice shimmer that is somehow not even remotely streaky (which I enjoy) and is a beautiful true emerald green.


My pointer, middle, and pinky fingers all have three additional layers of Mona. The pointer has three layers of white dots (first layer was at the base of my nail, second was in the middle of the nail, and the last layer was at the free edge of the nail mostly). Middle finger has three free-handed white chevron patterns, the bottom-most one has 3 thing layers of Mona over it, the top (tiny) one only has 1 layer. The pinky got various swirls.


Overall, I think Mona is just a bit too pigmented to be my perfect jelly, but this does mean I can wear her alone (I don’t think the OPI sheer tints would ever layer to opacity on their own!). The other polish here is a thermal mint-to-green shimmer called Shade Shift 28 by Dear Rus.


Oddly, I don’t think Mentality carries Mona any longer (boo!) but they just (this weekend!) released their new Jellycreme collection, so go check it out!

  1. I just love how you did the ring finger and thumb – but the whole look is really pretty!

    • haha I didn’t actually do anything to the ring finger and thumb…that is the thermal polish just making a pretty gradient on its own! but thanks!

  2. Oh my Gosh! Blow my mind! So beautiful’!!!
