Sometimes, I go into a bit of art with no inspiration and magic happens. This is magic (as opposed to tomorrows where I went in with no inspiration and …nothing happened). I wanted to create a post to show the differences between 4 Mentality polishes: the pinkish red matte Beautiful, the deep red matte Allure, and the gold + red glitters Euphoria and Rapture. What came out was this!
I kinda thought about doing vertical lines…but the scales just kinda dynamically popped out. I had grabbed some color-coordinated holos by Nabi and just started doodling. Ta-da!
What you can see when there ISN’T art over the polishes, is the differences between them. My pinky has Allure while my pointer has Beautiful. Allure is more of a “true” matte and is a much darker color, while Beautiful has a bit of a shine to it and appears almost matte-metallic. Both covered perfectly in two coats.
Rapture and Euphoria are a bit harder to tell apart. My ring finger has Euphoria while my middle finger has rapture. Euphoria looks more like a silver + gold combo with larger gold flakies, while Rapture is silver + gold + coppery red with reddish flakies. Both are stunning in the sunlight, and cover completely in two coats. Which one you prefer is up to you! I think Euphoria is a bit brighter, but Rapture is a bit more elegant.

The other fun thing here is that my boyfriend just got me a light box!!!!! So half of these photos come from my lightbox while the other half come from my normal set-up (aka taking photos in my bathroom). What do you think? Do I need a brighter way of lighting up the box or is it pretty good as is?
So much pretty! I keep trying to play with these polishes more but I really should vary my usage more 😀
