Rolling Pink Hills

Today I get to introduce you to one of the newest Mentality polishes, from the matte jellychrome line, Hoopla! I combined her with three other polishes from the same line and made some crazy wave/weave pattern


Hoopla is a hot (and I do mean hot!) pink polish with a very vibrant blue glass fleck shimmer that fades to purple at sharp angles. The polish is easy to control (maybe slightly thick) and covers in three thin coats (hence JELLYchrome…that is why there is so much shimmer!). This polish dries matte.



Although the polish is quite pretty, it is a pain to remove. Due to the glitter density, it takes forever to get off! It isn’t as bad as a ‘real’ glitter polish because here the glittery bits are small, but it isn’t fun. Just to warn you!


Inspiration for the wave design came from Liane Casagrande. It was kinda fun to see the other two matte jellychromes (both varying shades of orange-pink) against Hoopla!


~ Hot pink: Mentality – Hoopla
~ Orange pink: Mentality – Bash
~ Orange gold: Mentality – Spree
~ Pale pink: Revlon – Calla Lilly


Hope you enjoyed! If you like Hoopla, you can pick her up for $8.25 at the Mentality shop. Such a fun color!

  1. Had you had bad experiences with Elmer’s Glue as a base coat and chose not to use it here for easy glitter removal?

    • Well, first off, I had no idea this would be hard to remove! Most of my Mentality polishes (including the other one from this line that I’ve played with) removed like standard polishes. However, my nails are a bit brittle right now and I’m trying to avoid glue unless I absolutely have to

  2. BTW, I love the design with the open space that shows up as neutral. Do you polish around the “oval” and then outline it after polishing the rest of the nail? And the “golden” swag also is very pretty!
    You got such good control over a detail brush or pen. I could never do that, maybe JUST now but definitely now 🙂

    • Yup! I started with the nude, painted on the other colors (just using the brushes in the polish) and then outlined everything with black polish and a thin detail brush.
