Another new Mentality polish today, Fete! I wanted to try this one as soon as I saw it, and it was so pretty I tried not to cover it up 😀 Something about purple…yum.
Fete is another one from the matte jellychrome collection, and it is stunning. Dark purple base absolutely packed with yellow/green glass flecks. The flecks appear golden green when you look directly at them, and fade to greenish blue at an angle. This polish dries really REALLY fast…so you need to work quickly! However, it is nicely thick and so goes on well (fast). Fete covered in three thin coats.
Like Hoopla (from yesterday), Fete is darn near impossible to remove. All of the wonderfully pretty glass flecks make for a removal headache! Still worth it in my opinion, but I strongly recommend some peel-off base coat under this!
~ Purple gold: Mentality – Fete
~ Purple blue: OPI – Ink
I went ahead and did some simple striping tape and dots on my nails. I tried to do a gradient with Ink by OPI, but it only somewhat worked. Glitter!! I also added top coat, mostly so that the dots would actually dry. I love the look of this polish both matte and shiny!
If you want to pick up Fete, she can be found for $8.25 at the Mentality web site. Such a fun polish!
