Lavender Lace

This is the last of the polishes I was sent to review by Mentality. But it is CERTAINLY not the least. I actually drooled when I opened this one, so I had to save it for when I had a really good idea. Voila!

The main polish here is the beautiful Moksha. The polishes covers nicely in two coats, was easy to control, and dried fast (no pulling on the second coat)! In addition to the ease of applying the polish, is the ease of just staring at it. It’s stunning.

Moksha is the pale pink/purple sister of Euphoria (gold/silver) and Rapture (silver/copper) that I have gushed about previously. This polish is so damn pretty I actually have 3 polish-only shots. That isn’t a thing I do.

This polish is predominately light pink and copper flakes with larger bits of reddish copper and a pink flash. The whole thing is holographic in the sun. Depending on the light (sun, direct light, indirect light) the polish looks different! Light pink in direct light, lavender + copper in indirect light, and a startling holographic glitter in sunlight. Gah. This polish has earned itself a place with my favorites.

Once I was done staring at the polish (it took a while), I did the art bit! The design is based off some art by Chasing Shadows. I did mine a bit different, but I still like it!

I matted the whole thing when I was done, and even matte Moksha is pretty. I left the sides of my thumb glossy, just for…sparkle effect.

So, awesome polish + awesome design = win! If you want to pick up Moksha for yourself (and if you like pink, glitter, holo, or all of the above I recommend you do so!) you can find her at the Mentality shop for $9.25 with free shipping to the US. In my opinion, totally worth it! Enjoy!
