Creative musings in bright colors

Toxicity

More Mentality polish (we’re almost done with this collection, and I have grand plans to do a whole-collection post one weekend) and another tape mani!

The base for this polish is a light orange neon holo called Jolt. Jolt took three coats to be opaque, but dried fast and was easy to control. This color makes me think of the very very old carpet at my grandmother’s house…which is both a good and a bad thing. On me, this color is fugly, but also kinda fun! I have a hunch that I’ll be using it again.

The art was inspired by Yagala, only she did a bare bottom-half of her nail. I meant to use a creme for my green, but decided instead on a 100% Mentality mani, so I pulled out a dark green metallic instead of a creme. I still like it!

My goal here was to find the colors that clashed the hardest. I was torn between using pink and purple, but settled on pink simply because the polish was brighter. So yes, this mani is intentionally painful to look at 😀

You can find all three colors used in this mani at the Mentality Shop. Jolt (and Excite) are $6.75. Happy polishing!
