Creative musings in bright colors

Pink Reveal

Swirls and dots and stripes oh my! This look was loosely inspired by Kakine, but my rendition involved stamps and extra lines and dots (seriously, I am having a love affair with dots)!

The base color is another of the neon holos by Mentality, a bright pink called Scandal. This coming weekend I should have a post up comparing all the Mentality colors in this collection, since there are three pinks (Scandal – true pink, Alarm – red pink, and Excite – purple pink). Scandal is a very pretty bright true pink, with a scattered holo finish. She covers nicely in two coats.

I covered Scandal with a swirly stamp and black polish, and then added top coat. My go-to black polish is almost empty, so I’ve been using the matte-finish Rascal by Mentality, but I am always loathe to top coat it! So this mani took a turn for the unexpected, and I just left the black matte over tape + striping tape. And then added dots…because dots make everything better!

This mani was really easy and ended up looking rather awesome (at least to me).  My only complaint is how much I had to fiddle with the stamping plate…it is not etched super well and getting the curlicues to transfer was a pain in the butt!

If you want to pick up Scandal (or any of the other neon holos) you can find them at the Mentality Shop for $6.75 each. Enjoy!
