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!
~ Pink: Mentality – Scandal
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Black matte: Mentality – Rascal
~ Stamp: Bundle Monster – 201
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!
