Creative musings in bright colors

Frond and Sunset

I feel the need to post a bit of a warning. Unfortunately, I seem to be having a reaction to the solvent in the most recent batch of Mentality polish. This really just means that I’m going to try to review two polishes per post instead of the usual one, since wearing these polishes for multiple weeks (what usually happens when I swatch 12 polishes) would be unwise. So bear with me! If you have really sensitive nails (which I know I do), then I would advise you to wait for the brains behind Mentality to change their base (which is happening shortly, due to this sensitivity issue). Moving on to the nail art…

I started with two neon mattes here, an orange called Obliterate, and a purple called Nix. Obliterate and Nix both needed three coats to be opaque, but they applied easily and dried fast. They also look ridiculous next to each other like this!

Instead of doing a sponge gradient, I just painted on an orange-pink-purple gradient using Extirpate and Terminate (both of which you guys have already seen). I went in with black glossy polish and just free-handed some fronds!

Lots of dots and lines! You can pick up any of these neons at the Mentality Shop for $6.50. However, if you have sensitive nails please wait for the new suspension base so your nails don’t end up hurting!
