Mentality Polish Rascal

It's morning time again and that means another post for you to enjoy!!  I'm moving back to the US indie brands today and I am excited to feature a brand I haven't tried yet!  Mentality Polish is a brand that has been around for about a year now and Hillary has put out some really amazing collections!  With mattes, holos, stampers, duochromes and more there is something for everyone!  Aside from having a large range the polish is priced at a reasonable price with most sitting around $7 - $8.  You can purchase Mentality from the online store, Etsy (there is a special through the end of September, spend $30 and get 20% off with code MENTALITY at checkout).  You can also follow Mentality on Facebook and Instagram (mentalitynailpolish) to keep up on news and promotions!  


This is Rascal.  Rascal is part of the mate collection and is described as "a black matte with very subtle shimmer."  The shimmer is actually quite noticeable and pretty!  It actually reminds me of chalkboards - so if you were looking for a polish to do chalkboard nails with this would be a perfect base!  Rascal had nice creamy formula that was easy to work with.  I'd suggest thin coats so you can keep the layers level.  Depending on your nails you will need 2-3 coats of polish.  I used 2 coats and no topcoat.  

I wanted to jazz Rascal up a bit so I did a waterfall mani!  I'm so pleased with how it came out!  I used Lalya Marshmallow, Urban Outfitters Silver Holo and Jordana Black Sparkle in alternating vertical lines.  This trio of sparkly silvers really pop over the black matte!  I did not use topcoat.
