Matte and Charmes

Mentality has an amazing line of matte polishes you must check out!! The great thing about matte polishes is that they are two polishes is one. Add a top coat and you have a second polish, usually with a beautiful shimmer you can't really see in the matte form.

This amazing matte black-navy by Mentality is called Withstand. The formula is amazing and covers in two coats. 

When working with any matte polishes you have to work quickly. They tend to dry fast, so there is no time for manipulating the polish. A quick one-two swipe of the brush is all you get.

This pic is great! It shows the navy color much better and the true matteness (is that word?).

I couldn't resist adding a nice thick coat of HK Girl top coat. Look at that shimmer and gloss!!! 

I also added one of my new charms from Daily Charme. This is Alice's Tiara. These charms are so cute and fun! I'm looking forward to an event that I can wear them to, like a wedding.

This Mentality matte is called Valor, a violet-black matte. I used Illamasqua Glitterati on the accent nail topped with Essie Matte About You, my favorite matte top coat.

Maybe you can see on my middle finger where I had a little trouble with my application. I guess I wasn't quick enough. :(

I love this polish with a top coat! 

It looked so dainty, so I added a Daily Charme, the Mini Bow.

I used top coat to secure my charms because I was only using them temporarily. They suggest using a little nail glue to make them more secure. These are super durable and reusable.

I have a few more Mentality polishes to show you and Daily Charmes too!! Stay tuned for those in the future!
