Offbeat by Mentality Nail Polish

Hi NaiLovelies!

It feels like it’s been quite a while since I last posted a swatch of a regular nail polish and even longer since I posted a mani of an indie brand.  So, without further ado I have a swatch of some holo goodness by Mentality Nail Polish, Offbeat.  It’s a beauty!

Offbeat is from the Mentality Dark Variant Holo collection.  It is blackened teal however, on me it leans straight up blue, and a really gorgeous shade of blue at that.

On my nails there is a real stormy quality to the colour of this polish which makes it a very easy blue/teal for me to wear.  So, teal-ish blue or blue-ish teal, I don’t mind whichever it is as I have nuff love for it nonetheless.

The application of this polish is like the other Mentality polishes I own – hassle free.  It is uber-creamy and is very pigmented.  In fact, I think this could be a one-coater, but my preference is to apply two coats to ensure full coverage.

I find that I have to work quickly with this and the mattes as they dry quickly.  I have to remember not to overwork the polish (it’s not gel polish Tracey!) in order to prevent dragging.  The brush is a delight to work with.  For me these brushes make the whole experience even better – I could go on and on about how much I love the brushes but I don’t want the polish to start getting all jealous so I’ll just leave it at – yeah, the  brush is nice!!

The polish dries quickly and has a satiny, low gloss finish which is transformed to shiny wonderfulness with a single coat of topcoat.

My bottle of Mentality Offbeat is from my first ever order purchased last year. Along with this one, I picked up Kablooey, Distinct, Resilience, Tempest, Monsoon and my beloved Gumdrop from the Candy Holos collection.  I still have a few untrieds in my collection (despite using some for a spot of stamping) so I will be back with swatches of those soon - along with the 7 new ones I purchased recently from Sally Magpies adding 5 more of the Candy Jelly Holos to my collection, and a few others.... 

[Would be rude not to seeing as they have 50% discount at the moment - visit Sally Magpies Facebook page for the discount code].

The Newbies meet the Trailblazers!

I love all the indie polishes I own. So much so, I just can’t bear to swatch, remove and move on…. I need to actually wear these beauties so it takes a while to work them into my polish/gel rotation. 

However, keep your eyes on the blog, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter for updates on my new manis over the next few days as I will be swatching like a beast.  I’ll be showing you some Mentality polishes to whet your appetite for those on offer which you could get your hands on by entering my giveaway.
