Mentality Vigilance

Mentality Vigilance
Sun
Hey all!  Today I have Mentality Vigilance for your viewing pleasure.  I had high hopes for this polish. It's a great shade of blue but it just fell flat for me once I put it on.  This was my first Mentality polish and I really did want to love it.  The formula was okay.  It took two coats for full coverage.  You can see in the shade picture that there were some weird lumps in the polish.

I do think this polish would be great for stamping.  I want to try it as a pedicure color as well before I give up on it completely.  Do you have any experience with this brand?  What's your favorite?

Have a great day!

Sara

*I bought this polish myself in a fit of online shopping.  I need to get control of that.  Or get rid of my computer.  Whatever works.*

  1. I know nothing of this brand but this color is lovely and I think it'd make a great pedi, too :) Btw I picked up some of that pink Sally remover and I like it alot, so much better than the Zoya! I only wish it smelled as nice, lol.

    1. I'm glad you like the remover. My husband was glad when I switched because he can't stand the way the Zoya smells. Thanks for stopping by.

  2. It looks so good on your nails! Can't really tell the little bumps in the sunlight picture but you can definitely see it in the other one. Still a pretty color :)

    1. Thank you! I'm going to try shaking it like crazy and see if that helps at all.

  3. Ooh what a bummer about the clumps because the color is gorgeous!! I'm familiar with this band nd generally really like their polishes so I'm really surprised about this... Don't give up on Mentality just quite yet!!

  5. Hi Sara! Hillary from Mentality here. I'm sorry to hear that you had a bad time with this polish! I would recommend adding a little thinner, maybe a couple more balls, if you happen to have any, and yes, shake like crazy. It sounds like some of the pigment might have clumped up. I agree with Gosia, don't write us off altogether. This is a very rare issue with our polish that I have usually only seen in test batches. This one must have slipped by...
