Mentality - Welcome to the Dark Side...Holos

Happy Blogaversary to meeee!! One year ago today, Fox Claws was born! This has been a crazy awesome year and I wouldn't change a thing! I want to thank you guys for encouraging me, commenting on posts, checking out my Book Of The Face, and supporting our Etsy store. I love you all!

Tonight I've got the stunningly gorgeous (and ridiculously affordable) Dark Side Holos from Mentality Nail Polish! These beauties are 3 free, fully opaque in 2-3 coats, and dry to a soft satiny finish on their own, or a beautiful high gloss one with a top coat. I was super impressed by the formula! Go commando with this one ladies - No undies necessary! The formula is thin enough to achieve a nice, even finish, and thick enough that it sticks to the nail and doesn't run down into your cuticles. These photos were taken with very little clean up because, well, I didn't need to clean up! Superb! Also! I hear that they stamp beautifully, and I can't wait to put them to the test! If you've used the Dark Side Holos with your stamping plates let me know in the comments :)

Disclaimer: This polish was sent to me for an honest review. 

Alright, alright, enough chatter! On to the f0t0z!

First up is VAMP! Vamp is a very, very dark - almost black - deep blue holo with tiny purple flecks. This is 2 coats of Vamp with one coat of SV.

Vamp - Micro Bottle Shot

Next up is one of my new personal favorite polishes ever, SIREN. Siren is a rich burgundy-red-purple holo with little purple flecks throughout. I really loved this color and wore it for a few days with zero wear. This is 2 coats of Siren and 1 coat of SV.

Last but not least we have MINX. Minx is described as a blackened green holo with purple flecks. While it threw kind of 'black' in my photos, the green tinge was more obvious in person. This is 2 coats + 1 coat of top coat.

So what do you think? I was thoroughly impressed by the coverage and formula of these pretties and the holo was gorgeous in the sun! If you've never checked out Mentality before, The Dark Side holos are a solid place to start and you will not be disappointed.

You can find Mentality on Facebook, or on Big Cartel. The Dark Side Holos are $7 each (SHIPPING INCLUDED!), or $18 for a full size trio set. And heads up international ladies! Mentality will begin shipping internationally soon!  AND if you act fast you can use SALE25 to score 25% off of your order until July 1!

WHEW that was a lot of awesome! Switching gears for a second! As I stated before, today is my 1 year blogaversary and in July I turn 29 for the first time (LOL) so my polish making and loving friends and I are going to be celebrating with a faaab giveaway starting July 1st so keep your eyes peeled for that. One of the requirements will be following this blog with GFC or Bloglovin' so if you want to get that step out of the way NOW it will save your some time later ;) I can't wait to give some stuff away! WOO!! And check out Mentality!

Anyway, if you're still with me, thanks :) Happy Hump Day! #DFTBA!
