Mentality ~ The Metallics Collection

Hey dolls! I have a new indie brand to share with you called Mentality. The first collection from this wife and husband duo is called The Metallics and consists of five shades, described as the colors of the rainbow meet the wealth of gold. All of the pictures below are with top coat.
Envy is described as a bright yellow green with gold undertones and flakes. The formula was very pigmented and was almost opaque in one coat, but two coats were used for depth. I liked Envy in the bottle, but I'm not a fan of it on my skin tone.
Crave is described as a light purple with gold and blue undertones and gold flakes. This shade pulled very pink on me. Crave had the sheerest formula of all of the polishes in the collection, but it wasn't problematic. Two coats were used in the photos below.
Covet is described as a blue green with gold undertones and flakes. I had no issues with the formula and opacity was achieved in two coats. Covet is an interesting color; I like the way it looks on me.
Desire is described as a golden orange with gold undertones and flakes. You all know I like oranges, so  Desire is fine by me. Two coats were used in the photos below.
Lust is described as a coppery red with gold undertones and flakes. Lust is hands down my favorite in this collection! The gold shimmer really stands out, which I adore. Lust reads more orange on me than red, so it's a winner in my book. I took so many pictures of this one! Two coats were used in the photos below and these were taken in my light box due to rainy weather. As a side note, I did have slight staining with Lust, so be sure to use a good base coat.
I like that Mentality is bringing us indie creations that aren't just glitters. If you are interested in learning more about this brand, please check out the facebook page and the online store where you can place your orders now. Full size bottles (15mL) are currently available for $6 each.

Metallics usually don't do anything for me and this collection is no exception. You did a great job with the swatches, though. Beautiful pics, as usual!
