Mentality Polish ~ Neon Blue Opaque



Mentality Polish ~ Neon Blue Opaque
Neon blue matte stamping polish

Just like yesterday I’m trying it as a regular polish and as a stamping polish over both black and white.

So again: I painted my pinkie and my pointer with the neon blue. The polish covers really well, it is a stamping polish after all. I applied two coats, because this polish dries so fast that I wasn’t able to apply it evenly enough in one coat. I applied a layer of topcoat, and that helped making it all look good!

Here’s what the Neon Blue is about:

 
Now to the stamping. The Neon Blue dries just as a fast as its neon green sister, so I had to work just as fast to make it work. I needed to apply a thick layer onto the stamping plate, scrape and in the same movement: pick up the polish with the stamper. It’s a challenge, but it can work.


I made a few fails before I got the look I was after, but I was glad to see it work over both black and white.


Verdict:
I love that Neon Blue Opaque works over both black and white underwear. It’s a really pretty blue on its own, but it does require topcoat to even out irregularities made by the fact that it dries so fast. I don’t mind topcoat at all. Again; it’s not a polish for beginners into stamping because it does require some really fast working. 


EDIT: This polish is no longer in my possesion. I sent it back after I heard about the issues with Mentality's base. I wouldn't dare to wear it again.
Number of coats: 1 or 2
Drying time: Fast. Like Really fast!
Finish: Matte neon stamping polish
Overall impression: I’m impressed, both by its stamping abilities and the drying time  
Buy again: No
