Mentality Nail Polish Scandal & Alternative to Gala

If you would like an safer alternative to Mentality Nail Polish 'Gala', Model's Own Indian Ocean works perfectly! Just layer two coats over a turquoise base (I used Zoya Rocky below), and top with a matte topcoat.

During Mentality Nail Polishes Black Friday sale, I picked up Gala, and Gumdrop. I've heard really great things about the Mentality brand so I was excited to finally try it out for myself, and I was not disappointed! 

Gala: is a blue matte jelly chrome with glass flecks that shifts red, orange, yellow, to green. Two coats, no topcoat. This color reminds me of sea glass, it's super pretty. (Just a note though, make sure to wear a base coat with this,  I got some light staining when I wore it.) 

Gumdrop: is a blue jelly holographic nail polish. Three coats, plus Seche Vite topcoat. Not the most rainbow-y holo I've seen, but it's still a really gorgeous polish.
