Next order of business - I got my very first indie polish. I have been aching to get my hands on some holo polishes, but I could never bring myself to spend so much on them. Mentality Polish is amazing. Hillary at Mentality has metallics, holos, and microglitters, and the one that stuck out to me was the holo top coat. Perfect solution for anyone wanting a bunch of holo colors - just get the top coat and you've got your entire collection in holo! I'm so in love. The consistency is great, and it is just beautiful. This has been sitting here waiting for me, so I literally finished the challenge and started painting. The entire Mentality Polish line can be purchased on Etsy, and the best part is that it's free shipping! For my mani, I used Julep Eloise and coated it in Mentality holo topcoat. I did NYC Matte topcoat on the pinky, a stamp from Pueen-25 on my ring finger, a simple hex glequin stripe down the center of my middle finger, a ray pattern with striping tape on my index finger, and the holo topcoat alone on my thumb. IN. LOVE.

Double Dippin' - 3 day naked challenge & Mentality Holo Mani!
So I've been STRUGGLING not to paint my nails for the past three days because I was busy taking the Pure Nail & Cuticle Oil 3 day challenge. Basically, for 3 days, you go naked on your nails and apply the oil to your nails and cuticles, and compare your before and after. This stuff is amazing. I have notoriously bad cuticles and nails that are always suffering from cracking and breaking; it sucks. But no more! The oil just conditioned my skin and healed it, and made my nails so much more flexible, giving them a lot more strength. I will probably never use another cuticle conditioning product again; I'm addicted. Pure Nail & Cuticle Oil can be purchased here.
