Mentality "Tenderness" and my first blog post!!!

Hello! Welcome to Covered by Color and my first ever blog post! I'm completely new to blogging about anything nail polish related and look forward to embarking on this new journey! My ultimate goal is to make nail polish in the very near future.

Today did not go as planned at all! It was my initial goal to have a light box made and my fancy camera out. However in the process of working in the yard today I tore two of my nails so I now only have little nubbins! Haha! Then I came down with something! It is extremely difficult to paint your nails and blow your nose at the same time! I had to redo my mani three times!!!

Now onto the polish and my nails! Tonight's polish is from one of my absolute favorite indie polish makers, Mentality! This one is called Tenderness and is from their Black Light collection. It is described on their page as a multi chrome, colors gifting holographic polish. It shifts between red, bronze, and gold. I had complete coverage in one coat, but added a second for durability and lastibility purposes. I absolutely LOVE this color and formula. It went on like a dream despite my runny nose! (AHHHHchoo!) The top coat I used is HK Girl by Glisten and Glow. You can purchase your own Tenderness on Mentality's store page here. Now on to the pictures:

This polish was not given to me by the maker. I purchased it myself for my own personal use and enjoyment. The opinions expressed within this blog are my own and were not influenced in any way.
