Creative musings in bright colors

Linear Flecks

Introducing Spree, by Mentality. Basically, all I did when I saw this polish was go “squee!” It was awesome. The boyfriend had to cover his ears. Why was I so excited? This is a glitter matte jellychrome. Translation: wonderfully dense matte fleck shimmer. Gold glitter/flecks in a beautiful pink base.

The wonderful thing about Spree…well, there are many. Despite being labeled as a jelly, this covered in two smooth easy coats. It is a pink based polish, but honestly looks more like a gold glitter polish with a pink base added for fun. It dries down matte but not gritty at all, and the drying time is pretty fast. Wonderful control, no streakiness at all. I even think this might end up being hospital-appropriate! (Well, I can hope at least).

I went ahead and added some black lines and deep pink dots (the idea came from jaxnails). This mani is 100% Mentality polish…the other two colors ares one I purchased myself some months back. Because it is my firm belief that Mentality makes the best mattes (want giant glitter bombs? KBShimmer. Want dense glitters? Shimmer Polish. Want mattes that knock your socks off? Mentality.) There is 0 top coat on this mani…its just three matte polishes in their natural state. It did take a bit longer to dry without quick dry top coat, but I think the result was worth it!

You can pick up Spree (or it’s holo/fleck glossy sister Shatter…or the blue versions of either polish…ok it gets complicated. The others will be up this week or next week but I HAD to show you all the golden glittery pink goodness!) at the Mentality website here. Spree is $8.25, and you get free shipping if you live in the US. Enjoy!
