The other Jellychrome matte by Mentality is Gala, a pale icy blue with beautiful pink and purple shimmer. This one also dries matte. And being me, I wanted to see how it would stamp! But I couldn’t just try it over black, I wanted it over black AND white…so I put this together. I wish I had stuck to one color!
Gala was a bit less opaque than Spree…she needed 3 slightly thicker coats to be opaque. Still fast drying, and the shimmer came through very strongly (probably as a result of the jelly consistency). Love this color! So perfect for winter, but in a soft way.
I debated doing a black-to-white gradient, but thought it would take too long so I just painted stripes of grey and black over a white base on two of my nails, and then stamped over it. Interestingly, over white Gala looks blue while over black all you see are the pink/purple shimmers. Grey…meh!
