Snowflowers

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!

  1. Gosh gala is pretty. Im loving these matte shimmers. I really liked the way it stamped over black white and grey. A very pretty mani:)

    • thanks! the matte shimmers are AWESOME. And I didn’t mention it, but the ‘sunlight’ photo of Gala was taken on day 3 of the mani. 0 chips. Which is basically unheard of for a matte. I was super impressed!

  2. That stamping is so beautiful!

  3. I think your stamping turned out great 🙂 You can always do another mani with just the black or the white. Maybe alternate, or do an accent. Thank you for sharing.
