Detonate is a beautiful true blue polish with a fairly strong holographic flare and glass flecks that hit pink, purple, and occasionally green. This polish took three thin coats to be opaque, self-leveled wonderfully, and is probably going to stay on my toes for the foreseeable future. I love the shade of blue, the glitter in it, the holo, and how fast it dried. Shown here without top coat.
Given the perfect sky blue with purple of the polish, I HAD to do a snowman scene! So here we go, snowmen. They look a slight bit demonic, but I still like them. I got my inspiration from Paulina’s Passions.

You can pick up Detonate from Mentality for $6.80 using my 20% off code EVA. It’s only good till the end of December, so buy it now or mourn forever! And pick up any other polishes you’ve had your eye on while you’re at it :-).
Just as a reminder, there were 4 jellychromes:
– Pink + gold matte (2 coats): Spree
– Pink + gold shiny (2 coats): Shatter
– Blue + purple matte (3 coats): Gala
– Blue + purple shiny (3 coats): Detonate
All 4 polishes were wonderful. I think if I absolutely had to pick, I would go for Spree and Detonate, just because the glitter density in Spree is breathtaking and I can never pass on a blue glass-fleck polish, but you won’t go wrong with any of them! Happy shopping!
