Vintage Streetwear - Monster Mash

Happy Hump Day my lovely readers! I have another quick post for you all today, this week is crazy busy for me. I hope to catch up on my blog reading and commenting tomorrow and I can't wait to see what you all have blogged about this week!

Today I have another vintage Halloween Streetwear for you all called Monster Mash. Monster Mash is from the same collection as Oct 31st and is as rare, if not even more rare than Oct 31st is. The fact that Oct 31st popped up on eBay was a miracle but then Monster Mash popped up a few weeks later and I was absolutely awestruck! After another pretty hefty bidding war, Monster Mash became mine and joined Oct 31st in my Streetwear helmer drawer. Oct 31st and Monster Mash are probably two polishes that I never thought I would see in my lifetime so the fact that they showed up on eBay around the same time was pretty fantastic. The moral of the story is never give up on those lemmings folks! You never know when they might show up.

Anyways, Monster Mash is a fantastic green glitter polish with different shades and shapes of green glitter including bar glitter and little hex glitter as well as microglitter. There's even a touch of black microglitter in there, which seems to be on par with a lot of other special Streetwear glitters (namely Oct 31st, Black Widow and FX Flash green). I chose to wear Monster Mash on its own but I'm sure it would have looked awesome layered as well. I estimate that this polish came out sometime during the late 90's and it was still good as new. 2 coats would have been sufficient enough to cover the nail in real life but I did 3 just in case.

Here's 3 coats of Streetwear Monster Mash. Enjoy!
