Chaos & Crocodiles Echos, Reflections, and Shadows

*Press Samples*

Hi everyone! Today I have a gorgeous trio for you from Chaos & Crocodiles that is going to be available for pre-order this Saturday (August 30). This pre-order will also include the beautiful Secret Agent Collection and the special polish that was created specifically for CosmoProf in Vegas called Operation Vegas. Now let's have a closer look at this brand new trio!

All three of these polishes have jelly bases and a combination of 5 holographic glitters and pigments which isn't quite like anything that I've seen before. The varying sizes of the holo bits floating in the deep jelly bases creates a sparkly, almost galaxy-like effect on the nail. The formula was the same on all three of these and applied perfectly. They are quite opaque at 2 coats, but I did 3 thin coats for picture purposes (because jellies can be notoriously tricky to photograph). Also, surprisingly, these weren't incredibly topcoat hungry like a lot of microglitters tend to be. I used 1 coat of KBShimmer Clearly on Top and they were glassy smooth. These polishes are so fab, I just want them in every color on the planet!

Reflections is a deep blue jelly with holographic sparkle. Just look at that depth! Do you see what I mean by galaxy effect?

Echoes is a cranberry red jelly with holographic sparkle. This one looks more red in lower light and has pinker tones when it's in the sunshine. Such a gorgeous color for fall!


Shadows is a deep dark purple jelly with holographic sparkle. This one was tricky to photograph because it almost wanted to look black in some pictures, but it is definitely an intense vampy purple in real life. Just look how it sparkles in the sunshine!


As I said, these will be available for pre-order on Saturday, August 30 during two different hour-long windows (from 12PM to 1PM EDT and then from 9PM to 10PM EDT) on the Chaos & Crocodiles website. Chaos & Crocodiles polishes are also available from Mei Mei's Signatures and Norway Nails. You can keep track of info on restocks and releases by following their blog, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter

What do you think of these beauties? Are you going to be taking part in the pre-order? Thanks for looking everyone!
