Chaos & Crocodiles Spam Part Deux

*Some of these items were press samples, some were purchased by me*

Hi everyone! Today I have a bit of random Chaos & Crocodiles swatch spam to share with you! These are all just delicious, so let's get on with the pics!

Party Games (over OPI You are Outta Lime) is a crazy glitter mash-up including all sorts of finishes (matte, holo, metallic, translucent neon) and shapes (squares, hexes, dots, stars) of blue, green, and yellow glitters (with a few silver glitters sprinkled in). I used 1 dabbed coat over my base color for this mani so I could evenly spread the larger glitters. Party Games will also require a thicker topcoat to smooth out the glitters since there are a lot of larger glitters including the shapes. This polish is definitely a party on the nails!

Narwhals Are Unicorns Too is a dusty light blue crelly filled with yellow and blue glitters (including some holo sparks) and blue shimmer. Formula was very opaque for a crelly and only required 2 easy coats for full opacity. This combination is so ethereal and pretty!

Reconnaissance (Secret Agent Collection) is a grape purple super linear holo. This polish is SO HOLO! The color is rich and gorgeous with an amazing rainbow arc on the nail. Formula was smooth and opaque at 2 coats. Gah, eventually I must own this entire collection because they are just fantastic holos!

Bluebeary (July Holo Grail Box Exclusive) is a beautiful creamy aqua blue holo. Formula was top notch and it was perfectly opaque in 2 coats. Because it has a creamy base, this polish isn't as whammo holo as the Secret Agent Collection, but it still has a nice flame. Bluebeary is just gorgeous and just looked dreamy on my nails.

Of these four, the only one that I know is permanently discontinued is Bluebeary, which was an exclusive to the July Holo Grail Box. Reconnaissance is part of the Secret Agent Collection which is a newer collection, so I'm sure we will see it again in the Chaos & Crocs shop as well as at her other e-tailers. The other two may make future appearances in the Chaos & Crocs shop because creator Sarey is always pulling oldies back in the shop for restocks, so just keep up on her blog to see if/when these babies might make a reappearance.

Chaos & Crocodiles polishes are available from their Big Cartel shop as well as from Llarowe, Mei Mei's Signatures, and Norway Nails. You can keep track of info on restocks and releases by following their blog and Facebook.

Aren't these just gorgeous? Which is your favorite? Thanks for looking everyone!
