Chaos & Crocodiles ~ Bwahaha

Chaos & Crocodiles ~ Bwahaha
Clear base with 3 sized circle glitters, stars and hexagons; purple neon, holo, metallic and matte glitters

Do you know the feeling of loving everything about a polish? That’s how I felt when I saw this Bwahaha made by Chaos & Crocodiles. I absolutely love the brand name – I have a soft spot for Crocodiles and never expected it seen in connection with nail polish! "Bwahaha" is a really funny and cool name. And glitters, well, you must know by now that I love it! ♥

Bwahaha is a clear base absolutely packed with lovely glitter in various sizes, shapes and colours. I spent a fair time considering which polish I should layer it over. Black was just  too obvious, and so I chose the most vibrant blue I’ve got: China Glaze “Frostbite”. (There’s a pic at the end of the post).

When the base colour was dry, I applied the glitter. I have never ever seen so much glitter in one bottle. When I review glitters, I usually dip the brush only once in the bottle per nail, so that I can accurately report on the product density, without misleading anyone. But I actually had to wipe some of the glitter off the brush for each dip, here. I didn’t have enough room on my nails for what the brush scooped out with each single dip in the bottle, LOL!

I had to dap the glitter around with the brush to spread it out, but that’s quite normal for a glitter like this. When that was done I applied a layer of Gelous, and after that: A layer of Poshé topcoat. Let me show you how pretty it is:

I love the mix of glitters! I never thought I’d like the XL circle glitters, but it’s just perfect in this mix!

Isn’t this just a fantastic mani? Look, there’s stars!

I’m glad I picked this vibrant blue as my base. I wanted to make sure that the pink and purple popped nicely, and that just works!

I’m impressed!

I promised you to show you the base colour alone. So here’s two coats of China Glaze’s “Frostbite”. It’s the most vibrant blue I own.  Delicious, huh?

There’s another cool thing I want to show you! Each bottle of Chaos & Crocodiles is delivered with 3 little origami stars:

You have probably guessed that I *really* like this glitter. I liked it even before I tried it on! There was just as much glitter in the bottle as could possibly be fitted in. The consistence was a bit thick, perhaps - but it wasn’t the clear base, it was because of the glitter. Be prepared for some pushing around with the brush – but it’s oh SO worth it. Yes Yes! Oui Oui! Si Si! Ja Ja! Da Da!
