Chaos & Crocodiles ~ Squee


Chaos & Crocodiles ~ Squee
Pink, purple, and blue translucent neon hexes; matte hot pink, purple, and turquoise stars and hexes; and pink, purple, blue, and aqua shimmer in a clear base. Crikey!

Yesterday I showed you Ozotic’s scattered silver holo on its own – see that post here. I was a tease and kept you hanging – you knew I would never wear a silver polish on its own, holo or not! Yes, you did! So, what did I do with it? I used it as a base for a glitter polish: Chaos & Crocodiles “Squee”.

Squee is packed with glitter in various colours, shapes and sizes and it’s meant to be worn over another polish. And how better to show off all its colours and shapes than wearing it over a pretty silver? I know, right? :)

Take a squint at what Squee looks like:


What you see on each nail is the result of just one dip in the bottle. Yes, I did have to push the glitter around a bit to arrange it on the nails, but seriously: It’s totally worth the extra work!


I have always claimed that I wasn’t fond of big glitters, but it looks as if Chaos & Crocodiles can do something special with their glitters that I really like, because I simply love this!


The glitter itself doesn’t dry completely flat, so I applied a layer of Gelous and then a layer of Poshé topcoat to make this present itself the in prettiest way:


I probably took way too many pics, but I really want to show how pretty this is!


The silver holo underneath compliments this glitter really well. I went through a lot of base colours in my head, from black over burgundy to grey – and I’m so pleased I ended up with silver.


Burgundy actually wasn’t a bad choice either. I tried that on a nail wheel and it definitely works. It does tone down some of the translucent glitters though, and I didn’t want to do that in a review.

  
Alright, that’s enough pictures for now! It was hard to turn the camera off though, haha!

This is my second Chaos & Crocodiles (see the other one, “Bwahaha” here), and I’m very impressed. I thought I had all the glitter toppers I needed, but it seems that C & C have changed that idea.

  4. This is so fun! I love how big and colorful the glitters are... they really stand out against the base. :)
