Happy Saturday lovelies! Today's my grandmother's funeral and I can already say I am feeling somewhat relieved. You know? I'm talking about that feeling of peace you get once you accept the fact that a loved one's passing was actually in their best interest. That's me. Right now. Anyway, today's her funeral, so we are celebrating her life!
I have the privilege of reviewing for Chaos & Crocodiles Nail Lacquer, an indie brand known for amazing creativity and awesome holos. I am excited and honored to be able to share my thoughts on these polishes with you. You will not be disappointed, so let's get right to it...
The first polish is from the Once Upon a Unicorn Collection, which is new collection being launched tomorrow (more details below). Spun Sugar Magic is described by the maker as "a lavender/orchid holo with a hint of purple shimmer." This one is the perfect mixture of purple and pink. I'd classify as a pinkish purple, rather than a purplish pink. Hopefully that makes sense. The formula was impeccable and went on in two easy coats with no issues. I absolutely love the creamy nature of this holo! This is definitely my kind of pink...er...purple... :/
Wishing Star Sky is another gorgeous holo from the Once Upon A Unicorn Collection. It is described by the brand as "purple-leaning periwinkle holo with a hint of blue shimmer." I seriously LOVE this one so hard! It is the perfect dusty periwinkle, which is perfect for the spring. Again, the formula was amazing and gave me no issues during application. I used two coats for this mani. It had the same creamy consistency as Spun Sugar Magic, which is great!
The last polish I was sent to share with you is called Dragon Stories. This is a new addition to the Dreaming of Dragons series of polishes Sarey has been releasing lately. According to the maker, Dragon Stories is "fuchsia, purple, and blue multichrome flakies and a touch of holographic pigment in an indigo-leaning dark purple base." Man this is gorgeous! It is also a pain in the wazoo to photograph properly! I did my best, but I wish I had been able to capture more of the purple in the base and the flakies. Anyway, the formula was great and went on easily in three thin coats. I had no issues with application or staining with this one.
Ummmm...WOW! That pretty much sums up my thoughts on these three beauties from Chaos & Crocodiles. The Once Upon A Unicorn Collection is the brand's spring release and it is GORGEOUS!! I only had two of them to share with you, but there are a total of six. I will be picking up a couple of the other colors I really like. I am also really loving the Dragon Stories polish and a few others from the Dreaming of Dragons series. Hopefully the others will be available as well.
