Chaos & Crocodiles Après-ski, Charmed, & Silent Wings: Swatches and Review

Purchased by Me
Hey guys! After some time off for the holiday season, it's time to get back to a regular routine. How about a few Chaos & Crocodiles polishes to start us off? These were purchased right after Thanksgiving, which was her last restock. If you have been following Chaos & Croc's Facebook page, there are more flakie polishes to come, so hopefully a restock will be happening soon. 

Chaos & Crocodiles Après-ski 
Layered over Pahlish Brand New Baubles
Clear based topper of white, powder blue, and aqua glitter with white & aqua shimmer.
Pretty much perfect for winter! I don't see a lot of snow in Texas but I can enjoy the romanticism of it on my nails without the actual chill. This is especially nice over a darker color, you can see that colored shimmer better. 

Chaos & Crocodiles Charmed 
Layered over American Apparel African Violet
Clear base with pink to purple to copper flakes. 
Mmmmm them flakes. The color transition is amazing, best over a darker base. Charmed has two versions, one is meant as a topper, the other version has more flakes and could be worn by itself, I got the first topcoat version.

Chaos & Crocodiles Silent Wings
Layered over Sinful Gel Tech Mirror Mirror
Clear base with copper to green to gold. 
I am not sure if I chose the best color to layer Silent Wings over but I wanted to try something besides black. There are just so many colors that peak through when you angle your nails this way and that. And easy to apply, with just one layer of topcoat. Again, this is the topcoat version of Silent Wings, as opposed the extra flake, more opaque version.
