Birthday Recap

Congratulations to the prize pack winners! I've already heard back from one of them but am still waiting for a shipping address from the other.

Thank you for all the orders tonight! Polishes are currently being packed. Shipping will begin on Tuesday after the winners of the Kitty Lasers giveaway have been randomly selected and contacted.

If you forgot to use the coupon code, please convo me and I'll take care of it for you. :-) The code is good until 6pm ET on October 1st.

I thought you might like to see one of the presents my wonderful and supportive husband gave me. It's an illuminated nail polish bottle display! It looks fantastic with my polish shelving and is perfect for displaying my most prized polishes!

Here it is in the dark! Love.

Do your family members "get" your nail polish addiction?

OOAK Polishes

Etsy Shop
The Chaos & Crocodiles Etsy shop is now closed in order to prepare for the restock. It will reopen on Sunday.

Special announcement 2 of 3: One of a Kind Polishes!
I will be releasing 4 One of a Kind (OOAK) polishes at the next restock. These are not samples, tests, or prototypes; they are true one-offs that were made just for this event.

I've saved the best announcement for last, so make sure to check in tomorrow! 

Chaos & Crocodiles New Release

General news
The next restock will be this Sunday at 6pm ET. Available polishes will be announced on Saturday.

Have you entered the giveaway yet? If not, don't wait too much longer, because it ends at midnight tonight!

Special announcement 1 of 3: Birthday release!
Please welcome the newest Chaos & Crocodiles polish to the line, Delighted! Delighted is a heartbreakingly beautiful polish made with various sizes of periwinkle, fuchsia, and purple glitter and a hint of purple shimmer in a clear base. It was love at first sight!

The fuchsia and purple glitter catch the light with a gorgeous glow and I just can't stop staring at my nails! This swatch shows 2 coats over OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

Check back tonight for the next special announcement!

Birthday Bash

My birthday is coming up on Sunday, September 30th, so let’s kick off the celebration with a giveaway! TWO winners will receive an awesome Chaos & Crocodiles prize pack that includes three limited edition nail polishes!

1 mini bottle of Cartjacked
Cartjacked has matte yellow, red, turquoise, and black hexes, matte turquoise diamonds, holographic sparkles, and matte black hearts in a clear base. It is not available in the shop because for this polish, "getting Cartjacked" should only be a good thing. ;-)

1 full-size bottle of Dream Theory
(shown at 3 coats, no undies, with top coat)
Dream Theory has an incredible mix of glitter (mostly holographic, but sadly my picture doesn't show how sparkly the polish is) in greens, blues, silver, and turquoise all in a teal-blue jelly base. It is limited to five full-size bottles - my bottle, two for the giveaway, and two that will be available for sale in the shop on my birthday.

1 mini bottle of Kitty Lasers
(shown at 1 coat over OPI Kennebunk-Port with top coat)
Kitty Lasers features two sizes of red circle glitter and also has silver and teal holographic glitter and purple and red hex glitter in a clear base. It is limited to eight bottles - one for me, two minis for the giveaway, two full-size bottles that will be available to purchase in the shop on my birthday, and three minis that will be given away randomly with a shop purchase on my birthday (details TBA).

This giveaway is open to fans with a U.S. mailing address. You can enter below or use the giveaway link at the top of the Chaos and Crocodiles Facebook page. Good luck!

Until recently, Chaos & Crocodiles news, updates, and pics have only been posted to Facebook and Twitter. But now that the shop has grown so quickly in the past few months (thank you!!!), I have decided that it is time to start a blog.

My hope is that this will make the flow of information easier to follow as well as give fans another way to connect. I've got some very exciting projects in the works and I can't wait to share them with you! 

So far, which Chaos & Crocodiles nail polish is your favorite?
