Midnight Snowball Fight: Chaos & Crocodiles and Elevation Polish Collaboration Duo - Twin Post with Adventures In Acetone

Hi everyone! Today I have a special post for you. My friend Jacki from the blog Adventures In Acetone and I decided to do a sort of twin post on an amazing duo of polishes we both got recently.

This is Midnight Snowball Fight which was a limited edition duo created by two lovely indie brands, Elevation Polish and Chaos & Crocodiles.  I know, I'm sorry to show something which is no longer available but hope you can enjoy the polishes and see what sort of lovely things these two brands create. 

Midnight Snowball Fight: Chaos & Crocodiles and Elevation Polish Collaboration Duo

The duo is composed of a great creme polish and a glitter topper in a clear base. The Elevation half of the duo, Evening In The Woods, is a blue/teal creme packed with shimmer/micro-flakes in copper, gold, bronze, green and a tiny touch of pink! It is stunning and so complex. I used 2 coats of Evening In The Woods. Formula was great as usual with Lulu's polishes and this was nearly even a one-coater!

The Chaos & Crocodiles half of the duo, Copper Creek Cabin, is a clear based topper full of copper glitter in various shapes and sizes, with white glitter and white hearts as well as a ton of iridescent glitter and shimmer. I chose to use one coat of Copper Creek Cabin on two of my nails as accents for a fun mix and to be able to enjoy Evening In The Woods alone on some of my nails without covering it up too much. The formula on Copper Creek Cabin was great. I didn't really have to fish for any glitter and found that it spread out quite nicely over the nail without too much effort.

I decided to add a tiny bit of nail art to my manicure in the form of some dots on the plain nails. I used 4 different sized dotting tools to create dots along one side of my nail, decreasing in size from the cuticle to the tip in Essie Penny Talk to match the copper glitter in Copper Creek Cabin. Penny Talk is a great metallic to have in your collection as it makes a pleasant change from the usual gold and silver metallics. It was so perfect for what I wanted to do on this mani.

I loved the way this mani turned out. What do you think of it? Be sure to head over to see Jacki's post using this duo too, it's really stunning! Be sure to check out her blog while you're there if you don't already know it. She has great swatches and nail art and is always coming up with somthing fun.
