I have done this combination but it’s my favorite combination and use of Sephora X Chaotic, and was very well received by my friends, I decided to do one more posting of it. (Sorry for my amateurish photos. )
I think this combination works well because Melissa is light in color, and Chaotic has more black glitters than white glitter. Melissa’s shiny, but not shimmery enough to overpower Chaotic’s cool effect.
I have not done a post only on Melissa, but Melissa has this green glow especially under intense lights. Chaotic is nice on top of other colors, but it’s more special over Melissa. I hope you see what I mean.
My Melissa is getting sticky, however. I do think that I will need to get a second bottle since I love this color.
One more photo of this duo… (From indoor setting under incandescent light)
I decided to go with Julep Annie to use with Sephora X Chaotic!
I feel that it reminds me of a track suit, or even a child’s pajama. It definitely looks more playful than elegant.
On a side note, Chaotic is pretty easy to remove. Usually, for glitter top coat, I need to use one cotton ball for each finger nail. But i had to use only 3 cotton balls to remove Chaotic and what was underneath. Woot!
I finally got Sephora X Chaotic! I knew it was a nail polish that I would regret if I never got it.. so I ended up buying it.
I did a quick Google search of the swatches for Chaotic so far. One wonderful part of this top coat is that it would work well with many nail polishes.
To decide which color to go with, I tried different combination on each finger. I am not sure if this still can be considered as swatch.
Here are the nails without Chaotic. Just for reference, on the left hand (with yellow polish) :

Yup, I should expand out of Julep and Sephora.
Bold colors feel like splattered paint. I am not sure what the metallic colors ended up like.
Here is another swatch of Chaotic on top of Sephora OPI Let’s Hear It for the Spirit! I reminds me of … quail egg shells.
I will not ever use Chaotic on top of nude/skin-color ish nail polish ever again!!
I have one more example of Chaotic here, on Julep Melissa. Hmm, I feel that Melissa has been the best match so far. Here’s the image from it so you don’t have to click on the link!
I’ll do a swatch of just Melissa and Chaotic later for Chaotic Melissa!
I had to quickly stop by Sephora yesterday and BAM, Sephora had a section for new nail series called Sephora X. And Chaotic Top Coat stood out the most to me.
Here is the link to the nail polish. To describe it, this nail polish consists of clear polish, white specks of various size, black specks of various size, and black linear ‘specks’. I don’t know if I can post images from Sephora site directly, but it’s this one…
Since I was short on time, I just painted this over what I had on my nail already. But I can definitely see this top coat working amazingly with so many colors! I love that my nails look like abstract art now. Go Sephora!!! You are amazing!
Quick notes: Some of the ‘flakes’ are really big. This is a top coat, but in case the flakes are tipping out, or seem like they might come off, applying a clear top coat on top of it might be a good idea.
I have purchased so many nail polishes lately so I might not purchase Chaotic right away… but it’s so beautiful!!!!
