For those who don't know what I am talking about (Follow me through Facebook to know a lot more!) I am making an Indie Guide A-Z! This will be a huge project and a enormous pleasure to do! So .. what am I going to do? Everyday, I'm going to show you a different brand of Indie Nail Polishes (and some of their major stockists too!! )

Your Name: Sarey

Brand Name: Chaos & Crocodiles

Where are you from? Maryland, USA

When have you started? I first started making polish in 2011, and I opened my shop on June 24, 2012.

Is there a story behind the name of your brand? Oh yes! When I was trying to come up with a name, I made lists and lists of ones that I liked, but there was nothing that jumped out as being “the one.” After staying up really late one night and going through potential names, I realized that I wasn’t going to figure it out right then and decided to go to bed. I woke up the next morning believing that I had named my shop Chaos & Crocodiles. I have absolutely no idea where it came from, but it really works because it represents living my dreams, following my heart, and being bold and unique. Plus, it’s a fun name, and C&C is all about fun. :-)

How many polishes/collections have you created? I’ve released over 70 polishes so far, but I have created hundreds of prototypes.

Is there a special polish/collection? Why? 
They are all special in different ways. :-) To get into the shop, each polish has to pass a test (along with the usual quality testing). The test is that I have to want to stare at the polish for long periods of time while wearing it, and hug the bottle and and carry it around with me everywhere. Oh, and talk to it when nobody else is looking and make it a tiny bed. I was just kidding about the last ones... Or was I?

Where you a polish addicted before starting making polishes? Yes! I’ve been into nail polish for a long time, and it also helps that I’ve always been completely obsessed with everything shiny, sparkly, glittery, glowy, and rainbowy. I get very easily distracted by those things, so you can probably imagine how I am while I am working on polishes.

Did you have a blog before making polishes or have you started one after?
I started a blog after I began making polishes.

Whats your favorite thing about making polishes? Squee! Polish making is a dream come true and I adore EVERYTHING about it. But if I had to choose, I’d say my number one favorite is my customers. They are amazing people, and I’ve so enjoyed getting to know them. I love talking to them, and I always get really excited when they talk about their C&C polishes or show me their bottle and swatch pictures. It’s really cool to look at the polishes I’ve made through someone else’s eyes!

Can you tell us a curious thing that has happened to you with some client or something funny? When I first started making polish, I didn’t always put the lids all the way back on things when I was going to be using them again immediately (I bet you can guess where this is going, but I’ll tell you anyway). I had just mixed together some beautiful glitters when I realized that I needed one more thing. So I set the lid loosely on top of the container with the glitter in it and went over to my supply station. When I came back, I picked up the mix to use it, tried to sit on my stool, fell clumsily off, and threw the container in the air. It was like being in a parade. I was in shock, but I think I was actually more upset that I lost the glitter than that I had made a huge mess. Now I tighten everything down, no matter how soon I’m going to be using it! :-P
