You can see what looks like faint pink shimmer in the bottle but it doesn’t translate to the nails

Bang – bright orange with subtle floating iridescent pearl

When I wear Bang, I see the gorgeous bright orange. I have to be like 6 inches from my nails to notice the gold iridescent floating pearl. It’s definitely subtle!

Chaos – vibrant cobalt blue with floating tonal pearl

Chaos is a rich, blue. The floating tonal pearl is more visible on this one than on Bang.

I really love how  UD has been releasing 2 colors each season. They’re supposed to be LE but I haven’t seen any leave UD’s site yet. I really like both of these shades for summer. I feel like between the two, Bang is more unique than Chaos. I find Chaos more flattering for my skintone than Bang.

The formula was easy for me to apply. I didn’t have any issues with it pooling at my cuticles or dripping. I used 2 coats of each color for my manis. Since these just arrived today, I can’t speak to the wear time but with other Urban Decay nail colors I’ve gotten 4 to 5 days of wear.

With the Urban Decay nail colors you’re getting slightly less product than what I believe the average is for the price. By comparison, butter LONDON is 11 ml / .4 fl. oz for $15, and UD is 9 ml / .3 fl. oz. It’s definitely enough polish to take you through a season, but I felt I should point out the difference.

What do you think of the Urban Decay Summer 2014 Nail Colors? Which do you prefer – Chaos or Bang?

Pros

  • Nice formula
  • Bright colors
  • Cruelty free
  • Vegan

Cons

  • You’re getting slightly less than average amount of product for the price

      I love that blue, that’s a great spring color. UD polish doesn’t wear as well as other brands like butter London on me unfortunately but they are pretty.

      I guess these colors go well with their new Electric palette, but their not that unique to me. I’d pick Chaos, of the two, though. I think I need to go buy Zodiac one of these days. I love my Blackheart!

      I love the intensity of both the colors but Chaos looks gorgeous!

    • Justina

      These are so pretty!

    • Noelle

      Chaos looks like something I’d totally wear.

    • Amber

      They are both prettier on your nails, compared to in the bottle. Love Chaos!!

      I like them both but don’t know if I would shell out $15 for a bottle :/

        To be fair, I spend $15 for butter LONDON polishes

    • Kat D

      It took so much self control not to order ANY UD nail polish when I bought my Electric Palette. They are beautiful colors though! Gators, hahaha….I’m def not a FL anything fan.

        I knew they had to be like sports colors for some team, but I don’t follow sports so i wasn’t sure which ones.
