Urban Decay Chaos Nail Color
Urban Decay Chaos & Bang Nail Colors

Urban Decay Chaos Nail Color ($15.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is described as a “vibrant cobalt blue with floating tonal pearl.” It’s a brightened, medum-dark blue with a purple tint–just enough to make it a cobalt blue–with lighter blue micro-shimmer. It had a glossy finish when it dried down, and it was mostly opaque after two coats–there was a shadow of visible nail line that sometimes was apparent depending on the angle/light. Formula X Beacon (P, $12.50) is darker. MAC Blue Gaze (LE, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery. Illamasqua Force (P, $17.00) is darker, less shimmery. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pond (P, $10.00) is less shimmery, slightly darker. China Glaze Blue Year’s Eve (LE, $7.50) is a touch darker. See comparison swatches.

Urban Decay Bang Nail Color ($15.00 for 0.30 fl. oz.) is described as a “bright orange with subtle floating iridescent pearl.” It’s a bright, medium orange with warm, orange-red undertones and molten gold micro-shimmer. It was opaque after two coats, and it applied evenly without visible brush strokes. Zoya Amy (P, $9.00) is more shimmery, brighter. Cult Nails Ay Poppy (DC, $12.00) is less shimmery. NARS TV Party (LE, $19.00) is less shimmery. MAC Morange (P, $16.00) is less shimmery. Illamasqua Gamma (P, $17.00) is brighter, less shimmery. China Glaze Riveting (LE, $7.50) has larger shimmer. See comparison swatches.

    I’ve fallen for Chaos!❤️

  2. Adhishree

    OH MY GOD will you look at that formula! no streaking at all and the colours are gorgeously vibrant! Lovestruck.

  3. What top coat do you use? Your nails always look super shiny in swatches.

  4. Bang really is… *bad pun coming* bang on! Such a nice color!

  5. Both of these shades are gorgeous! :)

    Love blue nails.. in all tones.. puts me in mind of OCC Pond.

    I would buy these if I liked painting my nails. I would like painting my nails if my hands looked nicer… do you get lots of manicures, Christine, or are you just blessed? :)

  8. Both are beautiful! Chaos is my favorite, but of course Chaos is the perfect spring/summer color!

  9. I wish Chaos didn’t have any glitter. It would be pure love as a matte or cream finish!

  10. Chaos is beautiful! Bing as well, but I don’t wear orange well

  11. Gorgeous! And I don’t even like nail polish. That blue is among the most lovely I’ve ever seen on nails and the orange doesn’t trail far behind….

  12. I love Chaos, but I’ve seen the color Bang a lot!

    LOVING Chaos. I even came back to this page a second time to visit him. He may have to be mine.

  14. While I’m not interested in either I can’t deny that they look fabulous – so glossy!

  15. Chaos is beautiful! I think Urban Decay really “nailed” their varnishes this time :)

    Ooh, Chaos is really tempting me even though I don’t normally like blue nail polish (Which is ridiculous as literally about 90% of my wardrobe consists of blue).

  17. Elizabeth

    These colors are beautiful. I can’t wait to get them!!!

  18. When I clicked on this post, I knew I’d be in trouble. :P I have developed a love for orange nail polish. Bang is kinda banging!

  19. omg omg omg! When I saw the pics, I was like “Nahhh!” now I’m like “THAT BLUE IS CALLING OUT MY NAME!” I’ve never tried the UD formula before but, omg, that blue is unlike anything I’ve seen!

    I love these next to each other! Great combo.

  21. I love the colors, but at UD’s price point, I want more uniqueness!

  22. Oh gosh I really don’t need more blue nail polishes but Chaos looks so unique.

  23. I am in love with Bang!

  24. These two colors remind me of S Club 7! Haha. The formula looks so effortless.

  25. chaos is amazing! wearing it now and i’ve gotten a ton of compliments on it!
