Orly Cosmic FX

Orly Space Cadet - sunshine

This one is four coats. It is the most sheer of the six polishes. It actually has a teal blue base which disappears with each additional coat. It is funny to look at when you take it off because it separates into the teal base and the orange glitter on the cotton pad. The duo-chrome flashes teal/orange and red. It is an odd combination. This is the "dupe" for Mac's Mean & Green from the Venomous Villains Collection. The Orly version is easier to work with as the brush is normal and much easier to hold.

Orly Out of this World - sunshine

This one is actually a surprise stunner of the group. From the outside of the bottle it doesn't look too exciting but once you put it on you will be mesmerized. It is a dark vampy shimmer purple. The picture does not do it justice. This one isn't so much of a duo-chrome, but does have a nice shimmer and subtle pink touch to it. This was three coats. This is a polish I will be wearing lots next winter. It is stunning.

Orly Lunar Eclipse - sunshine

My second favourite from the Cosmic FX collection. This is a stunning shimmery blue that in the right light shines a purple/fuchsia colour. This is really hard to capture on camera, but is very easily seen from the outside of the bottle. Again not so much of a duo-chrome as some of the others but a very pretty shimmer with the glass fleck that they were aiming for. This one needs to be seen in real life.

Orly It's not Rocket Science - sunshine

This three coats. Again another polish that doesn't have the duo-chrome effect and is more just a snot green colour (sorry but that is what it reminds me off). It does have the glass fleck and a slight teal flash to it, but really is just a mossy green colour.

Orly Halley's Comet - sunshine

Three coats. Again no duo-chrome just a straight bright blue colour. It does have the glass fleck though. This would be a really pretty polish had it not been seen so much already. This polish has a lot of known "dupes", such as OPI Catch me in your Net. There is also an essence dupe (not available in New Zealand) and Zoya Charla.

Orly Galaxy Girl - sunshine

This is also three coats. This is purple with a teal duo-chrome to it. Again it is easily seen on the outside of the bottle. This is the dupe for Mac's Formidable! also from the Venomous Villains Collection.

My favourites in this collection are the ones that don't have "dupes" available for them. At least they are unique and pretty.

All polishes went on easily with no clean up needed. All three coats (except for Space Cadet which I used 4 for).

These are still not in shops in New Zealand, but keep an eye out in Farmers stores as that's where Orly is being sold now.

Lots of Love
