Orly Space Cadet – Swatch

Here is Orly Space Cadet – a gorgeous shimmery multi-chrome nail polish.

I’ve taken lots of photos to try and show all the colour changes – I’ve seen green, gold, purple and a grey tinge – and in dull light I have seen an awesome light bronze foil that just looks amazing. So amazing, in fact, I’d like to find one similar to that colour!

This is the closest I could get to try and show the bronze - couldn't get the lighting right with my camera.

This is three coats, and even with three you can see there is some sheerness issues in places, but its so beautiful and blingy you don’t notice (unless you are taking photos on the macro setting. In which case you will). This seems to play out most noticeably at the tips – which had a teal green tinge in between the shimmer. No biggie, and probably due to my application.

See the green/gold shift on the index finger? And the teal green layer on the tip of my little finger? Yeah, me too 😀

    Orly is awesome! I’ve only two of their colours (I don’t see the brand often around here), but this one is so unique! It reminds me of a Gosh colour I have called purple heart.

    • I think I have three, so not many more, but I love their lids. I get mine from Ebay, so much more affordable (they sell for $26-30 in the shops here) but I do like them. I don’t think I’ve ever seen Gosh nail polish – have you swatched one?

        I did a review on Gosh polishes last year sometime. http://theclassyanarchist.wordpress.com/2011/08/12/underrated-nai…-you-will-love/ , but there’s only one pic of the polish on. It’s actually the Purple Heart colour that reminds me of Orly’s Space Cadet. If you’d like more Gosh swatches, I will totally do another post. I’ve got quite a few Gosh colours.

      • Oh, please do more swatches! Love, love, love that they are cruelty free – its my main search criteria for products. I don’t always get it right, but I do try! They look lovely (the ones in that post).

      • theclassyanarchist

        Yes, cruelty-free is my main criteria too! 🙂 Thanks for following me! I followed you as well. I look forward to reading your blog!

      • Yay! I think the best bit about blogging (apart from being able to write whatever I want) is ‘meeting’ like-minded people from around the world, thats beyond awesome. 🙂
