Orly Cosmic FX Collection Part 2

Orly Cosmic FX Collection is one of the most spectacular, mysterious and wonderful collections of all time. Each having a perfect application, it's hard not to love this collection.

Orly Space Cadet is the most duochrome of the collection. The base color is...forest green?... Unbelivable, it is forest green! I posted a picture with only one coat to show you the base color. As you move the hand, the color changes from plummy purple with green irridesence to plummy greenish purple with green irridesence. You must see it to believe it. I didn't like it when I saw it on other fellow nail polish blogs. But when I saw it up close and personal, I was stunned. It is gorgeous! This is three coats.

Orly Out Of This World is the least duochrome of the collection. It is packed with lots of fine, shimmery pink and bluish pink glitter with a smooth finish. The base color is a wonderful purple with a slight green undertone. Despite the fact that it is the least duochrome, it is one of my favorites. This is two coats.

Orly Galaxy Girl is slightly duochrome with a plummy purple base colour. It is also packed with lots of fine blue, turquoise and green glitter with a smooth finish. This one reminds me of OPI We'll Always Have Paris but without the glitter. This is two coats.

Orly Cosmic FX Collection Part 1

This is the most anticipated collection that I've known for a long time. This collection contains 6 shimmery, glittery, duochrome nail polishes. There are two groups: the plummy purple colors and the blue and green colors. The application was great. Some of them needed three coats and some only two.
Let's start with the blue and green nail polishes.

Orly It's Not Rocket Science has an olive green base with lots of fine green, yellow and gold glitter with a smooth finish. It is slightly douchrome. This is 2 coats. It was the nail polish that I wanted to see in person from the promo pics. I like the colour more in the bottle than on my nails because it doesn't suite my skin tone.

Orly Halley's Comet is like a camelleon. It is blue-green in sunlight and green-blue in indoor light. In the photos below, the green isn't so obvious like in real life. It has a blue base with lots of green and golden shimmery glitter with a smooth finish. Most of you know that this is a dupe with Zoya Charla and OPI Catch Me in Your Net but HC is the most opaque of the three. It changes color from blue turquoise to green turquoise. This is two coats.

Orly Lunar Eclipse has the same wonderful blue base color as Orly Royal Navy but with lots of pink, fuchsia. blue, purple, fine shimmery glitter with a smooth, foil finish. This is one of my favorites from this collection. This is three coats.

Color Club Who Are You Wearing From The Rebel Debutante Collection

Hi guys! Today is a sunny day and I thought that it would be a good idea to post a light colored nail polish. This is not your normal, everyday, boring, neutral color, it has a grayish cream base with a lavander and pink undertone. This is a semi-sheer nail polish and is opaq in three coats. Personally, I adore this color.

OPI DS Mystery

It's such a pitty that this nail polish isn't loved as it should be. I saw a couple of reviews of this nail polish and the majority of you were disapointed because it wasn't holographic. I saw two new OPI DS polishes on Scrangie's blog that aren't holographic, too. It seems that the new OPI DS trend is not holographic anymore. Anyway, back to DS Mystery, this is amazing. It has a purple base with golden shimmer/fine glitter.You can apply one or two coats. In the pictures below there are two coats on the index and middle fingers and one coat on the ring and pinky with no top coat. As you can see, in two coats it is almost black but the golden shimmer/fine glitter saves it from being a plain, boring, almost black polish. If there is something that I hate the most it has to be plain, boring black nail polish. In the sun, you can still see the purple base. On the other hand, in one coat it is purple with golden shimmer/fine glitter. In my opinion, this is one of the most amazing nail polish that I have in my collection, even though it isn't holographic. Lovers of any kind of nail polish, you have to have this!

Zoya Adina

Zoya Adina is a stunner! It is purple with an amazing silver green shimmer. Unfortunately, I applied only two coats and you can see the VNL. I should've applied at least three.
