When I first saw this polish at Beauty Stop Online I thought it was quite the beauty, but that stock photo had nothing on the actual polish itself. When it arrived in the mail, I took one look at it and couldn't wait for the chance to try it on.
Space Cadet is from the Orly Cosmic FX line. They describe it as a "mauvey plum with green and gold undertones." My very first thought when I applied the first stroke was that this must be what fairy dust looks like. Seriously Ladies, it's that fabulous. No joke.
I applied it over my naked nail so I could get and show a true representation of what it looks like on. Although, I'm really curious to see what it looks like over black. The micro glitter is suspended in a base that looks like it's a teal color; very subtle, but definitely there. Enlarge the pictures and you can see the blueish hue at the very tip of my nails.
The color change is phenomenal. It flashes from a pinkish-purple to a yellowy gold to an almost chartreuse color. I love how in the picture above, the pink and yellow color change is split just about down the middle of my nails. It almost looks like two different polishes. So pretty.
The formula and application was a dream. Not so thin that it flooded my cuticles or so thick that is was difficult to apply. Just perfect. Two coats was all I needed for full coverage. I'm really impressed with this polish and am absolutely in love with it. Seriously, if you don't already have this in your stash, I strongly encourage you to grab it.
