Orly Space Cadet Revisited

Hi loves!!

  Today I decided to wear one of my oldest colors. I first blogged this way back when I had just started out and I remember thinking (and still think) that this color is one of the most unique and interesting colors out there, Ever. I know it has several dupes but regardless of that fact this is still a color that should be a part of every ones collection. Space Cadet came from Orly's Fall 2010 Cosmic FX collection. I'd say one of Orly's more interesting collections.
I love it in this light. 
This one shows the shift, kind of.
 I suggest clicking these pics for better detail. I was super excited to wear this again because last time I wore it my pics did it even less justice than these do lol. This is such a hard shade to capture.
I could have taken 1,000 photos of this color trying to capture its multi-chrome goodness but it's pretty much impossible. You guys get it though lol! It is a dark Green jelly base packed full of super micro glassfleck sparkle that flashes in Purple, Pink, Green, Gold and just about everything in between. For this mani I used Three coats of Space Cadet. Known dupes are Hard Candy's Bettle and MAC's Mean and Green.

Quick Note: Double up on the basecoat because this will stain like crazy!

Did u pick this one up back in the day?

  1. Yeah, Space Cadet is gorgeous! I still haven't grabbed it but I really have to!! I love this kind of original/special polishes!


    You've done a great job with the picture!! I've swatched a duochrome yesterday so I know it's not easy to have picture that shows the shift in color well! :p

  3. I have this one and two dupes (one by Sinful Colours and the other is Aztec by Accesorize). I still love it!

  4. I do have this one. My first attempt at it was a disaster. I was thinking about next time doing a black base coat and the layering up space cadet over it. What do you think?

  5. This is so pretty! I don't have it, but I do have HC Beetle, which I like even better. :)

  7. Yup! Although it was not too far back in the day. And I know what you mean by taking 1,000 pics of it and still not getting it perfect. I decided to swatch all of the collection this week and I'm having such a difficult time capturing good pics =| hmph! haha

  8. Oooh, this is honestly one of my go-to nail polishes. It is just SO gorgeous and unique (despite all the dupes). I can't believe all the colors that are packed into this polish--it's more of a multi-chrome than just strictly a duochrome.

    I love this polish because I can wear it on its own or just as easily layer it over another color. I love layering it over Orly's 'Liquid Vinyl' and 'Charged Up'. SO pretty, and I usually choose to layer it just so I can conserve how much of this polish I have, haha :)

  9. I think I may pick this one up while it's still available. I have Mean and Green and love it, but when it's gone I will definitely need a back up!
