So after picking up Orly Space Cadet countless times when deciding what to wear next and putting it back, I decided enough is enough, must try it out! Space Cadet is a real interesting duochrome where the color comes from particles, the base of it is sheer and kind of greenish. The particles are what give it color. Or colors that is.
* Very interesting color
* Dries relatively quickly
* Rubber handle, decent brush
* Tricky to apply, leaves patches of no particles and just the sheer greenish part
* Takes 3 thick coats to get it opaque and thanks to the patches, some parts stay a bit to the sheer side
All in all, it’s a great polish but I’d probably wear it over black creme next time to make things a bit easier for myself.
But! What’s space without stars and shiny stuff? Wondering that, I pulled this out (and quite apparently forgot to dust it off :D):
This is China Glaze Bad Kitty, sparklefest on a very sheer pink base. It has tons of multicolored sparkles. You could in theory wear it alone but that would take a zillion coats unless you like it sheer.

Ahh, hard to remove glitterfest that is just a wee bit over the top – my cup of tea exactly 😀 See you all soon and feel free to comment or e-mail me (firstname.lastname@example.org)
