Galaxy Girl, I am in L.O.V.E.

I've been kind of on the fence about whether or not I wanted any of the Orly Cosmix collection, ever since the promo pics started coming out. And I went back and forth on which colors I wanted. Finally about two weeks ago I realized I wanted Galaxy Girl badly haha, so I put it on my MUA wishlist and figured I'd get it eventually. Then I was at Ulta on Wednesday or Thursday? I forget which, but I digress. So I found myself face to face with a brand spankin' new Cosmix collection display, totally untouched. And Galaxy Girl just jumped into my hand! Who am I to fight with fate? I had a coupon too. And I tried to resist putting it on so that I could get some swatching done, but that lasted about 36 hours. It's too pretty to resist. So here it is, in all it's glory! Lots of pictures because I can't get enough of it, just fair warning :)

Those are all in the sun, can you see the pink and blue/green shimmer!



First things first, I apologize for the tip wear, this is day three of the mani and I was kind of rough on my hands during those three day. Also I don't know why my hands look so old in these pictures. But I am sincerely in love with this nail polish. I don't have anything like it at all in my stash. I need back ups. Lots and lots of back ups. I want to wear this forever. I can't stop staring at it! Different angles let you see different colors (one or two!) of shimmer. It's so sparkly and wonderful :) Isn't it fun when a color makes you so ridiculously happy? This totally does for me. (If you couldn't already tell that, haha) What colors make you that happy? Are you getting any Cosmix colors? If so, which?

I have more exciting news! I have 49 followers, yay!! Thank you all of you lovelies who take time to follow and read my blog. I'm going to be having a giveaway at 50 followers, so hopefully I can post that soon! And I've already started gathering things for my 100 followers giveaway too.. hopefully that's not too far off either. So keep an eye out for the giveaway.


  1. gorgeous! This is sitting on my table for me to put on this week. Along with Galaxy Girl I picked up Space Cadet, its pretty much amazing and totally worth the $10 price tag!

  2. This is one of the 2 in this collection that I am drooling over! Sooo pretty!!! Congrats on almost reaching 50 followers.

  3. Very pretty! I'm definitely going to get some, if not all, of Cosmic FX.

  4. See, I've actually been sort of hiding from this release, simply because it is SO my style, and SO out of my price range right now. Well, not true, I could have gotten a few colors for my birthday, but I filled in some color gaps instead with my $1 coupons. :D

    Still, Galaxy Girl looks absolutely gorgeous on you!

  5. Pretty! I had Space Cadet in my hand at Ulta and put it back down because I just couldn't cope with the $10 thing (I didn't have a coupon). No doubt I'll cave before too long.

  6. I get wait to get an Orly Cosmix too! Your swatch is awesome, thank you. :-)

  7. Okay, so these came back in stock on the Transdesign site, so I ordered!

    I tagged you with the Sparkling Blog award:

  8. It looks awesome on you, and if it looks like this after 3 days, I'm sold :)

    I'll prob have to order the collection online, can't bear the retail price lol

  9. Jen, I think you're totally right, there are a couple from the collection that are worth the price.. and for me this is, no doubt!

    Megan, I love it! (have I said that enough yet? haha) and THANK YOU! I finally hit 50, giveaway starts today :)

    Zara, I can't wait to see what you choose from it!

    Laynie, aw thanks! And you got some pretty incredible polishes for your birthday haul!

    Karen, I can't wait to see which ones you ordered and see them on you, they're amazing. Thanks for tagging me with the Sparkling Blog award, that's so sweet!

    Asami, thank you :) Which one(s) do you like from the collection?

    Halifax, I'm just taking it off today, and it looks exactly the same still - on day 6! It holds up incredibly well!! Thanks :)
