orly cosmic fx collection part 2

here are the second set of swatches from the cosmic fx (also called cosmix) collection from orly.

space cadet is hot hot hot. and as my friend niki would say, it's made of awesome!  this lacquer is super metallic.  it's got a green base with purple and gold fx.  the most obvious color is purple but at the edges, the gold is almost always evident.  the swampy green base is what makes this polish the most duochromey of the bunch.  really head-turning and unique.  i would recommend if you just got one polish out of this collection, to get this one!

galaxy girl is another uber awesome polish. it's described as purple with blue green fx. it looks to me like it has a super dark maroony purple base with a flash of teal duochrome. it reminds me of beetle wings!  this is three coats.  and i think it is close to misa's embroidered enamel and urban decay's bruised, but since i don't have either, i won't be able to compare it them--although in pictures, galaxy girl looks darker and more metallic.

halley's comet is so cute! very summery!  this gal is glass flecked and glitzy. i love the turquoise color. orly says this is combined with green and yellow fx and i can definitely detect both in the polish bottle, but they blend more on the nail. i used three coats for total opacity.  i'll be doing a comparison post on this and zoya's charla soon.

from press release:  "The Cosmix FX lacquers will be available starting September 2010 for $10.00 each.  Available at orlybeauty.com, Sally Beauty, Ulta and other purveyors of beauty throughout the US and in over 70 countries worldwide."  i happen to know they are being sold right now online at transdesign.com for $5 and some other sites.  have a look around :)

soooooo....what's the consensus?  are there any polishes from this collection that particularly caught your eye?  i think my favorite has to be a tie between space cadet and it's not rocket science.  what i like the most about this collection is that all the lacquers dry SUPER fast and they dry SUPER smooth.  that is a plus because at first glance they look like they might be rough and chunky, but that is not the case.  they also remove really easily, not like glitters but like a typical shimmer polish.  are you going to pick any of these up?
