In honour of the return of Stargate Universe, here is Orly Space Cadet! I loved the first season of SGU, it was so suspenseful and stressful to watch, I had to save up several episodes on the Sky plus so I didn’t have the stress of cliff hangers every week! I’ve caught up with the first two episodes of season 2, and it is just as awesome as I remembered. Though I was left quite depressed after ep.2, as with a lot of sci-fi, they tend not to be too concerned about killing off characters. :( It’s still great though, I can’t wait till Tuesday!
Anyway, moving away from sci-fi. Space Cadet was my ending job/back to uni treat. I love it! The first coat looks utterly rubbish. I was ready for a huge disappointment after I applied first coat, it was like watery green mud…which isn’t very nice. However after another coat it looked great! I love the duo-chrome of the contrasting green/purple colours. The base is the dirty swamp water green colour and the duo-chrome glass flecks are purple/green-y gold.
It took several pictures to try and show the different duochrome colours.
Another plus about these glass flecked Orly polishes is that they last for ages with no tip wear or chipping. The only bad point is they are similar to a glitter to remove. It’s not too bad really, especially seeing how nice it looks.
After snapping many pictures at different angles I just took a video. I know it’s not very good quality, but at least you can see the colour change.
