while I dont think this polish is worth the 10 dollar price tag, I do like it. I wore it 2 weeks ago for 7 days with minor tipwear and pretty much no chips. I did have to use 4 coats to get it nice and even. I do love all the different colors you see. Reminds me of my HG sally hansen nail prisim turquoise opal polish. That was a more blue/purple base than this but you saw the color changing just as much.
I'm not sure if I like this one... Easy to work with but I don't really knwo if I like this colour...I feel like it makes my nails look unhealthy and frozen :D
BEAUTIFUL!!! I love the colour so much!! It's green with a metallic purple shimmer... so cool! I applied two coats and it's the same colour you see in the bottle. Not too dark, not too light, just perfect for daily and night use. Works best with a top coat. That's a great dupe of Mean&Green by MAC Venomous Villains.
I'm pretty upset with this polish. The color looked amazing in the bottle, but not so great on me. It looked green with purple overlay. My biggest letdown was the staying power. After just one day all my tips of polish were coming off. Thats with Chip Skip, base coat, 2 coats of polish, and top coat. Will try this again, maybe I need 3 coats, but wouldn't buy again.
I saw swatches of this polish a couple months ago on Temptalia.com and completely fell in love with the pics. So i went the next day to Sally Beauty Supply and bought a bottle... it is the most AMAZING multi-faceted polish I've ever seen. It's got a teal/green clear base with loads of holographic shimmer that flash green, gold, magenta and purple. The effects in different lighting are awesome. It is my absolute favorite polish even though I had to fork over $10 for it. Love it!
Ahhh so pretty! Space Cadet is a sheer teal base with multi-chromatic glitters that flashes purple, gold, and olive green depending on the light.
The base is very sheer so it needs three to four coats to reach total opacity. Using it over a black base eases application.
I paid about $12 for Space Cadet. $13 is the maximum I will pay for a polish, but I would have bought this even if it was more expensive because it's just so unique! It looks really great with my skintone. I used it with CND Stickey base and Nubar Diamont top coat and have had no wear problems, I'm on day four right now and there's not a dent or chip in sight! I highly recommend this color, it's gorgeous!
I tested this color out on my pinkie before doing a full manicure. I wore it for over a week and didn't have any problems removing it with an acetone/glycerin mixture and Graham Hands Down Ultra felt cosmetic pads. It takes longer than a creme or jelly polish, but it's not too bad!
After reading all the hype about this color, I ordered it on-line. While it is definitely the most unusual shade of nail polish that I own, it is definitely not my favorite. I didn't like it all on my hands and removed it right away. I've left it on my toes and think it's just okay. More foil like than I imagined.
I'm a little underwhelmed. Would not recommend.
This is definitely the most unique polish I have. It has a kind of copper undertone with green and pink reflects. You can tell that it changes color when you move your hands. The application needs about 3 thin coats, and hasn't chipped after one week (I used seche vite topcoat.) I never really get compliments on my nails but I get them CONSTANTLY when I wear this. Its just so gorgeous. I don't think the higher price tag was really needed for this collection, either.
the only problem with this is that it's a pain to get off. i don't know why, but it just won't come off without force! minus 1 lippie.
This is such a fantastic color. The base is a dark green with glitter that flashes from purple to a goldish bronze. While I was wearing it I would constantly find myself looking at my hands. By itself it took 304 coats to get a good opaqueness, so I'd recommend applying a black base if you don't like applying so many coats. Even with it being thick it stayed quite well throughout a three day vacation. Taking it off was a bit of a pain because of the glitter, but that was expected. I don't think that all the colors in the Cosmic FX collection are worth the $10 price tag, but this is definitely one of them.
I love the color of this product. When I move my hand back and forth the color changes from a gold/green to rosy pink glittery hue!!!! It keeps me rntertained all day long!!!! :)
