Unfortunately there's no Monday theme post from me today. I didn't do it yesterday so I was planning on doing it this the morning and posting it then, but there was a bit of a storm during the early hours. As a result, I was left without electricity all day until it finally came back on after 5pm. So I've decided to just post a swatch I did yesterday instead.
This has been on my wish list for a while now, so I was really happy when I got it! Space Cadet is from the Cosmic Fx collection and is a gorgeous multichrome foil. The base may also be sort of a duochrome? I'm not sure but it does seem to switch between green and blue. But it may also be that as the color builds the blue becomes more green. As for the shimmer/foil part, it tends to be red/pink/purple, especially in the sunlight. But at an angle or in the shade, you can see also see colors like orange, yellow, yellow-green and green. The base also seems to be blue under the purply pink part. Can you see it in the photos? Which is why I'm wondering if there's a bit of a duochrome thing going on there. Overall, I couldn't get enough of this. Love!
I believe Hard Candy Beetle is a dupe for Orly Space Cadet. The Ulta near my home still had a lot of Space Cadets, but I know a different Ulta didn't have any. I've seen Beetle being sold at Walmart for $5, which is cheaper than paying $10 for Space Cadet. But Space Cadet is 18ml, while Beetle is 10.3 ml. So in terms of price/oz the price difference isn't as immense as it looks, but Beetle is still cheaper. It's really a gorgeous polish, so I definitely recommend getting one or the other. ^^
What do you think? Do you own any polishes from the Cosmic Fx collection?
I just remembered! This was bought with the $3.50 off Ulta coupon so with the coupon it's cheaper than buying Beetle (per oz)! :) Here's the link to the coupon! It expires 7/23 so definitely use it to grab yourself some goodies if not the Space Cadet. My bf actually alerted me about this coupon. Isn't he a sweetie? :)
