NOTD and review: Orly Galaxy Girl

This is a review of the Orly Galaxy Girl nail polish. This was part of the Cosmic FX Collection and may no longer be available.  Iyah helped me to get a hold of this nail polish.

Color: Purple with red/teal flecks..

Price: $10

Pros: 
– got rich color with two coats (I cannot stand having to paint 3 coats)
– wore pretty well. I’m very hard on my hands and most nail polishes last less than 2 days.  This started chipping in the third day

Cons:
– slightly more expensive than Orly’s usual colors ($10 vs $7.50… which is less than drugstore price in Japan!)
– I’m not a fan of Orly’s brushes. I wish they were a little flatter.

As with all nail polishes with glitter, this is a pain to remove. I suggest using uncolored felt, or a cotton pad wrapped in pantyhose (one you plan to throw out, of course). Both methods snag the glitter and make it easier to remove.  Should I do a post on this method?

Hope you enjoyed this review!

Thank you! Love from Iyah

After reading about the new Orly Cosmic FX collection on Temptalia, I got huge lemmings… and Iyah kindly sent me some!


Space Cadet
Plum with green duochrome… or is it Green with plum duochrome?


Galaxy Girl
Purple with red duochrome

Galaxy Girl is supposedly a dupe for MAC Formidable, while Space Cadet is supposedly a dupe for MAC Mean & Green.  Both of these MAC nail polishes are from the Venomous Villains – Maleficent Collection.

Iyah even included an H20 moisturizer and some candies!

Thanks again, Iyah!

Thank you! Love from Macnunu

I got a lovely parcel from Macnunu for winning her contest!

I was FLOORED when she told me the prize was an Urban Decay Naked palette!!  WOW.  And there were even some more things in the package.

But the best part was a wonderful love note!  I love getting them from blogger girls!

Orly Nail Polish in Bailamos (from this summer’s Viva Collection)
with an extra top coat!
This product got an A in Temptalia’s reviews.  This is the first Orly nail polish I’ve gotten and i’m excited to try it.

Face Q masks (絶世美肌)
I’ve received one in a love package before, and it was great.  I’m excited to try these as well.

Cover Girl Lash Blast Fusion
I love the original Lash Blast, and I’ve been wanting to try the Fusion as well.  We’ll see if it lives up to the Original!

and…

Urban Decay Naked Palette
OOOOHHHHH!!!!!  What can I say? I’m at a loss for words.  I’ve read SO MANY reviews on this palette but I never thought I’d own one.  
Do people want to see swatches/reviews?  Sheila has done a great one.  I can try to write a review, but hers is much better!
Oh, by the way – Urban Decay folks?  This is my first UD palette, but I’ve heard a lot of people love this palette because it does not contain the infamous Midnight Cowboy Rides Again.  Why do you like to include that glitter bomb eyeshadow in practically ALL of your palettes?
Thank you SO MUCH to Macnunu for this VERY generous gift!
Side note: I mentioned this on twitter recently, but Japan Customs has been opening a lot of my packages.  It’s not anything new, but it’s becoming more and more frequent lately.  About 50% of my packages come with tape like this:

I’m not sure what they are looking for!
