Recent NOTD: Orly Galaxy Girl

I'm a fan of Orly (which I say, "oar-lee", because when I first started buying their stuff LOLspeak wasn't around and "oh really" never occurred to me), so I consider it quite restrained behavior that I have not yet bought the whole Cosmic FX collection since not only does it come from one of my favorite brands but it's chock full of multichrome shimmery goodness, which appeals to the color lover in me. Today I have Galaxy Girl, which I wore for almost a week I liked it so much (that means I might catch up with my NOTD bit sooner). This one gave me fits trying to capture its complex nature with the camera, so I am going to share a whole bunch of pictures and hope you can get some idea of what was going on.

This first set is indoors, in indirect light.

And here it is outside in the sunshine:

And indoors in low light:

Indoors, direct light, looking sort of silver-y:

Finally, in my car a couple days after I put it on:

I really like this one. I've read it described as a "bruise" color, but this is much prettier than any bruise I've ever gotten.


  1. I wish I bruised like that. But as far as I know, Orly really is pronounced Orly... O Rly is younger than the brand, I think.

  2. I'm wearing this one for the second time already which never happens! New love! Great pictures!

  3. I went to my ULTA but they're all gone. I have to check my CVS now.

  4. I adore this collection but haven't been able to get my hands on it yet! The perils of international shipping mean I don't buy many nail polishes until I have enough money for a decent amount to make it for the crazy shipping prices.

  5. OMG, this one looks amazing!!! Can't believe I still don't have it! :D

  6. You have sunshine? I'm so jealous :)

    I love this color, its awesome for fall! :0

  7. I didn't get this colour! I don't have this and rocket science. Your pics are making me regret that decision!

    One hell of a hot bruise I tells ya.


Thank you for reading and commenting! I greatly appreciate knowing I'm not just talking to myself here. :) I'm moderating most comments now due to the spate of spammers who claim to be looking for sexy times.
