I've had today's swatchy beauty sitting in the back of my stash box for several months, waiting for autumn to come around because I think it's a color that screams falls. This little baby came to me via a Geeky Owl blog sale, and let me tell you that rarely have I been so happy to take someone else's cast offs! Today is all about Orly's Galaxy Girl!
Galaxy Girl is a rich, brown-toned berry jelly, stuffed fill of gorgeous blue flecky shimmer that has a bit of duochrome shift. The first coat is a bit streaky, but the formula is easy to work with and the second coat gives full opacity. These swatches are 2 coats, no topcoat.
You may have noticed I've been in a "matte all the things!" kick lately, and this was no different. Below you'll see those shimmer flecks pop out all over under a coat of Sally Hansen big matte top coat.
So I know this polish came out in 2010, but I SO DON'T CARE! It ticks so many of my marks that I am excited to have it in my collection. I mean, hello? Purple jelly? Shifting shimmer flecks? Deep and vampy? Yeah. It's a keeper.
Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend and I will see you again on Monday!
