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!

xoxo, K

    Please do make a post on how you remove glitter polishes.. i usually go through several cotton pads to remove it off ONE hand! :(

  3. I remember how you wanted this and I couldn't find it here locally for you.

    I have never heard of that method of removing the glitter polishes. Please do a post because I agree that removing glitter polish is such a pain!

  4. Love the sparkles! I pour the remover into a bowl and soak my nails to get rid of glitter....

  6. Oh yeah, absolutely show how you remove glitter nail polish...sounds intriguing!

    That's a fierce colour, girl...I like. I always feel bolder with dark nail polish ;-)

  8. I think it's worth it since it's very unique.  But like I said, drugstore nail polishes in Japan are like $10 anyway, so I may be biased!

    Wow, it looks like everyone wants to know how to remove glitter polishes!  I'll do a tutorial on it soon.
