Orly Cosmic FX Fall Collection Swatches and UPDATE on my dog!

Last night I ran into Ulta, to pick up a few of the OPI Swiss polishes, and found a nice surprise. They had the Orly Cosmic collection out! I bought one of each. I have been waiting to get my hands on these, and they did not dissapoint. Even though a few could be dupes, I think I would pick the Orly. These are just so unique. They have more sparkle and color then the dupes. Before I post pics. I want to thank all of you for your kind messages about my dog. I have an update on him. Mon. he had more blood work,a sonogram and x rays. All came back normal. We then moved on to the bone marrow test. I got the results back for that today, and there is NO cancer!!! Totally made my day. Made my week! I have been sooo worried about him, and the results. I almost made myself sick with worry. Anyway, my little dog is going to be ok! :-)

Now, to the pics. These aren't my best pics. some are kinda dark, but you get the point. ;-) I'll let the pics. do the talking. Some are kind of hard to describe without seeing them. First, here is how Orly describes the colors...

Lunar Eclipse Blue with pink purple FX
Galaxy Girl Blue with blue green FX
It’s Not Rocket Science Green with gold blue FX
Space Cadet Green with purple gold FX
Halleys Comet Turquoise with green yellow FX
Out Of This World Purple with pink silver FX


It's Not Rocket Science

Halley's Comet

Galaxy Girl

Out of This World

Lunar Eclipse

Space Cadet

Do you plan to get any of these? If so, which ones?


  1. I'm planning on getting Space Cadet, the rest I can live without. How much did they retail for?

  2. I am SO glad your dog is ok :) so happy for you girl!

  3. So glad to hear that your doggie is ok! Pretty nail swatches!

  4. I am so happy for you and Buster!

    Those are gorgeous polishes, but at $10 I'm really going to have to be choosy.

  5. Thank you for your post on my giveaway. I'm SO GLAD your doggie is okay. I hope that whatever is afflicting him, he gets better soon!

    I'm so jealous that your Ulta has this collection. I called the nearest Ulta (60 miles away) and they don't have it yet. :( This is the first collection that I've wanted ALL of the lacquers.

  7. That's good new about your doggie!!

    I went to Ulta just today and they had these. I allowed myself to get two. I picked Space Cadet (which would have been my choice if I could only get one) and Galaxy Girl. I'd like to get a couple more but, gosh, they are $10 a pop. I think that's a bit much for Orly.

  8. Mmm, if I pick any of these up I think it will be through an etailer as I know they'll be cheaper! I don't want to pay $10 for them even though they're pretty. I want Space Cadet for sure!
    Glad to hear your dog is doing better! It's so hard when they're sick, they can't tell you what's wrong. You must be so relieved! :)

  9. I'm happy to hear that your doggie is ok!

    I'm also happy for you because you now have 100 followers! (I just joined, so I am your 100th!!) Congratulations! :D

    Thanks for the swatches, I have been eagerly awaiting this line and your blog is the first I have seen to have swatches of them all!

    They do not seem as duochrome-y as I thought they would be, but they are still beautiful. I really like "Space Cadet" and "It's Not Rocket Science".

  10. Haley's Comet looks like Essence Pool Party?
    Really sparkly collection >o<

  11. Great swatches. I LOVE Out of This World!

  12. I want all of these, but my must-must-MUST-have is It's Not Rocket Science. Love that green! :)

  13. Jen...They are $10 at Ulta, but I had a GC so I kinda went wild! :-)

    AllYouDesire....Thank you sooo much! :-) It was a tough week, but I was soooo happy when I got the news!

    AggiePigeon...Thank you!! :-)

    swatchcat....Thanks!! It def. made my week MUCH better to get the news. :-) Yeah, they are pricey, but I used a GC so it didn't hurt quite as much. ;-)

    Lacquer Ware for Tips and Toes.....Thanks!! He's doing well. :-) I hope you're able to find them soon. I know TD is supposed to have them in stock next week. They are super pretty. :-) I knew ever since I fist heard about them, that I'd want the whole collection too!

    Kimberly....I agree they are too pricey, but since I had a GC that's what I used to get them. The two you like are my favs. as well. :-)

    Nicole.....I think TD is selling them for half the price. They are out of stock right now, but will have them in soon. I wouldn't pay $10 for each one either, but had a GC from my b-day to use.

  14. Frankenstyna......Thank you so much! :-) That's awesome that you are my 100th follower! Yay!!! :-) I have been gathering things for a give away I'm having soon, so keep an eye out.

    Anh Nguyen.....It doesn't look so much like Pool Party, but it really looks just like OPI Catch me in Your Net and Zoya Charla. If you have one, you probably don't need the others.

    Aurora's Nails.....Thanks!! :-)

    Zara....I love it too! I was actually really surprised by how much I liked it. It's a great color. :-) Very unique.

    Ariana....It's a great color! :-) I hope you find it soon.

  15. wowzers! I have to hunt some of these down soon!

  16. Thanks, Jackie! :-)

    Danielle....Which colors do you want? Or do you want them all?!
