Orly Space Cadet Nail Polish applied
Here are couple of pictures under artificial light (no flash).
The formula is very thin, although I believe that to get the multi-tone finish it has to be (Nubar Peacock Feather is similarly thin). I did need to apply three coats to get the finish you see, and the coverage on the tips of my nails is still a bit patchy. If patchiness bothers you, you would need to be more careful than I was in applying three coats, apply four coats, or else use a dark shade first as a base shade. Although I was able to do stuff with my hands after about 10-15 minutes, they weren't completely dry through and I had sheet marks on a couple of nails in the morning after applying at about five in the afternoon/evening. I didn't use a top coat though. On the plus side, Orly products are 3-Free.
So, it's a bit of a pain to apply and it also takes a while to dry, but just look at it! It's blooming glorious! My nails change from pink to green to gold, and it's hours (well minutes, at least) of entertainment during boring meetings. Space Cadet is very similar to 'Mean and Green' nail polish from the current MAC Venomous Villains collection.
If you google for 'Orly UK' a few stockists do come up who will ship them to the UK. I've never used any of these stockists, so I can't give a personal recommendation. If you're in the US, snap this up if you can get hold of it.
