Orly – Out of This World

I have to start off saying I love ORLY polishes – I love the the bottle, I love the cap, I love the brush – their formulas have yet to let me down. I passed on the Plastix Collection and waited for the Cosmic FX Collection. When I finally saw it in stores, I have to say I really wasn’t all that wowed by it. Sure Space Cadet is pretty fabulous – but it’s not very “me.” So last night at Ulta I picked up Out of This World. The display was completely picked over and all that was left was OOTW and It’s not Rocket Science which I know would look awful on me.

Overall – I think its is a nice polish. It is described as having silver and pink fx – I don’t really see it – It looks like a nice medium dark blue based purple with lots of microglitter.  Actually,  it reminds me alot of OPI’s Visions of Sugarplums. The application was good – very opaque and I only needed two coats. I don’t think it’s worth 10$ because to be honest – it’s just not that amazing. Nice? Sure, but if you have anything similar, you really don’t need this one.

Happy Holiday Weekend!



  1. That color looks really nice on your nails. I may have to go back & buy it!

    I have: It’s Not Rocket Science, Space Cadet & Galaxy Girl. I was expecting INRS to be my favorite, but it turned out to be Space Cadet.

    I’ve bought/liked other Orly polishes, but this has to be their best yet!

    1. As a whole I think the collection is pretty great- and a great move for Orly. I’m just not entirely sure they’re worth 10$- How do you like Galaxy Girl and It’s not Rocket Science?

    1. Thank you! It’s definitely pretty. It’s starting to grow on me more and more – the application was just so awesome I could hardly stand it. What do you have from the FX Collection?

      1. I have OotW, Galaxy Girl and Space Cadet so far, but I want Haley’s Comet was well.

        I already have Sparitual Optical Illusion, so I figured I didn’t need It’s Not Rocket Science. I don’t wear blue much so I didn’t need Lunar Eclipse either (ordered Royal Navy instead :)).

        What about you?

  2. @Regina – I only got OotW – the only two left in the display were OotW and Rocket Science – and I just KNOW Rocket Science would look so bad on me! And I’ve been lemming Royal Navy – haven’t given in yet 🙂

What do you think?
