Sponging: Glass-Flecked Pretties

I was pretty busy this weekend, so I haven't sat down with my blog and put up any posts and I apologize!   I have a post today though on the manicure that I've been wearing for the last few days.

Orly's Space Cadet from their Cosmic FX Collection is an older polish, but it was one of those that I wanted sooooo badly and my husband had to listen to me talk about for a week.  Everywhere I went, I'd see a few of the other polishes from that collection, but not Space Cadet.  Finally though, I managed to scoop it up in a blog sale one day, much to  the hubby's relief.  I really love Orly polishes because they love my nail chemistry and wear forever, but I usually forget this and buy something else.  

I started with a base of three coats of Space Cadet for this mani and I actually wore it by itself for a day so I could stare at my fingers all day.  I wish I was kidding...  You see that beautiful duochrome effect all up in that bottle?  All over my nails.  For serious, it's beautiful.

I decided that it needed to be more interesting the next day and sponged on Orly's Lunar Eclipse, OPI's The One That Got Away and OPI's Take the Stage.  I kind of treated them like galaxy nails, but stopped before I added too many colors or glitter.  

It was a really simple and quick mani, but I'm ready to get back to some more intricate nail art!  Tonight, I'm either going to do another Candyland mani or a Hello Kitty one!  Any preferences?

Thanks for reading!
