This September, ORLY’s Cosmic FX Collection will launch. According to ORLY, these polishes have a textured finish that have multi-dimensional flashes of shine as a result of “MINERAL FX” technology. This technology uses a mix of natural rock minerals, crystals, and glass that give these shades an optical effect. All six shades will retail for $10 each and are limited edition.
The MINERALFX technology includes specialty mica, that allows for a clearer, vibrantly bright lustrous shimmer. Crystals allow for a multi-dimensional color transformation. Glass particles carefully controlled in shape and size create a luminous phenomenon. This combination infused with the Silica and specific colors selected create this exclusive technology that gives nails a unique optical effect that’s magnified as the lighting source intensifies or viewing angle changes.
ORLY completely hit a homerun here for me. Not only was this the collection I was most anticipating personally, but it fulfilled all my expectations. It did not disappoint at any point. The formula was nicely pigmented and not too thick, easy to work with, and the shimmer and glass flecks distributed evenly. I didn’t have any issues with drying time when I used Zoya’s Color Lock System, including their quick drying drops–I was typing away just minutes after applying the Hurry Up drops. I also love the rubber caps of ORLY’s polish, because it makes handling them foolproof.
