Above & Below: The top photo was taken with an Ott lamp, while the photo below taken outdoors in the shade, reveals a more foil finish.
Below: In full sunlight, the purple glitter takes center stage, while the photo below this one again shows the foil tendencies in partial sun.
Below: The purple in Space Cadet seems to sit more on top of the green, almost as if I'd applied a purple glitter over an olive tone.
Below: My first thought when applying Space Cadet was that it was similar to the concept found in Sally Hansen's Emerald Amethyst (below). Certainly not dupes by any stretch, but the same color combination and duo chrome flash.
As with Galaxy Girl yesterday, I went with three coats on Space Cadet for even coverage. Like most of you, 2 coats is generally my standard, but these are definitely worth taking the short time needed for a second coat. The drying time on today's shade seemed closer to normal, and again, I am having a hard time photographing these shades for some reason. The color in real life is more vivid, and the glitter detail and duo chrome are more pronounced and defined.
