Orly: It's Not Rocket Science

Here's "It's not rocket science" from Orly's Cosmic FX collection.  This green/yellow with some blue flashes is a glittery duochrome that has the Orly FX technology in it.

 Let me tell you a little about what "FX" is.  From Orly: The MineralFX technology includes specialty mica, that allows for a clearer, vibrantly bright lustrous shimmer.  Crystals allow for a multi-dimensional color transformation.  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.

I used 3 coats to build up the sparkle more, although 2 would make it opaque.  I like Orly's grippy contoured handle because it feels like I have more control over the placement of the polish which is important especially when using a glittered formula.   I took the pictures under a daylight bulb and you can kind of see the color shift, but it's really apparent in the bottle when I "shaded" it.

What do you guys think? How many of the FX collection do you own?
