Why did I consider getting this?
To me, the Holidays bring with them ideas of bold metallic and shimmery colors. When I initially saw this nail polish I thought it was the perfect metalic silver nail polish with glitter for my skin tone. I was NOT disappointed.
Where can you get this?
I got the NARS Space Odyssey Nail Polish online at narscosmetics.com
What did I find in the package?
You get 0.5 fl oz (15ml) of silvery, bright and shinny nail polish.
Time to try it. What did it do for me?
This nail polish has a beautiful metallic silver color with glitter that glides easily over the nails. The glitter is not chunky. To me it feels like a true silver which doesn’t change as you go from inside to outside. One coats paints the nails fairly well, but it is when you apply the second coat that the true silver comes to life. The polish lasts for a week to a week and a half without chipping. I do understand that nail polish’s staying power depends on how much you use your hands, and whether you apply a base coat and top coat, but this is how much it lasted for me.
The nail polish is easily removed with acetone leaving no residue or glitter behind.

What is the Verdict?
I can’t remember the last time I bought a high end nail polish but I’m sooooo happy I did get this one! I <3 this color so much. There might be dupes out there, of course, and I don't know any myself, but I really like the formula of this nail polish and I am even considering getting a backup :-) Very highly recommended if you like the colors in the pictures!
