Tony Moly Galaxy Collection

Reason number one to love Asian polish - They do glitter, and they do it often. HOLLA!! This post is just going to be one shining example of this insanity.



Do you see that?! That right there is what caused me to stop breathing momentarily when I ripped open my package. GLITTER!! Crazy, complex glitter! And lots of it!

This post is going to be pic heavy because the awesomeness is too much for my poor little camera to handle.







GT01 (Mercury). Small square red, blue and silver glitters in a black jelly.

I'm big! Click me!
The least complex one out of the bunch and it's still awesome. The glitter is still very sparkly and doesn't get lost in the black which can happen when glitters are put in a black base.







GT02 (Earth). Blue and silver microglitter as well as larger pink holo glitter in a deep, faded blue jelly.

I'm big! Click me!
If only the earth actually looked like this. I think I'd turn a little cray cray.







GT03 (Mars). Smaller copper and blue glitter and large gold glitter in a burgundy jelly.

I'm big! Click me!

One of my absolute favourites of this collection. Mars is packed with the most glitter and consequently the most grittiest but that doesn't bother me. Dude... that blue and copper peeking out from under all the gold?!? My mind's going to explode from the awesome.







GT04 (Neptune). Small gold and silver glitter as well as larger green glitter in a dark green jelly.

I'm big! Click me!
My other favourite is the green (surprise surprise). *edit* I think I've changed my mind... it's a three way tie between Mars, Saturn and Jupiter. One day at Tony Moly headquarters, someone said "I like Sinful Call You Later, but I want something richer, glitterier and all around more epic." ...and that is how Neptune was born. True story.







GT05 (Jupiter). Small lavender and even smaller copper glitter plus larger blue holo pieces in a dark purple jelly.

I'm big! Click me!
Again that copper glitter! I love it! Such a sexy beast this one.


I got these off eBay here. The seller was lovely and even included a few extras which I thought was very sweet... check out this one:

Intense Repair Live Snail Skin. LOL. Yes. hmmmm.... I might hold off using that.

  9. That snail skin (aka toner) is awesomesauce for dry skin! They're all the rage in Asia right now, and supposedly have benefits like anti-aging, reducing scars, pigmentation and wrinkles, and just hydration. And anyway it has a really nice texture, not watery like western toners. You gotta try it at least once! And the glitters are absolutely FAB.=D

  32. Well, where to begin!?  I heart you so!
    I am really glad I happened to click on most actives on the NB the other night...and saw your post of them there.  I died a little.  Then ordered them all, immediately!!  I am so psyched about these polishes!!!!  Thank you times a million for bringing them to my attention.  <3  AMAZING pictures!

    Also, is it wrong that I hope I do not receive live snail skin in my package?!
