Science is far out, man... Seriously though. Space craft Rosetta was sent on a brave mission! To fly out to Comet 67P. After 10 years and 6.5 billion kilometers of travel along gravity assist trajectories looping through interplanetary space, Rosetta reached the comet on August 6, 2014. While in the comet's orbit, it found a safe landing site for the probe Philae, which will which followed! What an age we live in!
This polish is meant to represent the wonders of this voyage! I have taken a creamy gray base and made it matte, much like I imagine the craterous surface of Comet 67P, but I've packed this polish with a combination of micro fine holographic dust in purple and iridescent rainbow. This polish can be worn matte, as it comes, with two to three thin layers. Allow each layer to dry before adding the next. It will dry to a nice velvety matte shade. Or you can brush a normal top coat over it to make it glossy and really bring out the holo dust. I think it's really lovely either way!
Pictured above I've used three layers and then coated the ring finger only, generously with Seche Vite!
Select this polish in a 15ml round bottle or an 11ml square bottle.
My polishes are 10 free & cruelty free meaning they are formulated without: Formaldehyde, toluene, DBP, camphor, formaldehyde resin, xylene, ethyl tosylamide, parabens, phthalates, fragrances.
They generally apply best with 2-3 thin layers topped with a fast dry top coat.
I do my best to accurately represent the colors of my polishes in their photos, however, there may be some differences in the items dues to screen brightness etc. Photos are never altered or filtered to change the colors unless it is needed to more accurately showcase harder to photograph colors. Every bottle is carefully hand-mixed and the best effort is given to consistency of formulas, though some color and distribution of glitters may vary slightly from bottle to bottle. Shake well to help with any settling that may occur during shipping.
For an easy way to remove glitter heavy polishes try googling the "foil method".

I accept major credit cards and paypal! Payment is due at time of checkout. If you pay with an e-check via paypal, funds must clear before Etsy will allow me to print your shipping label. Sometimes this takes a couple of days, but it can take up to a week.
Current turn around time is listed generally at the top of my page and in the shipping information on the listings. Turn around time depends on current order volume and how busy my day job is. All items are hand made by me.
I drop my packages directly at the main post office and my packages usually only take 2-4 days to arrive to you within the US. Please note that shipping to other countries can take 1 to as long as 3 weeks due to international shipping time/customs etc. These things are out of my hands, but your tracking number will keep you updated!
I HATE that I currently have to charge so much for shipping internationally. Please note that I am actually charging you several dollars LESS than what I actually pay for the labels only because I HATE having to make you pay so much and want to give you a break. USPS raised rates this year and I do realize that the shipping costs more than the bottle of polish, but please realize that I'm paying even more for that label.

Came on Thursday. Had some of you polishes come up on a recent search and decided to check them out. Love the color on the Rosetta Stoned polish (with its matte gray and just a hint of sparkle) and its name too (liked all the names of your polishes btw) and the top coat is fantastic too. TY, hope to come back again (soon) so keep up the good work!

Rosetta Stoned is one of my favorite polishes of all time! I bought it originally in one of the mini four-packs and loved it so much I wanted a full-size bottle. Tiffany is also fantastic; the polishes are shipped super fast and I am never disappointed. Thanks!!
