Orly- Cotton Candy [Swatch]

Happy St. Valentine's Day, nail people! Here is a lovely shade: Orly- Cotton Candy.

Cotton Candy is a light salmon-pink creme; you could also call it a pastel coral.  It's very light and soft, but still interesting. 

Artificial light, three coats:

I kind of love this one!

Mixed artificial & natural daylight:

The above is sort of the color temperature that it looks like most often, to me. 

Outside, shade:

Outside you can see it looks a whole lot pinker, but retains a nice coral tone.

It's purdy.  I am a creme lover, and this is a great one. 

Formula: First coat is streaky, and there were minor cuticle drag issues.  Second coat mostly fixed the patchiness, but I needed a third for perfection.  The formula is decent as long as you don't work slowly and keep brushstrokes to a minimum. 


  1. What a gorgeous, soft color! It looks beautiful on you! Happy Valentine's Day! :)

    1. Thank you! Hope your V-day was wonderful! :)
