In my hope to start my week right by wearing a bright and happy color, I chose to wear another pastel shade. Still from Orly's Sweet Collection, this is Cotton Candy, supposedly a baby pink creme (as per official description of Orly) but turns a li'l peachy on me, it's safer to say that this is peachy pink than baby pink (and who do I think I am to argue with Orly haha). I don't know if it's the shade itself that emphasizes my coloring (morena) or if all pastel colors are like this on me. Either way, I'm ok with that.

Does the shade live up to its name? Does it remind you of cotton candy indeed? I think so. This is a li'l bright though. Even my favorite MAC MA, Carlos, can't help but noticed my nails. Bright but nice, as he said, "Bongga!", instead of nice, is actually the word he used haha.
Up to now, I still can't believe I was able to apply this without a hitch, no messy sides, no repeat application. Honestly, I decided to use Orly Lemonade on my mani session last week because I was afraid I wouldn't be able to apply it properly.
Last night, armed with an orange stick, cotton and a polish remover just in case I mess up the application, I started to apply Cotton Candy on my nails. And I finished my manicure without using them! That's how nice the application is! I wish it was more opaque though, I did 3 coats for this.
Nice job Orly. Can't wait to get my hands on the other shades from this collection!
