Orly-Cotton Candy

Cotton Candy is a medium toned peachy pink with a cream finish.  The color is really cute, but the formula was awful.  Really, truly awful.  I think I may have gotten a dud bottle because the other reviews a read about it said the formula was decent.  For me it was incredibly thick and stringy like no one's business.  I ended up with tons of bubbles :(  I decided to thin it a bunch, shake it like crazy and let it set out overnight to let the bubbles get out of it.  I put it on again, and still had bubbles.  These photos are the second round of swatching, so there's bubbles, but not as many as the first time.  I had to use three coats both before and after thinning to get it even.

Does anyone have any tips on how to combat bubbles?  I've tried everything I know to get rid of them, but nothing has worked.  And it's a real shame because the color is adorable.

Thanks for reading, love you all!


  1. I've never had problems with bubbles. I say toss it haha! The color is pretty though!

  2. What a gorgeous color!! I can't believe the formula was so awful for you, Orly is usually so great! :( I have never had a problem with bubbles so sadly I don't have any advice!

  3. Such a pretty pink! And I have the same problem with bubbles - even if I let the polish dry a long time and then put second coat or top coat, it still is bubbly. :/

  4. Such a pretty colour - shame about the bubbles :(

  5. it's so sad the forumla was not so great...the color is so pretty.
    I had some bubbles issues with a Catrice polish (Iron maiden) but never figured out why...normally I love this I don't know what you should do.
    I would have say, try to thin it but you already did it...maybe you shouldn't shake the bottle too much cos it created bubbles...just try to add thiner and roll the bottle lightly and then polish your nails...
