NOTD: OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy with Glitter Tips!

Three (3) Coats of OPI Coney Island Cotton Candy with Love & Beauty Silver Glitter on the tips and One (1) Coat of Seche Vite Top Coat.
Coney Island Cotton Candy is a very sheer, milky flesh-tone nude with a peach undertone. Prior to receiving this polish in a swap last year, I looked up numerous swatches and reviews for this shade, and saw so many differences. I suppose it depends on the actual color of you nail how this polish may appear, because many stated there is a pink tone to it. On my nails though, there is absolutely no trace of pink.
This polish is very sheer. It’s basically clear with the first coat and a sheer, milky beige with the second coat. It looks it’s best with three coats, but the color still isn’t completely opaque. Because my tips were still visible with the third coat, I decided to add some glitter to my tips to distract from my self tanner stains. I used Love & Beauty’s (Forever 21) Silver Glitter Nail Polish.
The formula is very thin and runny. Once the applicator hits my nail, a small pool of polish extends across my nail in an even layer. I find that it’s very easy to work with, but requires patience between coats. Once dried, it has a “jelly” polish consistency. So, to avoid any indents, a good top coat is necessary.

  1. i love this natalie! usually i hate runny and sheer polishes but this color is one of my favorites. the color is worth it for the extra work. mine is more pink than yours…but not by much.


  2. What's your favorite top coat? I HATE waiting for my nails to dry. Seche Vite ruined my nails and now I found out it can cause birth defects and problems with people's reproductive organs O_o
