L.A. Colors Cotton Candy

I have a tiny backlog of posts to share since I started taking pictures for this blog a couple of weeks ago!  Might as well go in chronological order, so my first post is about L.A. Colors Cotton Candy.  This polish caught my eye at the store a little while back when I was looking for something understated.  It is definitely sheer, but was easy to apply.  As you can see, there is still visible nail line after 3 coats.  That seems to be a no-no in the nail polish world, but with this being such a delicate, almost natural color, it doesn't bother me at all.  I think of this polish as a nail enhancement --like clear polish with a bonus-- rather than one intended to completely change the color of the nails. 

Sheerness aside, this is a very sweet pale peachy pink with an understated but unmistakable shimmer.  I find myself looking at my nails quite a bit whenever I wear it.  It lasted about 5 days of looking great without a top coat, not too bad!  So far I've worn this polish 3 times in about a month just because I really like it.

This one was hard for me to photograph.  Because of my negligible photography skills, the color doesn't really show up quite right.  In person the color is a bit more evident, and so is the shimmer.  You can see the shimmer best in the flash photo, though.
