Revlon - Cotton Candy/China Glaze - Medallion

this is the first Revlon I've tried in years, and it's actually quite nice! it's kind of sheer and streaky on the first coat, but is much better on the second. I was also surprised that it actually smelled like cotton candy, I haven't worn scented polishes in a long time so I didn't think it would be accurate. I did my nails last night and the scent has worn off since then, but while it was there I could smell it through the Seche Vite (after it dried, of course)...I wasn't able to smell it unless my nails were by my face, so it isn't overwhelming.

I also wanted to try a glitter...gradient...thingy. I don't actually know the name of it, if there even is one. it's where you put on a glitter polish starting at the tip and drag it about halfway down. I didn't look at any pictures for reference, but I don't think it looks bad for a first try. I used China Glaze's Medallion, and I love the way it looks! Cotton Candy is pinker than the picture shows, it was too late for a sun picture so this is the best I could get. you can see some of the shimmer if you look closely. oh, ignore my middle finger. I know it looks weird but I can't bear to file the rest down :(

by the way, I don't know how many CVS' are doing this, but one that I went to had two bins of clearance which included nail polish (I found colors by L'oreal,Maybelline, Milani, Nicole by OPI, NYC, and Sally Hansen). it's actually where I got Cotton Candy!
