NOTD: Revisiting Orly Cotton Candy & China Glaze Medallion

For quite a while I have had a color combination in my head, and I'm finally getting around to showcasing it-Pink and gold. For some reason, I have wanted to combine these two polishes in a manicure.  So to participate in Pink Wednesday, here is Orly Cotton Candy (revisited) with a China Glaze Medallion accent.  
Orly Cotton Candy was part of the 2010 Spring Sweet Collection that included other lovelies such as Snowcone, Pixy Stix, Lemonade, Lollipop, and Gumdrop. While China Glaze Medallion as part of 2009 collection in which China Glaze released 50 new glitters.  It is absolutely gorgeous and probably the most glittery glitter I've seen.  It is a mid-tone gold with multi-sized, multi-colored, holographic shimmer suspended in a clear base. While China Glaze has since released several other gold glitters, in my opinion, none are comparable. I need to get a backup of Medallion.




What color combinations do you have stocked away on your "To-Do" list?

Review:

·Color Family: Pink; Gold Glitter
·Finish: Cream; Glitter
·Opacity: Orly-2 coats for bottle color; China Glaze-3 coats for dense coverage

·Price: Reg. $5.99 but can be often found on sale at Sally and other e-tailers.
·Availability: both Orly & China Glaze can be found at Ulta, and Sally Beauty. However, Medallion can only be found through the online retailers now.
·Application: Orly-The first coat was kinda of watery & streaky, but the second coat smooth out the finish. China Glaze-since this has a clear base, it took 3 coats to get a dense coverage.


Grace, Peace, & Blessings.
