Nicole by OPI Carnival Cotton Candy

Today I have another shade from Nicole by OPI's Carrie Underwood Collection to shade with you! Carnival Cotton Candy* is the baby pink shade from this collection, and I definitely love a good pink polish, so I was excited to try this out. With Valentine's Day right around the corner, I think a pink or red polish is a definite must!

Nicole by OPI's Carnival Cotton Candy is a pretty blue based pink with a thick, creamy formula. I did find that this polish gathered on the brush, so make sure to wipe it off into the bottle before applying to your nails. I used two coats of Carnival Cotton Candy to get an opaque look. I did have some pulling at my cuticles on two of my nails, so that's something to keep in mind. I think that this shade would really pop when layered over a white nail polish, so I'm definitely going to have to try that out! My flash is making this polish look a bit more pale than in is in real life. In person, Carnival Cotton Candy is a bit brighter, almost verging on neon. This would be an amazing pedicure shade during the Summer when I have a tan!

Overall, I do like Nicole by OPI's Carnival Cotton Candy, but I also have a ton of very similar shades in my collection already. I think that bright pinks like this one are easy to come by, and I didn't find the formula of this one to be outstanding (it wasn't bad, but it didn't blow me away either). Are you a fan of barbie pink polishes? Have you picked up shades from the Carrie Underwood Collection?
