I mainly got it because of its name and scent. I wasn't even sure I would like the color on me but I love it! It's so soft and dreamy. I wanted to wear it because it's subtle. It's a nice change from all the bright, loud colors. The shimmer is really beautiful too. As for the smell, it's sugary and sweet. I've never worn a scented polish prior to this, so it took some time to get used to, but it isn't too obnoxious or overpowering. Top coat didn't make the scent fade either.
Unfortunately, I hate the formula. It's streaky and runny. I almost left it at 3 coats but I used a 4th for the dents and smears. It helped a little but some flaws are still visible. I hope it's not too obvious in my pictures. The drying time was too long for my liking. It kept denting, which I hate. I love the color, I just wish the formula wasn't such a pain. Maybe I'll have better luck with it next time.
Cotton Candy is the only polish I have like this in my stash, so it's very welcome, even with a crappy formula. So far I can't stop smelling my nails! I'm definitely going to get more scented polishes in the future.
