Orly cotton candy nail polish review

Orly nail polish review in cotton candy

 For the longest time ever I have always wanted to try out Orly nail polish. So when I  saw that cvs is having a 50% off on the whole Orly line I quickly picked it up. If you guys are a fan of Orly, head over to cvs right now before  they sell out. I got mines for ~4 after the sale. Now onto my review.

orly nail polish in cotton candy that is light pink and opaque

Out of all the colors I think cotton candy is the prettiest. Its a light pink opaque color leaning towards the salmon color. I would say the color looks more like the second picture. One coat is opaque enough to cover nail line but this is by far the streakyest nailpolish I have ever tried. I had to apply 3 coats so that the streaks would not be apparent. The application was horrible and I think its due to the brush- it was stiff and doesn't spread the color- just streaks its. I am usually in a good mood putting on my nail polish, while putting this nail polish on, I was just so frustrated at the brush and streaks.

Thankfully, the color came out opaque, shiny, and it lasted 3-4 days before starting to chip.

Overall I would not try Orly again. sticking to my holy grail Essie and OPI. I wanted to like Orly with its nice grip but the application was such a horrible experience I would not go back to it again.

If you have a better experience with Orly or any other nail polish you like please comment away.

Thanks for reading

That Winter the Wind Blows Ending Interpretation

This is my interpretation of the ending of the korean drama "That Winter the Wind Blows" played by Jo In Sung and Song Kye Kyo. I also want to clarify some misunderstandings. I felt like they rushed the ending and they left the ending open ended with many interpretations which I hate but it allows us to interpret it any way we want it to be.

First off, I am a happy ending type person so I will interpret the ending in that fashion.

A lot of people were confused why Jin Sung stabbed Oh soo. He stabbed him because President Kim had his family and threatened to kill them if he didn't kill Oh soo. We see that Jin Sung was about to stab Oh Soo a second time but couldn't and watched him die on top of the rooftop. Some say what was the point of not stabbing him a second time if he wasn't going to help him anyway. It is his brother. It was difficult to stab him to death but he couldn't let him go either so he was torn between these to conflicts and could only watch him die.

The major answer to the story is that both Oh Soo and Youngie lived. Some say that Oh Soo must have died because Hee Sun asked Jin Sung what flower they should bring to Oh Soo implying that he died and they are bringing flowers to visit the grave. But this is only to mislead the viewers because after at the restaurant we see flowers on the table which I would interpret that they are bringing flowers to visit Oh Soo at the restaurant. Some say that Jin Sung was sad because Oh Soo died but I think he's sad because he feel ashamed that he betrayed Oh Soo to save his family. Although they somehow escaped from president Kim and death, Jin Sung is still remorseful that he had chosen his family over Oh Soo. If Oh Soo had really died, how would Hee Sun be that happy when she is visiting his grave?

The real main clue why they aren't dead is because they show Youngie interacting with her fiance and manager Wang at the welfare center. Unless manager Wang and her fiance and everyone else at the welfare center is in heaven, Oh Soo and Youngie couldn't be dead.

Overall I loved every bit of this drama aside from the ending. It was very moving and I cried in every single episode. It was filmed beautifully with beautiful casts and stellar actors that played their character well. The music in this drama was also really good. I like A Winter Story by The One. Here's a live version of it click here. I would definitely recommend this drama to anyone who likes melodrama and korean dramas.

side note:

in episode 8 soo brings Youngie up to the top of snow covered mountains. There were lots of branches covered in snow and there is bell sounds all around. He explains the "bell sounds" comes from the wind blowing on the iced branches. I luved that part. It connects the bells sound that Youngie cherishes with the title of the drama. Curious to how the bell sound phenomenon works because I have never heard of it before, I decided to youtube it to see if there are instances in real life and this is the link Well in real life, that "bell sound" is nothing more than crackles and wind. Once again drama life is a lot prettier than real life.

any other confusions or thoughts please comment

Have fun watching dramas :)
