Candeo Orchid, the "dud" version

I don't remember when exactly I ordered this, or if I received it in a swap, but all I know is that at the time people were making a big fuzz about it.  This appears to be the dud version, since the original is magenta (?).  However, I love this, especially as a jelly sandwich.

Layering Order:
OPI Nail Envy
1 coat Candeo Colors Orchid
1 coat Deborah Lippmann Stairrway to Heaven
1 coat Candeo Colors Orchid
1 coat Poshe Fast Drying Basecoat
Deborah Lippmann Addicted to Speed Topcoat


  1. I had no idea there was a dud version. I have it, it looks red and some of the colored glitters melted. There was alot of talk about it on MUA/nailcare board. I emailed them about it and they said they reformulated it and will be sending me out a new one. Go ahead and let them know about yours :)

  2. *Correction* They said the bb's rusted and caused the base to turn colors.

    1. these have no rusted ballz :)

      I'm thinking there are more versions out there, this happens with indies >.>

      This one is a peachy caramel jelly, and has a glossy (glassy?) quality to it that I love

  3. I think this is still pretty, even if it's different.

  4. omg i have NO idea how orchid ended up looking like that?! Maybe they made a batch without any of the magenta pigment by mistake?
    Can't say I like it, but so long so long as you like it! xxx

  5. It looks pretty, even if it is a "dud" version.
