Orly Prelude to a Kiss

Prelude to a Kiss came home with me at the same time as the Dark Shadows Collection.  Because I bought it at Sally's I got the Buy 2 Get 1 Free promotion!  Dark Shadows had 4 polishes so I got another one for free!  I was kind of in a hurry and Prelude was just sitting there looking so cute!

Prelude is a very pretty, pastel peach.  I typically don't go for an "orange" range polish because they don't look that great on me, but it is so pretty! 

I am a little disappointed with the polish.  I applied 2 coats and it was quite streaky.  You can't see it in the pictures but there are bald spots. I'm not ready to give up on this polish yet...I see stamping and nail art in its future.  It might not be perfect but the color is beautiful!

I applied this polish without a base coat or top coat to show it as accurately as possible!

So what do you think? Do you own this polish? How was it for you?

    1. Just don't go all stalker and camp out the night before! :) But you might want to get there not long after opening because they will probably only have 3 sets. :(

  4. It looks really good on you! It's not a colour for me though - it wouldn't go with my skin tone at all. :)

  7. I almost bought this yesterday. I've been wanting a nude that is close to my skin tone, but I ultimately decided this was too peachy. It's lovely though!

  9. I got minis of 4 of Orly's Cool Romance Collection, including this one. I also found it a bit streaky, as well as the only other one I have tried so far from the collection, Faint of Heart. If I remember correctly, I ended up doing 3 thin coats to eliminate the streaks. Love the peachy colour, though! So pretty! :)
