Orly Prelude to a Kiss is a pale peachy cream with quick, easy, streak-free application. I was truly blown away by the formula. Most pastels are super streaky-not this one!

First coat: Looks very much like Essie Ballet Slippers. You could stop here if that's the look you're going for.
Second coat: Becomes opaque and peachy-white. Two coats gets you out the door satisfactorily. The photo above is two coats.
Third coat: A little more intense than two coats in terms of color. The warm peachy tone is slightly more apparent.

My only complaint is that I wish it had a more cool pink undertone. The warm/yellow undertone isn't as universally flattering. It leans more cream than pink. I may purchase China Glaze Pink of Me next, which is a bit more pink of course.

The color is kind of similar to Essie's Spool Me Over, which is more pink/peachy but tragically has a terrible, streaky formula that never dries. However, Orly's Prelude to a Kiss beats Essie's Spool Me Over to a pulp in terms of application, durability and dry time.

A really cute color, especially for the spring. However the application is terrible, the polish is way to watery. However I will keep repurchasing for the color

Beautiful white peach with great opacity nice neutral way to carry off peach without it clashing with certain outfits/colours. On a warm pale skintone like me I appreciate the peach undertone as a pink undertone but unfortunately this gives me the corpse look - unfortunately this is impossible to apply the formula is streaky and takes forever to dry

i believe this is from their Spring 2012 collection. it caught my eye as being very unique because it looked like a very white peach.
it does come off a white peach (2 coats with touch-ups), but the most interesting thing about this colour, is that it is kind of a nude on me. in fact i would really best describe this colour as an opaque, milky pink with an obvious peach tone. i store my nail polishes by colour, and this does not really fit next to my peach colours, it looks a little pink in comparison, and much lighter. i think this is in a league of its own when it comes to the actual colour because it's delicate and feminine, but still quite a statement shade because of the paleness!
some may find this a LITTLE thick. but that is because of the white in the colour. it personally doesn't bother me, but if you want a thinner formula, perhaps find a similar colour that has less white in it.
i recommend!

Very nice shade overall, but just not flattering with my skin tone. This would go best with girls that have olive/yellow skintones. Just not for me but otherwise very pretty as well as classy and soft nail color. Does not go on streaky either.

Like most white-based polishes, Prelude to a Kiss is a pain to apply, but the color is unbeatable. It's a very pale peachy pink that whispers "elegance". One of my favorite springtime/work-appropriate colors.
