Nails: Orly Prelude to a Kiss.

Orly Prelude to a Kiss. ♦ Mini 5.3ml £5 from Boots. // Full Size 18ml £7.50 from Beauty Bay.
Firstly, please please please forgive my terrible nail painting skills! This is the first time I have had nails to paint in well over a year thanks to me finally kicking my terrible nail biting habit, and it's safe to say they're not in the best condition at the moment. I don't think I'll ever make a good nail blogger but this shade was too pretty not to share!

Prelude to a Kiss from Orly is a gorgeous pale peachy pink creme that is surprisingly not all that difficult to apply. If you're careful two coats would be perfect but if you're a little clumsy like I am, then I would say a third coat is needed to even the colour out as it can be a little streaky.

Recently, especially on Tumblr, I have been seeing lots of gorgeous nude peachy manicures with a few gold glitter accent nails and this is the perfect polish to use for that. I'm already super excited to dig out my glitter polishes and have a go at recreating that look for myself. This colour is super sophisticated, pretty & girly and I think a bit of glitter will add a touch of fun while still keeping that polished, elegant edge.

Have you tried this shade from Orly? 
What is your current favourite nude nail polish? I would love to know!

  2. This is such a gorgeous colour. Well done on kicking your nail biting habit :)
    I love the look of a nude manicure with a glitter accent nail, I do it with Models Own 'Disco Mix' a lot :) At the moment, my personal favourite nude polish is Topshop's 'Barefoot', it's gorgeous! x

  10. That's such a pretty colour, I've been loving coral colours over the summer but recently I've really been wanting rose gold and peachy colours. Good for you that you stopped your nail biting habit :)
