On last week's entry about Jealous Much, I asked if there were other comparisons for that Orly collection anyone wanted to see. Gail mentioned Prelude to a Kiss and Essie A Crewed Interest, and that's what I have to share today. First, though, I'll show you each of these light pinkish peach cremes on their own. Here's Orly Prelude to a Kiss; I used two coats, except for the nail that I smudged while painting, which needed a third to fix my clumsiness.
Both of these polishes can look more pink or more peach depending on the light. Above I caught the Orly's pink face; below its peach one.
Essie A Crewed Interest was three coats to get full coverage.
In the bottles, these two look very similar to each other.
On the nail, the Orly is lighter than the Essie. Top to bottom below: Orly, Essie, Orly, Essie.
The difference shown above in the bright illumination of my lightbox lessens in normal room light, to the point where when I wanted to clean off just the Orly fingers so I could do a full mani with the Essie, I had trouble telling them apart. So I'd say you don't need both of these unless you must have every peach creme ever. I'll probably keep the Orly and swap away the Essie, mostly because I like the Orly bottle and brush more.
