Pink Skim Milk... Otherwise Known As Prelude to a Kiss

Deborah Lippmann Prelude to a Kiss looks just like skim milk with a tiny dash of strawberry syrup. Totally random comparison, yes, but that's what it reminds me of. A little back story on this polish, I actually won it on Twitter from Deborah Lippmann herself! I follow her, as a good polish addict should, and she one day tweeted something like "The first six people to DM me their name, address, skin tone and hair color will win a prize!". I enter giveaways like a maniac (but rarely win them), so of course I entered. I was very excited to find out that I actually won!

I always wonder, if I had a celebrity stylist, what would they tell me to wear? Or a celebrity make-up artist, what kind of make-up would they advice me to wear? Well, now I know that Deborah Lippmann would advise me to wear Prelude to a Kiss, based on my skin tone, hair color and eye color. Kinda not my kind of color, Deb!

see how streak-free it is though?

Regardless of whether this is my kind of color or not, the formula is lovely. This is three coats and for such a sheer, light polish, it is pretty streak-free. Drying time was good, and application was effortless. I will probably never wear it for long enough to tell you about the wear time though, as this is such a tame, milky color.

I'm sure many women would love this polish, and I honestly don't hate it. I just don't love it either! If you love it, it'll probably end up in my Blogsale, so you can definitely pick it up super cheap there. It would probably be great for jelly sandwiches! Deborah Lippmann does have some insanely awesome looking glitters coming out for fall, by the way. I will be getting a few of those!

Deborah Lippmann polishes are available online at Apothica.
