From SallyBeauty’s website:
Natural pearl for shine and durability
What I liked:
– neutral shade, perfect for any occasion
– good colour payoff
– lovely texture, easy to apply, no streaks
– fast drying time
What I didn’t like:
– chips quickly
I don’t know about you, but when I think about Prince Charming, I think about a blue suit, gold embroidery, a red mantle, a white steed.. definitely not muddy greyish brown shades. These kind of shades may be pretty and wearable, but still I wouldn’t describe them as charming. So, I’m not sure what Orly were thinking when they named this chocolatey taupe with grey undertones and a shiny finish Prince Charming.. Mmmm
Prince Charming may fail to enchant you with its colour, but it will make you fall in love with its ease of application and fast drying time. The consistency, which is on the thinner side, glides smoothly on the nails, leaving behind an opaque layer of colour with just one coat (although I recommend you apply two for a richer, more vibrant effect) with no streaks. In a few minutes, it’s completely dry.
However, Prince Charming has commitment issues. He doesn’t seem to want to hang around long. The day after I had applied it, I could already see some tip wear. On day 4 I had to remove it cos the chipping was beginning to be quite evident. With a top coat, you can make it last for a couple more days, but still I was disappointed to see tip wear and chipping so soon when used on its own.
Orly Nail Polish in Prince Charming is a greyish brown shade with a shiny finish, good colour payoff and a thin texture that applies easily without streaks. It dries fast but doesn’t last very long.
