Kiko: 254, 266, 299
Hello! Hope you're enjoying your Sunday! I had such a big lunch I can still bearly move. So this break from studying is a bit longer, i need to get my blood back into my brains or it will be useless. I have three Kikos today to show you. It was my first encounter with this Italian brand with the set Tevta brought me one day. It's her style, we go for a cup of coffee and she brings out this big KIKO bag and says: "I bought you a few bottles when I was in Italy." Gotta love her. :) These are totally awesome too. And no, we don't have them in Slovenia, even though Italy is like two hour drive from where I'm sitting right now. Sucks, doesn't it?
254. These don't do this baby justice at all. It's a great great colour, but it wouldn't photograph, imagine loads of (visible to naked eye) sparkles more, giving a lot of depth to this colour.
266. Similar to Catrice Blue My Mind, but since I'm a sucker for these kind of colours, I drool every time it's on my nails.
299. The total winner of Kikos I own. Man, this is SO stunning. Teal goodness with little sparkles, too amazing for words. It's a total must in Kiko department.
The blue one, 299, is a two coater, the purple-red, 254, also, but I advise you to wear three, since you get more depth in the colour (and completely lose VNL), the teal one, 299, is for me a three coater. Someone with smaller and shorter nails could probably get away with two, but I had bold spots.
The brush on Kiko is fantastic. It's flatter, it hugs your nails so nicely. Application is a bliss, they also dry really fast. Really easy polish to work with in general, the formula is excellent. These three are my favourites so far, I have a couple more in the untrieds box, but IMHO the 299 is perfect above them all. I also really loved 254, it surprised me a lot. Both don't lose the sparkle/glitter that the bottle claims to have on the nail and that's totally awesome. Thanks, dear, for getting me these!
Any thoughts on these? Do you have them, have any Kiko polish?
Thank you for reading!
