Kiko 255 and 296

Hey people! How are you doing on this beautiful sunny day? Hope you're having a good one! As already mentioned, I have tons of stuff to show you, so I'm combining colours of the same brands in one post. It's more interesting that way too, I think. 

Today I have another two Kikos. I've shown you couple of colours before and I must say, their quality still impresses me. The formula and the brush and the colours. All of them awesome. So if you get the chance to grab a few bottles, do not hesitate! 

First the number 255. I dare say this is the star of Kiko line. Everybody seems to love this colour. And so did I on the swatches. On my hands, alas, not so much.




Don't ask me why I didn't like it, I don't know. It's not like I hated it ... just didn't like it as much as I thought I would. Great formula though! I needed three coats. Oh yes, I did a video of all the sparkling for ya too:

And now the second one, called, very originally, 296. A wonderful bright spring green. That was a bit of a diva to photograph. 




Take the first almost-neon photo and then calm it down a bit, but not as much as it is on the other two photos. Then you get the vibrancy that is 296! It's a really bright green, but not neon. My kind of green! Formula, of course, superb. Two coats. I freakishly loved this one. Must wear it again asap.

So yeah ... Kiko is really great. I wish they'd bring them to Slovenia too. What's your experience with Kiko?

Thank you for reading!

  1. The products from KIKO have names, but they are only on the websites. They should have it on the packagings too!

  3. As Ana Rita said Kikos actually have names! 255 is Violet Microglitter and 296 is Meadow Green. I have 255 myself and I quite like it actually! Too bad you were not completely satisfied with it :( My favourite Kiko is still 346 though! I'm lucky I have a store 5 minutes drive from home!

    1. Yeah, I keep forgetting about the names. Probably because they feel more like a description than a name to me. :D
      Oooh, 346!!! It's my most wanted Kiko, I cannot get over how brutally AWESOME it looks!! And i'd totally love to have a Kiko store that close. *dreamy sigh*

  4. Uf, kako bi želela preizkusiti kakšen Kiko lak... Do sedaj še nisem imela priložnosti, v prihodnosti pa vsekakor nameravam dobiti kakšnega lepotca. Všeč mi je vijoličen in popolnoma razumem tvoje nenavdušenje nad njim. Meni ponavadi taki šimrasti laki izgledajo super na drugih in bleh na meni.

    1. Jaz sem imela srečo, da se je kolegica spomnila name, ko je bila v Italiji. Enega pa sem dobila iz Španije. Sicer bi tudi jaz še kar se le slinila nad swatchi. Ampak so super, res škoda, da jih še te dve uri čez mejo ne potegnejo. :/

  5. I own the first one, 255, and I experienced the opposite as you did. At a first sight I've been skeptical about it, but once I tried it, I deeply fell in love with its finish!
    Who knows?! ^__^

  6. I have #296 and it's probably my fav Kiko polish!
    I like this brand in general (even if some beauty products are epic fails!) and I love a lot of nail polishes from permanent collection. I don't know why but I appreciate a lot less polishes from limited edition, maybe because they are more expensive than usual but they don't are original or unusual at all.

    1. Oh yes, 296 is awesome. I really need to wear it more often. As for LE I don't see them at all, usually, but I feel that in general LEs are overrated, to tell you the truth.
