Kiko Haul + some swatches

Hey there,

As you probably know, my sis went to Berlin and brought us some Kiko...well not some... a huge haul actually. Here's a pic:



Kiko is a makeup brand based in Milano, Italy. So far I've only tested their nail polishes but let me just say they are pretty awesome.

I have a few swatches for you today (don't you worry there will be plenty more during the week-end).

The first polish I tried is Kiko - 340 (described as Celeste on Kiko's web site), a baby blue creme. It's perfect ! Seriously, the application was pretty good, two coats for full coverage, no shrinkage... It's a bit darker than OPI - What's with the cattitude ?

Then I tried another gorgeous polish: 311 (can't bear the number name thing... This one is described as Rosa Elettrico). This is a fuchsia with very subtle golden shimmers. Here again the application was flawless, the formula is really easy to work with. So far so good, Kiko totally nailed it with this two polishes. Let's hope the other one are as perfect as those two.

So what do you think so far ? Are you able to get Kiko where you live ? I don't and I can't help myself to think that's a shame... Fortunately, Switzerland has commun borders with Italy and Germany. And if you know Kiko, which is your favorite shade ?

Thanks for stopping by,
Take care
xoxo
