Sunday Manicure (Vol.18) ~ a.k.a. “Erinetta’s KIKO Polishes (No.1)”

Products used: Erre Due Diamond Base Coat 6.49€ KIKO Nail Lacquer 347 ‘Dark Green’ 3.90€ Erre Due Ceramic Top Coat 6.49€ This week’s manicure is courtesy of my lovely friend Erinetta, who dropped by bearing KIKO polishes for me to try (& feature). Super exciting -especially since I love KIKO (& was considering ordering polishes online to check them out). First shade is a dark green that packs quite a punch. The gel texture formula is silky & thick and was an absolute pleasure to apply. The color payoff was amazing – you can easily get away with one coat if you’re in a hurry (or just bored). Drying time was fantastic and the “après topcoat” result looks shiny and flawless (& makes me happy). At 3.90€ a pop and with a range of 145 colors (!) I’d say these are definite keepers. Look out for two more colors, in the coming weeks. If today’s anything to go by, they’ll be fab… Advertisements

Oops, I did it again…

Earlier today, I bumped into a post by the lovely Ruth Crilly of A Model Recommends showcasing the KIKO Ultra Glossy Stylo lipstick set. Her little review led to my googling the brand (for those of you who are not yet familiar with it KIKO is an Italian based, professional makeup & skin care company), checking out other beauty blogger reviews of their products and visiting the dedicated website to check the range out for myself. BIG MISTAKE! A couple of hours later, not only am I registered with them but I have also put in a slightly obscene order – for about 80€ worth of products :O               I am now feeling guilty and over- excited, in equal measures, and cannot wait to get my hands on their package and start trying out all the new & exciting stuff I’ve got. I will be posting a (mega) haul review, as soon as I’ve got a chance to sample everything – so do check back if you wanna see …
