In an attempt to start reviewing nail polishes again and better I thought I would start doing wear tests, showing the build up of layers when applying and how it looks each day up until it chips or I get bored and take it off. So let me know what you think of this format for review. Today is the turn of the Kiko Milano Nail Lacquer in 521 Pearly Ocean, the brand makes no promises so let’s see how it goes.
So I built up the colour over 3 layers although I feel like even with thin coats it looks great with only two, I am a 3 coat type of girl in order to get the best colour and longevity. Excuse my messy painting, but I love the colour of the Pearly Ocean Nail Lacquer a pretty electric blue with tiny flecks of glitter which looks so pretty without having the hassel of glitter polish.
After a pretty standard day at the office, sat at my desk doing work at the computer so nothing to harsh on my hands or nails. IT held up pretty much perfectly with a tiny bit of wear around the tips, feeling pretty positive so far. Day two was another pretty standard day at work, pretty busy but nothing harsh on my hands. Although I forgot to take a picture it just was just slightly more worn than day one.
By the end of day 3 I had managed to get a decent chip and it was at this point I decided to change my nails. I get bored of nail colours quickly and I did not feel the need to carry on until they were all chipped.
Although smoother than a traditional glitter polish, it was a bugger to get off and resorted to soaking my nails in polish remover in order to take it off. Which although it means if probably can last a while it will make it a pain to use in future if you want something for a day or so. Overall I love the colour, formula and finish and despite the fact I would like it to last longer because I do like to change up my nail colour regularly. It is a bit of a pain to take off and I will need to ensure that when I put it on, that a few days later or when I wish to take it off I have the time available to dedicate it. I think I will look at more Kiko Nail Products in the future they have a huge range of colour and finishes, that it will be impossible to stop myself picking up more.
The Kiko Milano Nail Lacquer in Pearly Ocean is available online here as well as in Kiko shops, the RRP is £3.90.
