Hello! I've got a lovely polish from a new collection released by Kiko this month to show you today. This is Violet from their new "Perfect Gel Duo" collection. These polishes promise up to a week of perfect nails with no chips.
So, whats the score I hear you say? Another "gel" effect type polish? Well this one is just that little bit different... Each polish comes as a duo, with the colour, and a top coat, for the price of £7.90 which is a happy little bargain I think for two polishes. The top coat promises to be extremely hard wearing, and is light sensitive, so any additional exposure to natural daylight will improve durability.
So the directions are (helpfully written on the side of the box) are two coats of colour, wait two minutes, apply one coat of the top coat, wait three minutes - done!
I have to say, I am very impressed. This was extremely quick drying, and in terms of longevity, (obviously I change my polish pretty often!) but I kept this on for 5 days and it was still looking perfect, so I have no doubts you can get a week or mores wear out of them. Obviously - this isn't a proper gel polish, so no faff required to remove - just use normal polish remover.
The colour itself - very pretty - and quite an unusual shade. It's one of those colours that often looks nice in the bottle but doesn't quite match up on your nails but this one doesn't disappoint.
Final point - the top coat itself - I don't think there is anything stopping you using it as a top coat in general. I've tried it with some nail art and it hasn't smudged it when applying, so I think this will be my top coat of choice for the time being!
Kiko Milano Perfect Gel Duo is priced at £7.90 a colour (which includes a top coat) and is available from Kiko stores, or online at www.kikocosmetics.com
