KIKO Nail Polish

Whilst on holiday I picked up a few items from cosmetics store KIKO  I picked up some nail varnishes plain and crackle and an eyeshadow that was a very similar colour to one that I have had my eye on for ages in MAC.  I will try and review it over the next few weeks.  

I was really impressed with the nail varnishes that I bought and I have decided to share one of my favourites with you.  

I choose a colour that I think is a type of heather/grey the number on the back does not correspond to the colours on the UK website so I apologise that I cannot tell you the exact colour, I whizzed through the swatches and I think it is number 380 (medium grey).  The nail varnishes were reduced to €1.50 each and they are £1.50 on the website which is very similar to the ELF prices.  Whilst I was in store lots of people were stocking up on the varnishes including one person who spent over €60 and left with a huge bag of colours.  The polish stays chip free for roughly 2-3 days.

The brush is nice and wide and application is very easy.  I applied two coats and found that this was a very good coverage the varnish is quick to dry which is also a plus.  I really like wearing this shade for day to day wear and I have added a coat of the Hed Kandi Models Own polish when going out.  Apologies for the pictures I took them quickly before tidying up the edges of my nails as I was in a rush.  

What do you think of the colour? Have you tried anything from the KIKO range before? I will probably order more of these in the future as I have been really impressed with the quality and when I have looked online I have seen a few colours I love that were not available in store.
