Kiko Nail Varnish | AimeeBellMua





Kiko Cosmetics Makeup Milano are my current fave makeup/beauty brand! 

They have amazing products across the whole of their range and the prices are very reasonable for such high quality products. In Leeds we have a KIKO store but if you aren't lucky enough to have one you can purchase online at http://www.kikocosmetics.co.uk/make-up/hands/nail-polishes.html
(Nail varnish page just because thats the topic of this post) 

As some of you may know, my day job I am a IT Service Desk Analyst for an IT company so I am constantly using a keyboard all day and have found that my nails chip alot faster than they would if I was working off a computer. Ive tried numerous brands such as Rimmel/Maybelline etc, but they all seem to chip in no time and have a dull appearance unless using a high shine top coat. But with these you can apply this with no top coat and still get high shine and the colour seems to last at least a week even with hardcore typing! 

The nail varnishes range from £1.50 up to £4.50 depending on what type you want to go for.

Above you can see I had a bit of a splurge so I could try the majority of the range. 

1. The Quick Dry Lacquer. This charcoal colour is what I have been wearing alot recently & quick drying it really is. After 2 coats you have a nice thick deep colour which lasts. I believe this one was £3.50ish

2. The 3 in 1 shine is amazing! You can use it as a base coat and top coat and leaves your nails feeling strong and shiny. This was around the £3.50-4.50 mark. 

3. The Magnetic Nail Lacquer, this looks really cool when used with the magnet which you can get with it and it gives you an awesome pattern to your nails. Although I prefer this just on its own as its a lovely nude brown colour, really in keeping with the nude trend at the moment & looks great with tanned skin. I picked this up in the sale for an amazing £1.50!! 

4. Finally I picked up the Fancy Top coat nail lacquers in 3 different glitter shades which were each just £1 in the sale. These look gorgeous over almost any colour. I have been wearing the blue glitter over the grey quick dry nail polish. The combo looks fab & the glitter really stands out and gives off a glossy shine to the nails. Some glitter polishes I fine very very hard to remove with nail varnish remover and Im very hesitant to wear it but with these products you can remove them in no time. 

Overall I am very very very impressed with these nail polishes and will pick some more up in the future and get some more colours.
